ACA: GOP has to practice bipartisanship within itself

The good should never be the evil of the perfect. House Speaker Paul Ryan's health care bill is a very good first step. Massive repeal of Obamacare tax hikes will be great for the economy. Getting rid of the Affordable Care Act mandates will be great for health care. Private-sector competition and choice are always better than government-run anything. The Republican Party has to practice bipartisanship within itself.

Same remarks: Obama got kudos, Ben Carson called ‘Uncle Tom’

Ben Carson, in a speech before employees of Housing and Urban Development, the department he now runs, likened slaves to "immigrants": "That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder, for less. But they, too, had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land."

ABC’s gay propaganda flop

They say network television is a profit-oriented business, but that's obviously not the case when it clashes with Hollywood's sexual politics. Last week, ABC tried to lecture America with a four-part miniseries on the radical gay left called "When We Rise," and it tanked in ratings despite heavy promotion throughout the Academy Awards broadcast the night before the premiere.

Can’t turn the page

"A lot of people are upset when I talk about Mexican child rapes, Muslims clitorectomies, Muslim honor killings…white people don't do that. America is not used to these types of crimes. We are bringing in cultures where child rape is very common." – Ann Coulter

Obamacare can’t be ‘fixed’

The moment Republicans bought into the notion that Obamacare must not just be repealed but "replaced," Democrats won. Democrats argue that health care is a "right." Republicans claim they disagree, that nowhere in the Constitution does the federal government guarantee health care treatment or health care insurance. But Republicans' behavior suggests otherwise.

The mark of great presidents is optimism -- visionary optimism and transformational optimism. During Tuesday night's remarkable speech before Congress, President Donald Trump was brimming with optimism from start to end. My guess is that his marvelous speech will imbue and inspire new optimism and confidence throughout the entire country.

What’s the truth behind cancer-causing properties of burnt starchy foods?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have heard for a while now that the black stuff on burnt toast is carcinogenic. I don't eat it because it tastes bad, but now I hear that any browning on things like bread and potatoes could cause cancer. What is the evidence for these claims, and what do you recommend we do to address them in our daily lives? -- P.N.

Nervous over their dog’s black tongue

Dear Didi: We have a dog that we adopted from a shelter about 3 weeks ago. I am extremely concerned because he has a mostly black tongue. We thought it was kind of cute until someone at the pet store in town told us that it means he is a Chow Chow mix. I know Chows can have serious aggression issues. Are we in for a difficult time? -nervous in Manteca
