David Limbaugh | June 22, 2002

Would you agree or disagree with the proposition that "The United States would be better off if the '60s had never happened?"

Robert Novak | June 22, 2002

When President Bush slipped an admonition for businessmen to be honest into his speech at Wednesday night's huge Republican fund-raiser at the Washington Convention Center, he disregarded political advice from aides.

Thomas Sowell | June 21, 2002

Maybe it was not the most important case before the Supreme Court of the United States.

Michelle Malkin | June 21, 2002

Terry Barton, a U.S. Forest Service worker, was charged this week with intentionally setting the largest wildfire in Colorado history. It is a black mark on the beleaguered federal agency.

Brent Bozell | June 21, 2002

And now, a few words in memory of 34 1/2-year-old Rolling Stone magazine.

Jonah Goldberg | June 21, 2002

As a policy geek and pundit, I'm used to yelling at C-Span or CNN the way some people yell at the Super Bowl. I've been known to exclaim things like, "That's not how Social Security works, ya moron!" on more than a few occasions. But watching my wife debate a coterie of feminists and professional liberals has been especially exasperating.

Mona Charen | June 21, 2002

Most people should spare themselves the torment of viewing the video of Daniel Pearl's murder. The ghoulish tape is now available on the Internet -- a "commercial," as The New Republic rightly notes.

Oliver North | June 21, 2002

The first war of the 21st century has been a resounding success for the United States. Thus far, operations have claimed fewer than 250 U.S. combat casualties, and, for the most part, U.S. Special Forces in Afghanistan are being positively portrayed by the media.

Debra J. Saunders | June 21, 2002

Once there was a little offshore oil platform named Davey the Derrick.

Jacob Sullum | June 21, 2002

At first I liked Jesse Ventura mainly because I hated Hubert H. Humphrey III.

Larry Kudlow | June 21, 2002

Does anyone think it somewhat odd and curious that the New York tabloids eulogized the death of organized crime boss John Gotti for page after page, but those very same tabs saw fit to trash successful businesswoman Martha Stewart over a relatively modest stock sale?

Ann Coulter | June 20, 2002

Interrupting the endless 30-year Watergate retrospective and getting back to the war for a moment, I've noticed that liberals are having trouble making any good arguments against Bush, so I thought I'd help them out this week.

Thomas Sowell | June 20, 2002

The appalling story of the pedophile priests deserves all the negative press it has been getting. But is the press critical of them because they are pedophiles or because they are priests?

Larry Elder | June 20, 2002

Winston Churchill, many say, once said, "A man younger than 30 who's not a liberal has no heart and a man older than 30 who's not a conservative has no brain."

Cal Thomas | June 20, 2002

The mail brings a letter from a self-identified African-American prison inmate (several of the same type have arrived since Sept. 11). He predicts Islam will take over the world and America's days are numbered.

Suzanne Fields | June 20, 2002

It's been a rough few years for historians. The higher the rung, the greater the fall. Plagiarism infected the works of superstar authors Doris Kearns Goodwin and Stephen Ambrose.

Ben Shapiro | June 20, 2002

When the United States builds a missile-defense shield, it should leave a small hole right above Harvard University -- and Yale, Stanford, Columbia and Brown.

Emmett Tyrrell | June 20, 2002

If The New York Times obituary page the other day is any indication, it is now a good time for readers with an appetite for history to start pursuing the obit pages regularly.

John McCaslin | June 20, 2002

Sept. 11 did nothing to break the 2000 stalemate in U.S. politics, with red (George W. Bush) states like Texas getting redder and blue (Al Gore) states like California getting bluer.

Bruce Bartlett | June 20, 2002

A favorite liberal trick is to always call any proposed reduction in the rate of growth of spending a "cut."

Ross Mackenzie | June 20, 2002

At high noon in Dallas last week the nation's Roman Catholic leaders blinked.

Larry Kudlow | June 20, 2002

Some of the greatest, growth-minded economists in history had names beginning with the letter S: Smith, Schumpeter and Say.

Robert Novak | June 20, 2002

Amid the uncertainties of election politics, one 2002 outcome had seemed assured. Republican George Pataki surely would be elected to a third term.

Charles Krauthammer | June 20, 2002

For an American foreign policy whose major objective is stability and nonviolence (if for no other reason than to give us freedom of action elsewhere in the region to fight terrorism), one could not devise a worse policy.

