Trumpby C. Edmund Wright   12/16/15
Man, I’m slap worn out.  I realize that after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, national security and foreign policy were the appropriate themes of this debate, but almost three hours of it made for root canal and repetitive TV. More » • (842 views)

Bailouts for Private Pension Funds

Pensionsby Jon N. Hall    12/14/15

Where Trump is Wrong on Muslim Immigration

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke12/14/15
Donald Trump proved again why he’s the man the Establishment loves to hate, suggesting early last week that we ban Muslim immigration “until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.” More » • (698 views)

When Ignorance Is Not Bliss

Ignorance2by Anniel12/13/15
I have been trying diligently to keep up with and understand what passes for serious thinking in the world these days. Honestly, things change so rapidly that remaining sane is almost a losing battle for anyone with any attention span at all. More » • (695 views)
