    The latest examples are the mobs in the streets in cities across the country, demanding that employers pay a minimum wage of $15 an hour, or else that the government makes them do so by law.

  • Favors and loot for sale

    Why do people and organizations cough up billions of dollars to line political coffers? One might answer that these groups and individuals are simply extraordinarily civic-minded Americans who have a deep and abiding interest in encouraging elected officials to live up to their oath of office to...

  • Will the Justice Department do justice in Ferguson?

    It has been over a month since Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Mo., and we have yet to hear the police officer's version of events.

  • Why I wrote 'Jesus on Trial'

    It is on Christian apologetics, which means it defends the Christian faith and its truth claims, but it also includes my personal journey from skeptic to believer and a discussion of basic Christian doctrine.

  • What defines success or failure for Obama on foreign policy?

    Everything in Obama's history suggests that he is going to leave the job half done, so long as that gets the issue off the front pages and off the TV newscasts.

  • Why didn't Obama pass immigration reform when he had the chance?

    Immigration reform would have to wait for 2010. And then 2011. And then 2012. And then 2013. And now 2014.

  • Obama's delusions dispelled? Well, we can hope for change

    This is not what President Obama expected for his presidency. The world was not supposed to fall apart.

  • My secret shame: I'm addicted to '19 Kids and Counting'

    It was only by chance that I stumbled across the decidedly wholesome and un-artistic "19 Kids and Counting." I showed up to mock the unbridled puritanism of a bunch of freaks -- not to mention poke fun at my own family for watching such dreck -- and I never left.

  • Obama doesn't fully grasp the threat of ISIS

    Obama appears to have a remarkable naivete concerning evil in the world. As low as his boiling point is concerning conservative opposition to his agenda, he seems not to have one for Islamic terrorism.
