Kevin McCullough | March 11, 2007

Diabolical liberals are once again showing their disdain for homosexuals, and their lack of love for those who struggle with sexual sin.

Doug Giles | March 10, 2007

If I’m in a bar fight and I’m getting my butt handed to me, I’m not looking for perfection; I’m looking for a fellow warrior who can cave in the skull of my enemy. And that’s what Ann Coulter does.

James J. Kilpatrick | March 10, 2007

"Speak the speech, I pray you," said Hamlet to his Players, "as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue ..."

Nathan Tabor | March 10, 2007

As a result of this phenomenon, once the major media have anointed a front-runner for President, they don’t like a maverick honing in on his—or this year, her—territory.

Is Hillary Clinton the Walter Mitty of presidential candidates when she takes credit for the successes of her husband's presidency? There's a lot of “Bill and I” and "we” in her speeches.

Wayne Winegarden | March 10, 2007

The global warming scam has nothing to do with the science behind global warming. It has everything to do with the economics.

Diana West | March 10, 2007

Only one faith on Earth may be more messianic than Islam: multiculturalism. Without it -- without its fanatics who believe all civilizations are the same -- the engine that projects Islam into the unprotected heart of Western civilization would stall and fail. It's as simple as that.

Donald Lambro | March 10, 2007

It doesn't get much attention in the news, which is all polls, pretension and self-promotion at this point, but the Democrats' front-runners come with a lot of troubling baggage of their own making.

Robert Novak | March 10, 2007

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is viewed by Democratic insiders as rising to the top of the party's second-tier presidential candidates, becoming a leading vice-presidential prospect and an increasingly possible nominee for president.

Patrick Ruffini | March 10, 2007

Will print newspapers even exist twenty years from now? Judging by the pile of newspapers that stack up in my recycling bin in mint condition each week, the odds can't be good.

Brent Bozell | March 09, 2007

Most American parents display an optimism about their children living in a richer, more technologically advanced world and as they grow, that they'll be healthier with a longer life expectancy. All that said, there's also a remarkable pessimism about the moral decline they are bequeathing to the next generation.

John Hawkins | March 09, 2007

So, as you see, it is liberals, not conservatives, who are disregarding science in order to further their political concerns.

Chuck Colson | March 09, 2007

The divide is not between Republican and Democrats or liberals and conservatives—it’s between those who regard children as a blessing and those who view them as, at best, a burden.

Janice Shaw Crouse | March 09, 2007

The United Nations (U.N.) continues to be predictable and manipulative, as revealed in the first draft of the “agreed conclusions” released this week at the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).

Mike Gallagher | March 09, 2007

Joy Behar, one of the hosts of ABC-TV’s “The View”, announces that she’s delighted that Vice-President Cheney is “in trouble” and that his recent health scare, a potentially life-threatening blood clot in his leg, is due to his “lying.”

Will March 4, 2007, the 42nd anniversary of the Selma, Ala., march for voting rights, propel Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill.) presidential candidacy with the same force that Sept. 11, 2004 energized George W. Bush's pursuit of a second term?

Rebecca Hagelin | March 09, 2007

When the U.S. population officially hit the 300-million mark last October, there weren’t any celebrations. Most news organizations took note of it and moved on. Environmentalists and other liberals crabbed about having more people around to consume precious resources.

Thomas Sowell | March 09, 2007

If you wanted a textbook example of what is wrong about appointing a special prosecutor, the prosecution of White House aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby is a classic.

Jonah Goldberg | March 09, 2007

Even Denis Collins, the omnipresent juror-journalist, says he and his peers feel sympathy for Libby, the "fall guy" in this whole spectacle. But really, who is the real victim?

David Limbaugh | March 09, 2007

The whole Scooter Libby case, from start to finish, has been based on the left's depraved obsession with substantiating the lie that President Bush and Vice President Cheney lied us into war.

Mona Charen | March 09, 2007

Patrick Fitzgerald, transformed into Ahab by the post of independent counsel, seized upon inconsistent statements by Libby and other witnesses to bring a perjury action. Now that the verdict is in, many on the left are admitting that Libby wasn't the issue at all.

Oliver North | March 09, 2007

What Chavez and his Latin-leftist allies don't realize is that rioting radicals clashing with security forces are nothing compared to what Bush left behind. He picked a good time to get out of town.

Linda Chavez | March 09, 2007

Administration critics are gloating over Scooter Libby's conviction this week in the Valerie Plame leak case, but no one should be happy about this prosecution. The more we learn about the motivations of the federal prosecutor in this case and the attitudes of some jury members, the more it appears that justice has not been served.

