Where have all the workers gone?

That America created only 88,000 jobs in March, less than half the number anticipated, was jolting news, indicating the recovery that the White House has boasted about may not be at hand.

An invaluable bit of advice often shared within the military community is to never, ever, underestimate your enemy. The annals of history are replete with those who have ignored this axiom.

A re-run of the Great Depression

Pipelines and pipe dreams

Whom does Barack Obama want to please more - out-of-work adults who would love a high-wage job building the Keystone XL pipeline or tony venture capitalists who travel cloistered in private jets when they're not complaining that Washington doesn't do enough about global warming?

Guns: Bills turn into do-nothing laws

Readers share their ideas. Since the massacre in December in Newtown, Conn., which left 20 children and six elementary-school staff members dead, readers have passed on a host of so-called remedies. Let's make gun owners be licensed and pass a test, some have suggested. So the problem is, I ask them, that these mass killers aren't good shots?

Under-taxing the rich is uncivilized

Please don't fret about paying taxes. They're your most productive investment. As Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. noted more than a century ago, "Taxes are what we pay for civilized society."

Williams gets it half right on guns

My latest book, "Dear Father, Dear Son," focuses on the importance of fathers - and the increasing number of children who grow up in homes without one. Fox's Juan Williams understands this - sort of. He gets the "what," but not the "why."

April: The cruelest month for taxpayers

Another wake-up call from North Korea

Thirty years ago, on March 23, 1983, Ronald Reagan made a television address calling on the United States to build an anti-missile defense. His rationale was compelling: Isn't it better to save American lives than to kill millions of the enemy?

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.

Republicans Won’t Pass Immigration Reform

The New York Times reports that House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy is considered "the best hope" to win passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill in Congress after he becomes majority leader in July. It's sort of quaint how the Gray Lady wants to believe in miracles.

Furor About Plan for Illegal Kids

Obama administration officials trekked out to a tiny rural community in southern Virginia to teach the local yokels a thing about immigration policy. Yet the lessons learned were not by the local farmers but by the bureaucrats who got more than an earful in protests against placing illegal aliens in their small town of Lawrenceville.

Steve Scalise, a rising conservative star

"Reinvigorating the leadership" is how one senior House staffer described the ascendency of Steve Scalise, the Louisiana Republican who won a first-ballot victory for the position of GOP whip. The staffer went on to portray Scalise as not a member of the Washington establishment. Indeed, Scalise is a former chair of the Republican Study Committee, the conservative caucus in the U.S. House. He has had a meteoric rise, and he is someone to be reckoned with.

The new Eric Cantor

How's this for a punch line? You stage a rebellion to get rid of Eric Cantor, who is on his worst day (to critics on the right) a very conservative _guy who relishes hardball tactics, and he gets replaced by a pragmatic moderate from California. You call this victory?

Absurd activism on ‘Redskins’

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office found its way to the front page by declaring the word "Redskins" was offensive and therefore unworthy of trademark protection under a 1946 law that proscribes trademarks for "immoral, deceptive, or scandalous matter."

The fight against campus rape

The first time I ever went "online" to do a search on the "World Wide Web" (yes, we used to call it that), I figured I'd pick a subject I knew a lot about and see what was there. So I typed in the word "rape" - a subject I learned about the hard way many decades ago and have been teaching and writing about for the past 30 years. To my surprise and horror, what popped up on my search were not sites aimed at providing resources or support for the victims of rape, but one horror story site ...

Poll-tested pee in a cup

"Pee in a cup" is a phrase you should prepare to hear frequently this election season. A requirement that doctors be subject to random drug and alcohol testing is the curb-appeal provision in a measure that will be on the California ballot in November.

Slaughter in Iraq — Bush’s fault?

President Barack Obama, on Dec. 12, 2011, called Iraq "self-reliant and democratic." He praised that country, calling it a "new Iraq that's determining its own destiny - a country in which people from different religious sects and ethnicities can resolve their differences peacefully through the democratic process." Obama said, "I have no doubt that Iraq can succeed."

‘Transgender tipping point’

Now that our cultural elites feel they have sufficiently educated the public on the virtues of gays and lesbians, it's time to drill down to the next level. Here comes transgenderism. Time magazine placed "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox (born Charles Cox) on the cover as the face of "The Transgender Tipping Point: America's Next Civil Rights Frontier."
