"What can you do to stem the tide of teen pregnancy?" Jacquelyn Wideman asks from New York City, where the rate is at least 12 percent higher than the national average.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | March 05, 2011

We all know that Charlie Sheen is one 911 call from the morgue. Denial is a classic symptom of drug addiction. The same is true of America's addiction to debt.

Robert Morrison | March 05, 2011

President Obama’s statement of personal faith in Jesus as his Lord and Savior at the congressional prayer breakfast in February was all that a believer could ask for. The evident sincerity of Mr. Obama’s testimony stands in stark contrast to his infamous bow before King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia two years ago.

Mark Tapson | March 05, 2011

In 2007, singer Nelly Furtado collected a cool $1 million for crooning at a private function for family members of dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

If the mullahs aren’t overthrown, the New Middle East will be a very dark and dangerous place.

Donald Lambro | March 04, 2011

President Obama is coming under increasing fire for being a passive, reactive commander in chief, who all too often stands on the sidelines instead of entering the arena during the great policy battles of our time.

Michelle Malkin | March 04, 2011

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who is black, used the phrase "my people" in congressional testimony this week. It was an unmistakably color-coded and exclusionary reference intended to deflect criticism of the Obama Justice Department's selective enforcement policies.

Brent Bozell | March 04, 2011

A new ad by the French game manufacturer Ubisoft advertises a new game for the Nintendo Wii suggestively titled "We Dare," describing it as "a sexy, quirky party game."

Jonah Goldberg | March 04, 2011

Fred Phelps, the deranged pastor of the Westboro Baptist Church -- which is more like a family entourage of psychos -- has devised a scheme for getting attention: He desecrates military funerals.

David Limbaugh | March 04, 2011

At what point do environmentalist liberals become accountable for the results of their policies instead of their allegedly good intentions? Why isn't President Obama held accountable?

Mona Charen | March 04, 2011

Andy Ferguson, one of America's most engaging and perspicacious journalists, has not -- as Andre Malraux said of Whittaker Chambers -- returned from the hell of college admissions with empty hands.

Oliver North | March 04, 2011

Ever since civil dissent began in North Africa late last year and spread throughout the Middle East, the O-Team's response has been fraught with indifference and uncertainty.

Pat Buchanan | March 04, 2011

U.S. policy should be to tell Europe, Asia, Africa and the Mideast: Your defense is first and foremost your responsibility. You police your own neighborhood. And if there is something you can't handle, give us a call. We may be able to help.

Suzanne Fields | March 04, 2011

If the teachers unions would use their collective bargaining rights to do good for their students rather than doing well for themselves, they could make a stronger case for themselves.

David Harsanyi | March 04, 2011

Our nation, fractured and beleaguered, can finally embrace a moment of consensus. From the tea party to union activists to undecided moderates, we must demand that Donald Trump run for president.

Linda Chavez | March 04, 2011

Two years into his presidency, the man who promised to restore America's standing in world public opinion has rendered himself personally irrelevant on the world stage.

Matt Towery | March 04, 2011

The media filled the office of Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. Reporters were already buzzing about how crazy the week's worth of press stories had been.

Kyle Olson | March 04, 2011

Suppose you’re a college student who is about to begin searching for a summer job. There’s only one problem: nobody is hiring.

Walter E. Williams | March 03, 2011

With all of the union strife in Wisconsin, Indiana and New Jersey, and indications of more to come, it might be time to shed a bit of light on unions as an economic unit.

Roger Chapin | March 03, 2011

Irreversible winds of change are sweeping across the Middle East and the long repressed Arab Street is at last awakening to the resounding call of freedom and reform.

Cliff May | March 03, 2011

Not long after achieving independence, the United States faced its first foreign threat: pirates off the coast of Africa seizing American merchant ships.

Jeff Jacoby | March 03, 2011

If Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker were getting a dollar for every protester, politician, and pundit accusing him of union-busting, attacking public-sector employees, or waging a war on working people -- to say nothign of those likening him to Hosni Mubarak and Adolf Hitler -- it wouldn't be long before he could personally close his state's $137 million budget shortfall.

