Happy International Workers Day, the perfect occasion to write about Bernie Sanders, an actual Socialist running for President.
Every American should join President Obama in his expression of condolences to the families of two hostages killed in January during a counterterrorism operation in Pakistan.
All in all, a pretty fun week for conservatives. Marco Rubio made a classy and inspiring entrance into a Republican field that is already impressive and energizing, and sure to become even more so.
In view of where the next few hundred words lead, I should establish up front my broad admiration for Rand Paul. I have said for years that I want the Republican 2016 nominee to have his devotion to limited government, his clarity on the Constitution, his unvarnished opposition to Obamacare and his gift for expanding the GOP base.
Funny thing. I dont know a single liberal who is looking hard in the mirror saying, Dang, I need to back off of my willingness to trample the sensibilities of Bible-believing Christians.
The weeks following any years Oscars are a home film festival at our house, an attempt to evaluate which movies were snubbed on the big night, and which were overpraised.
First of all, best of luck. If you are successful, it will be your job to dig the United States out of the eight-year abyss of the Obama presidency. This will take courage, vision, hard work and resiliency.

It is not just an American, or even a Western human value to defend satirists against death threats, it is a requirement of basic human decency.
Both gifts were made possible by the sad spectacle of capitulation a colossal give-up on the principles that make America great or did for a while.
It is a pack of lies and misrepresentations. It is dishonest to the core and makes little effort to seem otherwise.
Like most people across the political spectrum, I approach the Eric Garner arrest video with the requisite amount of dread.
When the Barack Obamas and Eric Holders of the world step out to tell us we have much work to do on race, they are right. But the racial progress we need to make is nothing like what they envision
I trust we have established that the Reagan and Bush 41 immigration adjustments were vastly different than what President Obama has foisted upon us.
If I had family or friends anywhere near Ferguson, Missouri, I would offer two layers of advice.
From the Senate to the House to the broad vista of the states, the adrenaline of conservative victory is flowing mightily.
There is something uniquely jarring about a display of selfish insolence from someone who is so praiseworthy in other respects. Maddening traits usually come from maddening people, as their true character surfaces.
