Nancy Pelosi is out of touch

Asked whether she needed to apologize to the formerly insured who have lost their health insurance plans, former House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said, "Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it? I would have if I'd ever met anybody who liked his or her plan.

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 ...

Killing a rhino to save rhinos

Have you ever heard of the rabbit hunter's nightmare?A guy dreams that he and a few of his buddies have fanned out across some brushland to scare-up and shoot a few hares.

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.

Peace protests, R.I.P.

Where are the peaceniks? Why aren't they marching on Capitol Hill to protest President Barack Obama's use of military force in Syria and Iraq? The San Francisco Chronicle's Kevin Fagan interviewed peace activists who told him that their ranks are numb, in part because America has been at war for more than a decade.
