Jonah Goldberg | November 28, 2003

Mona Charen | November 28, 2003

This is a season for counting one's blessings. Here is my partial list.

Oliver North | November 28, 2003

There's a time and a place for political criticism and spirited debate, and Natalie Maines, the lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, seems not to understand either where nor when to voice such thoughts.

Jacob Sullum | November 28, 2003

This is what the Bush administration has reduced me to: The other day, I was rooting for a Ted Kennedy filibuster.

Are the Coors Light "twins" endangering the health of our kids?

William F. Buckley | November 27, 2003

The swirl of opinion that came in after the ruling of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court tells its own story, which is that the judicial arm has achieved a moral standing not even dreamed of by Cotton Mather, or mere popes and rabbinical councils.

Larry Kudlow | November 27, 2003

Far-away terrorism and some low-intensity trade disputes have temporarily stalled the stock market. But is the fledgling Bush boom coming unglued?

Marvin Olasky | November 27, 2003

On Thanksgiving two years ago, after an autumn of terrorism and rumors of terrorism, most Americans understood that every day not dated Sept. 11 was a good day. Frustration at work?

Alan Reynolds | November 27, 2003

Everyone approaching middle age had better start building a Health Saving Account as quickly as possible, because Congress just promised seniors another few trillion in future benefits without having the slightest idea how to make good on those promises.

Ross Mackenzie | November 27, 2003

Pausing at some of the trees in the forest...

George Will | November 27, 2003

Many people are incensed that other countries pay less for American medications than Americans pay because that is 'unfair.'

Michelle Malkin | November 26, 2003

Jonah Goldberg | November 26, 2003

We all know that the media have a tendency to focus on bad news. Between every occasional plane crash, tens of millions of flights arrive safely at their destinations, but nobody wants to hear about that.

Tony Blankley | November 26, 2003

The passage of the Republican Party's Medicare/Prescription drug bill -- and its support by the AARP -- is by far the most convincing evidence to date that the political center of gravity in Washington is shifting definitively to the GOP for the first time since the pre-FDR era.

Before we sit down to our annual feast of plump turkey and candied yams, tart cranberries and buttery pumpkin pie, we should think back on our first Thanksgiving holiday.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 26, 2003

Enough time has passed, enough dust has cleared, enough history has unfolded for Americans to appreciate what Ronald Reagan truly meant to this country. That's why even Barbra Streisand and her cronies no longer can get away with trashing him.

Rich Tucker | November 26, 2003

We’re spending too much on homeland security. How’s that possible? After all, the nation is at war

Cal Thomas | November 25, 2003

If a male child was fondled or sodomized by Michael Jackson, why shouldn't he and the boy be allowed the orientation of their choice? If you disagree, who are you to impose your morality on them?

Dennis Prager | November 25, 2003

Matt Towery | November 25, 2003

Ultimately, the party will reinvent itself again, perhaps by trawling for young voters who will be grousing about taxes, entitlements and federal debt. This ebb and flow of policies and politics is inevitable.

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for my family, the small miracles of life and Bill Parcells.

John Leo | November 25, 2003

Some admire the gay-marriage ruling in Massachusetts. Some don’t. But surely the heart of the story is the stupefying arrogance of the state’s Supreme Judicial Court.

John McCaslin | November 25, 2003

The Democratic National Committee, in dire need of campaign cash, has enlisted CNN "Crossfire" co-host James Carville to call President Bush a liar.

Bruce Bartlett | November 25, 2003

On Jan. 23, 1996, Bill Clinton told the nation, "The era of big government is over." If so, it sure didn't last very long.

No doubt President Bush's Whitehall speech will be remembered for its "three pillars" -- Bush's metaphorical framework for the peace and security of free nations.

Frank Gaffney | November 24, 2003

It has become an article of faith in certain circles that President Bush fought an unnecessary and ill-advised war with Iraq.

Jack Kemp | November 24, 2003

Paul Jacob | November 23, 2003

I don't want socialist-lite in my capitalist presidents, and I don't want a "compassionate conservative" (if that means robbing people with a smile instead of a frown).

I was asked by a television network to comment on the career of President Kennedy. I agreed to do so and do not know how many other views were solicited, or when the program was aired.

George Will | November 23, 2003

It speaks well of Dick Gephardt that he speaks so uncomfortably when compelled to speak -- as he understandably would prefer not to do -- about campaign finance law.
