Obama’s anti-media tantrums

President Barack Obama treats the press like a spoiled child treats his parents. Despite the pampering, he just keeps complaining about them until he gets his way. As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren't complimentary enough.

Free to choose vs. cost-free access

How did women get birth control before President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act? Before Obamacare, a woman could go to a doctor and get birth control. She often had to pay or make a copayment for contraception. But in the 2014 political lexicon, that means she had no access.

‘The great adventure continues’

Ok. President Obama decreed that federal workers can extend their lunch hours by an hour to watch the U.S. play in the World Cup. Big deal. The president of Costa Rica gave all workers a full day off to watch their team.

Justices & their cellphones

Since the nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court went up in flames back in 1987, every appointee to the court has understood that when asked at confirmation hearings about how your personal experiences might affect your decisions, the right answer is "balls and strikes." Just an umpire, they all say, and even though no one - on the left or the right - believes this to be true, we all understand the necessity of the charade.

Kaiser’s Modesto, Manteca hospitals operate as one to provide best care

At Kaiser Permanente, we understand the community sentiment that led to the Manteca City Council's June 3 adoption of a non-binding resolution regarding the medical services offered at our Manteca Medical Center. Faced with a question about the operation of an important hometown institution, it's only natural to want that institution to have all services.

Manteca Kaiser members paid for & deserve full service hospital

My name is Amy Glass and I am a Manteca resident and an RN in the Kaiser Modesto ICU. I was one of the many Manteca residents who spoke at the Manteca City Council on June 3 in favor of a resolution asking Kaiser to immediately restore the services that it cut from the Kaiser Manteca Medical Center in January 2013.

Highway funding runs out of gas

Lawmakers writing the transportation spending bill have a problem. Actually they have 89 billion problems, because that's how many dollars they are short between what they want to spend over the next six years and the revenue bean counters expect.

Shakedown on the bridge!

When I think of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, I think of the decadeslong building of the new eastern span, the shameless political grandstanding for a project that ran $5 billion over budget - and the construction headaches that live on. Brian Maroney, Caltrans' chief engineer for the bridge, sees something entirely different. He sees a visual stunner that delights drivers as they emerge from Treasure Island to gasp at a skyway with twinkling lights curling toward the East Bay hills. He thrills at the experience to the user, especially at night. Most importantly, he sees a bridge that is safe.

Media helpers for White House summits

In November of 2002, Washington Post reporter-editor Bob Woodward unveiled excerpts of his latest book, "Bush at War," and caused a big stir by revealing that Fox News boss Roger Ailes had sent a confidential memo to the George W. Bush White House after 9/11 insisting the president stay tough against the terrorists.

Keeping Up With the Clintons

It's time to pass the hat for Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state has tried to distance herself from her weeks-ago assertion that after husband Bill left the White House, the couple were "dead broke." She told PBS that the line was "inartful," but only after she told a British paper that she does not count herself among the "truly well-off." Nobody knows the troubles she's seen.
