In the late 1960s through the 1970s, there was a panic that the Earths population, if not controlled, would lead to mass food shortages, water shortages, death, wars and the end of civilization as it existed. But much like the global cooling movement during the same period, it was proven to be horribly, horribly wrong.

When it comes to lifes guarantees, theres death, taxes, death taxes, the tides, the Chicago Cubs not winning a World Series, and the race card being played by Democrats as an election approaches.

Monica Lewinsky re-entered public life this week. Actually, this is the first time she volunteered to enter the spotlight. Her first foray was involuntary and embarrassing. It also was her own fault. Well, hers and President Clintons

The Ebola outbreak has been a disaster in politics, but a boom for capitalism. Weird how that works, but it is how many things work.

Media people love to appoint people they like to positions of influence. Just look at Jon Stewart.

Tomorrow used to be called Columbus Day, but no more. Thanks to Seattle, its now Indigenous Peoples Day! Sound stupid? Thats only because it is.

Youve probably seen Bongino on cable news or heard him on various radio shows around the country; hes the medias go-to expert on security issues. And I can assure you he is the real deal on this.

The world is not yet in panic mode over the latest outbreak, but its close. Is it justified?

There is a ghost in the White House, a spirit disconnected from this world, whisking from room to room, past staff, uninterested in their conversations. Unfortunately for us, the ghost is the president of the United States.

Christianity is an easy target for progressives; it has a violent past and a central boogeyman the Vatican.

Ive never been one for spiritteam or school. I went to Wayne State University in Detroit, and I had to Google what the team nickname was. It used to be the Tartars, not just a sauce but an ancient tribe. But it apparently was changed in 1999 to Warriors.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but thats becoming less and less likely.

We hear where she goes. We hear what she wears. We hear how much she makes. But what we dont ever seem to hear about Hillary Clinton is what she would do as president. Her every move is reported, every speech covered as if it were a decree brought down from a mountaintop. But what does she want to do?

Remember the Terminator movies and the evil electronic overlords of Skynet the computer system that became self-aware and launched the war against humans? We arent thereyet. But we are fast approaching the point where people simply arent necessary to conduct a significant amount of business and life.

Thirteen years ago today the United States was attacked. More than 3,000 people lost their lives because a radical group of monsters saw a giant sleeping and took advantage of it. It could easily happen again.

News broke this week that Luke Russert, son of the late Tim Russert, will be a regular part of the revamped Meet The Press starting today. Hes 29, has worked for NBC News since graduating college, andthats about it. His last name is the only qualification he possesses for joining the team of the longest running show on television. If this, and the other personnel decisions that have been announced, is NBCs plan to save the once-great show, Meet The Press is screwed.

In the era of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., etc., etc., theres barely a moment people arent documenting in some form or another. How many friends do you know who post pictures of their every meal? Or every outfit their kid wears? Every concert they attend?

We do have a plan, it turns out. And the plan is awful.

There was a time, or so Im told, when feminism was about equality for women. Women had been treated as second-class citizens in many well-documented ways, and it was not right.

In every cartoon Ive seen with an ostrich, there comes a scene where it gets scared and buries its head in the sand. Ostriches dont do this in real life, but it came to symbolize, in cartoons at least, the concept of thinking something bad will go away if you simply ignore it.
