For the life of me, I can’t seem to figure out why and how unions get into the business of educating our children.

For most Americans, Independence Day is a lot like the beginning of a baseball game. A famous artist sings the National Anthem and everyone in the stadium stands and places their hand upon their heart. Some people sing along or at least mouth the words, but most put on a fake look of sincerity thinking, “Ican’t wait till the song ends so the game can begin.”

It is a pernicious temptation to pity yourself.

?With urban crime nationwide undergoing a decade-long decline, Chicago sticks out like a sore thumb with its record homicides and rising crime rates over the past few years. The chaos in Chicago is particularly troubling given that Chicago is the home base of President Obama, and elected a mayor that was essentially hand-picked by the Obama administration.

?President Obama is doubling down in his defense of his blunder in defying the rule of law, exercising poor judgment, and mischaracterizing (I'm trying to be charitable) the service of Sgt. Bergdahl in his ill-conceived 'deal' to free the lone American serviceman held captive in Afghanistan.

?Polls consistently show that many Americans don’t know, let alone truly care about, what goes on outside the borders of this country. Walk down the aisle of your local grocery store and the trove of magazines available for purchase will lead you to the logical conclusion that most Americans are far more fixated on what goes in within the thirty mile zone of Hollywood than on life and death issues confronting people across the globe.

Donald Sterling’s publicly disclosed comments depict an anachronistic view of race relations in this country. His interview tour is beyond incomprehensible, sad, ignorant, and completely shows that he has lost touch with reality.

On Sunday night, 11 Nigerian girls were kidnapped in two remote villages in Northeastern Nigeria. These missing girls add to the list of up to 276 girls who are currently missing in that part of the country.

Rep. Bennie Thompson has covered himself, and the entire sweep of his brand of big government race-baiting liberalism, with another shroud of shame and ignominy.

With good reason the sports world is aflame over the recent remarks of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Comedy has many approaches and subjects: leaders, governments, things we don't understand. In the vein of the latter, I suppose it is understandable to pick on religions.

All too often, rich individuals in this country are demonized for simply being rich.

Last week, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decided to let college football players at Northwestern University unionize. Usually I am not in favor of unions, but clearly something must be done to change the way college athletes get compensated for their services.

One of the major factors in determining an “intact married home” is the amount of involvement parents have in their child’s life. The same holds true for single-parent households. Children that have parents heavily involved in their life are much more likely to be educationally successful, economically successful, and morally upright than children who do not.

For those young Americans who are unemployed, an increase in the minimum wage is a disaster. The first step on the proverbial economic ladder would be chopped off, trapping those young, low skilled Americans in poverty. Instead of hiring low skilled individuals, businesses would speed up investment in technology as seen by an increase in self-checkout machines at your local grocery store.

Our great nation is founded upon the freedom to exercise religion and the freedom to speak your mind. The very first amendment of our constitution guarantees these freedoms as God-given rights. You the individual can choose not to give into the cultural norm that looks down upon religious speak.

The idea that parents have no control over where their children go to school is unthinkable. The public school education system currently in America is exactly that. Children must go to a school based not on choice, but on five numbers-their zip code.

We need, as a society, to get back to celebrating mothers who sacrifice their careers to care for our most vulnerable, our children. And yes, we can have our cake and eat it, too. We have emerged from the former mindset that women are inferior to men, but we also must emerge from and reject the mindset that full-time mothers are inferior to working women or single mothers.

While Americans celebrated the new year on January 1, the date was a major milestone in the history of Nigeria. It marked 100 years to the day since the separate protectorates of Southern and Northern Nigeria were united.

One of our greatest achievements in the founding of our beloved America was the execution of our framers constructing two very essential aspects of the U.S. Constitution, that being both the concepts of federalism and the division of powers.
