Kevin McCullough | September 03, 2006

Wal-Mart never excluded anyone from being employed there based on their sexual preference. To them, and more importantly to the consumer - it didn't matter.

Larry Kudlow | September 02, 2006

The August jobs report should put to rest any fears that the economy is burning out.

Doug Giles | September 02, 2006

Yeah, Jesus is seen in certain sectors of emasculated evangelicalism and in some spiritually castrated Catholic circles as an altruistic bearded lady who traipsed around Israel spitting out courteous clichés and nifty narratives like an over-medicated Garrison Keillor.

Robert Novak | September 02, 2006

Rich Tucker | September 01, 2006

George Soros has a plan. Or, at least, a dream.

Burt Prelutsky | September 01, 2006

Only a dyed-in-the-wool leftist would think to label CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the three major networks, as the mainstream media.

Rich Galen | September 01, 2006

In 2006 the Democrats will, I promise you, overplay the public's unhappiness with Iraq. They have nothing else.

William Perry Pendley | September 01, 2006

In 1896, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harlan wrote in Plessy v. Ferguson: "Our Constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. [A]ll citizens are equal before the law."

Rich Lowry | September 01, 2006

On Iraq, the Democrats are the party of defeat. That's not a partisan smear, but a fact.

Jonathan Garthwaite | September 01, 2006

Townhall.com readers are on the forefront of a major shift in American politics. All the talk by politicians and conservative leaders of empowering the grassroots is finally turning into action.

Brent Bozell | September 01, 2006

After years spent ruining its brand, the company seems determined to regain its position as the standard-bearer for family movies, recently with one winner after another.

Jonah Goldberg | September 01, 2006

I will get hippo-choking amounts of e-mail from Bush-haters telling me that all I ever do is cut Bush slack. But these folks grade on the curve. By their standards, anything short of demanding that a half-starved badger be sewn into his belly flunks.

David Limbaugh | September 01, 2006

Democrats are outraged over President Bush's new series of national security speeches. There he goes again, politicizing the war.

Mona Charen | September 01, 2006

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that two men are being sought in connection with an arson at a Minneapolis mosque -- a crime that has attracted the attention of the FBI as a potential bias crime.

Oliver North | September 01, 2006

Here in the City of David, Israeli residents are deeply concerned that they are losing the battle for public opinion to the masters of terror. They are not alone.

Pat Buchanan | September 01, 2006

"President Likens Dewey to Hitler as Fascist Tool." So ran the New York Times headline on Oct. 26, 1948, after what Dewey biographer Richard Norton Smith called a "particularly vitriolic attack in Chicago" by Harry Truman.

Diana West | September 01, 2006

It's not easy to be shocked by jihad these days, five years and numberless atrocities after the Twin Towers imploded on almost 3,000 fellow citizens.

Kathryn Lopez | September 01, 2006

One day last January, Jonathan Tonkowich was sitting in math class at Thomas Aquinas College in southern California, daydreaming about how to do something constructive for the pro-life cause.

Paul Greenberg | September 01, 2006

Zipping up the overnighter, the same thought always occurs to me: I've done such a good job tidying up the house - so I won't be greeted by a mess when I come back - that it's really a shame to leave.

Paul Weyrich | September 01, 2006

As Labor Day approaches, we observe that many recent trends merit celebration.

Charles Krauthammer | September 01, 2006

Nasrallah's admission, vastly underplayed in the West, makes clear what the Lebanese already knew. Hezbollah may have won the propaganda war, but on the ground it lost. Badly.

Kathleen Parker | September 01, 2006

We don't often get to watch our media people convert to Islam, so the footage of Fox News' Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig has been riveting.

Mike Gallagher | September 01, 2006

Personally, I prefer a nation of united Americans. I’m sick of affirmative action quotas, the phrase “African-American”, and the ever-present race-baiters like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Lorie Byrd | September 01, 2006

I watched entirely too much television as a child. I was a big fan of Saturday Night Live and loved the Emily Litella character.