Hugh Hewitt | March 03, 2011

Four months ago the nation's voters gave John Boehner and the House GOP he leads a massive mandate to change the fiscal direction of the United States.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | March 03, 2011

My 11-year-old daughter asked me yesterday to explain how Wisconsin's 14 Democratic state senators can leave the state while they are supposed to be working.

Victor Davis Hanson | March 03, 2011

America seems trapped in an exploding Middle East minefield.

Michael Barone | March 03, 2011

When then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich's Republicans and President Clinton failed to reach agreement and the government actually did shut down, "train wreck" was a common term. In today's discussion of a pending shutdown, you won't hear it.

Larry Elder | March 03, 2011

"Racist!" shouted some Columbia University students at an Iraq War vet. Other students reportedly "hissed and booed." Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who spoke at Columbia three years earlier, received better treatment from the audience.

Michael Reagan | March 03, 2011

Uncle Sam is spending a lot of your tax dollars on programs that do the exact same thing as other federal programs, and you are paying the tab, a shocking new report shows.

Debra J. Saunders | March 03, 2011

This week, Charlie Sheen owns network news. No wonder Americans hate the media.

Humberto Fontova | March 03, 2011

This guay was a union protestor in Madison Wisconsin caught on camera saying he wants to vote for Fidel Castro and clone Che Guevara...

Kyle Olson | March 03, 2011

In the ongoing battle between public employees and taxpayers, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has cited WEA Trust, a company that specializes in providing health insurance to school employees, as the number one reason why collective bargaining must be reformed.

Rich Tucker | March 03, 2011

In just about everything, language matters.

Steve Chapman | March 03, 2011

Public broadcasting has been the object of federal help for more than 40 years. It's big enough and old enough to stand on its own.

Robert Knight | March 03, 2011

As one who helped draft the first version of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), I regard Obama’s order to Attorney General Eric Holder to abandon DOMA’s legal defense as lawless, reckless, arrogant and a violation of his oath of office. I think it is an impeachable offense.

Ross Mackenzie | March 03, 2011

A March mixture of comments about items in the news....

Howard Rich | March 03, 2011

A decade ago, when our national debt stood at a “mere” $5.6 trillion, the federal government was already dramatically overpaying its employees to perform all sorts of non-core functions.

Paul Greenberg | March 02, 2011

Leave it to a prof at the University of Arkansas -- specifically, an economist in its Department of Education Reform -- to go to the heart (and guts) of what all the fuss is about in Wisconsin.

Ann Coulter | March 02, 2011

For Democrats, the purpose of government is to generously provide jobs for people who otherwise couldn't be hired -- because their skills, attitude or sense of entitlement are considered undesirable in the private sector. And no, I'm not just talking about Barack Obama.

Tony Blankley | March 02, 2011

Will the people of the United States be content to merely settle down and become a relatively affluent, second-level satellite to a great Chinese colossus?

James E. Shane | March 02, 2011

Invective has replaced fact as the currency of modern politics. As a result, public policy is influenced more by headlines than by data.

Jeff Jacoby | March 02, 2011

The Epic Struggle to Save Soviet Jewry.

Armstrong Williams | March 02, 2011

Some startling revelations have come out of the fracas going on in Wisconsin over Gov. Walker and the GOP-controlled legislature facing off against public sector unions, namely the teachers’ union.

Marybeth Hicks | March 02, 2011

Filed under “Typical Media Bias Against Religion,” the theatrical release last week of the cop drama “The Grace Card” garnered this one-line summary on the movie site Screenit.com: WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

Rich Galen | March 02, 2011

The standoff between Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and the Democrats in the State Senate has been going on for two weeks and may last for weeks or even months longer.

Michelle Malkin | March 02, 2011

If public school teachers spent more time teaching in classrooms and less time community-organizing in political war rooms, maybe taxpayers wouldn't feel as ripped off as they do.

John Stossel | March 02, 2011

Because "The King's Speech," a movie about King George's effort to overcome stuttering, won the Oscar for best picture, reporters have been interviewing me about my stuttering.