Paul Greenberg | March 09, 2007

Best of all, there is the generous amount of space and research the Times devotes to its obituaries. There are few things livelier than its coverage of the dead.

Rich Tucker | March 09, 2007

But the war was about much more than WMD. We know because, back in 2002, our lawmakers told us so.

Ed Feulner | March 09, 2007

There's rarely a downside to being strong. But threats quickly emerge when a country is seen as too weak.

Lorie Byrd | March 09, 2007

Watching media coverage of the Scooter Libby guilty verdict this week often left me feeling like I was living in an alternate universe. In the fairy tale world of liberal news, the old sing-song campaign line Al Gore once used about everything that should be up is down and everything that should be down is up, comes to life.

Alan Reynolds | March 09, 2007

During the euphoric high-tech boom of the 1990s, America Online offered my daughter a thousand stock options to recruit her away from another firm.

Charles Krauthammer | March 09, 2007

There are lies and there are memory lapses.

Kathleen Parker | March 09, 2007

Now everybody has a camera, and youthful indiscretions are captured for all time. And suddenly, we're not so young anymore.

Burt Prelutsky | March 09, 2007

So how was it, you’re no doubt wondering, that I came to dread heights? Well, at the age of 16, I went on my first roller coaster. To this day, I don’t know whether the metal bar that is supposed to keep you in place is supposed to lock securely.

Paul Kengor | March 09, 2007

Digging into the past can yield unexpected treasures buried in the annals of history. A great reward for an author is to uncover those golden moments, unearthed when past presidential advisers talk about things they never dared to share while in office.

Bill Steigerwald | March 09, 2007

Every four years, when it’s time to elect a president, Americans are reminded that there still is a New Hampshire. The Granite State’s famed presidential primary, first in the nation since 1952, is a circus of retail politics and national media coverage that often produces surprising results. To find out how things are shaping up in New Hampshire, we called Joe McQuaid, publisher of the New Hampshire Union Leader of Manchester.

Roger Schlesinger | March 08, 2007

There are a number of readers who eventually send in the same questions that led me to this column. I am not sure why there is as much confusion over this financial tool as there is but nevertheless I am going to try to clear up some of the confusion.

John Noonan | March 08, 2007

Sometimes I read liberal blogs. Not for education, of course. I suppose I read them as some sort of perverse method of reinforcing my convictions on the war.

Michael Reagan | March 08, 2007

What kind of people are we? Is nothing sacred anymore? Are there no limits on how far the media can go in digging into the personal lives of candidates? It’s beginning to look like the answer is a resounding “No!” A brand new form of child abuse is the media’s pursuit of the children of political candidates in an effort to trap them into taking pot shots at their parents.

Victor Davis Hanson | March 08, 2007

In today's Roman circus, talking populist while enjoying the high life mixes no better for the left than mouthing old-fashioned virtue and living the low life do for the right.

Ross Mackenzie | March 08, 2007

Comments about Iraq (etc.) from across the ideological spectrum. . .

Carrie Lukas | March 08, 2007

Each individual symbolizes waning societal prejudices, and that’s worth celebrating. No doubt more celebrations will come as representatives of each racial/ethnic/religious/gender group takes the oath of office. Yet when the “historic” becomes commonplace, it might be time to reexamine the lens through which we judge the extraordinary and recognize that Americans are interested in candidates’ ideas and policy positions, not their personal backgrounds.

Betsy Hart | March 08, 2007

"It's not fair." My kids have, for some reason, been all over that one more than usual lately. It's not fair they have so much homework, it's not fair they don't get to play more video games, it's not fair that so-and-so down the street gets a ski trip and they don't, it's not fair that one child got four more seconds of "tuck-in" time than another.

Zev Chafets | March 08, 2007

Question: How can the gun-controlling, abortion-supporting, gay-friendly Rudy Giuliani be 25 percentage points ahead of John McCain, his nearest GOP presidential competitor, in the latest Newsweek poll?

Phil Harris | March 08, 2007

If Theodore Roosevelt were alive today, he likely would kick his spittoon across the room after viewing only a single day's worth of our modern journalism in action.

Steve Chapman | March 08, 2007

When George W. Bush assured us during the 2000 campaign that Cheney "is a man of integrity and sound judgment, who has proven that public service can be noble service," I doubt this is what Americans were expecting.