George Will | June 20, 2002

An iron law of avant-garde art is that theorizing expands to fill a void of talent. That law explains the execrable exhibit ``Mirroring Evil: Nazi Imagery/Recent Art,'' now in its final days at the Jewish Museum at the corner of 92nd Street and Fifth Avenue.

Michelle Malkin | June 19, 2002

School's out. What did your children learn this year? Across the country, one poisonous lesson was pumped into the systems of self-esteem-inflated students: There is no such thing as failure.

Walter E. Williams | June 19, 2002

If someone does something wonderful, but didn't intend to, does it count? Should we see ourselves as blessed?

Jonah Goldberg | June 19, 2002

Last week, I wrote a column about Jose Padilla, AKA the "dirty bomber." In order to avoid repeating myself, let me give short-shrift to my argument and sum up as briefly as possible.

David Limbaugh | June 19, 2002

President Bush's decision to take pre-emptive action against terrorist groups and states is wholly consistent with the Bush Doctrine. He should apply that same consistency in his decision on whether to support the creation of a Palestinian state.

Dennis Prager | June 19, 2002

If I were a movie star or a media liberal and therefore been invited to deliver a college commencement address, this is what I would have said:

Pat Buchanan | June 19, 2002

In the old James Bond films, Sean Connery played Agent 007. The double-0 meant Bond was one of but a handful of British agents who were licensed to kill. So it would appear is George W. Bush.

Debra J. Saunders | June 19, 2002

The headline for a statement by activists opposed to the U.S. war on terror is, "Not in Our Name," but it more accurately should read, "We're better than you are."

Bill Murchison | June 19, 2002

Rehashing Watergate -- our apparent preoccupation during this, the 30th anniversary week of the fabled break-in -- is akin to refighting the Battle of Gettysburg.

John McCaslin | June 19, 2002

If a potted tree falls over in the middle of a televised political debate, will anybody hear it? Chances are no, unless you're among the debaters.

Armstrong Williams | June 19, 2002

Backed by a Republican controlled House of Representatives and the president, right-to-life advocates are gaining ground.

William F. Buckley | June 19, 2002

The cartoon across the op-ed page of The New York Times is by James Stevenson of The New Yorker.

Kathleen Parker | June 19, 2002

Politicians, tyrants and communists long have admired euphemism and double talk for their faculty in cloaking truth, diffusing meaning and just plain baffling the people they hope to convince, rule or confuse.

Brent Bozell | June 18, 2002

Given the reaction from some in the media over the recent arrests of suspected terrorists, a question arises. This question should be unthinkable it is so preposterous, but it is very real:

Cal Thomas | June 18, 2002

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Linda Chavez | June 18, 2002

Marriage has suddenly become a hot political topic with George W. Bush in the White House.

Phyllis Schlafly | June 18, 2002

America's massive news gathering apparatus and round-the-clock coverage should have us surfeited with all the news that's important.

Maggie Gallagher | June 18, 2002

You cannot please everyone. A few days after the U.S. Bishops Conference, a few voices in the victims movement are still protesting.

Bruce Bartlett | June 18, 2002

There is nothing the press likes better than a man-bites-dog story, which by definition is "news." The estate tax provides just such a story

Jack Kemp | June 18, 2002

Palestinians are entitled to self-determination. Everyone, from President George W. Bush to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, acknowledges this fact.

Marvin Olasky | June 18, 2002

It's time for the national GOP to put its money where its mouth is.

Mon, Jun 17, 2002

Pat Buchanan | June 17, 2002

With the 30th anniversary of the Watergate break-in hard upon us, the calls are coming in. Would this writer like to join a panel to "discuss" the Watergate break-in?

Suzanne Fields | June 17, 2002

Despite our pledge of allegiance as one nation indivisible, America is continually painted as a nation divided.

Debra J. Saunders | June 17, 2002

High-minded people who want to see Osama bin Laden tried by an international court -- if Osama's alive, and if he is captured -- ought to take a look at the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic taking place at The Hague.

George Will | June 17, 2002

Long ago--long before he served two terms as California's governor and made three runs for the Democratic presidential nomination...

William F. Buckley | June 17, 2002

The scare headlines popped up here and there intensifying last week. We were told that Amtrak would cease services unless ... Exactly.

Robert Novak | June 17, 2002

"We need many more Jews to come to Israel, a million more Jews," Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee behind closed doors last week.
