The almost instant reject of the central recommendations of the ISG Report by key officials in Iraq and Israel, and serious observers of the war is a refreshing bit of resolve.
As the final hours of the 109th Congress wind down, a handful of Senate conservatives have taken it upon themselves to ensure that the final act of the Republican Congressional majority will not be the passage of a bunch of pork-laden spending bills.
While public opinion is all over the board as to what is or is not the most important issue to Americans, I argue that, for the first time, a series of foreign and domestic happenings are converging at once and threaten our nation as never before.

The Republican Congress closes shop this month as Democrats prepare to take over the business and the special interests try to figure out what the changeover means for their agendas.
With the Congressional elections behind us, and the Baker-Hamilton commission's report published at last, the stage would now seem set for a major national debate on the central question: Should the United States continue to seek "victory" in Iraq (however that is defined), or withdraw its forces from that country and leave it to whatever its fate may be?
Mary Cheney’s pregnancy poses problems not just for her child, but also for all Americans. Her action repudiates traditional values and sets an appalling example for young people at a time when father absence is the most pressing social problem facing the nation.
The "bipartisan" Iraq panel has recommended that Iran and Syria can help stabilize Iraq. You know, the way Germany and Russia helped stabilize Poland in '39.

We, however, don’t make a display of it in order to draw false attention to our persecuted status. The imams, some of whom have been linked to terrorist organizations, however, it turns out were doing even more than that.
Granted, it was going to be tough enough for President Bush to win confirmation for another conservative nominee to the court in the face of a militant minority should a vacancy occur, but now that the Democrats have control it will be virtually impossible.
When should you begin taking Social Security payments?
There is nothing much wrong with Iraq that can't be improved by having fewer American troops there. So contend outgoing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, the anti-war stalwart Rep. John Murtha, and, apparently, the James Baker-Lee Hamilton-led Iraq Study Group.

Few people today think divorce and single parenthood are equal-opportunity misfortunes in a house on the beach of Malibu or a trailer camp in West Virginia, but we're still slow in finding solutions for the disastrous consequences of single parenthood in the underclass, which more than any other single ingredient contributes to a caste system in America.
