If Rodney King’s dream of us “all just gettin’ along” is going to come to pass then Obama and Henry “Yo Mama” Gates, Jr. had better dial down on the insults, faux remorse and racial rhetoric aimed at us white devils.
While Republicans were tripping over themselves to pose with the party's Log Cabin branch and join the march of inevitability, a beauty queen made it OK to confidently acknowledge reality, in a loving and beautiful and even tolerant way.
As a columnist for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the newspaper of record for Broward County, Michael Mayo is a fairly astute fellow. But that hasn’t made him immune to credit card issuers pulling the rug from under him. This past April he posted the following tale of personal woe:
With the House pushing for another 2 billion to be injected into the cash-for-clunkers program, auto dealers have found themselves in a sticky situation.
Recently in a Washington Times radio interview, RNC Chairman Michael Steele was expressing his concerns regarding health care reform.
Let’s call this what it is: A new bull market in stocks has emerged from the ashes of the financial meltdown and the deep recession that followed. And it’s signaling the onset of economic recovery. Free-market capitalism is more durable, resilient and self-correcting than its detractors would have us believe.
judge in Washington State ruled that 138,500 residents who signed a petition protesting a recent move to give gay couples the same rights as married couples will not have their names released on the internet as requested by a pro-gay lobbying group.
I am gratified that an awakened public has sent Congress an unequivocal message not to socialize our health care system, but note that this war is just beginning.
By this time, I’m sure we’ve all heard more than we care to about Professor Henry Gates. Still, I can’t let it go without tossing in my two cents. Admitting he didn’t know the facts of the case didn’t prevent President Obama, allegedly our first post-racial chief executive, from siding with the black professor and admonishing a white Cambridge policeman.
Yesterday, Barack Obama was God. Today, he's fallen from grace, the magic gone, his health care reform dead. If you believed the first idiocy -- and half the mainstream media did -- you'll believe the second. Don't believe either.
Could it be that the dire and desperate need for health care reform is overblown? Maybe the epic number of people suffering with no health care thanks to our badly broken system is exaggerated? Is it possible that health care doesn’t need to be wrested from private sector operation and made over top to bottom at cost of trillions by The Amazing Ozbama and his Czars?
The president inexplicably decided to expand his response by saying the Cambridge police acted "stupidly" in their handling of the matter -- while admitting that he did not yet have all of the facts at his disposal.
Recently, President Manuel Zelaya attempted to subvert his country's laws and democratic institutions in pursuit of the kind power enjoyed by such left-wing and anti-American strongmen as Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, Cuba's Raul Castro and Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega.
Stop the presses (or the tweets)! Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's numbers are falling!
On my last visit to the UK three months ago, Members of Parliament were embroiled in a scandal involving outrageous expense claims for such things as moat cleaning, a baby crib and second homes that were sometimes occupied by friends and relatives, or not at all.
Several weeks ago, the press was full of stories that pointed out Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's absence from important international confabs. Even the most "mainstream" of publications suggested that America's real foreign policy was being forged from the same epicenter as healthcare reform, energy policy and virtually every other major initiative -- the White House.
Even though such a presidential directive would instantly dispense with the divisive question of whether President Obama's still-secret, long-form birth certificate contains compromising information, it's unlikely we'll get a peak.
The bloom is off the Obama rose. After getting just about everything he wanted out of the Democrat-controlled Congress for the first six months of his Presidency, it doesn't look like Barack Obama is going to get the health care overhaul he was seeking prior to the August recess.
Six months into the Obama administration, it should now be clear to all Americans: Hope and Change came to the White House wrapped in brass knuckles.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whatever her other capacities, demonstrated last week that she is a master at the poetic art of haiku -- the Japanese poem form that encapsulates in three or fewer lines of 17 or fewer syllables a larger thought or image.
On the way home from work on a summer afternoon, I pulled over to do business with a group of young entrepreneurs who had set up their temporary enterprise not far from our house.
Last August, Pastor Rick Warren stumped then-Sen. Barack Obama with a seemingly simple question.
A few minutes into the police encounter that ended with his arrest for disorderly conduct, Henry Louis Gates Jr. reportedly exclaimed, "This is what happens to black men in America!" It would be more accurate to say this is what can happen to anyone who makes the mistake of annoying a cop.
There is perhaps no greater certainty as a parent than the sure knowledge that over the course of your children’s young lives, you will spend hours with them in the waiting room of the pediatrician’s office or an urgent care center or the hospital emergency room.
The Honduran government was protecting democracy and respecting the rule of law when it ousted President Manual Zelaya, the democratically elected leader who has worked since coming into office to dismantle the very democracy that elected him.
Hillary Clinton called North Korea an attention junkie in an interview this week -- a country that most recently loaded missiles onto the back of a ship and cruised around like the Love Boat.
Well, Barack Obama has now passed the seven-month mark of his presidency and we are seeing what we have to endure for the next three years and five months. Already, we can tell that the Barack Obama administration is just one disaster after another.
Back in 2008 conservatives were in a tough spot: we had a candidate that many of us believe is representative of much of what is wrong with the Republican Party -- running against an ultra-left-winger who told America we could trust him, in part, because Joe @$&*^%$ Biden was going to be around to be a voice of reason.
The last moments of President Obama's press conference last week have gotten the most attention, and some of the president's supporters have wondered whether his big-footed interference in the Cambridge professor's melodrama has overshadowed Obama's push for health care reform.
Slavery and racism have been like a soiled garment that America has diligently and at great expense tried to wipe clean. President Obama acknowledged at his news conference last week that America has made "great progress" in the direction of racial reconciliation and he is living proof of that.
Last month, House lawmakers set a new land-speed record by voting for the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade (or cap-and-tax) bill before they’d even seen the final copy. Now it seems President Barack Obama is trying to top that dubious feat.
It is amazing that biggest news story for nearly 10 days has been the arrest of a Harvard professor for disorderly conduct at his own house in Cambridge. Overshadowing the health care debate, national security and every other national concern - the story simply will not go away. It’s got all the elements of a “good television drama,” except there’s no sex or violence.
In May, President Obama touted $17 billion in cuts he had planned for a budget of more than $3 trillion. Obama was quite proud of these cuts.
The federal government balloons. The Tenth Amendment punctures.