Michael Fumento | March 08, 2007

Most people would rather suffer a jaw’s worth of root canals than go to Iraq. Most reporters, too. But there are a tiny number who actually feel the need to do so – even to the extent that they're willing to pay all their own expenses in the hope, but nothing more – of recovering part or all of those expenses through donations and selling articles about their experiences.

George Will | March 08, 2007

The axiom is as old as human striving: The perfect is the enemy of the good. In politics this means that insisting on perfection in a candidate interferes with selecting a satisfactory one.

Larry Elder | March 08, 2007

Every day in America, ordinary people show up and perform with a sense of duty, honor and responsibility.

Cal Thomas | March 08, 2007

It's time for that annual ritual known as March Madness. No, this March Madness isn't about college basketball. It's about how much money Congress plans to attach to appropriations bills to curry favor back home with their pet projects.

Suzanne Fields | March 08, 2007

Issues of date rape, sexual harassment and campus rallies to "take back the night" have been replaced with a rush of salacious sensitivity, identifying something called "vaginal personalities" and erotic effervescence.

Debra J. Saunders | March 08, 2007

After all those years of educators focusing on improving the basics in public schools, how is it possible that the National Assessment for Educational Progress just gave America's high school seniors their lowest score for reading since 1992?

Matt Towery | March 08, 2007

Last year about this time, I wrote a column about the impending disaster in America's housing market, including condominiums.

Donald Lambro | March 08, 2007

After his well-received speech before the conservative political action conference here last week, former governor Mitt Romney met with two key leaders in the Reagan Revolution of the 1980s.

William Rusher | March 08, 2007

A friend of mine asked me the other day why, given all the headaches the job involves these days, anybody in his (or her) right mind would want the presidency. I confessed to being as mystified as he was. But the evidence is right before our eyes.

Robert Novak | March 08, 2007

George W. Bush lost control of this issue when he permitted a special prosecutor to make decisions that, unlike going after a drug dealer or mafia kingpin, turned out to be inherently political.

Joel C. Rosenberg | March 08, 2007

But one thing is increasingly certain: the eyes of the nations are riveted upon Israel and the Middle East, the epicenter of the momentous events shaking our world and shaping our future. And now a new crisis is brewing.

Ken Blackwell | March 08, 2007

It's an odd situation for a leader of McCain's stature. Especially when you factor in the enormous amount of time he spent campaigning for Republican candidates during the 2006 midterm elections. In fact, McCain backed my candidacy for Ohio governor during a hard fought primary.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 08, 2007

I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, has been found guilty of lying and faces many years in prison. Joseph C. Wilson, his tormentor, has been found guilty of lying, and out in Hollywood they are going to make a movie of his life. He is Hollywood's idea of a hero.

Marvin Olasky | March 08, 2007

I thought the war that's now almost four years old could be different. With "smart bombs" we would

Ann Coulter | March 07, 2007

This makes it official: It's illegal to be Republican.

Since Teddy Kennedy walked away from a dead girl with only a wrist slap (which was knocked down to a mild talking-to, plus time served: zero), Democrats have apparently become a protected class in America, immune from criminal prosecution no matter what they do.

David Strom | March 07, 2007

Just to be clear: Scooter Libby faces jail time for trying to cover up the fact that he did not commit a crime. In fact, at no time does the Special Prosecutor ever allege that the underlying crime he was investigating ever took place. It never happened.

Roger Schlesinger | March 07, 2007

Wall Street is going in one direction and Main Street is barely going anywhere which really has a lot to do with China, the outsourcing of jobs and the changing nature of our way of life

Rich Galen | March 07, 2007

Regular readers may remember that I wrote, on January 17, 2007 prior to the beginning of the trial that President Bush should Pardon Scooter Libby.

Brent Bozell | March 07, 2007

Most liberal media outlets can't be bothered to visit, let alone cover, the Conservative Political Action Conference every winter. But this year's event drew a large amount of publicity. CPAC hasn't been this notorious since reporter-fabricator Stephen Glass made up stories of wild sexual antics and drug use at CPAC hotel rooms and bathrooms 10 years ago for The New Republic.

Debra J. Saunders | March 07, 2007

Like former President Clinton, Libby apparently thought that he was so clever that he could perjure himself -- by lying to FBI agents and a grand jury probing the leak of CIA agent Valerie Wilson's identity. In their arrogance, both men were steamrolled by a truth any idiot in Washington can tell you. To wit: The cover-up is worse than the crime.

