Steve Chapman | May 01, 2011

On Oct. 22, 1844, thousands of followers of American evangelist William Miller woke up expecting Jesus Christ to make his triumphant return that day, as they had been told.

Doug Giles | April 30, 2011

My dad passed away this past week. He was a great father, true friend, WWII vet, patriot and Christian. He will be deeply missed.

Kyle Olson | April 30, 2011

We continue to hear the rhetoric from teachers unions and others in the education establishment that we need to “invest” more in America’s public schools.

Elisabeth Meinecke | April 30, 2011

At a recent stop by the Small Business Administration's Jobs Act tour in Washington, D.C., small business owners seemed divided about the effects federal policy is having on their companies.

John Ransom | April 30, 2011

Things have gotten so complicated for the front men of U.S policy that they are tripping over their own capes.

Kathryn Lopez | April 30, 2011

Thank goodness for the royal wedding! It took U.S. media attention off Donald Trump for a few minutes.

Paul Driessen | April 30, 2011

We are constantly bombarded with information – much of it inaccurate, misleading, even deliberately so.

Brian Birdnow | April 30, 2011

The most recent polls show President Obama leading all of his potential GOP opponents and, in fact easily defeating most of them in hypothetical 2012 elections. The common reaction, even among seasoned commentators and politicos at this point is to shrug ones shoulders and say: “Who Cares?”

Terry Savage | April 30, 2011

Judging by the number of words it took the Fed chairman to get his message across in his first live press conference after a Fed meeting, it's no wonder some are a little confused.

Michelle Singletary | April 30, 2011

The fact is, many class-action settlements still stink. What's fair about requiring consumers to spend more money to get compensation? If you've ever received one of these settlement offers, you know the answer.

Howard Rich | April 30, 2011

The defensive struggle that’s currently being waged by America’s public sector unions has the potential to usher in a renaissance of parental choice in our nation – assuming supporters of academic freedom are willing to seize this opportunity and resist the urge to settle for half-measures.

Fri, Apr 29, 2011

Caroline Glick | April 29, 2011

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s response to the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority’s peace deal with Hamas would be funny if it weren’t tragic. Immediately after the news broke of the deal Netanyahu announced, “The PA must choose either peace with Israel or peace with Hamas. There is no possibility for peace with both.”

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | April 29, 2011

Mao taught his follower, "Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed." Obama practices his politics as the master taught.

Rich Galen | April 29, 2011

I have given a great deal of thought to the whole birth certificate thing. Like you, I wondered why, if it had been available all this time, Obama didn't just ask for it two years ago and put this nonsense to bed.

Ken Connor | April 29, 2011

Let's not kid ourselves: The policy train in American government has largely been driven by powerful special interests. These enterprises invest enormous amounts of time and money in political campaigns in order to ensure that their agenda is advanced on Capitol Hill.

Kyle Olson | April 29, 2011

Public schools continue to be a battleground in the culture war, as the education establishment – composed primarily of leftists bent on political correctness – gains more ground.

Michelle Malkin | April 29, 2011

On May 1, left-wing vigilantes will target companies across the country that have committed a mortal sin: sending donations to GOP Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Jonah Goldberg | April 29, 2011

Of course you've heard some version of this tale before. Winston Churchill says to a woman at a party, "Madam, would you sleep with me for 5 million pounds?"

Mona Charen | April 29, 2011

By the time you read this, Prince William and his bride, Catherine Middleton (who, depending upon the distribution of titles, may henceforth be known officially by the odd formulation "Her Royal Highness Princess William of Wales"), will have exchanged vows.

Ken Blackwell | April 29, 2011

Hillary Clinton's famous campaign ad strongly suggested that Barack Obama was not prepared to take the emergency phone call at that critical hour.

Oliver North | April 29, 2011

According to the experts, this ought to be "Obama Country." In the 2008 presidential election, the Obama "Hope and Change" machine scored big in western Pennsylvania, carrying the region with nearly 58 percent of the vote.

Pat Buchanan | April 29, 2011

New tone? It didn't take long for the "Tuscon Truce" to collapse!

Diana West | April 29, 2011

The fact is, these murders are not "just one of those things" -- the unfortunate outcome of a "disagreement," or even "financial pressures" as mentioned, straight-faced, in early reports.

