  • My Turn: Make no mistake – President Trump is the enemy

    In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar, governor of Gaul, and his legion forded the Rubicon, the dividing line between Gaul and Italy, and marched on Rome, thus declaring civil war. Rome was the last of the free cities that had existed throughout the Mediterranean. They had vanished and finally only Rome, a republic, remained. Her people were free citizens of the republic, not subjects of a single ruler. The Roman Republic of a thousand years ended with Caesar’s invasion and the Roman Empire and rule of emperors – actually dictators – began. The founders of our republic drew in part from...

    It's disappointing that a national news commentator is so ignorant of basic economics. Then again this is BOR that I speak off. In a "gotcha" cheap shot attempt BOR tried to get Donald Trump to say taxes need to be raised to help with the deficit.. The Donald, much to his credit, tried to explain and educate that a robust economy will increase revenues dramatically. It is a basic concept that BOR can't seem to understand. Raising taxes actually decreases tax revenues because most economists believe the USA's federal tax rates are on the right side of the laffer curve...

    During the last city council meeting for 2013, Councilman Nick Mosby (D-District 7) introduced “Ban the Box,” a bill that would bar prospective employers from asking, in the initial job interview, if a job applicant has a record of criminal arrests or convictions. On Dec. 5, Mosby said omitting the criminal conviction-check for applications and interviews would help more Marylanders obtain employment and give them the opportunity to re-enter the workforce. “This legislation will provide a level playing field for people who have experienced criminal convictions in the past,” Mosby told the AFRO. “Many of our citizens have been convicted...

    Steve Jobs is dead. I'm saddened. Besides the grief his family and loved ones must feel, his death brings a loss to the world. He was a true innovator. Apple products and the technologies derived from them have reordered our way of living. While Jobs did not invent either the personal computer or the graphical interface operating system, the PCs and personal digital devices he created implement these in a way that has had an impact on society equal to that of the automobile, telephone, and antibiotic drugs. I used Apple products exclusively throughout my thirty years as a graphic...

McCain went on to say that anyone who let himself be used by Senator Reid so easily was hands down the biggest slut he’d ever seen. “What this man did,” claimed McCain on Fox News Sunday, “was to demonstrate how big a harlot he was on a public stage.

The open house has been a tradition for 93 years. Fortunately the house even comes with a "residence manager" so Palin didn't have to get down and dirty with...

The show immediately cut to commercial during its East Coast airing. After being attended to, Marie came to and told the crowd she fainted because she wasn’t breathing during her dance. “I forget to breathe. I’m fine thank you,” she said after getting back to her feet, drawing rousing applause from the audience.

    The immigration rallies across America showed that restrictionists aren't the only ones with strong views. But beyond podium pounding, compelling arguments are also necessary. As the Senate goes back this week to the task of crafting an immigration bill, it is crucial to focus on the right reasons for creating a guest-worker program and legalizing 12 million illegal immigrants. The case for immigration doesn't have to do as much with the Latino vote or civil rights. It should center instead on America's growth, competitiveness and dynamism. This month's rallies of thousands of people in many major cities raised the importance...

    Assorted Press Report Saddam Hussein died today of an apparent heart attack. Hussein's death, while in prison awaiting trial, has created a firestorm of criticism of the Bush administration. Senator Clinton has declared that "the American people will not tolerate the McDougaling of Saddam Hussein." CBS News claims it has, in its possession, papers showing a direct connection between Saddam's death and the Bush administration. CBS apparently paid top dollar for the documents, with one insider saying "No pajama blogger will be able to prove these are forgeries." Perversely, some in the news industry are holding their fire.

    A&E doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing. A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is on the increase - and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings. They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available weapon. The research is published in the British Medical Journal. The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all. They consulted 10 top chefs from...

Prediction: I'll get flamed as a "DU provacateur" for advocating that we go after somebody who killed 3000-plus people on American soil.

    Annals of Sid Sidney Blumenthal, the Erich von Stroheim of the Clinton administration, has published a memoir of his White House days--to generally poor reviews, most of them from newspapers and magazines ordinarily sympathetic to the author's politics. Of course, no such book should be assumed useless simply because its notices are stinko. Very often, in fact, it's the "worst" first-person accounts of recent political history that provide the best sort of fun: unintentionally embarrassing anecdotes that the clueless writer imagines are worth boasting about. Alas, however, even on these ironic terms, "The Clinton Wars" turns out to be an...
