Do Blacks Need Favors?

18 min 47 sec ago
There are some areas of black life in which excellence can be found without the slightest hint of racial preferences. Young blacks dominate basketball, football and some track-and-field events despite the fact that there has been a history of gross racial discrimination in those activities. Blacks are also prominent in several areas of the entertainment industry. Those observations mean that racial discrimination alone is not an insurmountable barrier to success. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z Walter E. Williams

Of course, many will say that the world has always been a difficult and dangerous place and headlines like these are sometimes easy to be found. It seems however that most recently the struggle has been to keep these happenings from becoming headlines. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z Bill Tatro

Why Vladimir Putin Is Kicking Barack Obama's Behind

18 min 47 sec ago
On Monday, four days after Vladimir Putin's minions in Ukraine shot down a passenger airliner carrying 298 people, including an American citizen, President Barack Obama emerged from the White House to issue a statement. After fulminating for several minutes about the nastiness of the Russian government, Obama approached the predictable climax: threats of action. Except that there were none. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z Ben Shapiro

North Korea Looks to Joseph Stalin for Foreign Policy Guidance

The Soviets and the Chinese always denied they had a "bolt out of the blue" doctrine because it implied they would be the first to use nuclear weapons in a war. North Korea needs to know that their choice of words carry grave consequences. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z Night Watch

In short, the same group that requires private citizens to retain financial records for up to seven years under penalty of law is saying that they are unable to produce two years' worth of electronic correspondence relating directly to an active legal investigation, and furthermore that even if backup tapes of Ms. Lerner's emails did exist at one point, they most likely have been erased since the IRS only retains email records for six months. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z Ken Connor

A Policy So Bizzare, So Obama

The United States is using narrow sanctions against Russian billionaires—private persons presumably-- some of whom Obama supposes supports Russia’s war in Ukraine. And the policy isn’t just bizarre; it’s Obama. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z John Ransom

Detroit Residents of All Colors Need to Pay Their Water Bills

18 min 47 sec ago
?There’s nothing in the United States Constitution stating Americans have the right not to pay their bills. In fact, the Declaration of Independence, which gave birth to our nation, notes the only unalienable rights we have are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Yet thousands of Detroit residents think they have the right not to pay their water bills and demand their water remain on. 2014-07-23T00:01:00-04:00 2014-07-23T07:28:54Z Crystal Wright

Defining Life