John Ransom | April 29, 2011

Let's just say that I'm suspicious. There are a number of problems with this projection as the "End of America." In actual dollars the U.S. will still have a substantial advantage in GDP in 2016 according to the IMF.

Donald Lambro | April 29, 2011

Donald Trump has been saying things about himself and others lately that are untrue, suggesting that he has a tendency to make up his own reality as he goes along.

Kyle Olson | April 29, 2011

Public schools continue to be a battleground in the culture war, as the education establishment – composed primarily of leftists bent on political correctness – gains more ground.

Larry Kudlow | April 29, 2011

Rising inflation is coexisting with high, near-9 percent unemployment. Keynesians argue this can’t happen. They're wrong.

Michael Youssef | April 29, 2011

Over the years, I've returned many times to Egypt, the land of my birth. That land has changed dramatically since my boyhood. In recent years, this formerly secular and religiously tolerant nation has become a hotbed of Islamic extremism.

Brent Bozell | April 29, 2011

America can display a strange sexist standard on child sexual abuse.

Suzanne Fields | April 29, 2011

Angela Merkel is losing her edge. Her party reacts to setbacks in local elections and is sidetracked by France's assertion of leadership toward the Arab Spring. But culturally and intellectually, Berlin is still the European capital pushing the envelope. Berlin drives the engine for thinking and rethinking Germany's past.

Linda Chavez | April 29, 2011

Among the challenges facing the Democrats in the 2012 election is the prospect that President Barack Obama will not be able to re-energize his base -- which included record numbers of Hispanic voters in 2008.

Thu, Apr 28, 2011

Ed Feulner | April 28, 2011

“Raise our taxes!” Can you imagine chanting such a slogan at a public rally? Neither could most Americans. There is one notable exception, however: government-union activists.

Cliff May | April 28, 2011

I was north of Kandahar, flying in a helicopter with an American general who was telling me more than I could absorb about rural irrigation systems. I asked if he had ever imagined, back when he was at West Point, that he’d become so expert in agricultural development?

Bay Buchanan | April 28, 2011

One year after the passage of SB 1070, it is clear that the momentum and the people are still with Arizona. While most political observers gloated that they did not expect another state to pass the bill just a few months ago, Arizona modeled legislation passed the Georgia and Alabama legislature with the two governors of the two states indicating they will sign the legislation.

Paul Greenberg | April 28, 2011

It's no secret that the messianic hopes Barack Obama once inspired have steadily given way to disillusion, and an ever-deepening sense of unease about the direction the country is heading.

Rich Tucker | April 28, 2011

Children learn a lot in school. Maybe more than we intend to teach them. CNN recently reported: “One Chicago public school is telling students they can either eat cafeteria food or ‘go hungry.’” No homemade lunches will be allowed without a medical excuse.

John Ransom | April 28, 2011

Ben Bernanke all but admitted that QE2 has been a failure if we judge it from the Fed’s mandate to fight inflation and provide full employment. The last time I looked inflation was out of control and unemployment wasn’t much better.

Victor Davis Hanson | April 28, 2011

Are high gas prices a good thing? That is not as dumb a question as it sounds.

Michael Barone | April 28, 2011

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour's abrupt withdrawal from the race for the Republican presidential nomination -- after hiring a topnotch New Hampshire campaign manager and planning to fly around the country next week -- has naturally inspired a lot of punditry on the Republican presidential race.

Larry Elder | April 28, 2011

A Republican official, this time a member of the Orange County, Calif., GOP central committee, stands accused of -- racism!

Elisabeth Meinecke | April 28, 2011

Ending oil and gas subsidies might do very little to affect gas prices at the pump even though the Obama Administration has demagogued on the issue.

Cal Thomas | April 28, 2011

Count me among the abstainers. I won't be watching over-the-top media coverage of Friday's wedding between Prince William and the "commoner" Kate Middleton.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | April 28, 2011

Every society produces its own cultural conceits," Jack Weatherford wrote in "The Secret History of the Mongol Queens," "a set of lies and delusions about itself that thrives in the face of all contrary evidence."

Debra J. Saunders | April 28, 2011

Behold the damage Donald Trump hath wrought. Every credible fact check has established that Barack Obama was born in this country. Yet on Wednesday, a reality TV show ringmaster forced the president of the United States to prove it.

