The President finally made his case to the nation why we needed to establish a no-fly zone in Libya. Nearly everyone agrees that Gadhafi has to go, we just need to figure out the best way to do it without becoming entrenched in another long war. What do cartoonists think? Check out our Gadhafi’s Gotta […]

Making Sense, by Michael Reagan If President Obama’s address to the nation the other night was meant to keep the American people up-to-date on the situation in the Middle East, it missed its mark, leaving us in a state of confusion. For starters, the president implicitly limited America’s proven exceptionalism. We may be exceptional, he […]

The ravages of the economic downturn have left a series of empty storefronts in my neighborhood. They exist as specters of a former up-and-coming enclave of local businesses. Now they’re home to hurried graffiti, the occasional panhandler and once a year to tax accountants. Yes, the hallows of what used to be local retail gems […]

In Citizens United v. FEC the Supreme Court rejected the idea that the government may determine whose speech is worthy of protection under the First Amendment.  As a result of the decision, individuals, small businesses, corporations, labor unions and non-profit organizations may all engage in political speech.  It is not the bailiwick of government bureaucrats […]
