Ever since 9/11, whenever Americans seem especially polarized over a controversial issue, youll hear pundits recall how united wed became in the aftermath of that vicious attack. Why, they ask, cant we be like that again?

They won't go to Indiana, but they will go to Saudi Arabia. Thats Carly Fiorina speaking about Apple CEO Tim Cook and his well-publicized opposition to Indianas religious-freedom law.

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech. The words of the First Amendment couldnt be plainer. Yet more than two centuries after the Bill of Rights was written, they remain the subject of fierce debate.

Traitors. Thats a strong term, obviously. It should never be used lightly. Yet there it was, flying around like confetti in Times Square on New Years Eve.

Lets say you were a financial advisor, and a family came to you with the following situation.

Theres a reason the words Im from the government, and Im here to help are a punchline. Government involvement rarely helps. In many instances, in fact, it exacerbates the situation.

Ever heard of the Agriculture Risk Coverage program? How about the Price Loss Coverage program? Youre paying for them.

Many of us launch a new year with resolutions. We may not write out a formal list, but something about the arrival of January 1 makes us want to do better. We start a diet or an exercise program. We read or pray more. We get organized.

We are in a dangerous place in the world, perhaps more dangerous than in the past 10 years. Thats what former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff had to say when he visited The Heritage Foundation recently. And with reports of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State, often referred to as ISIS, all over the news, its not hard to see why.
