America has always been a melting pot. We are a nation founded by people from all over the world who came here seeking a better life for themselves and their families. So why is immigration such a hot-button issue?

Not many people make a habit of carrying large amounts of cash around. After all, thieves could steal it. How ironic, then, that a growing threat to your money are the people youd call if your money was stolen: the police.

Debate. Its the hallmark of an open society. We may hold different points of view on a certain topic, but we can express those views freely, without fear of repercussions.

Lets say youve been letting your child watch too much TV. You decide, quite sensibly, to cut down on his viewing time. Think hell realize its for the best and take it without a fuss?

To say that Pope Franciss visit to the U.S. drew a lot of media attention would be an understatement. The coverage was round-the-clock. Yet as a lifelong cradle Catholic, educated by Jesuits, I couldnt help noticing what a remarkably incomplete, if not misleading, portrait emerged of the Holy Father.

Unless the American Civil Liberties Union gets its way. They recently filed a lawsuit to stop Nevadas ESAs from taking effect.

President Reagan had a gift for proving his critics wrong. Almost none of the leading economists of the late 1970s thought that his supply-side tax-cutting agenda, along with stable monetary policy and deregulation, could revive the U.S. economy

If you can read this, thank a teacher, begins a saying you can find on t-shirts and bumper stickers. If you can read it in English, thank a veteran.

Its hard to say which is more galling: when politicians want to extend the life of a program that doesnt work, or when they want to pull the plug on one that does.

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.