Larry Kudlow | April 28, 2011

Mr. Bernanke had no defense of the sinking dollar, or the inflation it brings, or the drop in middle-class living standards it causes.

Ross Mackenzie | April 28, 2011

With key institutions grown effete, standards of right and wrong descend into a moral miasma of relativistic goo.

Meredith Turney | April 28, 2011

As a result of technology and new media, the world is in the midst of monumental, accelerated change. Like the Industrial Revolution that preceded it, the Information Age has revolutionized not just affluent societies, but the entire world.

Steve Chapman | April 28, 2011

It's often been said of Barack Obama that his policies are "data driven" -- meaning that whatever his ideological inclinations, he pays attention to dispassionate analysis of real-world evidence.

Emmett Tyrrell | April 28, 2011

While inspecting the body politic, one encounters one clear sign that liberalism is dead. It is the condition of our political discourse. Polite commentators note that the dialogue is "rancorous."

Wed, Apr 27, 2011

Ann Coulter | April 27, 2011

Democrats don't resent "the rich" on behalf of the poor. They resent the rich on behalf of the government.

Christopher Prandoni | April 27, 2011

Unwilling to reign in Washington’s overspending problem, Democrats and their allies on the Left are stuck championing tax increases. Raising the corporate income tax rate—already the highest in the world—or increasing the personal income rate is untenable, leaving Democrats no choice except to try and repeal tax credits and deductions.

Humberto Fontova | April 27, 2011

The New Black Panther Party threatened Philadelphia voters with billy clubs and Eric Holder’s justice department couldn’t be bothered. CAIR was accused of fundraising for Hamas, and Eric Holder shrugged.

Paul Greenberg | April 27, 2011

The elephant in the room is getting harder and harder to ignore. It's not just bigger than ever, but threatens to go on a rampage that could lay waste everything around it. This particular elephant has a name: the national debt.

Donald Lambro | April 27, 2011

Reports coming in from congressional town hall meetings during the Easter recess say that Republican lawmakers were peppered with angry questions about cutting Medicare.

Michael Reagan | April 27, 2011

Halfway through his term in office, President Barack Obama faces a crisis that could most probably doom his chances of being re-elected -- he's running out of gas.

Jacob Sullum | April 27, 2011

Last week, unveiling a plan to curtail "diversion" of opioid painkillers, Obama administration officials said they aim to "strike a balance between our desire to minimize abuse of prescription drugs and the need to ensure access for their legitimate use." This balance will never be achieved because the two goals are fundamentally irreconcilable.

Rachel Alexander | April 27, 2011

Almost no one is talking about the most serious financial catastrophe taking place in the U.S. today. Instead everyone is focused on reigning in Congressional spending, particularly in areas like entitlements and Obamacare.

Hugh Hewitt | April 27, 2011

On my radio show Tuesday I launched The Obama Project --the attempt to list in succinct fashion the many reasons why President Obama should be defeated in November 2012.

Thomas Sowell | April 27, 2011

Walter Williams fans are in for a treat-- and people who are not Walter Williams fans are in for a shock-- when they read his latest book, "Race and Economics."

Michelle Malkin | April 27, 2011

Confirmed: "Drain the swamp" is Washington-speak for "Let it fester." While House ethics watchdogs dither, it's shady business as usual for ethics scandal-plagued Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.

Walter E. Williams | April 27, 2011

Smugglers are heroes of sorts. The essence of what a smuggler offers is: "Government tyrants want to either prevent or interfere with peaceable voluntary exchange among individuals. I can reduce the impact of that interference."

Brent Bozell | April 27, 2011

In the Bush years, poll results that showed the American people losing confidence in their president were featured routinely on the front page of major newspapers like The Washington Post.

Jonah Goldberg | April 27, 2011

"What the heck went wrong?" That, apparently, is the question roiling the environmental community as it realizes that the fight against climate change has fizzled.

Ben Shapiro | April 27, 2011

On April 22, President Obama announced the celebration of the 41st Earth Day. Unappeased, the Earth immediately spawned a tornado that ripped away half of the St. Louis airport, an earthquake in Indonesia, and a rainstorm that kept Michelle Obama from making her scheduled Earth Day event.

