David Limbaugh | June 15, 2002

As a precocious political theorist I once diplomatically accused my seventh-grade math teacher of employing Marxist tactics for announcing he was going to give every student a C on the next exam, irrespective of their test performance.

Kathleen Parker | June 15, 2002

We have a word problem in America that, spelled out, may predict our downfall. We simply can't bring ourselves to define what "is" is. Herewith, a few recent examples:

Joel Mowbray | June 15, 2002

There may be much attention paid, and justly deserved, this Father's Day to the extraordinary September 11 heroes of the New York police and fire departments, to the heroes of Flight 93, and to the scores of brave young soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for the War on Terror.

Jonah Goldberg | June 14, 2002

Here we go again. The decision to hold Jose Padilla, AKA Abdullah al Muhajir, the so-called "dirty bomber," as an "enemy combatant" has reignited the bonfire of hysteria over military tribunals and civil rights.

Mona Charen | June 14, 2002

Questioned about his alliance with Soviet Russia against Nazi Germany, Churchill is reported to have said, "If Hitler invaded Hell, I'd find something nice to say about the Devil."

Debra J. Saunders | June 14, 2002

For a woman who never wanted to enter politics, Laura Bush is one smooth customer. She's developed a persona of America's den mother. Soothing, caring, maternal. A real-life Mrs. Cleaver.

Bruce Bartlett | June 14, 2002

The headlines continue to suggest the scope of the disaster.

Charles Krauthammer | June 14, 2002

Terrorism changes people's lives. But the real test of terrorism's success is whether it changes their politics. In that sense, Palestinian terrorism has been counterproductive.

Ann Coulter | June 13, 2002

In their enthusiasm to bash the Bush administration for its handling of the war -- which Democrats consider an annoying distraction from the real business of government, which is redistributing income -- the left has embraced FBI agent Coleen Rowley as a modern Joan of Arc.

Larry Elder | June 13, 2002

Cal Thomas | June 13, 2002

The score is 6-0, which represents the number of times Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has visited President Bush vs. the administration shutout of Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat.

Suzanne Fields | June 13, 2002

Ben Shapiro | June 13, 2002

As an avid moviegoer, I love nothing better than a good political thriller. Still, I am boycotting the newest Tom Clancy movie "The Sum of All Fears."

Maggie Gallagher | June 13, 2002

As the American bishops meet this week in Dallas, the prayers of every faithful Catholic and most Americans of good will go out to them. Three large issues are raised by what we have learned.

Armstrong Williams | June 13, 2002

As Congress investigates the FBI and CIA's handling of intelligence information prior to the Sept. 11 attacks, it is important to remember that simply learning not to make the same mistakes will not win this war. Our enemies have proven themselves to be fluid thinkers.

Larry Kudlow | June 13, 2002

Remember the old quiz show "To Tell the Truth"?

William F. Buckley | June 13, 2002

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that unprecedented numbers of American adults are living with their parents.

Pat Buchanan | June 12, 2002

"J. Edgar Hoover is Back: FBI Wages Secret War Against U.S. Citizens." So runs the alarmist headline over Monday's column in The Washington Times by civil libertarian Nat Hentoff.

Debra J. Saunders | June 12, 2002

You've got to love Californians. When Bill Clinton was president, folks happily agreed that Clinton should pass goodies onto the Golden State because they helped him win the White House. Friends help friends.

Bill Murchison | June 12, 2002

Ex malo bonum, goes the old Latin tag -- out of evil good may come. The Roman Catholic Church's Latin may have gone rusty over the past four decades, but the lowliest layman can now see the point.

Brent Bozell | June 11, 2002

At almost this time in his presidency -- in June of his second year -- President George H.W. Bush announced he would put tax increases on the table in budget negotiations with House and Senate Democrats.

David Limbaugh | June 11, 2002

It's time for the Senate to join the House in repealing, once and for all, the socialistic death tax monster, whose only remaining purpose is to serve as ammunition for class warfare demagogues.

Phyllis Schlafly | June 11, 2002

Marvin Olasky | June 11, 2002

As Congress debates welfare reform, liberal journalists are muddying the discussion by describing welfare, in the words of one headline, as "a gift to the nation's children."

Mon, Jun 10, 2002

Pat Buchanan | June 10, 2002

President Bush is engaged in feverish diplomacy to stop an India-Pakistan war. He is mulling over an "American Plan" to end the Israeli-Palestinian war. And he has just sent his secretary of defense to NATO to line up allies to launch an American-Iraqi war.

Suzanne Fields | June 10, 2002

Most of our teachers and students don't know much about history. We knew that. Now we learn that they don't know much about literature, either.
