Clinton makes Republican horde look organized

    You  might as well make yourselves comfortable.

Citizen-Journalist Fined for Telling the Truth

    Vera Scroggins of Susquehanna County, Pa., was found to be in contempt of court, Thursday, and fined $1,000.

    Her offense? She tells the truth.

    Truth is something that apparently has bypassed the court of Judge Kenneth W. Seamans, who retired at the end of 2014, but came out of retirement to handle this case.

About Loretta Lynch

    When she takes the oath of office as attorney general, after coming close to breaking records on how long it took to give her the courtesy of a vote, Loretta Lynch will become the first African-American woman to serve in that position.

    And while it's easy to forget, to take such "firsts" as simply belated, which this one is, it is also deserving of celebration.

Zombies of 2016

    Last week, a zombie went to New Hampshire and staked its claim to the Republican presidential nomination. Well, OK, it was actually Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey. But it's pretty much the same thing.

Why vets' health care never works

    The men and women who serve in the military protect both the United States' security and its values, including political liberty, free enterprise and individual choice.

    How strange, then, that when their time in uniform ends, we thank them for their service and turn them over to the Department of Veterans Affairs, which epitomizes centralized bureaucracy.

Scott Walker and a very strange moment for GOP politics and policy

    There was a small political earthquake Wednesday on the right side of the political spectrum, as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), who has had some nice things said about him by some very rich people, said something on immigration that likely displeased those same people. On Glenn Beck's radio show, Walker said the following:

On the Internet, Nobody Knows You're a Fraud

    There's been some tense back-and-forth over the Canadian mother who said she had stopped opposing vaccinations after all seven of her kids came down with whooping cough.

Democrats in 2016: Why not Joe?

    Admittedly, it's early. But it's still amusing to see the difference between how Republicans and Democrats are lining up for 2016. No fewer than 19 -- count 'em: 19! -- Republican self-declared candidates showed up in New Hampshire last week to strut their stuff. They'd no sooner left the Granite State than Hillary Clinton showed up -- as the lone Democratic candidate. There's the difference: Republicans have too many candidates and Democrats have too few.
