  • GOP campaign cry: “Benghazi, or Impeach?”

    With 2014 being the year of mid-term elections in President Obama’s final term, you’d think Republicans would be out and about telling the country about their ideas.
        But old habits really do die hard, and especially the old habits of the modern GOP, whose aging, white male conservatives not only have no new ideas of their own, but they’ve never been able to advance beyond their simple hatred and resentment of this particular president.

  • Putting an end to the government’s bulk data collection

    After months of oversight and collaboration between members from both sides of the aisle, the House Judiciary Committee approved legislation to address concerns surrounding our nation’s intelligence gathering programs. The bipartisan USA FREEDOM Act (H.R.

  • The House is leading the way with a full investigation into the Benghazi attacks

  • A thought on ending the strife

        I’ve been thinking about how to end the strife that’s been getting a lot of attention recently.
        No, I’m not talking about the fighting in Eastern Ukraine. I’m talking about the current hissing and spitting contest between the board of supervisors and the school board over the budget.

  • Study: America no longer a democracy

        There was a story a few weeks ago that breezed through the news cycle in about 24 hours – as most of them do – and left, probably without a lot of Americans paying any attention, or really thinking about it.
        It was a comprehensive study conducted by academics who spent years on interviews trying to determine where the power really is in this country.

    Human trafficking is an extensive problem worldwide. Even though many of these crimes occur outside of the public eye, the impacts are very real. According to the FBI, sex trafficking is the fastest growing business of organized crime and the third largest criminal enterprise in the world.

  • Working to put forth pro-growth policies that will stimulate our fragile economy

  • Like a refugee column

        Ukraine’s army, such as it is, provides a good illustration about why Ukraine is so vulnerable to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin’s efforts to pull it apart.

  • Cliven Bundy: A true GOP voter

    You know, I didn’t want to spend a column on that backward Nevada rancher who has made such a fool out of himself trying to graze his cattle for free on government-owned land.
        But he’s so typical of many American conservatives these days that I just couldn’t resist. If they were to truly pay attention here, many Republicans could learn a lesson about how to get back into the good graces of the modern American voter and finally win some national elections.

  • Restoring the Chesapeake Bay

    By Donald E. Lewis
    Goode

        I agree with the lawsuit against the EPA.
        I am concerned they do not mention the chemical companies involvement in the Chesapeake Bay pollution of the nitrogen and phosphorus. The Monsantos and other big rich chemical companies have over load farmers for years. The cow manure is not the cause as our government is trying to make us believe.
