Earth to Kepler-452b

15 min 14 sec ago
NASA has discovered the answer to all of our problems. It is another planet, a possible twin to Earth that could theoretically sustain life.

Is America Entering a New Victorian Era?

15 min 14 sec ago
Forty-seven years ago, the musical "Hair" opened on Broadway. Elderly mavens -- the core theater audience then, unlike the throngs of tourists flocking to cheap movie adaptations today -- were instructed that America was entering an "Age of Aquarius." The old moral rules were extinct: we were entering a new era of freedom, experimentation and self-expression. 2015-07-28T00:01:00-04:00 2015-07-28T08:22:03Z Michael Barone

Republicans on Road to Ruin With Highway Bill

15 min 14 sec ago
Later this week, the highway trust fund officially runs out of money unless Congress authorizes more funding for roads and bridges. But the bill that is being pushed by Democrats and some Republicans is starting to look like a Republican Party Dunkirk that could infuriate conservative voters and even wind up costing the GOP the 2016 election. 2015-07-28T00:01:00-04:00 2015-07-28T08:22:03Z Stephen Moore

Documented Irresponsibility

15 min 14 sec ago
People who entered the United States illegally may be called "undocumented" in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues. 2015-07-28T00:01:00-04:00 2015-07-28T08:22:03Z Thomas Sowell

15 min 14 sec ago
As Hillary Clinton lays out her economic policy vision one vague speech at a time, the Democratic presidential frontrunner has leaned heavily on rhetoric and shied away from hard details.

The Casualness of It

15 min 14 sec ago
There she is, the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood having lunch at a nice restaurant and, between sips of wine, setting the going rate for various fetal body parts. She's a real pro, this Deborah Nucatola, so competent, so relaxed, so chatty. She betrays about as much emotion as someone putting together the next Neiman Marcus catalogue. 2015-07-27T14:19:00-04:00 2015-07-28T08:22:03Z Paul Greenberg

Senate Republicans had a chance to stop Planned Parenthood from butchering unborn children and selling their body parts to the highest bidder.

Gun Control: Eating Steak with Teaspoons

President Obama told the BBC he's "stymied" because he's not gotten his way regarding gun control --yet. So, apparently we should just relinquish our guns during a Second Amendment burning ceremony on the National Lawn. 2015-07-27T10:35:00-04:00 2015-07-28T08:22:03Z Susan Stamper Brown
