BART strike calls for labor contract reform

Knowing that the strikes by unionized BART employees this year created such significant hardships for hundreds of thousands of California commuters, it's time that something be done to put an end to transit strikes that disrupt public transportation. Each time the battle ensues between the BART employees' union and BART management, commuters who rely on BART trains are forced to navigate lengthy alternative transportation routes and the economy loses $70 million a day. This creates an exceptional hardship for commuters who live in the Central Valley - our neighbors, friends, and family members who rely on BART to get to ...

Benghazi hoax begets more hoaxes

No lie. CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager told The New York Times that the segment was "as big a mistake as there has been" on the 45-year-old news staple. Given that "60 Minutes II" had to retract a 2004 report on the National Guard service of President George W. Bush, to the chagrin of anchorman Dan Rather, Fager essentially admitted to epic failure.

Monsanto’s absurdity reaches new heights

It was my privilege to go to Des Moines recently for a World Food Prize extravaganza recognizing Monsanto's work against global hunger. But wait, Monsanto is not a hunger-fighter. It's a predatory proliferator of proprietary and genetically engineered seeds.

War on religious freedom

Americans who believe in God had better wake up and realize that a well-orchestrated campaign is moving to fundamentally transform the United States into a scrupulously secular nation. If this succeeds, we will no longer enjoy our First Amendment right of "free exercise" of religion but will be forbidden to speak or display any prayers, Bible quotations or other evidences of religion in any public place or event.
