Making Sense by Michael Reagan Hillary Clinton called the Hobby Lobby decision “deeply disturbing.” The White House reacted like the world had just ended. Harry Reid promised that Democrats in Congress would “fight to preserve women’s access to contraceptive coverage and keep bosses out of the examination room.” All this liberal hysteria followed the Supreme […]

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she’d like to take the Central America aliens held at illegal immigrant detention centers home with her. Pelosi views the invasion of tens of thousands of aliens as a “humanitarian opportunity.” After all, Pelosi illogically reasoned, we’re “all Americans,” meaning everyone in the Americas’ northern and southern hemisphere. While […]

Tyrades!  By Danny Tyree Where were you on April 8, 1974? I was in the upstairs bedroom I shared with younger brother Dwight, listening to the radio as Hank Aaron broke the career home run record set by George Herman “Babe” Ruth, Jr. some four decades earlier. Aaron’s milestone did nothing to diminish the legacy […]

Conservative Christians cheered when Hobby Lobby was able to deny working-women of childbearing age birth control coverage though their company’s insurance plan. They called it a victory for “religious freedom.” I would like to see those applauding this newly discovered corporate-conscience also stand up for other religions’ freedom: Islam, Flying Spaghetti Monster or Scientology. Otherwise […]

“I’m confused. I thought July 4 was the day our country declared independence from King George III of Great Britain.” “Actually, according to ConstitutionFacts.com, that’s not so. The Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain on July 2, 1776.” “Then why do we celebrate our independence on the Fourth every year? Is that when we […]

The small world of editorial cartooning was delivered a blow to the body last week, as the industry said goodbye to two legendary pioneers. No one blazed a trail quite like Etta Hulme, the long-time political cartoonist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. When she was first hired back in 1972, Hulme was among the first […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst You don’t hear much about the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. And that, my friends, is a good thing. Usually this federal office is as controversial as parsley wrapped celery. On a 1-10 scale of boring, patent law has to rate about a 3,000. That’s normally. But today this obscure […]

In order for Americans to fully grasp the border crisis, they must first understand the difference between an illegal alien and a refugee, one of the many tricky points in immigration law. Simply put, aliens from Canada or Mexico can be returned immediately; those from other countries can only be held for a maximum of […]

Independent’s Eye by Joe Gandelman Hillary Clinton looks like the person to beat for the 2016 Democratic Presidential nomination, and any Republican who could get the GOP nomination can’t defeat her in a general election. She is also a flawed and overhyped candidate who carries enough baggage to overwhelm several TSA inspectors, and she’d be […]

Tyrades! By Danny Tyree A few years ago, my wife and I changed propane companies solely because the friendly receptionist had been fired for taking an extended medical leave. So I can see why the first White House Summit on Working Families (and President Obama’s call for legislation and voluntary reforms to give workers greater […]
