We need more children

It made front-page headlines around the world when China's Communist Party announced the end of its notorious one-child policy. Imposed by Chinese dictator Deng Xiaoping in the late 1970s, the one-child limit has been ruthlessly enforced with forced abortion, infanticide, sterilization, and heavy fines on families that dared to have a second child.

Long-overdue vigilance

The competing Republicans presidential campaigns had a meeting on Nov. 1 to discuss their concerns with how the Republican National Committee had planned debates with the media. That's a healthy development, considering the CNBC debate, in which liberal journalists asked one too many deliberately snide and hostile "gotcha" questions attacking the GOP candidates, and the candidates exploded in anger.

Clinton plays gender card

Familial mediterranean fever is genetic condition

DEAR DR. ROACH: After an intestinal virus, I ended up in the hospital with a sed rate of 110 and a high white blood count. I was feeling crippled with severe joint pain and was diagnosed with reactive arthritis. I was discharged with steroids and colchicine. I'm still taking the colchicine because my doctor said I have familial Mediterranean fever, and the colchicine is helping. I am a full-blooded Italian. She also said I have the HLA-B27 antigen. Two months later, my sed rate is back to normal, but I'll be taking colchicine for another month and then ...

Hillary won. America lost.

The narrative following Hillary's testimony at Congress' recent Benghazi hearing is clear: Hillary won. She (for the most part) calmly answered all the questions. She nodded approvingly when the Democrats on the committee accused Republicans of engaging in a partisan witch-hunt.
