Juxtapose the contents of this March 9 letter with the 1936 United States Supreme Court case of U.S. v. Curtis-Wright Export Corporation.
Seen as a whole, the current federal attitude towards marijuana can truly be described as "doublethink." There are so many contradictions in the government's attitude that they are indeed hard to accurately count.
Jeb Bush gets early style points for taking on his critics about his support for comprehensive immigration reform, perhaps realizing he has already lost the Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Mark Levin talk radio primaries anyway.
Bibi: Hi, guys, we've got to wrap up our plans; you know what the polls are saying.
Yvet: What the hell do I care what the Poles think?
Bibi: No, you idiot! The polls! The polls that just came out!
None of this stuff -- irritating as each item may be with regard to how the Clintons do things -- is actually important enough to threaten her candidacy. There is nothing, so far at least, that makes for a compelling, specific storyline.
I am often asked why I remain a member of the Republican Party. My stock answer has become that it's the party of Lincoln and Eisenhower and I would like very much to return it to similar hands and am working, however infinitesimally well, to do so. Leaving the party would accomplish nothing in that regard. I also contend that there are still sane and sober people -- in the minority to be sure -- remaining in my party.
A focus on the Middle East, Russia and East Europe, and East Asia is always warranted. But it would be a mistake for the United States to ignore events in its own hemisphere, especially as we've seen what happens when a problem isn't addressed until it is too late.
Walker's attack on state universities may have been a naked attempt to curry favor with his party's right wing. And, when it backfired, he backpedaled -- saying that the altered mission statement was merely a "drafting error."
There have been too many funerals of late, too many funerals for people of color and people with mental illness.
I wrote a book about Obama's conception of American identity, as well as his depiction of our country's values and history. Although in my research I came across countless examples of him talking about America, I've never heard him do so in as profound a way as he did in Selma this Saturday. The president subtly rejected the Giuliani approach.
There are lots of ways to hold Obama's feet to the fire, to make the case to the American people that there is no acceptable deal with Iran. Instead, the No Deal 47 are rewriting the constitutional, historical and political norms about foreign policy fights.
ODS (Obama Derangement Syndrome) won't work out any better for Republicans in 2016 than ABB (Anyone But Bush) did for Democrats in 2004. Voters still expect you to stand for something not just against whatever the president of the opposing party is doing.
Buoyed by the amazing success 47 U.S. Senators had with their Open Letter to Iran's leaders, Senator Ted Cruz writes one all by himself to all the wor...
The Republican Senators, by sending this letter, have shown a marked preference not only for military confrontation, but military confrontation with the risk of gravely accelerating the nuclear arms race. It imperils a whole region in the Middle East already reeling from violent extremism.
Are those who signed this letter willing to send more young American men and women to die on yet another battlefield in the Middle East when there is an option for peace without military conflict? Apparently so.
President Obama should be commended for taking on the brokerage industry for ripping off multitudes of 401(k) participants.