Brent Bozell | March 02, 2011

When President Obama's budget came out in February, with the greatest expansion of federal spending in American history, some sycophantic media outlets like The Washington Post ridiculously tried to sell the concept that Obama was pushing "deep cuts."

Jonah Goldberg | March 02, 2011

"Pawlenty's attacks get more pointed," announced a headline in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "He's betting sharper rhetoric will spring him from GOP pack," clarified the subhead.

Michael Medved | March 02, 2011

Some conservative commentators spent their Presidents’ Day holiday ruminating over Barack Obama’s evil intentions, or denouncing the chief executive as an alien interloper and fanatical ideologue perversely determined to damage the Republic. Instead, they might have focused on the history of the John Adams’ White House prayer to develop a more effective context for their criticism.

Rachel Alexander | March 02, 2011

The growing unrest in the Arabic world among Islamic states is leading to concern that the demonstrations are being driven more by a desire for stricter Islamic rule than for democratic reforms.

President Obama's failure to support America's allies in the Middle East and his dithering endorsement of chaos in the region will send oil and gasoline prices skyrocketing, triggering a massive bout of stagflation.

Ben Shapiro | March 02, 2011

During the 2008 campaign, Hillary Clinton suggested that if the emergency phone rang at 3 a.m. in the White House, you wouldn't want President Obama picking it up.

Terry Jeffrey | March 02, 2011

Were it your personal bank account, you would get it -- and change your ways. But it is not your personal bank account, it is the Treasury of the United States.

Austin Bay | March 02, 2011

Libyan rebels on the outskirts of Tripoli foreshadow the demise of Col. Moammar Gadhafi's four decades of dictatorship.

Paul Greenberg | March 02, 2011

There are few better ways to go back in time and ever deeper into the South, which are much the same thing, than to drive through the Delta down to New Orleans Land of Dreams.

Donald Lambro | March 02, 2011

No doubt by now you've heard the story on the nightly news that the Obama economy grew at a weaker pace in the fourth quarter than was previously expected.

Jacob Sullum | March 02, 2011

Like many pot smokers who became politicians, Daniels -- a potential contender for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination -- seems to have two standards of justice: one for him and one for anyone else who does what he did.

Ed Feulner | March 02, 2011

In fiscal year 2010, according to a recent report from The Heritage Foundation, the Obama administration adopted regulations that will cost more than $26.5 billion a year.

Kyle Olson | March 02, 2011

The fount of business knowledge that is Forbes.com ran a bit dry this weekend when it published a blog by one Rick Ungar in which he made the case that taxpayers don’t actually fund public employee pensions in Wisconsin. Just let that marinate for a moment.

Brad O'Leary | March 01, 2011

Since the tragedy in Tucson, Arizona on January 8, Americans’ desire for their Second Amendment rights show no signs of weakening.

Humberto Fontova | March 01, 2011

A tribal dictatorship on Gadaffi’s model is vastly different from a Stalinist one on the Castro model. Gadaffi’s goons-for-pay are certainly murdering people in Libya—but it appears a haphazard and tardy affair.

Bill Murchison | March 01, 2011

The more it changes, the more it's the same, hmmm? In this present instance, meaning our country's seemingly fresh-scented wrangle over union power.

Debra J. Saunders | March 01, 2011

I am reluctant to join the chorus of scolds who chide Republicans for opposing Gov. Jerry Brown's proposal to put a tax-increase extension on a special election ballot in June.

Thomas Sowell | March 01, 2011

Those who see hope in the Middle East uprisings seem to assume that they will lead in the direction of freedom or democracy.

Byron York | March 01, 2011

A lot of Republicans on Capitol Hill are terrified of a government shutdown. Look at what happened in 1995, they say, when Newt Gingrich forced a showdown with Bill Clinton and got his clock cleaned. It was a disaster the party can't afford to repeat.

Chuck Norris | March 01, 2011

Parents deserve educational choices. Want to better U.S. public education? Feed the competition!

John Hawkins | March 01, 2011

We human beings tend to forget how far we've come as a species in a relatively short period of time.

David Limbaugh | March 01, 2011

How much longer can the Democratic Party, the mainstream media and other leftists successfully maintain the ruse that intolerance, hatred and the propensity for violence mainly come from the right in this country?

