Earlier this year, my column asked, "Will the West Defend Itself?" I pointed out that America's leftists and progressives believe that the U.S. should become more like Europe (http://tinyurl.com/nfk2c4d).

Land of the Free, Home of the Generous
It is a cliche by now to note that we are a nation of immigrants, yet we have always been of two minds -- at least -- about that proud title when it comes to welcoming immigrants, including the latest crop of Syrian refugees seeking refuge here.

A Resurgence of Intolerance
Storm trooper tactics by bands of college students making ideological demands across the country, and immediate preemptive surrender by college administrators -- such as at the University of Missouri recently -- bring back memories of the 1960s, for those of us old enough to remember what it was like being there, and seeing first-hand how painful events unfolded.