Michelle Malkin | March 07, 2007

In Washington state this week, the peace brigade held a dress rehearsal at the Port of Tacoma -- where they showed support for our troops by taunting the Stryker Brigade and local police guarding against obstruction of the convoys headed to Iraq. More than 300 Stryker vehicles and other equipment are being moved from Fort Lewis to Iraq in support of the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division's upcoming deployment as part of the ongoing "surge" and counterinsurgency efforts.

When pressed about her qualifications for the presidency, Sen. Hillary Clinton falls back on her husband's domestic-policy record - claiming credit for the good economy, welfare reform and the balanced budget.

Walter E. Williams | March 07, 2007

Both chambers of the Commonwealth of Virginia's General Assembly passed a resolution saying government-sanctioned slavery "ranks as the most horrendous of all depredations of human rights and violations of our founding ideals in our nation's history.

Michael Medved | March 07, 2007

In the run-up to the fateful election of 2008, conservatives face a clear-cut choice: we can rebuild our movement as a broad-ranging, mainstream coalition and restore our governing majority, or else settle for a semi-permanent role as angry, doom-speaking complainers on the fringes of American politics and culture.

Janice Shaw Crouse | March 07, 2007

Ironically, the issue of child marriage, like abortion, is a dilemma for the left. The left is opposed to sex-selection abortions but works toward universal abortion-on-demand.

Jon Sanders | March 07, 2007

Howard Dean wants Republican presidential candidates to apologize for Ann Coulter's insinuation that Edwards is a "faggot."

John Stossel | March 07, 2007

Politicians and security analysts constantly remind us that a terrorist attack is just a matter of time.

Jonah Goldberg | March 07, 2007

In 2006, the Democrats took advantage of these accumulated perceptions, as they should have, and charged back into power in both the House and the Senate.

Tony Blankley | March 07, 2007

Some neuro-scientists see evidence that man is genetically hard-wired to be disposed to religious conviction.

Pat Buchanan | March 07, 2007

The conviction of Scooter Libby on four counts of perjury and obstruction of justice is first of all a human tragedy.

Terry Jeffrey | March 07, 2007

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. John Daniel Shannon belongs to a government-run health-care program. He discovered how it works after he was shot in Iraq.

Ben Shapiro | March 07, 2007

This is no normal time, and Giuliani is no Rockefeller. Yes, he's socially liberal. Yes, he's anti-gun. But unlike Rockefeller -- and like Eisenhower -- Giuliani has cachet. He has an earned reputation for leadership.

Austin Bay | March 07, 2007

Petroleum is the resource that dominates discussion of Iraq's economy. However, water and rich agricultural land make the country much more than a desert oil spigot.

Paul Greenberg | March 07, 2007

A couple of years ago, the Japanese consul general at New Orleans dropped by to straighten me out about the Rape of Nanking - a six-weeks-long orgy of rape, murder, torture and general barbarity that a Japanese textbook had just referred to as "the Nanking Incident."

Kathleen Parker | March 07, 2007

The growing consensus seems to be that the former first lady's ascendancy as first woman president of the U.S. is less assured than previously thought, thanks in large part to the junior senator from Illinois, Barack Obama.

Jacob Sullum | March 07, 2007

New York is about to become the 20th state with a civil commitment program for sex offenders, thereby embracing an increasingly fashionable contradiction:

Janice Shaw Crouse | March 06, 2007

There is almost no media coverage of the 51st Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in any of the various media outlets either here in the U.S. or anywhere in the world.

Matt Barber | March 06, 2007

Lefty word-watchdogs and their allies in the mainstream media have hurt feelings … again. As per usual, liberals are frothing at the mouth in a fit of very selective, self-righteous indignation over provocative comments made by Ann Coulter and are hunting the conservative firebrand with pitchforks, torches and rope in hand.

Rich Lowry | March 06, 2007

Giuliani demonstrated it in New York. He ran the fourth-largest government in the country, from an office that had awesome powers (unlike the governorship of Texas), at a time when the city was in crisis, without a strong party to back him and in the teeth of a hostile press.

Phil Harris | March 06, 2007

Now, before the corporate lawyers for these beverage giants suffer the effects of knotty underwear, let me state for the record that these two companies are not implicated by any scientific study that I am aware of, for causing global climate change.

Thomas Sowell | March 06, 2007

Some of us had just gotten used to the fact that it is now 2007, when all sorts of people started acting as if it is 2008.

David Limbaugh | March 06, 2007

Never mind that many of the credentialed signatories are anything but experts on climate science. They are scientists, and they buy into the dogma. End of discussion.

