Perspective. According to a 2010 national survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Justice, more men than women were victims of intimate partner physical violence and over 40% of severe physical violence was directed at men. Men were also more often the victim of psychological aggression and control over sexual or reproductive health. Despite this, few services are available to male victims of intimate partner violence. On a personal basis, my wife is a successful real estate developer who employs a a lot of people and is the poster woman for a strong, independent, successful woman. This morning I asked her "If you had a good employee who had hit his wife like the football player did would you fire him?" She said "Of course not. While I do not approve of the behavior, it has nothing to do with my business or his performance as an employee. It is between him and the woman. There are criminal and civil penalties available to her and society. Involving the NFL in this is ridiculous."

Paul Ryan Has Answer for Ferguson

Based on his new book, Paul Ryan is now a full member of the Washington Republican establishment. He is more interested in accumulating power than in what the people want. He has become an arrogant advocate for the we (Congress) know best and the people be damned position. He advocates getting rid of the mortgage deduction, which would kill the housing market and create great financial hardship for many people. It's time to replace Paul Ryan with someone who truly cares about, and represents, "we the people."
Every opportunity I get I personally thank police officers for protecting us. They are the line between us and the Ferguson mobs. That's what the country would look like if we did not have police. For the few police officers who may act inappropriately, there are thousands who stand up and do the right thing every day. They deserve our appreciation and respect.
Thank you. I read the article completely, then moved a bit further for peer review and other points of view. Apparently Dean Hamer's research has been thoroughly debunked, see http://fathersforlife.org/gay_issues/gay_gene.htm. In addition, a review of his work and associates found that many of the researchers involved in this type of project are themselves gay. Not saying that gay people can't be good scientists, just wondering about bias and self interest.
Stating that "Some people are clearly "born" gay and have always been attracted to the same sex" provides support to the theory that there is a genetic component, i.e. a "gay" gene. I have never seen any study that supports this theory. I'm not saying that most people choose to be gay, as many studies show sexual orientation is developed at a relatively early age. But please, don't distort science and provide support for false claims by implying that some people are born gay.
The Holocaust happened over 70 years ago, should we just get over that too? Is it not okay to mourn the killing of millions of unborn human beings? Is any law that is over 40 years old okay...no matter what the result?

Let us hope that Dr. Sowell decides to follow his own advice and stops beating up Senator Ted Cruz.
Read Vince Flynn's Term Limits for the answer to the McCain, Schumer et al problem.

I have supported Dr. Sowell's work at the Hoover Institute for many years with annual restricted contributions. He is one of the most articulate experts on economics, race and culture alive, with the ability to explain complex issues with clarity, always backed up with extensive citations. These recent posts regarding Senator Cruz, who I regard as a bright light in a deep dark well, seem out of character, and even personal. Senator Cruz represents everything that Dr. Sowell professes to believe in, and he clearly has not been sucked into the morass that is Washington, DC. He is "Mr. Smith goes to Washington," representing not only the people who elected him but all the people. With his personal attacks on Senator Cruz, Dr. Sowell appears to be supporting the milquetoast establishment Republicans. We have already proven, with the election of Senator's Cruz and Rubio and others, that true conservatives can win elections. There are times to be cautious, and times to rush boldly into the fight. I think this is the time to fight.
