After my 85th birthday last week, I looked back over my life and was surprised to discover in how many different ways I had been lucky, in addition to some other ways in which I was unlucky.
Is Your Church Abetting Sanctuary Nation?

Nearly 10,000 people turned out to hear Bernie Sanders in Wisconsin. Why? Apparently, many Democrats want socialism.
The Impending Consequences of Liberal Progressive Socialist Economics
Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once stated, The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. The fallacy of progressive socialists is that they believe such to not be true.
Walter E. Williams:
Fiddling Away the Future
Even if white people were to become angels tomorrow, it would do nothing for the problems plaguing a large segment of the black community.
Hillary and Her Roped Media Herd
Hillary Clinton's campaign again signaled its contempt for the press during a July 4 parade in New Hampshire. Aides brought out ropes to cordon off the media. It was the perfect metaphor for a "news" media so cowered by their candidate that they would allow such a humiliating action.
Four Reasons the Left Should Love Capitalism But Doesn’t
Capitalism has a new competitor and its name is "shame." The left is determined to make capitalism morally reprehensible.
Is Trump America’s “Strongman”?
Is the time ripe for Americas version of the Third World strongman? Will we see the arrival of a macho leader, riding in on a white horse with sword drawn, to rally a citizenry frozen in fear and uncertainty?
The Most Idiotic Comment in Presidential History
On Monday, President Obama spoke about his new strategy to take on the terrorist entity Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In doing so, he explained that the battle against that terrorist group -- a group he had once termed "JV" -- would amount to a "generational struggle." Why would defeating a ragtag army of primitives take generations? Because, Obama explained, "This is not simply a military effort. Ideologies are not defeated by guns. They're defeated with better ideas." To cap off this airsickness bag of gobbledygook, Obama then concluded, "We will never be at war with Islam."

Obama’s Whoppers Will Bite Him in the End and the Democrats, Too, In 2016
This is a time to be very skeptical of political analysts who are telling voters that the Democrats "have regained an advantage" over the GOP as we head toward the 2016 presidential election.
Profile of Homegrown Islamic State Terror Suspects Doesn't Fit Scare Campaigns
Over the long Independence Day weekend in America, did you spend more time in your little bedroom community pondering the potential of a terrorist attack than wondering how long you should let your hot dogs sizzle on the grill? If so, then America has far more serious problems than terrorism.
Susan Stamper Brown:
Love Didn't Win
Oh, the injustice of five justices wearing black robes, so overwhelmingly endowed with special superpowers, they can read what's not written and create sketchy laws out of thin air. They declared something as a fundamental right, though it can't be backed by verbiage in the Constitution, according to Chief Justice John Roberts. But now, "it's the law."
Marse Robert and the Lynch Mob
From across my small office I winked at Marse Robert. He winked back -- so his 7-by-6-inch portrait seemed to suggest -- white-bearded, gray-uniformed, arms folded serenely and confidently.
Christie vs. Paul on Surveillance and Security: New Jersey's Governor Dismisses Concerns About Warrantless Snooping
Chris Christie says Rand Paul, one of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, is "politicizing America's national security" by objecting to the government's indiscriminate collection of our telephone records. The New Jersey governor's puzzling charge against the Kentucky senator illustrates the bullying tactics of the national security state's defenders, who reflexively argue that civil libertarians endanger American lives by questioning mass surveillance.
Yahoo News = Virtual News
On July 3, Yahoo News let it all hang out. The caption under the unflattering photo of Donald Trump read, A level of idiocy I havent seen in a long time--quoting someone named Alfonso Aguilar, a person unknown to 99.9% of the American public, but, apparently someone Yahoo News holds in high esteem.
Thank Goodness The Stupid, Socialist Greeks Said "No" To A Bailout!
The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. Margaret Thatcher
A Legacy of Cliches
Discussions of racial problems almost invariably bring out the cliche of "a legacy of slavery."
