The powerless president

Donald Trump is learning a lesson he should have known during the campaign. Being president is not like being the host of "Celebrity Apprentice" or a billionaire boss. Not everyone works for you. They don't all run around saying that you're a genius, doing whatever you tell them, literally treating you like a king. Being president is nothing like being a king.

Essential thrombocythemia comes with bleeding risk

DEAR DR. ROACH: Recently, I was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia. The recommended treatment is the drug hydroxyurea because I turned 60 this past year and have a mutation in the JAK 2 gene. If I had not turned 60, the recommended treatment would be aspirin alone. Currently, I am taking the recommended 81-mg aspirin dose daily. I have a very healthy lifestyle: I'm an avid runner, with workouts twice a week at the gym, and I have no history of blood clots, etc. I have no symptoms at this time. I've been getting monthly blood draws to monitor ...

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."

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in the U.K. has over 180 clinical guidelines.

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.

Optimism reigned in first Trumps address to Congress

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.