Tim Chapman | September 01, 2006

After being deluged with phone calls from the Porkbusting community, Stevens’ Senate office finally fessed up.

Joel Mowbray | September 01, 2006

Roger Schlesinger | August 31, 2006

I write many columns, generally 3 or 4 a week, and I do my best to give you information that can help, if you will take it to heart. But I am also a pragmatist.

Rick Amato | August 31, 2006

The Pendleton 8 are seven Marines and a naval corpsman being held in a brig at Camp Pendleton while waiting trial on charges of kidnapping and murder.

Ann Coulter | August 31, 2006

In addition to supporting Democrat Joe Lieberman over Republican Alan Schlesinger in Connecticut, President Bush is supporting the Democrat over the Republican in Rhode Island, too.

Cam Edwards | August 31, 2006

When is an anti-gunner a pro-gun advocate? The obvious answer is never, but that’s too simple a response.

Ed Feulner | August 31, 2006

Perhaps Thomas Wolfe was correct -- you can't go home again. Certainly that's what many former Louisiana residents are saying one year after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and nearby communities.

Cal Thomas | August 31, 2006

EDINBURGH — Former Vice President Al Gore blew through Edinburgh a few days ago and complimented the government on its contributions to diminishing the "threat'' of global warming.

"Village beats the drums for returning son." This Kenyan newspaper headline greeted Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., as he arrived, rock-star-like, in that country.

Matt Towery | August 31, 2006

Next Tuesday, Florida will likely follow the same pattern we have seen developing around the nation this midterm primary season.

Donald Lambro | August 31, 2006

Republicans have moved closer to the Democrats in a congressional voter-preference poll just as the election campaigns near the official Labor Day starting gate.

George Will | August 31, 2006

If you seek this year's emblematic election, look at Missouri.

Marvin Olasky | August 31, 2006

The thing is this: Some folks who suffered at the Superdome or Convention Center were there not because their homes were flooded, but because they were foodless

Alan Reynolds | August 31, 2006

I propose this new addition to my growing list of Reynolds' Laws: "The closer we get to elections, the worse economic reporting becomes."

Robert Novak | August 31, 2006

The problem is that Gingrich has played fast and loose with facts, understating the actual U.S. effort.

James J. Kilpatrick | August 31, 2006

eorge W. Bush took the presidential oath on that January day in 2001, came home from the Hill, and promptly issued Executive Order No. 13,199. Thus he created, overnight, the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

Emmett Tyrrell | August 31, 2006

This week in his speech before the national convention of the American Legion, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld made an unconscionable faux pas.

Hugh Hewitt | August 31, 2006

For more than a year the world has been on the lookout for any sign of avian flu spreading from birds to humans.

Rebecca Hagelin | August 31, 2006

It was parents’ orientation at my son’s new college when the young female co-ed introduced her academic pursuit as “Women’s Studies.”

Roger Schlesinger | August 31, 2006

Why is Wall Street so interested in the real estate market? They seem to have an opinion on every aspect, whether they understand it or not, letting nothing stand in their way.

Wed, Aug 30, 2006

Douglas MacKinnon | August 30, 2006

In a time of war, how do democratic governments deal with allegedly unbiased news organizations that may slant their coverage in favor of those who mean to destroy said governments?

Cliff May | August 30, 2006

We are where we are in Iraq, and it's not a comfortable place. If we could do it all over again, what would we do differently?

Michael Medved | August 30, 2006

Liberals regularly discredit themselves by their refusal to recognize the existence of evil in this world, and with their notorious reluctance to call that evil by its proper name.

Jonah Goldberg | August 30, 2006

Quick quiz: Who said, "Is this the time in our nation's history for our federal government to ban Almighty God from our classrooms?"

Michelle Malkin | August 30, 2006

What kind of cold-blooded thugs use ambulances as killing aids or propaganda tools? Islamic terrorists, of course.

John Stossel | August 30, 2006

It's amazing what competition does for consumers. The power to say no to one business and yes to another is awesome. Too bad we don't apply that idea to schools themselves.

