Unnecessary Loss of Life

Wed, 2015-09-30 20:00
War is nasty, brutal and costly. In our latest wars, many of the casualties suffered by American troops are a direct result of their having to obey rules of engagement created by politicians who have never set foot on -- or even seen -- a battlefield. 2015-09-30T00:01:00-04:00 2015-10-01T04:00:07Z Walter E. Williams

When the General Assembly Votes, the US Should Abstain

Wed, 2015-09-30 11:30
EACH YEAR, the United Nations General Assembly passes a resolution condemning the US economic embargo on Cuba. Each year, the United States, joined by a dwindling number of friends, votes against the resolution. Passage is a foregone conclusion.

Clearing the Air on Climate Change

Wed, 2015-09-30 05:45
Pope Franciss visit to America this past week is a reminder of the extent to which pure propaganda now circumscribes public discourse about climate change. The climate issue, in all its many dimensions, is not about air pollution as Pope Franciss recent speeches labeled the issue and as the media parroted his words. The climate change issue is about energy derived from fossil fuels. 2015-09-29T09:08:00-04:00 2015-09-30T13:45:09Z Kathleen Hartnett White

Tue, 2015-09-29 20:00
Nowhere has there been so much hand-wringing over a lack of "affordable housing," as among politicians and others in coastal California. And nobody has done more to make housing unaffordable than those same politicians and their supporters. 2015-09-29T00:01:00-04:00 2015-09-30T04:00:31Z Thomas Sowell

In the Abortion Debate, the Facts Matter

Tue, 2015-09-29 20:00
In the world of pro-life activism, some pro-lifers have a rather disparaging but also confusing view of abortion victim photos (AVPs) as a tool for pro-life activism. 2015-09-29T00:01:00-04:00 2015-09-30T04:00:31Z Fletcher Armstrong

The Missing Middle

Tue, 2015-09-29 20:00
It's a dangerous thing, a monopoly of power, whether that power is exercised by church or state. Or by a political party or any other single source. Let's not be afraid of dividing and diversifying power. Let's embrace it. It's the key to freedom. 2015-09-29T00:01:00-04:00 2015-09-30T04:00:31Z Paul Greenberg
