Hillary’s “Yeah But” Defense

TownHall Latest columns - 36 min 20 sec ago
Long ago when I was a youth I remember my father telling me that a person with real character admitted to his mistakes and took his lumps. The thought of lying about or denying something I was responsible for should never even cross my mind. It was just the way most kids were raised back then. If you screwed up and you were caught you stepped forward to admit the wrong-doing, even if it meant there would be some lumps involved. 2016-02-07T00:01:00-05:00 2016-02-08T11:35:05Z D.W. Wilber

On the 26th of this month, legendary singer/song-writer and iced-cool customer Johnny Cash would have celebrated his 85th birthday.

Relief of Poverty: Four Centuries of Futility

TownHall Latest columns - 36 min 20 sec ago
More than 400 years ago, the British adopted the Poor Law system, under which local communities were made responsible for the relief of poverty. For the next four centuries the Poor Laws were amended again and again, as the following argument went to and fro: Was the system providing necessary relief or was it in various ways interfering with the natural workings of the labor market by subsidizing idleness and encouraging indolence. 2016-02-06T11:31:00-05:00 2016-02-08T11:35:05Z John C.
