Like a lot of other Americans, I have been shocked in recent weeks at the number of businesses that cannot find workers. My daughter and I stopped at a fast-food restaurant here in South Bend, Indiana, two weeks ago on our way home from Chicago. After waiting 40 minutes in the drive-thru line, the beleaguered employee at the window handed us our...Read more
Our society was not founded upon lies. It was founded upon truths so fundamental that they have withstood even our own failure to live up to them.
Let's start with this one:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life...Read more
Researchers have noted a substantial decline in religious belief in the United States in recent years. By way of example, according to the Pew Research Center, the number of Americans who identified as Christian declined by 12% just between 2009 to 2019, and the number who identified as Protestant declined by 8%. Pew notes some similar trends ...Read more
A free country depends upon an honest and vigilant press to demand accountability from the country's political, economic and cultural leaders.
We are in serious trouble; our press is neither honest nor vigilant.
To the contrary, the national media in the United States is hopelessly biased, selectively incurious and relentlessly deceitful about...Read more
The Biden regime has not been in place for long, and already it is a constant barrage of bad news. First, it was the onslaught of immigrants crossing the border illegally: nearly 100,000 apprehended in February, 172,000 in March and almost 180,000 in April. Thousands are being held in confinement units intended to hold a fraction of that number....Read more
Caitlyn Jenner has announced that she is running for governor of California, to replace the unpopular Gavin Newsom, whose recall will be on the state ballot this fall. Her first campaign commercial dropped earlier this week, and it's really something.
Jenner appeals to Californians' best sense of themselves. In a tongue-in-cheek reference to ...Read more
When helping my daughter with her AP World History class recently, I was struck by the similarities between the present day and the troubled years between the first and second world wars. This similarity was driven home even more strongly by the recent death of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II's spouse of almost 74 years. Philip's passing ...Read more
One of the most disconcerting things to observe in present-day politics is Democrats' glee at the control they currently have over the branches of American government, and their giddy determination to use any means available by virtue of that control to obtain absolute power at both the federal and state levels.
President (King) Joe ...Read more
I've noticed that the Joe Biden voters I know personally -- as well as those I have followed on social media for some time -- have grown remarkably quiet since Biden entered the White House. I'm not talking about professionally clueless Hollywood celebrities, Democratic Party operatives or the media (same thing), who lie daily as they provide ...Read more
Growing up, I rarely -- if ever -- heard anyone in authority discuss the relationship between Judeo-Christian concepts of morality and health. Instead, morals were cast as somewhat arbitrary rules that had to be followed to avoid being cast into Hell.
I can't speak to what may happen in the afterlife. But in my almost six decades on the planet,...Read more
There was a testy Twitter exchange last week between Bernie Sanders, the socialist Democratic U.S. senator from Vermont, and eccentric billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.
Sanders started by tweeting that Musk and Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos have more wealth than "the bottom 40% of people in this country," a fact Sanders chalked up to "...Read more
