Danger Lurks When We Divide Ourselves.

Learning Activity: Does your "private faith" match your public actions? If not, why not? If you were to identify an area or circumstance in your life where you fall down or could do better in this respect what would that be? What improvements could you begin to make today? How about long term? Predict the impact such positive change would have in your relationship with God, with your spouse, with your family, with your friends and with your colleagues. How would it impact your self-respect and your future goals?

Finding an old friend

Finding an old friend

Our Pathetic President

Our Pathetic President

BY ALAN CARUBA The first thing you need to keep in mind is that Syria and Iraq are now just lines on a map at this point. They don’t exist as national states because the former is locked in a civil war that will replace its dictator one way or the other and the latter’s alleged government [...]

Chile’s Proposed Education Reforms Would Kill the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs

ANDREW J. COULSON, CATO INSTITUTE For the past three decades, Chile has had a nationwide voucher-like school choice program. Parents can choose among public and private schools, and the government picks up most or all of the tab. But, since the election last fall of a left-leaning government led [...]

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

BY ALAN CARUBA My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early [...]

The War Neither Obama, Nor Any Other Nation Wants to Fight

The War Neither Obama, Nor Any Other Nation Wants to Fight

BY ALAN CARUBA Two trends have emerged since President Obama’s September 10 speech regarding his intention to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State. One is the understanding that he will not commit U.S. troops as “boots on the ground” to fight a force estimated variously between [...]

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

BY SELWYN DUKE If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great [...]

Supremacist Judges on the March Again

Supremacist Judges on the March Again

BY PHYLISS SCHLAFLY It is a long-standing American custom in all sorts of legislative and other public meetings to open the meeting with a prayer. This bothers the atheists, so they have initiated many lawsuits to try to get supremacist judges to forbid prayers at public meetings. Last May, [...]

The Free Market Ignores the Poor – Clichés of Progressivism

LEONARD E. READ, THE FREEMAN Clichés of Progressivism, Part 6 Once an activity has been socialized for a spell, nearly everyone will concede that that’s the way it should be. Without socialized education, how would the poor get their schooling? Without the socialized post office, how [...]

Forget Slavery: Even Too Uncle Tom for Conservatives?

LLOYD MARCUS, PROUD UNHYPHENATED AMERICAN Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a [...]

Islam is the Face of Evil

Islam is the Face of Evil

BY ALAN CARUBA "ISIS is not Islamic", said  Barack Obama as he gave yet another vapid speech to say what he will or will not do next about the threat of Islam. What he said is both idiotic and a lie. ISIS calls itself the Islamic State. Obama used the word "war" only once, but ISIS is [...]

Yes, I Blame White Liberals

MARK W. HENDRICKSON Having written earlier this summer about the whack-a-mole regulatory state running wild under the presidency of Barack Obama, the biggest question in my mind was which of the myriad federal regulatory agencies would be the next to throw a monkey wrench into the economy.

An Economist’s Bad Climate Advice

BY ALAN CARUBA If I need my car repaired, I do not take it to a dentist. If I am seeking advice about the climate I check out what climatologists and meteorologists are saying, at least those who have not sold their souls to the global warming/climate change hoax. On September 3 The Wall [...]
