Thomas Sowell: Minimum Wage Madness: Part II

Posted 9/21/2013 in National Columns

Rheta Johnson: Here she comes...

Posted 9/21/2013 in National Columns

Colorado floods of so-called biblical proportions, fire on the Boardwalk, a Miss America contestant with visible tattoos? It really might be the End Times.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Village idiots take aim at Miss America

Posted 9/21/2013 in National Columns

A couple months ago, I got an email from Supreet. Supreet is in the 11th grade. He shops at Wal-Mart and plays basketball. His father came to this country from India and both are Sikhs, followers of a centuries-old faith founded in the Punjab region. Supreet wanted to tell me what it is like being a Sikh in America.

Bill Crawford: Rubio or Cruz the Next Obama?

Posted 9/14/2013 in National Columns

And the worm turns... Look back at the presidential campaign of 2008. Hilary Clinton and Joe Biden strongly criticized young, first term U.S. Senator Barack Obama for his lack of experience. He won't be ready on "day one," said Clinton. Republican nominee John McCain agreed and used Clinton's and Biden's remarks in television ads. All to no avail, as we know. The inexperienced senator won the Democratic nomination and the presidency.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Remembering a debt we all owe

Posted 9/14/2013 in National Columns

This is for four women who are not here. It is for grandchildren who never existed and retirement celebrations that were never held. It is for Sunday dinners that were never prepared in homes that were never purchased. It is for children who were never born and fathers who never got to walk daughters down the aisle.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Putin has a good time at Obama's expense

Posted 9/14/2013 in National Columns

As I read Vlad's op-ed in the New York Times, a Judy Collins tune kept replaying in my head: "Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?" The song -- actually written by Stephen Sondheim, although it is Collins's signature hit -- is "Send in the Clowns," and it seems an apt soundtrack for current events.

Kathleen Parker: Just a little bit of war against Syria

Posted 9/7/2013 in National Columns

Waging a little bit of war is like being a little bit pregnant. History and human experience tell us that neither is possible, yet we seem bent on believing it. Or, should I say, deceiving ourselves.

 

 

Charles Krauthammer: Unless he's serious, vote no

Posted 9/7/2013 in National Columns

Sen. Bob Corker: "What is it you're seeking?" Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: "I can't answer that, what we're seeking." -- Senate hearing on the use of force in Syria, Sept. 3 We have a problem. The president proposes attacking Syria, and his top military officer cannot tell you the objective. Does the commander in chief know his own objective? Why, yes. "A shot across the bow," explained Barack Obama.

 

 

Froma Harrop: China's rich, yearning to breath free

Posted 9/7/2013 in National Columns

Thousands of Chinese are fleeing to the United States. We are not talking about impoverished peasants hiding in cargo containers. We're talking about millionaires flying first class and buying condos in the choicest ZIP codes. A big reason for this relocation, real estate agents say, is a desire for America's clean air, as opposed to China's suffocating smog.

Rheta Johnson: Gone with the Schwinn

Posted 8/31/2013 in National Columns

The Wall Street Journal had one of its trademark front-page features the other day about how slow-bicycling sans spandex and road helmets is making a fast comeback. One man's "Slow Bicycle Movement" Facebook group has 7,300 members, the article said.