Debra J. Saunders | March 06, 2007

Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," was billed as "a passionate and inspirational look at one man's fervent crusade to halt global warming's deadly progress in its tracks by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it."

James J. Kilpatrick | March 06, 2007

Without a murmur of comment or dissent, the Supreme Court last week effectively affirmed a sentence of life imprisonment imposed upon an Arizona man for possession of 20 dirty pictures. The court's indifference to the Constitution is arguably a more serious offense than the crime of Morton Berger.

Dean Barnett | March 06, 2007

The revelations regarding the conditions at Walter Reed Hospital are of course a story of an entirely different magnitude. Nonetheless, the thought of Henry Waxman brandishing subpoenas while The New York Times writes partisan editorials might make a lot of Republicans reflexively circle the wagons around the once again besieged Bush administration.

Hugh Hewitt | March 06, 2007

McCain's charisma is an asset, but is it enough to revive his flagging presidential campaign?

Chuck Colson | March 06, 2007

What difference does a worldview make? Around the world, we are seeing the clash of civilizations in action. In recent days, that clash has given us a story of life, and stories of death.

Caroline Glick | March 06, 2007

Last week it was reported that major supporters of Brandeis University have cut off their donations in retaliation for the university's hosting of Israel and American-Jewry basher and former president Jimmy Carter on campus.

Kevin McCullough | March 06, 2007

Having won the CPAC straw poll and beginning to pass long time front runner John McCain in national polls Mitt Romney's profile is beginning to be raised and thus I felt the need when I had a few minutes with the candidate this week to ask him some very direct questions about his position on issues.

Ed Feulner | March 06, 2007

In any policy battle, it helps to have allies. So it’s good that AARP seems finally ready to help press for reform of entitlements such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | March 06, 2007

For perspective, Hannity then provided clips of interviews with U.S. troops he and his reporters interviewed after the airing of 60 Minutes episode, all of whom expressed a pride in service and a resolute desire to complete the mission.

Cal Thomas | March 06, 2007

Is it possible to have cleaner and more engaging politics that challenge the mind and offer real solutions to our problems, instead of crass appeals to our lower nature, the flip-flopping in order to garner favor with a particular interest group and the insincerity that seems to be behind it all?

Bill Murchison | March 06, 2007

You're comfortably orthodox in the main matters of daily life: marriage, family, church.

Bruce Bartlett | March 06, 2007

A few months ago, I caused a bit of a stir by suggesting that the best way for libertarian ideas to advance is by destroying the Libertarian Party. Since it cannot win, due to the nature of our political system, it is impotent and only ends up crushing the spirits of libertarian-minded political activists.

Lynn O'Shaughnessy | March 06, 2007

Individual Retirement Accounts may be simple, but they continue to befuddle investors. My recent column on IRAs prompted lots of questions. In fact, I get almost as many e-mails from IRA columns as when I trash annuities.

Mike Adams | March 06, 2007

The association between Richard Nixon and Kent State has always revolved around the university’s inability to control war protestors with a proclivity towards violence.

David Limbaugh | March 06, 2007

In spiritually weak moments, I sometimes envy the blind faith of the environ-zealots, even if the object of their faith is hardly sacred.

Dennis Prager | March 06, 2007

An unwillingness to identify evil and a desire to hurt those who do confront it were not confined to Western fellow travelers during the age of Communism.

Janice Shaw Crouse | March 06, 2007

I spent last week — and will spend this week — at the United Nations (U.N.) headquarters in New York City, so the question about whether or not the U.N. is worth fixing is pretty timely for me.

Pat Buchanan | March 06, 2007

Taxpayers are being lied to and swindled by the education industry, which has failed them, failed America and flunked its assignment -- and should be expelled for cheating.

Mon, Mar 05, 2007

John Fund | March 05, 2007

WASHINGTON — This weekend's 34th annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference was the largest ever, with 6,300 people registered. But attendees also couldn't remember a time when conservatives were so unsettled about their political future.

Paul Greenberg | March 05, 2007

The Honorable from Texarkana found he'd wandered smack dab into the middle of the Great Apostrophe War, which has been going on since there was an apostrophe to war over.

Frank Gaffney | March 05, 2007

It is becoming increasingly dangerous to be a critic of Vladimir Putin, the elected dictator of Russia. That is, as KGB thugs like Putin used to say during the Soviet era, “no accident, comrade.”

Herman Cain | March 05, 2007

Politicians use words to inspire, cajole and convince people that their particular policy prescriptions are without fault and beneficial to both the least among us and the nation as a whole.