Mona Charen | March 01, 2011

round Washington, D.C., if you mention Iowa, the first thing that will pop into most people's minds is "caucuses." But in Iowa, if you asked a local about the matchups, he'd most likely assume you were talking about wrestling.

Cal Thomas | March 01, 2011

President Obama has said his view of same-sex "marriage" is "evolving." Apparently he thinks that the law should be based on a kind of Darwinian jurisprudence which allows it to "evolve" and become whatever the ruling politicians at a given moment say it is (or isn't).

Dennis Prager | March 01, 2011

From the moment the Tahrir Square demonstrations against Hosni Mubarak began, optimism has dominated American reporting and commentary on what is being called the Egyptian revolution.

Caroline Glick | March 01, 2011

It was a stunning moment of moral clarity. As the South Vietnamese refugees clambered onto rickety boats in the South China Sea to escape the victorious Communists, the American Left that orchestrated the US defeat through a sustained campaign of propaganda and fake calls for peace stood silent.

Pat Buchanan | March 01, 2011

The anti-democratic methods President Obama's union allies are using in Wisconsin testify to the crucial character of the battle being fought.

Phyllis Schlafly | March 01, 2011

Republican members of the House, goaded on by tea partiers, have made a good start in fulfilling their promise to cut $100 billion out of current spending of taxpayers' money. The House approved 66 amendments, most on roll-call votes, to H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act for FY 2011.

Rebecca Hagelin | March 01, 2011

A person’s worldview shows itself in “unguarded moments,” and affects our crucial life-changing decisions as well. Is your worldview based on God and His truths?

Kyle Olson | March 01, 2011

Many parents and taxpayers feel the problem is overwhelming for one person and there is nothing they can do. There are several things individuals can do to make a difference.

Romina Boccia | March 01, 2011

When CBS reporter Lara Logan was assaulted by a group of men while reporting on the ground in Egypt, a group of Egyptian women reportedly helped save her from the attackers. Women of the West need to return that favor and help raise awareness of the continuing hardships that women face globally, but especially in the Middle East and Africa.

Herb London | March 01, 2011

The great Russian social philosopher Pitirim Sorokin argued that when societies reach a sensate stage of historical evolution, it is inevitable that ideational impulses will percolate to the center of culture. This cyclical interpretation of history is driven by forces in the stream of history, a kind of quasi Marxian belief in historical inevitability.

Michael Gerson | February 28, 2011

It is the conservative critique of the freedom agenda that democratic transformations are hopeless or dangerous in societies lacking democratic cultures. The people of Iraq, said George F. Will, are "just three people away from democratic success.

Paul Greenberg | February 28, 2011

That most Southern of phrases, "a sense of place," came up at a gathering the other evening. It elicited only a quizzical expression from one of the guests, who seemed to think it referred to her neighborhood. Of course she had a sense of place. Why, she'd lived there for eight years. And before that? A succession of places, all of which she left vague.

Kyle Olson | February 28, 2011

As government employee unions continue to rally across the country in support of the Wisconsin protesters, they are becoming completely unhinged. (Being surrounded by hygienically-challenged individuals who continuously shout mind-numbing slogans will do that.)

Lee Habeeb | February 28, 2011

They were marching in Madison. And they’ll be on a street in a state capitol near you in the coming weeks and months. The teachers’ unions are on the ropes, and they know it.

Elisabeth Meinecke | February 28, 2011

The third time was the charm for Indiana Rep. Mike Pence's legislation to defund Planned Parenthood, which passed the House this February and now goes to the Senate as part of a complicated continuing resolution discussion.

Rich Galen | February 28, 2011

Why does February only have 28 days - not just one, but two or three fewer than all of its monthly cousins?

Michael Barone | February 28, 2011

It's a question that puzzles most liberals and bothers some conservatives. Why are so many modest-income white voters rejecting the Obama Democrats' policies of economic redistribution and embracing the small-government policies of the tea party movement?

Star Parker | February 28, 2011

Let’s be clear about the implications of the upcoming budget showdown between Democrats and Republicans over the Republican proposal to cut $61 billion in federal spending for what remains of this fiscal year.

