By throwing her hat into the Democratic presidential primary, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth would be doing a great service to the nation, party and its front-runner Hillary Clinton, who has been having a tough go of it of late.
America should be wary about the virtual love affair between the Obama administration and the non-democracies of the Arab world in which our Secretary of State has functioned asthe matchmaker, running hat in hand to negotiate a “coalition."
I was sorry to see that Tom Laughlin, the creator of the iconic “Billy Jack” movie franchise, passed away recently. Very few film heroes fought social and economic injustice the way Laughlin’s fictional former Green Beret did.
Calling the indescribable circus underway in the nation’s Capitol a “shutdown” violates the purposes of the English language to adequately describe actions attributable to adults supposed to be leaders, all paid and more than adequately supported by taxpayers.
Today the Affordable Care Act became official. States opened enrollment on exchanges for private insurance, with coverage slated to effectively begin January 1. It’s done, it’s real, it happened — even with our government temporarily shuttered.

If you enjoy revisionist history, demagogic lectures and fairy tales, believe that Big Government Democratic legislation since the 1930s will result in the United States becoming a socialist, fascist or communist country, long for the days when economic royalists and robber barons, past and present, know what’s best for the economy, and that Americans should swim or sink without a government safety net, you’re probably a believer in Thomas Jefferson’s philosophy of “… government is best which governs least…”
There’s a kernel of truth to the notion that Republicans lost a very winnable presidential election because of poor PR.
Clueless Mitt Romney, of 47 percent infamy, certainly was no match for President Obama and the Democratic communications machine -- though the commander-in-chief did make it interesting during his debate snooze.
