The Failure of the Two-State Solution

Of all the things wrong with the Middle East today, the one thing that has the Obama administration up in arms is not the Ayatollah chanting, “Death to America.” Instead, it is Benjamin Netanayahu’s election statement that the situation on the ground will have to change in order for him to be willing to support the creation a Palestinian state. Netanyahu’s clarification that he supports a two-state solution, however, was not good enough for the Obama Administration. Over the years, society has developed a blind devotion to the idea that the two-state solution is the answer to the problems between Israel and its neighbors.  However,...

Why We Can, and Must, Cut Spending

Washington insiders constantly tell us that if we cut the federal government’s domestic budget, Armageddon will come to America. But is there really nothing that can be cut? For example, the Inspector General for the Social Security Administration said that the SSA paid $1.111 million to dead people, and the government also made $125 billion in improper payments.

The Role of a Supreme Court Justice

Recently, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has found herself in the news more often than seems appropriate for a justice of the Supreme Court. Aside from being less than sober at the State of Union Address, she has also recently said there would not be enough women on the court until all nine justices were women. But, perhaps the worst was when she commented that she believes American are ready for gay marriage—when the court was still hearing the case. If a justice wants to play a roll in public policy, they are in the wrong branch...

Sons of…

Last week the History Channel ran a three part, six hour, miniseries entitled “Sons of Liberty” the show sometimes took factual departures, but nevertheless it was an entertaining take on the early part of the Revolution. After watching the series, as a conservative I can not help but think of how we have gone from courageous men such as Sam and John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Joseph Warren who would lose his life in the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775 after he was shot in the head, to the leaders we have today. Today we have...
