Thomas Sowell | November 15, 2003

Thomas Sowell | November 14, 2003

Any attempt at a rational discussion of the economic realities of government-controlled medical care is almost certain to run up against the trump card of the political left: The Poor.

Brent Bozell | November 14, 2003

It is a pleasure to be here at North Carolina State University for the annual conference of the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy.

Jonah Goldberg | November 14, 2003

"Is War Our Biological Destiny?" That is the question posed in a recent New York Times article by Natalie Angier.

Mona Charen | November 14, 2003

Oliver North | November 14, 2003

The memo suggests that Democrats "pull the trigger" on their plan next year -- high political season. But the Bush haters couldn't wait -- they are already in full attack mode.

Rich Tucker | November 14, 2003

Presidential hopeful Howard Dean is off the dole. And that’s a good thing.

Bruce Bartlett | November 14, 2003

One of the fundamental justifications for the estate tax is that bequests often have negative effects on recipients.

Joel Mowbray | November 14, 2003

Charles Krauthammer | November 14, 2003

The story, drawn from the Patrick O'Brian novels, is framed by battle scenes between a British and a French warship. The TV trailer promises 'Gladiator' at sea.'

Suzanne Fields | November 13, 2003

Britain's Conservative Party, adrift in a wilderness dark and drear, has elected a Jew as its leader. It figures. Only a Moses could lead them out of the wilderness, down the valley of doubt and through the pond of despair into the promised land.

Terry Jeffrey | November 13, 2003

"We'll get him back." That's what President Bush told the family of slain Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy David March when they told him in May that the deputy's suspected killer had fled to Mexico.

How do people who deliberately set out to break American immigration law get to sue U.S. employers for breaking labor laws?

Emmett Tyrrell | November 13, 2003

The prophets of the 1960s told us America's future was socialistic, agnostic and sympathetic to eclectic Eastern mysticism. Not even many undergraduates live that way now.

Robert Novak | November 13, 2003

The endorsement of Howard Dean for president this week by two major labor unions instantly changed the atmosphere in Democratic ranks.

Ross Mackenzie | November 13, 2003

Marvin Olasky | November 13, 2003

The classic poem speaks of children nestled in beds on Christmas Eve, but this year sugar plums began dancing in GOP heads following last week's Kentucky and Mississippi gubernatorial victories.

National Public Radio is not only a broadcast boutique operated by and for liberals, it's now flooded with more cash than it could possibly ever need, thanks to a liberal philanthropist.

Jonah Goldberg | November 12, 2003

Since so many people seem to think Howard Dean would make a great president, I wonder if they might be willing to vote for the county commissioner of Dekalb, Ga., instead?

Tony Blankley | November 12, 2003

This week it was announced that of the 4.7 million American veterans of World War I, only 44 are still alive.

Ben Shapiro | November 12, 2003

Linda Chavez | November 12, 2003

As political scandals go, this one should have been Big News. It had all the makings: a leaked document, arrogant staff and a nefarious plot to exploit national security for partisan advantage.

Maggie Gallagher | November 12, 2003

Can we get honest about sex? I know it seems all we do is talk openly and honestly about sex.

John McCaslin | November 12, 2003

Retired U.S. Army Gen. Tommy Franks, who led the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, expresses doubt that Osama bin Laden will ever be found. However, he is confident Saddam Hussein will be captured or killed.

William F. Buckley | November 12, 2003

In the course of 24 hours, the people egging on 'Master and Commander' showed me the film at a private screening, took me to dinner at the New York Yacht Club, gave me a book to read that tells about the making of the movie, and mailed me a DVD, which includes a trailer of the movie itself and a sparkling 30-minute narrative featuring the two boats central to the film.

Kathleen Parker | November 12, 2003

Watching the news over the weekend, I was ecstatic to see videos of our special-ops men rounding up Saddam and the last of his hellhounds. Finally.

David Limbaugh | November 11, 2003

The War on Terror was always going to be the driving issue for Democrats in the 2004 presidential election, but now that the economy is doing well, they will stay light years from the mantra, "It's the economy, stupid."

Cal Thomas | November 11, 2003

Quoting Ronald Reagan's 1982 address at Westminster Palace in which Reagan spoke of a turning point in history, Bush noted Reagan had argued that Soviet communism had failed "precisely because it did not respect its own people - their creativity, their genius and their rights."

Dennis Prager | November 11, 2003

In August, state Attorney General Bill Lockyer told the Sacramento Bee that if the Gray Davis political machine waged a nasty campaign in the recall election -- as it did in its successful bid to bury Los Angeles Mayor Dick Riordan in the GOP primary in 2002 -- many Democrats would tell His Grayness, "We're tired of that puke politics."

Matt Towery | November 11, 2003

This month marks the 40th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963. Surveys consistently show that event profoundly affected the outlook of an entire generation of Americans, much as 9/11 has the current one.

Bill Murchison | November 11, 2003

If, as matters stand already, the House and the Senate can't come together on Medicare drug policy, wait until the federal government pronounces obesity a disease.

The Saudi royal family can only be thinking, "What good is protection money if it doesn't protect you?"

Robert Novak | November 10, 2003

What happens next will be the nation's most compelling political story. The state's Republicans, at death's door prior to the recall election, now envision Schwarzenegger as their savior.

Armstrong Williams | November 10, 2003

No longer do we learn through subject and verb, but rather through a verbal hybrid of images and slogans designed to spare us the rigors of closely examining issues for ourselves.

Jack Kemp | November 10, 2003

When I read the headline in The Washington Post that said, "Bremer imposes flat tax on Iraq," I thought how dare the administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority "impose" a fair, simple, low tax rate on those poor Iraqi entrepreneurs and small shop owners.

Paul Jacob | November 09, 2003

In 1949, Orwell published a novel set in the far-flung future of three and a half decades later. It tells of a semi-recognizable Britain, now scooped up in the mega-state of Oceania, whose citizens are controlled via telescreens in every room.

William F. Buckley | November 09, 2003

The bill proscribing partial-birth abortions threw off lights, intended and not intended. There was the decision by the White House to give the signing of the new law maximum attention. Accordingly, leading lights in the pro-life legions were there to witness the act.

Larry Kudlow | November 09, 2003

Is there an English-speaking interest-rate hike sweeping the world? More important, will English-speaking economic growth principles rule the waves? Most likely, both are correct.
