Immigration reform can be much simpler than $40b boondoggle bill

The Senate is so out of touch that some leaders think the way to pass a path-to-citizenship bill for immigrants in the country illegally is to budget $40 billion for extra immigration enforcement over the next 10 years. This is the type of cynical ploy that makes everyone hate Washington.

Supreme Court marriage decisions

The Supreme Court decision on marriage, as Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent, "is an assertion of judicial supremacy over the people's Representatives in Congress and the Executive. It envisions a Supreme Court standing (or rather enthroned) at the apex of government, empowered to decide all constitutional questions, always and everywhere 'primary' in its role."

Buying shoes & fighting terrorists

I have no problem with the news sites recommending stories to me, or the shopping sites figuring I'm good for another look at those size-41 shoes. I have no problem with someone using my supposedly "private" information to sell me more and target me for whatever they know I'm interested in. But I have to draw the line.

Obama is no fool on Syria

Last week, Bill Clinton warned that President Barack Obama risked looking like a "wuss" and "a total fool" for not acting sooner on Syria. Shortly thereafter - but two months after Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel charged that strongman Bashar Assad had crossed a "red line" in using chemical weapons against his own people - the White House announced that in response to Assad's use of sarin, the administration would send small arms to help Syrian rebels.

Dishonest immigration reform

The newly amended 1,198-page "comprehensive" immigration bill was plunked on Senate desks last Friday afternoon. On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid forced through an initial vote over the objections of senators who said they had not read it. Sen. Mike Lee labeled the ploy "banana republic" politics.

Farmers pay heavy price for nuisance litigation

In general, we don't take kindly to the government busting down our door and telling us how to live. Yet in 2010, the government did exactly that in a major way: a federal district court judge ordered the uprooting of over 250 acres of biotech-enhanced sugarbeets in Oregon. The safety of the genetically-enhanced produce was never in question; the seeds had previously been subjected to multiple, rigorous scientific tests and were determined by the government to be safe. Rather, anti-biotech advocates filed suit against the USDA over allegations of procedural technicalities in an effort to drive their political agenda ...