Walter E. Williams | August 30, 2006

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court, in its Kelo v. New London decision, ruled that the private property of one American could be taken and given to another American as long as it served a public purpose.

Brent Bozell | August 30, 2006

If the credibility of the network news divisions is based on giving a "fair and balanced" picture of today's world, then ABC, CBS and NBC have done all the damage to themselves.

Tony Blankley | August 30, 2006

Quite surprisingly, what may turn out to be the world's most fitting epigram in our time was uttered by none other than the official spokesman of the Hamas-controlled Palestinian Authority, Ghazi Hamad.

Ben Shapiro | August 30, 2006

In the current war on Islamofascism, no platitude is nearly as ridiculous as the constant harangue that "if we do X, then the terrorists have won."

Terry Jeffrey | August 30, 2006

A hundred and one years ago, on a field in the Bronx, N.Y., a tragedy occurred that led to a radical off-season change in the football rules -- making the 2006 season the 100th anniversary of the forward pass.

Linda Chavez | August 30, 2006

So now we know. The man behind the leak of former CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity was not presidential adviser Karl Rove.

Donald Lambro | August 30, 2006

Republicans have moved closer to the Democrats in a congressional voter-preference poll just as the election campaigns near the official Labor Day starting gate.

Jacob Sullum | August 30, 2006

Three years ago, federal prosecutors likened McLean, Va., pain doctor William Hurwitz to "a street-corner crack dealer." But it turned out there were a few differences.

Kathleen Parker | August 30, 2006

Nowhere is the conflict between virtue and practicality more vivid than in Tallahassee, Fla. -- capital of the nation's fourth-largest state -- where city officials are debating whether to build a new coal-fired power plant.

Austin Bay | August 30, 2006

Israel's and Hezbollah's War of the Rockets has entered a new phase: the War of the Wallets, the race to gain political capital by rebuilding southern Lebanon.

Paul Greenberg | August 30, 2006

I'm in luck, it's raining. Just as it was the first time I visited the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum here just off Louis Prang Street on the Fenway.

Paul Weyrich | August 30, 2006

When I traveled for a decade in the former Soviet Empire I heard heart-wrenching stories from people who had suffered in the gulag thanks to the thugs who were running the Soviet Union.

Roger Schlesinger | August 29, 2006

Most purchasers of a new house know about 30-year loans, and a good majority of them know about 15 year fixed loans, but very few know about a 20-year loan. That is a financial tragedy!

Maggie Gallagher | August 29, 2006

Something is different about America. Consider this both a reassurance and a warning: The future belongs to the people and peoples who dare to give themselves to love.

William F. Buckley | August 29, 2006

The wires are heavy with the question of Iraq. The defeat of Sen. Joe Lieberman in the Democratic primary in Connecticut was a call to outright defiance by Democrats running for re-election.

Chuck Colson | August 29, 2006

Some birthdays just aren't worth celebrating. When your legacy includes exhibitionism, promiscuity, and greed, it's better not to draw attention to yourself.

Rich Lowry | August 29, 2006

New Orleans was never a natural phenomenon. It was a triumph of human ingenuity

Thomas Sowell | August 29, 2006

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

David Limbaugh | August 29, 2006

When I wrote about Jimmy Carter's antics recently, some suggested I should quit wasting my time discussing someone so irrelevant.

Cal Thomas | August 29, 2006

Conservatives, under new leader David Cameron, enjoy 40 percent approval, according to the latest Guardian/ICM Poll.

Dennis Prager | August 29, 2006

Last year at UCLA, I debated a professor who argued that Israel and the Palestinians were moral equivalents. He is not alone (especially on college campuses) in his lack of understanding of the immoral nature of the Islamic enemies of America and Israel.

Pat Buchanan | August 29, 2006

This is a "mind-boggling concept," exploded Lou Dobbs. It must cause Americans to think our political and academic elites have "gone utterly mad."

