George Will | January 16, 2005

Moral hazard exists when government policy creates incentives that make bad behavior rational.

Kathleen Parker | January 15, 2005

As the world weighs in against media hubris, often well-deserved, it's bracing to note some of the good that gets done on the fringes in the name of principle rather than in the klieg-seeking interest of self-acclaim.

Jonah Goldberg | January 14, 2005

Amid the media din about the tsunami, Dan Rather's implosion, and the usual grim news from Iraq, an amazing story has been unfolding - but has received scant appreciation from the chattering classes. Democracy is on the march.

David Limbaugh | January 14, 2005

Senator Kennedy shared his vision for America this week in a speech at the National Press Club. The only common thread I could find in his shotgun critique was a stubborn fidelity to failed liberal policies of the past.

Mona Charen | January 14, 2005

Our diplomats are doing what they always do, attempting to portray a knife in the back as a friendly pat.

Oliver North | January 14, 2005

It's Colombia -- the other war on terror -- the beleaguered democracy less than four hours by air from the United States, that has for more than three years escaped the attention of the so-called mainstream media.

Debra J. Saunders | January 14, 2005

Mapes was right. The story is just like King Arthur's Holy Grail: the stuff of legend.

Ed Feulner | January 14, 2005

The voters spoke loud and clear last year, handing George Bush a mandate to replace big government with a true ownership society.

Rebecca Hagelin | January 14, 2005

You run into plenty of people who are disillusioned because the rough-and-tumble world of politics has dashed their hopes and dreams about changing the world. Before long, they figure: Why bother?

Chuck Colson | January 14, 2005

Sunday is Religious Freedom Day. How much religious freedom do we really enjoy in the land of the free? Not as much as you might think?especially in America?s prisons.

Charles Krauthammer | January 14, 2005

First comes the crime: Dan Rather's late hit on President Bush's Air National Guard service, featuring what were almost immediately revealed to be forged documents.

Ann Coulter | January 13, 2005

The Democratic Party continues to play the race card for political gain.

Suzanne Fields | January 13, 2005

George W. Bush and the Asian tsunami have put religion back on the front page.

Emmett Tyrrell | January 13, 2005

The new year dawns dank and melancholy at least for me. Shuffling off the nation's center stage are my favorite sanctimonious hinds, Dan Rather and Bill Moyers.

John McCaslin | January 13, 2005

A congressman whose Pledge Protection Act passed the House in the final days of the 108th Congress, yet never got a Senate vote, will refile the legislation in the wake of atheist Michael Newdow's renewed "assault" on the Pledge of Allegiance.

Alan Reynolds | January 13, 2005

The debate about whether and how to allow young people to invest part of their Social Security taxes in personal accounts is off to a fascinating start.

Larry Kudlow | January 13, 2005

Here?s one story you won?t find on tomorrow?s front pages: 'The U.S. Budget Deficit Is Shrinking Rapidly.'

Ross Mackenzie | January 13, 2005

Many have heard the complaints - particularly early on - about America the parsimonious, the stingy, the chintzy, the niggardly, the miserly, the cheap.

Rich Lowry | January 13, 2005

Last year, then-Sen. Zell Miller, a Georgia Democrat, wrote a scathing critique of the Democratic Party called 'A National Party No More: The Conscience of a Conservative Democrat.'

When it comes to journalistic ethics, I have never been a goody-goody, eat-your-spinach type.

David Limbaugh | January 12, 2005

The Democratic Party is at a crossroads. In trying to determine what has gone wrong and how to fix it, Democrats first have to decide whether they are going to be Doc Holliday Democrats.

Tony Blankley | January 12, 2005

My first question is from whom is the Review Panel and its hired lawyers independent? Who paid the law firm for its hundreds, probably thousands of hours of research? I assume CBS paid them.

Cal Thomas | January 12, 2005

That line from Jiminy Cricket in 'Pinocchio' seems to sum up the wishful thinking the Bush Administration wants to employ after last Sunday's Palestinian election.

