History is change. Unless the United States does something radically different or unless the Chinese miracle of operating a booming economy in a repressive society implodes, the question is when China will surpass us economically. Not whether.
Often, we forget about our most sacred and vulnerable population -- those that have given the biggest part of them to the cause of freedom. Maybe it's time that our nation takes a cold hard look itself. Who are we? Who have we become?
The men and women who risk their lives and fight to defend us overseas should not have to fight to defend their families at home at the same time. Their sole focus should be on completing the mission and returning home safely.
Why should that question be asked unless someone can show the all-volunteer force (AVF) is not working and sustainable? A recently published book with...
Succumbing to the fears that have plagued our nation, the president and Congress once again placed an ill-conceived national security measure ahead of tried-and-true principles of civil liberty.
House Republicans should immediately vote a clean continuing resolution and raise the debt ceiling. Then Congress must get on with addressing the country's real needs which are far more than Obamacare.

Until a more vigorous enemy turns up, the overblown terrorist enemy used to justify the vastly profitable surveillance state, with selective scary news leaks, is all the military-industrial complex has got.
It's incumbent on all of us to get involved and support our soldiers whether or not we agree with our country's military actions, whether or not we have service members in our own families. We must demand answers and options.
How do we fix something that is broken beyond our control? On the other hand, doing nothing is no longer an option. One of my favorite sayings is, "politics it too important to leave to the politicians."
Tattoos went mainstream long after I started putting orthotics in my comfort shoes, and I sit firmly entrenched in the generation who think they can create a bad first impression -- with us and with citizens of other nations who they encounter.
