Today's Opinions

  • Seeking a more transparent Federal Reserve

    Don’t you want to know how the federal government spends and leverages your taxpayer dollars? Odds are that the answer is a resounding “YES.” However, the Federal Reserve, the nation’s central bank and an independent federal agency, has been subject to very little scrutiny. That shouldn’t be the case, especially given that the Federal Reserve, or the Fed, is responsible for monetary policy decisions that affect every American.

     

  • The absolute absurdity of Trump’s campaign

        As this was written, it looked as though Donald Trump might lose the Wisconsin primary to Ted Cruz, thereby giving some hope to the “Never Trump” forces in the Republican Party.
        Regardless of what happened, the stop-Trump effort may well be too little, too late. The party could indeed be on the way to the most idiotic decision it’s made in its recently troubled history.

  • Trump is as much of a fool as Obama

        Donald Trump spent months declaring that he’s going to make America great again, without telling us much about how he intends to accomplish this. I don’t think this has been part of an effort to conceal anything. I’m sure Mr. Trump doesn’t know, himself, what he will do.

  • Veterans deserve choice

    Our veterans have done their duty to serve us. It is our now our duty to serve them. That’s the purpose of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA). While many veterans receive quality care from these VA facilities, we still hear horror stories in some parts of the country of long wait times, poor service, and, in some cases, downright negligence by health care providers. This should never be the case, and Congress is responsible for holding the VA accountable.

  • Cuba: Obama’s foreign policy gem

        It was wonderful to see Air Force One land in Havana, Cuba, and watch the President of the United States depart the plane and launch an historic visit to the long-punished island nation so close to us.
        President Barack Obama has long understood that our nation’s juvenile attitude toward Cuba is an embarrassing relic of the Cold War that needs to be changed.