Terry Jeffrey | April 27, 2011

On Feb. 12, 2010, President Barack Obama signed a law increasing the legal limit on the national debt from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion. hat gave the U.S. Treasury the legal authority to go out and borrow an additional $1.9 trillion.

David Harsanyi | April 27, 2011

It's about time the administration began taking on the ogres of the left's imagination seriously. Attorney General Eric Holder has formed the "Oil and Gas Price Fraud Working Group to Focus on Energy Markets" to expose the speculators, the gougers and those fat cat millionaires.

John Ransom | April 27, 2011

The millionaire poster boy of the tax-the-rich crowd, who amazed everyone with the revelation that rich people don’t pay their fair share by his talking about his own example, has released his tax returns online with an accompanying asterisk because the truth is a lot less dramatic than his claims.

Austin Bay | April 27, 2011

For almost seven weeks, Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi's loyalists and mercenary soldiers have besieged the city of Misrata.

Rich Galen | April 27, 2011

Republicans, including occasionally lapsed Republicans like me, have been whipping President Obama’s latest approval-disapproval numbers around to each other leading to knowing nods about how difficult Obama’s re-election is likely to be.

Kyle Olson | April 27, 2011

One of the things I’ve always liked about charter schools is they aren’t bound by onerous labor agreements that hamper innovation. Traditional public schools get boxed in with union contracts that literally stipulate when a teacher arrives in the morning and when he or she must depart.

Marybeth Hicks | April 27, 2011

It’s a minor issue, really, but when you think about it, the decay of a nation happens a little at a time.

Janice Shaw Crouse | April 27, 2011

It’s time for us to get “out front” by unapologetically talking about the good things that our nation does to combat the lies of despotic bullies.

Larry Kudlow | April 27, 2011

While president Obama is out there ragging on oil companies to remove so-called tax subsidies, it’s odd that he doesn’t mention how much in taxes the energy firms actually pay to Uncle Sam.

John Stossel | April 27, 2011

The U.S. government has "helped" no group more than it has "helped" the American Indians. It stuns me when President Obama appears before Indian groups and says things like, "Few have been ignored by Washington for as long as Native Americans."

Tony Blankley | April 27, 2011

Last weekend, David Ignatius in his Washington Post column made a vital contribution to the debt and deficit debate: "Take the deficit pain now. It's a truth of economics and life that if you have bad news coming, take the hit early and get it behind you. You can't start building until the debris is out of the way."

Matt Towery | April 27, 2011

Any major candidate could win the GOP nomination, if -- and it's a big if -- they follow the right strategy.

Tue, Apr 26, 2011

Orrin Hatch | April 26, 2011

As part of the debate over the final Fiscal Year 2011 continuing resolution, members of Congress faced a choice — whether to eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, or to continue sending taxpayer dollars to this group.

Gregory Conko | April 26, 2011

President Obama has been taking shots at the pharmaceutical industry since announcing his deficit reduction plan in a speech last Wednesday (April 13).

Romina Boccia | April 26, 2011

With gas prices unbearably high and driving season approaching, Americans are easy prey for those who promise to ease their pains at the pump. This makes it high season for politicians and their cronies seeking taxpayer-financed support of alternative fuels.

Armstrong Williams | April 26, 2011

In the midst of a season that has provided riveting political theater – the budget extension impasse and the impending battle over raising the debt ceiling – a bright ideological line has emerged between the two major political parties. It is not about whether we must reduce our debt (both sides ostensibly agree that we must), but about where those cuts should come from.

John Hawkins | April 26, 2011

The sad truth of the matter is that most Americans don't pay much attention to politics and those that do often just parrot doctrine instead of investigating issues with an open mind.

Thomas Sowell | April 26, 2011

The boomlet for Donald Trump as a Republican nominee for President of the United States ought to be a wake-up call for Republican candidates and Republican Party leaders alike.

Byron York | April 26, 2011

You want to get attention on Capitol Hill? Threaten to lower the U.S. government credit rating. When Standard & Poor's lowered its outlook for the United States from "stable" to "negative" on April 18, the news shot through congressional offices. An already hot fight over raising the national debt got even hotter.

