    After an earthquake and now a hurricane, this week in politics seems so boring. If you really think about it, were these people not fighting over the ability to make your life Hell, it would be really boring. But they are, so it’s not.<

    Ten years after the horrific attacks of 9/11, the remains of those murdered that day are still being identified.

    The biggest problem for the plunging stock market is coming out of Europe. Fears over the safety and solvency of European government debt and banks are haunting the stock market. I still don’t believe it’s 2008. But yes, like everyone else, I’m worried.

    I want to share with you a victory we have achieved in our efforts to protect the rights of those who wanted to show a powerful documentary marking the anniversary of 9/11 in several parks in New York City.

    Because the radical demands of groups like the American Civil Liberties Union run counter to common sense and the tenets of Western Civilization, they and their leftist allies and colleagues use fear, intimidation, and disinformation to accomplish their ends which generally mean a loss of liberty for everyone else.

    As the nation mourns the loss in combat of thirty of its military heroes - including 22 members of the Navy's elite SEAL Team 6 - in Afghanistan over the weekend, the question inevitably occurs: What are we fighting for that justifies this latest among so much sacrifice in that distant, backwards and inhospitable land?

    It's a steamy August day, and the candidate arrives shortly after high noon for an outdoor rally in full sun. But bounding off the campaign bus, she is smiling broadly, and no wonder: It's a good day to be Michele Bachmann.

    But there is a difference -- a sharp difference -- between disputing a view you reject and demonizing someone who holds that view as a murderous enemy. Liberals who loathe the Tea Party have every right to challenge it. But when, in an apoplectic frenzy, they defame its members as "terrorists," they go way too far, and debase only themselves.

    So, in a nutshell, I think it’s time for American Atheists to start carrying their own crosses. And they should do it without the help of American judges.

    When arch rivals like the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers go head-to-head, anything is fair game. Except cheating. Winning is the end-goal, but neither team will knowingly jeopardize its NFL standing.

    But, if the players are not willing to reach an agreement, for whatever reason, the result is the same—anxiety at least, and unpaid soldiers at worst. Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, was recently quoted in Army Times saying: “When you’ve got forces in war who need to be focused on that mission—that is a great concern.”

    "Glee" is not just an American TV show, it is also the emotion many people feel and express toward the trouble Rupert Murdoch's News Corp is having, since they consider Murdoch's properties a blight on their formerly pristine media landscape.

    In one of the many exit interviews Gen. David Petraeus has given as his command in Afghanistan comes to an end, he made the following statement: "No country has suffered more from Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida than Afghanistan."

    It’s been said over the last several years that “the military is at war, and Americans are at the mall”—a rather trite way of stating that far-off wars tend to escape the public’s attention—especially when the media only covers the conflict when there are a lot of American deaths.

    My best guess is the sun is hot. I feel its heat. I see by its light. I understand its role in the growth of crops and other living things.

    On Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes plunged into the World Trade Center, Americans watched in awe as New York firefighters, police and paramedics rushed to the scene at risk to their own lives. Some 343 firefighters and paramedics and 60 police officers paid the ultimate price in their desperate rush to save other lives.

    I have my doubts about the deputy commanding general of Ft. Hood. Despite overwhelming evidence that Hasan committed an act of jihad, DiSalvo -- like the Army, like the U.S. government -- looks the other way.

    How would you describe a perennial presidential candidate who insists in a televised debate that government has no more right to interfere with prostitution or heroin than it does to limit the right of the people to “practice their religion and say their prayers”?

    Mr. Blair endorses what Mr. Bush says about the most important issue of our time. Blair clarifies the moral courage and the serenity with which GWB made his decisions. Quite often, they worked through those decisions in unison.

    I am proud to be ahead of the curve on this issue and I commend Senator John McCain and Congressman Ron Paul for their steadfast opposition to torture. "Thinking that torture is wrong is not a liberal or conservative value - it is simply a value."
