When government runs health care it's not perfect

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

DUBLIN -- "When would you like to schedule your knee replacement surgery?" asked my American doctor before I left for Ireland? I gave him a date that works for me (I'm calling it the result of an old basketball injury, not advancing age). His office scheduled it for that date.

Will Democrats tax your retirement savings?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The late bank robber Willie “The Actor” Sutton is said to have been asked by a reporter why he robbed banks, to which he supposedly replied, "Because that's where the money is." In his autobiography, Sutton denied the quote, but it serves as a warning to those who fear ...Read more

Unequal justice

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

A 'lost' generation?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

There are people in every generation who believe the generation following theirs is either going to the dogs or will ruin the country.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll lends credence to that way of thinking, especially ...Read more

They've lost their minds in San Francisco

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

San Francisco, a city described in song for its natural beauty, is descending into an abyss of homelessness, the use of sidewalks as toilets and a place you might not want to visit, much less live.

The latest, but surely not the last demonstration of insanity, is San Francisco's Board of Supervisors' adoption of new "person first" language ...Read more

Times' "1619 Project" seeks to destroy America as we know it

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Remember the controversy in 2012 when President Obama said, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

In context, the president was trying to make the point that in addition to...Read more

Can the insulter-in-chief use the same tactics to win a second term?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

During a December 2015 debate among Republican presidential candidates in Las Vegas, former Florida governor Jeb Bush said to Donald Trump: "You can't insult your way to the presidency."

Never mind.

The question for next year's election is whether the insulter-in-chief ...Read more

A new organization seeks to educate young people of the evils of Socialism

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

President Trump has repeatedly promised, "America will never be a socialist country." Since Franklin Roosevelt began expanding government in the 1930s, the United States has increasingly adopted big-state policies associated with ...Read more

None dare call it 'conspiracy'

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

After the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, investigators discovered that the lone man assigned to guard the president, John Parker, had abandoned his post to watch the play from an adjacent box at Ford's Theater. Worse, at intermission, Parker adjourned to...Read more

For our nation to defeat evil, we must turn to God

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Politicians and pundits are promoting familiar explanations, excuses and demands following the tragic mass murders in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. From more gun laws, to blaming President Trump, conservative talk radio and Fox News, we've heard it all before.

A manifesto thought to be linked to the El Paso killer was posted online just ...Read more

To whom should the "racist" label be more accurately applied?

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Calling someone "racist" has become the default position for liberal politicians and certain members of the media who wish to deflect attention from real problems.

President Trump has (again) been called a racist for having the temerity to note that House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) seems to spend more time ...Read more

Just ask the Founders about national debt

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The Founders of the United States of America warned against massive federal debt, but, to our detriment, their political descendants are not paying attention. The Founders speak to us from their graves to condemn and warn of the consequences now that President Trump and Congress have come to an agreement about lifting the meaningless "debt ...Read more

We need to end immigration altogether to fix it

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

For safety reasons, fire marshals control the number of people who can occupy a building at any one time. We've seen what happens when crowds get too large and a fire breaks out, causing panic and often death. So why not control the crowd illegally entering America?

We control water so that it won't overflow a bathtub or sink, causing damage ...Read more

The left swims in a deep sea of hypocrisy

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

The phrase "America, Love It or Leave It" has a pedigree dating back at least to the McCarthy Era. In the '70s, the phrase was employed again against those protesting America's involvement in the Vietnam War. The left has its own version, vowing to leave the country if a Republican is ...Read more

Remembering Apollo 11 at 50

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

You had to be there 50 years ago, and I was. As a young reporter for a local TV station in Houston, I frequently visited NASA ("the space base," we dubbed it), met many of the astronauts and reported on their exploits.

Along with people from around the world, I watched the lunar landing on television, July 20, 1969, fulfilling ...Read more

Hungary makes immigrants want to stay away

From the Right / Cal Thomas /

Two summers ago on a visit to Budapest, I asked the spokesman for the Hungarian government about the growing problem of migrants coming into Europe. He told me Hungary doesn't have a migrant problem because they don't have welfare programs. So, he said, migrants continue their travels to other European countries that do.

That's not the end of ...Read more