Michael Barone | March 05, 2007

Education Secretary Margaret Spellings is optimistic that it will be reauthorized. Sen. Edward Kennedy and Rep. George Miller have scheduled a bipartisan joint meeting of their committees for March 13 -- both played major roles in 2001 shaping the bill, which passed with bipartisan majorities.

Kathryn Lopez | March 05, 2007

Frances Kissling, go-to gal for media quotes about all things Catholic, has stepped down as head of Catholics for a Free Choice. Religion reporting just got a whole lot harder.

Robert Novak | March 05, 2007

The Federal Railroad Administration handed a rare victory to the American taxpayer last week by denying a questionable $2.33 billion loan application by the Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern (DM&E) Railroad

Rich Galen | March 05, 2007

Washington is in full-throated roar over the conditions for, and treatment of, long-term recovering soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington.

Suzanne Fields | March 05, 2007

The movies aren't what they used to be. Hollywood still imagines that it's the center of the cosmos, but the movies, politically correct as they have become (think Al Gore's Oscar for a slide show), don't move us as they once did.

Donald Lambro | March 05, 2007

The global economy is a complicated entity that relies on accurate information about financial trends, something that was missing at strategic times during last week's market meltdown.

Carol Platt Liebau | March 05, 2007

There is something profoundly surreal about having known someone like Barack Obama, whose political career has seen a meteoric rise that is the stuff of political fairytales.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | March 05, 2007

A week ago Saturday, Virginia took a bold step to apologize for their role in slavery. Was this an unnecessary step? I don’t think so.

Dinesh D'Souza | March 05, 2007

The Pelosi Democrats in Congress and the leading Democratic presidential contenders all stress that things aren’t going well in Iraq. Yet they all seem quite pleased about this.

Star Parker | March 05, 2007

It is unfortunate that so much of the discussion about how to deal with poverty in our country consists of well-meaning people talking past each other.

Caroline Glick | March 05, 2007

The general tendency of Westerners is to view global jihad as a foreign policy issue.

Armstrong Williams | March 05, 2007

All the rage these days is that Iran could be the next Iraq. We continually hear frightening stories about their nuclear arms build up, their potentially dangerous leader, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, their freedom-less (read un-democratic) society, and their support against American soldiers and officials in Iraq.

Burt Prelutsky | March 05, 2007

It is alleged that Groucho Marx, upon once being invited to join a country club, declined on the grounds that he refused to belong to any group that would have Groucho Marx as a member.

Doug Wilson | March 05, 2007

According to the 2006 report of the trustees of the Social Security and Medicare trust funds, the two entitlement programs owe $37 trillion more in benefits than they will be able to pay.

Gregory Koukl | March 04, 2007

I resent the Discovery Channel's attempt to demean and belittle Christianity by saying it is based on a lie. It is hard for me to believe that The Discovery Channel would dare do such a “documentary” on any other religion.

Mary Grabar | March 04, 2007

In response to the recent assault by “tolerant” atheists, I am going to explain why it is necessary to maintain our Christian heritage in order to sustain our democracy.

Jonathan Garthwaite | March 04, 2007

Well, this week's Top Ten could probably just be Mike Adams and nine runners-up as Mike's investigative report on Kent State professor Julio Pino caught the attention of readers, newspapers, Fox News, and the Drudge Report. One of the most read pieces in a long-long time. To get to Mike's report though, you're going to have to get through nine other fantastic pieces from Doug Giles, Dennis Prager, Thomas Sowell, Michael Medved, and others.

Frank Pastore | March 04, 2007

I’m assuming you’ve already heard all about Da Vinci Code II? Only this time it isn’t Dan Brown, Tom Hanks, Ron How-ard and Sony Pictures that are responsible for the predictable just-in-time-for-Easter-Jesus-isn’t-really-divine tale that comes every year at the beginning of Spring Training.

George Will | March 04, 2007

Hillary Clinton's campaign did not display overconfidence when it directed the recent fusillade at Barack Obama. Her campaign's rhetorical megatonnage was in response to a prominent Obama contributor saying rude things about her.

Robert Novak | March 04, 2007

Greg Craig, a Washington super-lawyer with close ties to the Clintons, is supporting Sen. Barack Obama for president.

Steve Chapman | March 04, 2007

Thanks to the growing demands of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military has had increasing trouble finding and keeping recruits. So it's had to lower its standards.

Ken Connor | March 04, 2007

Despite the fact that it has been more than a year since he left his job as the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan's words still have the power to move markets.
