Have you seen the new Jurassic Park movie, "Jurassic World?"
Walter E. Williams:
A Minority View
The nation's demagogues and constitutionally ignorant are using the Charleston, South Carolina, AME church shooting to attack the Second Amendment's "right of the people to keep and bear Arms."
The Media, the Court and the Slippery Sex Slope
Back in 2003, the Associated Press gave serious aid and comfort to a vicious campaign against Sen. Rick Santorum over an interview he granted them dealing with the gay rights issue.
Fewer Traditional Values Means More Government
More unsettling than the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Obergefell v. Hodges directing states to recognize same-sex marriage is the reasoning that went into the decision.
You Can't Compromise With Culture Warriors
By no means are social justice warriors always wrong. But they are untrustworthy, because they aren't driven by a philosophy so much as an insatiable appetite that cannot take yes for an answer.
No, We Don't Need a Gas Tax Hike
It's summertime and that means millions of Americans will soon be cramming in the minivan for family vacation. But Congress may soon be raising the cost of those trips by increasing the federal gas tax.
The Hidden Message of Same-Sex Marriage
The four dissenters in Obergefell v. Hodges lucidly expressed the profound offense against constitutional law and representative democracy the ruling represents. In short, five lawyers, accountable to no one, chose to legislate on a profoundly consequential matter that the people were just beginning to address through democratic means. As Chief Justice Roberts wrote: "Who do we think we are?" If justices cannot resist the urge to legislate, let's drop the pretense that constitutional law is guided by neutral principles and at least give the people the option to vote justices in (and out).
First, the CFPB Came for the Payday Lenders
The other meta-bill that defines the legacy of President Barack Obama besides the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that created that unchained monster called the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Retro PC Run Amok

Thomas Jefferson Schools the Supremes
The occasion of our nations birthday is a good time to look back at where we started and where we are now; how the Founders envisioned our nation and how faithful we have been to that vision.
Democracy, Whiskey, Sexy: Liberty Demands Responsibility
"Democracy! Whiskey! And Sexy!" an exuberant Iraqi yelled as American soldiers entered his hometown, the southern city of Najaf.
Who Won, Who Lost? The Supremes Redefine Marriage
The hopes and fears of all the years met last week in Obergefell v. Hodges, the narrow but sweeping decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that proclaims homosexual couples have a right to marry anywhere in the country. Congratulations to them. At first glance, they've scored a significant victory, even if the score was just 5 to 4.
Socialist Sanders Gains in Polls and Declared a "Real Threat" to Hillary for the 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominaton
If you Google Bernie Sanders, some surprising poll numbers will appear, showing the rumpled, self-described socialist gaining fast on Hillary Clinton in the race for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
Susan Stamper Brown:
Communism Racism and the Sins of Our Parents
Newly released FBI documents confirm, just like President Obama, hard-core communism runs deep in the family of his most influential and trusted advisor, Valerie Jarrett. Ms. Jarrett is the one some describe as Mr. Obama's puppet-master...the wind beneath his wings...the real president.

Three years ago, Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, to save a key provision that he believed would otherwise be unconstitutional. Last week he did it again, this time to make the law work better.
Arthur Schaper :
Big Fat Greek Default
One of the founding cultures of Western Society, where the ancients prized learning independent of ethnic status, where rigorous inquiry flourished in spite of (and because of) the tyranny of the state (think Socrates), Greece has become the face and fallout of big government largesse, welfare state redistribution, and the failure of corruption and graft at the expense of a strong work ethic.
Love Didn’t Win—It Was Redefined
Love wins is the hashtag of choice for those in support of the newest Supreme Court decision that passed that legislative body by a 5-4 vote.
A Time to Speak
The rulings of the Supreme Court on Obamacare and marriage were a case study in moral relativism and what the world looks like when it ignores moral absolutes.
Faith in Action
This young man was clearly full of bitterness and anger at a nation that had, in his warped view, gone terribly wrong. His solution was to commit an act of brutality so jarring and so provocative that it would incite bitterness, anger, and violence in others. His ultimate goal? A race war.
Uber-Chaos Exposes the Folly of French Protectionism
Uber may not be a service that suits everyone -- as a woman riding solo, I'm not willing to chance it -- but it has nonetheless exposed impediments to a free market in the French taxi industry.
Forget A Federal Marriage Amendment and Go For Religious Freedom Acts In All 50 States
The dilemma Christians and conservatives face after the Supreme Court's made-up-from-whole-cloth-instead-of-the-Constitution ruling on gay marriage is one that Machiavelli described over 500 years ago.
Supreme Court Disasters
Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them.
Deep Thoughts On Flag Banning
Its not possible for me to write about First Amendment issues and refrain from weighing in on the current Confederate flag controversy that is brewing down in South Carolina.
