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. But that was not my experience."

Obamacare: McNerney’s thumbs down

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told "Meet the Press" on Sunday, "Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act." Not in her backyard - in the nearby delta counties, some Dems are trying to distance themselves from Obamacare.

Obamacare: Unaffordable, incomprehensible

Chaos. "The whole mess has thrown the country, millions of people, the insurance market, into chaos," wrote Paul Palumbo, one of the million Californians who were notified that because of the Affordable Care Act, their Blue Shield plans would end Dec. 31.

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 ...

President Obama lied to us

"If you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Period." Those words will haunt Barack Obama through the remainder of his term and probably achieve eternal life in books of memorable quotations.

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. They kill a couple, but then, one of the hunting buddies who'd headed down a slope into a thicket on the right suddenly comes bolting up the slope, all wild-eyed and screaming at the others: "Run, run - the rabbits have guns!"

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.

Operating under influence of profits

What happens to a person when their reckless driving while under the influence alcohol kills eight people? How about if this same person then gets indicted for criminal negligence leading to the accident and for lying about vehicle maintenance records? And, on top of it all, additional federal charges of jury tampering and backroom deal making? While confinement and loss of liberty might be expected for an individual whose dependence on alcohol results in death and destruction, what happens if the "person" instead is a corporation hooked on profits?

Trying to silence Bill Maher

"The students at the University of California at Berkeley represent a diverse array of students from all walks of life," begins the student petition. Somehow you just know that before the end, the document will demand that the administration muzzle someone - for the sake of diversity. The spirit of far-left censors trumps exposure to novel ideas. Hence the petition, titled "Stop Bill Maher from speaking at UC Berkeley's December graduation."

Hillary Clinton flunks economics

Liberals have this terrible and annoying habit of congratulating themselves for their intellectual heft merely because they hold liberal views. Once this arrogant notion reigns, it's tough for liberals to acknowledge when one of their own says something so remarkably untrue and stupid that it makes you wonder just how ignorant is the liberal really.

Ebola: Trust politicians or experts?

"I would not be inclined to make a political decision on something as serious as Ebola," Gov. Jerry Brown told the San Francisco Chronicle's Carla Marinucci on Monday. By Wednesday, California had joined New Jersey and New York in mandating 21-day quarantines for people returning from Ebola-stricken areas if they had contact with infected patients. Unlike New York, California had yet to see a confirmed Ebola case, although state health officials are aware of 19 individuals who recently traveled to an Ebola-affected country.