Debra J. Saunders | August 29, 2006

"There's a certain pride about being able to make it as an Oakland police officer," KTVU reporter Ken Wayne noted in a story last week about Oakland, Calif., police compensation. For the majority of those hard-working Oakland cops, there also must be a pride in not abusing a contract that invites abuse.

Bruce Bartlett | August 29, 2006

Last week, a federal appeals court in Washington handed down an important decision relating to the definition of income for tax purposes.

William Rusher | August 29, 2006

The bookstores, journals of opinion and newspaper Op Ed pages are chockfull, these days, of books and articles on the subject of "What's Wrong With the Democrats?"

Paul Weyrich | August 29, 2006

Some time ago I predicted that the Democrats would win control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate this November. Despite what I felt was a lucid explanation for that assertion, some readers wanted a more expanded explanation.

Bill Murchison | August 29, 2006

When fewer and fewer Americans want a newspaper on their doorsteps on account of sheer indifference to the product, or zeal for scouring the Internet for news, the ordinary newspaper publisher begins to feel like a buggy-whip manufacturer in Henry Ford's Detroit.

Frank Gaffney | August 29, 2006

Urban legend has it that populations of wild rodents known as lemmings periodically commit mass suicide by throwing themselves off cliffs.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | August 29, 2006

If you're the parents of a student who has just one more year to go in high school, you might be telling yourself the worst is over.

Burt Prelutsky | August 28, 2006

A recent Zogby poll, conducted at the behest of a new TV game show, divulged a lot of facts about Americans which most pundits have glommed onto as proof that we’re a nation of ignoramuses.

Phyllis Schlafly | August 28, 2006

Is America merely an accident of geography, or a job market for the world, or a multiethnic, multilingual lot of people who agreed (more or less, and probably temporarily) to live under a constitution?

Jack Kemp | August 28, 2006

For all these reasons and more, I look forward to helping re-elect Sen. Joe Lieberman.

Star Parker | August 28, 2006

Spike Lee took his cameras and crew to New Orleans to film a documentary about Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. The four-hour production, which aired on HBO, is, unfortunately, about as destructive as was the disaster it depicts.

Rich Galen | August 28, 2006

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is a goofball. Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco is incompetent. Former FEMA director Michael Brown has an ego the size of a category 5 hurricane.

Mary Katharine Ham | August 28, 2006

Does the mainstream press ever wonder why conservatives distrust them so much?

Mike Adams | August 28, 2006

I've made a living over the last few years by exposing the intolerance, hypocrisy, and intellectual dishonesty of the academic left.

Michael Barone | August 28, 2006

Theyve been blowing pretty strongly against George W. Bush and the Republicans this spring and early this summer. Now, their velocity looks to be tapering off or perhaps shifting direction.

Paul Greenberg | August 28, 2006

The function of baseball at its best is that of any high art: to take us out of ourselves, to recall us to life, to disrupt the normal unhappiness.

Robert Novak | August 28, 2006

The background of a federal district court declaring President Bush's national security eavesdropping unconstitutional was a conservative's fantasy.

Bill Bennett | August 28, 2006

Lincoln grieved at the toll the grinding trench warfare was taking on the Union forces—and the entire Union. For Lincoln did not simply mourn Northern losses.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | August 28, 2006

I know how to fight. Like most American boys – and perhaps a few girls – I learned the very basics of fighting on the playground in elementary school.

Sun, Aug 27, 2006

Rich Tucker | August 27, 2006

August is often, as they say in the media business, a slow month. But The Washington Post is filling the void this year by ginning up some news.

George Will | August 27, 2006

Ever since Commodore Perry's black ships entered the harbor here in 1853, the Japanese have wondered whether their nation could modernize without becoming thoroughly Westernized.

Paul Jacob | August 27, 2006

A recent vote in Prague bodes ill for clarity in the solar system, in the name of clarity (of course).

Kevin McCullough | August 27, 2006

Liberals are actively undermining first amendment rights to free speech by trying to crush opposing views.