Terry Jeffrey | January 12, 2005

Neither the Vikings nor the NFL could have been surprised by Moss' misbehavior.

Ben Shapiro | January 12, 2005

On Nov. 28, the court refused to hear a challenge to the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts' ruling sanctioning gay marriage.

Linda Chavez | January 12, 2005

Reporters deal in facts; and the collection and reporting of those facts are supposed to be apolitical, impartial and unbiased.

Joel Mowbray | January 12, 2005

In a bid to both bankrupt those who finance terror and bring some sense of justice to its victims, the legal team that is suing the Saudis for $1 trillion has launched yet another massive lawsuit against prime supporters of radical Islamic jihad.

Kathleen Parker | January 12, 2005

Both instances were the results of ethical breaches that further erode public trust and credibility in an institution that's increasingly viewed as biased.

Bruce Bartlett | January 12, 2005

Last week, President Bush finally named the members of a tax reform commission that he promised to appoint four months ago.

Chuck Colson | January 12, 2005

As the inauguration approaches, Washington?s talking heads seem strangely subdued. Maybe it is because there is some good news.

Mike Adams | January 11, 2005

Hi Robert! Someone forwarded me a copy of the email you recently sent to a number of animal rights nuts, I mean, activists.

Star Parker | January 11, 2005

Congressional Black Caucus members are already uniformly lining up in opposition to including individual retirement accounts as a key element of Social Security reform despite the fact that a specific proposal from the Bush administration has yet to arrive on Capitol Hill.

Dennis Prager | January 11, 2005

For those who subscribe to Judeo-Christian values, right and wrong, good and evil, are derived from God, not from reason alone, nor from the human heart, the state or through majority rule.

Debra J. Saunders | January 11, 2005

Here's the latest outrage that shows why California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is right to push for legislative redistricting to instill some healthy fear in arrogant Sacramento legislators.

Matt Towery | January 11, 2005

No, it's not coming from his own mouth, but the buzz has started.

Rich Lowry | January 11, 2005

You probably don't know Rafael Peralta's name. If we lived in a country that more fully celebrated the heroics of its men in uniform, you would.

John McCaslin | January 11, 2005

Who isn't having a ball - an inaugural ball, that is - as George W. Bush prepares to begin his second term as president?

Mon, Jan 10, 2005

Michael Barone | January 10, 2005

Of what use is the United Nations? Sometimes, it seems the answer is: none at all.

Cal Thomas | January 10, 2005

This is the Watergate equivalent of locking up the men who conducted the break-in at Democratic Party headquarters, but ignoring Attorney General John Mitchell, Vice President Spiro Agnew and President Richard Nixon, which CBS News and Dan Rather famously did not do.

Suzanne Fields | January 10, 2005

The question elicits pride and prejudice, fear and shame, understanding and ignorance, flowing from the relationship we all have (or have not) with that first man in our lives.

Diana West | January 10, 2005

From worlds away -- maybe another planet -- 'explanations' for the tsunami catastrophe begin.

Phyllis Schlafly | January 10, 2005

Frank Gaffney | January 10, 2005

Even before the Congress formally declared George W. Bush the winner of last November?s presidential election, reports began circulating that he would propose a defense budget for next year that one might have expected instead from the loser, Senator John Kerry.

Jack Kemp | January 10, 2005

Is the United States heading down such a path?

Armstrong Williams | January 10, 2005

Caroline Glick | January 09, 2005

Dichter presented Israel with real cause for concern over Sharon's plan, but his analysis was far from exhaustive.

Paul Jacob | January 09, 2005

Journalists do not need an ideological bias to misreport the news. Their simple preference for a good story by itself can lead to error. Just look at environmental reporting.

George Will | January 09, 2005

President Bush's even bolder cap-over-the-wall decision is to define his second term by a vow to 'transform' Social Security.

Larry Kudlow | January 09, 2005

Friday?s job report shows that White House economist Greg Mankiw was very nearly right when he projected almost a year ago that jobs could rise by 2.6 million in 2004.