Chuck Norris | April 26, 2011

While all eyes this week are on London's royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton, my eyes are on an opening statement from the U.K.'s Daily Mail Reporter: "Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing (Shariah) on parts of Britain."

John C. Goodman | April 26, 2011

Both parties are being disingenuous about Medicare reform. So let me be the first to open Pandora's box and reveal three unpleasant truths.

Debra J. Saunders | April 26, 2011

It wasn't that long ago when Democratic members of Congress were warning about conservative colleagues trying to insert their religion into politics by trying to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. For issues concerning family planning, the left generally agrees that it is wrong to impose religion on politics.

John Ransom | April 26, 2011

When I heard that former president Jimmy Carter was putting together a group he called the “Elders” with former Irish President Mary Robinson, I thought “Oh good. Folk music. Maybe Carter finally found something productive to do with his time.”

Ken Klukowski | April 26, 2011

A major law firm has caved to pressure from militant homosexual activists, and one of America’s top Supreme Court lawyers resigned from that firm rather than abandon principle. That lawyer is former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement, and this is a story that everyone who values the rule of law needs to understand.

David Limbaugh | April 26, 2011

The governing class in Washington has no excuse for not having addressed our spending issues and formulating a comprehensive federal debt retirement plan before we approached another debt ceiling threshold.

Mona Charen | April 26, 2011

The Obama foreign policy is a mess. In the first 12 months of his term -- let's call it the contra-Bush era -- the president's chief aim seemed to be to undo, to the degree possible, what his predecessor had done.

Dennis Prager | April 26, 2011

In the contemporary world, where left-wing attitudes are regarded as normative, it is a given that capitalism, with its free market and profit motive, emanates from and creates selfishness, while socialism, the welfare state and the "social compact," as it is increasingly referred to, emanate from and produce selflessness.

Pat Buchanan | April 26, 2011

One month before the invasion of Iraq, Riah Abu el-Assal, a Palestinian and the Anglican bishop of Jerusalem at the time, warned Tony Blair, "You will be responsible for emptying Iraq, the homeland of Abraham, of Christians."

Phyllis Schlafly | April 26, 2011

The biggest issue for many new members of Congress and tea partiers is trying to hold the federal government within its constitutional limits. Unfortunately, the House now seems poised to pass a law in direct violation of the Constitution.

Bill Murchison | April 26, 2011

I haven't investigated, but I'm sure of it. A pollster in ancient Babylonia was sampling the citizenry on a proposal to raise money by taxing the vineyards and flesh pots of the obscenely rich. I don't know a word of ancient Babylonian, but can we doubt the response went something like, "You bet! Go for it! Get those miserable shekel-grubbing sons of camels!"?

Mon, Apr 25, 2011

Michael Gerson | April 25, 2011

An administration that lacks a consistent foreign policy philosophy has nevertheless established a predictable foreign policy pattern.

Matt Barber | April 25, 2011

What is the Tea Party? Who is the Tea Party? Big media types and the larger left have their demagogic spin: Tea Partyers are racist, backwoods, anti-government dunderheads with a predisposition toward domestic terrorism. In a word, they're "extremists."

Robert Knight | April 25, 2011

With spring in the air, all but the truly soul-dead feel the pull of not only natural but spiritual renewal.

Jeff Jacoby | April 25, 2011

Underwhelmed by the way the 2012 presidential contest is shaping up? With more than 18 months remaining before Election Day, sensible Americans have better things to dwell on than the next race for the White House. But if you are contemplating the upcoming electoral marathon, "underwhelmed" probably overstates your level of enthusiasm.

Mike Needham | April 25, 2011

There’s a lot of talk around the country – especially among conservatives – about who will be the savior of the Republican Party as the presidential candidate in 2012. All of that talk is premature.

Lee Habeeb | April 25, 2011

Gas prices have spiked 37% since October of last year, according to AAA, and in some states, average prices have passed the $4 per gallon. That spike hits the constituents that President Obama purports to care about the most - our most vulnerable Americans.

Rich Galen | April 25, 2011

Gasoline prices are continuing to rise and it's all Obama's fault. Ok, that was just to get your attention, but let's look at the numbers.

Michael Barone | April 25, 2011

The defined benefit is dying. Barack Obama is struggling to keep it alive, but it's apparent that it's something that even as bounteously rich a society as ours can't afford.

