Mike Tully “Substantial Disruption”: Franken sense

By Mike Tully Rose: But why would a man need more than one woman? Johnny: I don’t know. Maybe because he fears death. Rose: That’s it! That’s the reason! Johnny: I don’t know… Rose: No! That’s it! Thank you! Thank you for answering my question! “Moonstruck” (1987) This is a fitting time to remember that […]

Phil Richardson: Joe Biden

Phil Richardson: Joe Biden

By Phil Richardson I’m sorry that the son of the 47th Vice President of the United States died of brain cancer and the accumulative effects of that and the earlier loss of Biden’s first wife and daughter in an auto accident, prevented him from entering the 2016 presidential race. He would have won his party’s […]

Rep. Martha McSally: Hard working families like yours deserve a tax break

Rep. Martha McSally: Hard working families like yours deserve a tax break

By Rep. Martha McSally Families today are working more but can afford less.  Throughout the United States, the cost of college, health care and housing have each outpaced wage growth in the past decade. Sixty-three percent of Americans don’t have enough to cover a $500 emergency. When they become parents, they are faced with a new price […]

Joe Guzzardi: Meanwhile, down on the southwest border…

By Joe Guzzardi President Trump returned from a five-nation Asia tour, claiming “tremendous success” and declaring that “America is back.” But while President Trump was nation-hopping, troubling news surfaced on immigration, his signature issue.

David S. D’Amato: The government is not your mom and can’t force you to share

David S. D’Amato: The government is not your mom and can’t force you to share

By David S. D’Amato Humankind’s propensity to act selfishly is taken to be an important problem in political theory: an impediment, perhaps, to the utopian dreams of political philosophers. State-organized collectivization is often wrongly believed to provide a way out of the cycle of selfishness, but of course it doesn’t. People remain human, motivated to act […]

Ben Crystal: Say no, Moore

Ben Crystal: Say no, Moore

By Ben Crystal It’s time to cut Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore loose. I realize he was a better choice — from a purely political standpoint — than his primary challenger, Luther Strange. Strange is neither a villain nor a hero, but his ties to disgraced ex-Alabama Governor Bentley, in combination with his association with […]

Victor Davis Hanson: Some American allies only survive through U.S. protection

Victor Davis Hanson: Some American allies only survive through U.S. protection

The world equates American military power with the maintenance of the postwar global order of free commerce, communications and travel. Sometimes American power leads to costly, indecisive interventions like those in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya that were not able to translate superiority on the battlefield into lasting peace. But amid the frustrations of American foreign […]

Harry Alexander: Tucson zoo props apparently pass

By Harry Alexander Last week, I wrote that the two City of Tucson ballot propositions concerning the Reid Park Zoo had failed. On Thursday of last week, the vote counters tallied up all those approximately 10,000 votes that were left laying on the floor and elsewhere and came up with a final count. Turns out […]