Mike Adams | February 28, 2011

Yesterday, I was sitting in a department meeting for ninety minutes listening to a bunch of liberals whine and argue about things of little or no consequence. But, suddenly, in the middle of the meeting, something happened that has never happened in my eighteen years in the department. That’s right - a liberal came up with a good idea!

Lurita Doan | February 28, 2011

Fearmongering is a great diversionary tactic for Democrats who do not want to be held accountable for out-of-control government spending.

Terry Paulson | February 28, 2011

CA Governor Jerry Brown is pushing for serious budget cuts and a tax extension plan, but Republicans are blocking his efforts to bring his tax plan to a June vote. They’ve seen what happens to Republican politicians who vote to raise taxes!

Bruce Bialosky | February 28, 2011

I have now read over 100 articles on the Federal budget, and what has become abundantly clear is that President Obama and his Democrat colleagues have no desire to reduce even a single expenditure.

Mike Needham | February 28, 2011

Great leaders rise to the occasion, and just five days ahead of a government shutdown, we know all we need to know about President Obama and Harry Reid’s Senate: They are fundamentally unserious about reining in spending.

Paul Driessen | February 28, 2011

America is running out of natural gas. Prices will soar, making imported liquefied natural gas (LNG) and T Boone Pickens' wind farm plan practical, affordable and inevitable. That was then.

Frank Gaffney | February 28, 2011

Last summer, a Chinese telecommunications giant founded by a former People’s Liberation Army (PLA) engineer was rebuffed in its effort to sell vast quantities of equipment to Sprint Nextel - an American company that provides communication services to the U.S. Defense Department and other government agencies.

Jeff Stier | February 28, 2011

In a culture fascinated with celebrities, we should remember that those we gawk at may be very talented and are often even brilliant -- at what they do. But just like we probably shouldn't watch most scientists act, sing, or worse yet, model, let's keep the celebrities in their proper places too.

Tina Korbe | February 28, 2011

Right now, the back seat of my car is more than a little crowded. In addition to the usual litter that lingers in my cup holders and seatback pockets, a bright red box spans the width of the entire back seat. In it: My artificial Christmas tree. That’s OK with me -- I’ll find a place to store it eventually.

Janice Shaw Crouse | February 28, 2011

The wording of Obama's surprise DOMA reversal announcement suggests that the decision is another instance of this president’s politicizing the administration of justice.

Salena Zito | February 27, 2011

WASHINGTON – The only sound visitors hear on the Senate side of the U.S. Capitol on an early Sunday morning is the click of heels on the marble floor, echoing off the 20-foot ceiling.

Austin Hill | February 27, 2011

"Big government" is failing around the globe, from Sacramento to Saudi Arabia.

Doug Giles | February 27, 2011

How do you think the media would report a story if a radical Christian cult, such as Westboro Baptist Church, had a group of their idiots patrolling the Florida Keys with AK-47s in Go-Fast boats?

Debra J. Saunders | February 27, 2011

In 2008, 56 percent of Wisconsin voters supported Barack Obama for president. In 2009, Wisconsin's Democratic governor and Democratic Legislature passed legislation that raised taxes and fees by about $1.2 billion over three years.

Debra J. Saunders | February 27, 2011

How Wisconsin has gone from blue to red...

Kevin McCullough | February 27, 2011

When the delinquent state democrats who had illegally abandoned their duties as representatives of the good people of Wisconsin finally showed up for work, Gov. Scott Walker will have won a decisive victory against the public sector unions in his state.

Steve Chapman | February 27, 2011

President Barack Obama has been denounced by Republicans for asserting federal power at the expense of state sovereignty. But last week, he was denounced by Republicans for ... not asserting federal power at the expense of state sovereignty.

Ken Connor | February 27, 2011

Many times, the problems in life that seem most complex are quite the opposite: They are simple issues that have been complicated and muddled by factors such as emotion, obstinacy, greed, and dishonesty. Such is often the case with budgets.

Paul Jacob | February 27, 2011

Unsustainable compensation rates, all explainable by simple economics. But it's not "market faiure," it is a classic case of government failure.