Star Parker | April 25, 2011

At this time when Christians and Jews celebrate Easter and Passover, a near record number of Americans feel religion is losing its influence on American life.

Mike Adams | April 25, 2011

When I was a little boy I knew I was different than most of the other little boys.

Katie Kieffer | April 25, 2011

Earth to Washington: The free market offers practical solutions for "going green."

Lurita Doan | April 25, 2011

As Obama travels about the country, speaking of the need for “shared sacrifice” and the need to increase taxes, he doesn’t say a word about the tsunami of new Obama regulations.

Terry Paulson | April 25, 2011

As Jews celebrated Passover and their exodus from Egypt, Christians around the world took part in Holy Week, celebrating their Savior’s path to the cross and Christ’s resurrection on Easter. In both remembrances, believers were reminded of the power of faith in sustaining optimism and hope. Such celebrations are important, but when faith moves beyond rituals to impact one’s life, it makes a difference.

Bruce Bialosky | April 25, 2011

A few years back I had a conversation with an exchange student from Colombia who was working as a busboy to earn some spending money. He spoke English fluently – an aberration in Los Angeles – and I asked him what he thought was the most surprising thing about America. He said “How hard everyone works.”

John Ransom | April 25, 2011

We need a fiscal policy that we learned during the 30 years from the 1960s to 1990, when our economy only did well as we restrained government spending to an amount affordable by our GDP.

Sun, Apr 24, 2011

Austin Hill | April 24, 2011

What do you call it when a group of liberal activists in San Francisco pay $76,000.00 to attend an exclusive fund raiser with President Obama, and then disrupt his speech in front of his private audience with a protest song?

Salena Zito | April 24, 2011

The Allegheny region and its people have retained distinct characteristics. It was defined early on by its distance from Philadelphia, and it became a large settlement of Scots-Irish with their individualist way of life.

Michael Youssef | April 24, 2011

During the Egyptian uprising, shortly before Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was forced from office, I was a guest on CNN Newsroom with anchor Don Lemmon. As the Egyptian government was collapsing, I argued that the Western media were missing the real story. Western journalists were praising and celebrating the Arab world uprisings as a popular demand for democracy and freedom.

David Stokes | April 24, 2011

There are moments in time and space when transitory issues fade in significance as things that seem to matter so much are trumped by what really matters most.

Debra J. Saunders | April 24, 2011

The first tip-off that Greg Mortenson's memoir "Three Cups of Tea" has some credibility issues comes in the book's introduction. Co-author David Oliver Relin writes that as Mortenson is flying over Pakistan, the helicopter pilot marvels to Mortenson, "I've been flying in northern Pakistan for 40 years. How is it you know the terrain better than me?"

John Ransom | April 24, 2011

This week I've picked a broad array of topics from the Twitterverse of followers of @bamransom, including life, foreign policy, Sen. Ensign and Nevada, the debt "bomb" and the Department of Energy.

Kevin McCullough | April 24, 2011

The President Barack Obama has been proven a hypocrite.

Kyle Olson | April 24, 2011

In promotion of his excellent book, "Righteous Indignation," Andrew Breitbart appeared on MSNBC with host Martin Bashir.

Alan Sears | April 24, 2011

It’s hard to understand what, exactly, public university officials across the country have against the Christians on their campus.

Ken Connor | April 24, 2011

With Washington's budget showdown over – for now, at least – attention has shifted to the next major government funding crisis on the horizon. With a mere $80 billion between the government and default, lawmakers, lobbyists, and Obama officials are scrambling to make the case for an extended line of credit.

Mark Baisley | April 24, 2011

For years, I have puzzled over the mystery of the liberal mindset. I have concluded that it makes no sense to ascribe the capacity of deductive reasoning to an adult American leftist.

Frank Turek | April 24, 2011

‘If God stopped all evil, he might start with you . . . and me because we both do evil every day.’ To end evil on earth God would have to take away our free will. But if he takes away our free will, he takes away our ability to love as well.

Paul Jacob | April 24, 2011

A perennial panic over fuel prices throws caution, reason, and humility out the window.

Steve Chapman | April 24, 2011

Is it too early to declare our intervention in Libya a failure? More than a month after we started bombing, the insurgency has suffered a string of defeats.
