TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
Last week, more than a hundred Nigerian students, girls between 15 and 18 years of age, were kidnapped by the al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists of Boko Haram. Most of the girls are still being held. That should be a big story, don’t you think? 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Cliff May

MD Attorney General Says Military Not a “Real Job”

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
Apparently government bureaucracy counts as a “real job” as opposed to serving in the Armed Forces. You heard it correctly. Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler, who is running for Governor of Maryland, said that he had held a real job by being Attorney General of Maryland, as opposed to his opponent who had “only” served in Iraq and is also the currently serving Lt. Gov. of Maryland. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Larry Provost

The Press Never Calls

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
My telephone is not ringing off the hook. No intriguing or inquiring emails have arrived on my computer. Yet, on Friday, a document drop from the Clinton Library revealed that years ago, in the 1990s, I was at the very heart of the "vast right-wing conspiracy." 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Emmett Tyrrell

GOP Future: From Tea to Pot?

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
Polling numbers and political maneuverings are increasingly confirming what I first reported months ago. The tea party movement is no longer the large dominant force in the GOP that it was in 2010 or even 2012. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Matt Towery

A Legal Way To Kill?

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
When President Obama decided sometime during his first term that he wanted to be able to use unmanned aerial drones in foreign lands to kill people -- including Americans -- he instructed Attorney General Eric Holder to find a way to make it legal -- despite the absolute prohibition on governmental extra-judicial killing in federal and state laws and in the Constitution itself. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Judge Andrew Napolitano

Financial Bureaucrats on Easy Street, with Consumers and Taxpayers Paying the Bill

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
So what’s the rationale for overpaid bureaucrats? Defenders of the status quo claim that high pay is necessary to attract skilled professionals. Needless to say, that’s not true. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Daniel J. Mitchell

Culture Challenge of the Week: A Lack of Vision

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s the hallmark question of childhood. We ask wide-eyed little kids, expecting answers like “pilot,” “astronaut” or “firefighter.” It’s not a bad question, but when it’s the only one we ask, kids end up believing their identity belongs to their occupation. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Rebecca Hagelin

Who Needs Laws?

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
The problem of Congress passing and presidents signing vague laws that leave much to interpretation from courts and bureaucrats is nothing new. The Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law in 1990, has been used relentlessly to file frivolous lawsuits and extort untold millions from American businesses. But the ADA was written imprecisely, deliberately leaving the fleshing out of the intentions of Congress and the law to others. As bad as that is, we’ve entered a time when the clear wording of laws is subject to change not through the legislative process or the courts, but by temporary politicians’ personal thoughts or feelings on a given issue. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Derek Hunter

How Obamacare Could Kill Your Kids, and Their Kids Too

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
It would be shame if the wonder drugs we rely on to help the elderly, the sick and our children stopped working wonders because a parochial and partisan prejudice against profits by liberals was allowed to outweigh the greater good. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z John Ransom

Big Government Hates Personal Success

Sure, Wall Street wants more of your money… So does the Government. Which one do you think is a bigger threat to the average American? It’s almost like the Government hates it when someone gets too successful.

Rhetoric vs. Reality on ObamaCare

TownHall Latest columns - 23 min 2 sec ago
Once again, President Obama has felt the need to come out swinging in defense of his signature health care law. Countless times since the rollout, and again last week, he proclaimed that ObamaCare is working, called on Democrats to defend it, and chastised conservatives for their opposition that he believes is entirely political. But people should look beyond Obama’s rhetoric and consider reality – ObamaCare is bad medicine for America. 2014-04-24T00:01:00-04:00 2014-04-24T10:35:03Z Akash Chougule
