Elizabeth Warren: “We Are Not Resting Until at Least 50 Senators Are [Millionaire] Women” »

Elizabeth Warren is out selling herself and her new book, Fighting Chance, and her headline du jour is “We Are Not Resting Until at Least 50 Senators Are Women” I’m not sure why she thinks that would solve her biggest beef, which is, in her words: “Let’s just be real clear — the game...

Nobel Peace Prize: FAIL »

The news that Malala Yousafzai missed out on the Nobel Peace Prize should not be a great surprise. Considering upon whom the committee has bestowed the honor in recent years, it would have been more surprising had they proven themselves able to recognize a peace monger when she’s right in front of them.

New York Times Wrong about Government Childcare Delivery »

When it comes to government-run childcare and preschool, the delivery is worth all the labor pains—so says University of Massachusetts, Amherst, economics professor emerita Nancy Folbre in her recent New York Times article. Folbre’s sentiment reflects that of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who insists America has an early childcare and education “crisis” that...

Call Me Uncharitable, But... »

... I have little sympathy for people who complain that they are suffering hardship because government isn’t giving them enough aid. I was reading this story about the possibility that the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program might run out of money due to the federal government shutdown.

Government-Run Preschool Is a Dead End, Not a Lifeline »

Greater economic equality requires the “lifeline” of more government-funded preschool for disadvantaged children, says Nobel Prize–winning economist James Heckman in his New York Times editorial last week.

When releasing the “Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed that America has an early child care and education “crisis” that threatens our economy.

Life, Liberty, and the Threat of Abortion Ambivalence »

I happened to catch the headline on AOL News the other day promoting an on-line Huffington Post Live interview with 27-year-old porn star Stoya. The seven-year veteran of adult entertainment was remarkably poised, even if unsurprisingly candid, but her comments raised more than a few interesting questions about life and liberty from a broader...

Same-Sex Marriage and Individual Rights »

The United States government was founded on the principle of protecting individual rights. The Declaration of Independence says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights...” People have rights as individuals, and do not derive their rights from...

Prince of Peace »

As we enter Christians’ Holy Week, which culminates with Easter, the day of Jesus’ resurrection and the beginning of God’s new creation, it’s an apt time to reflect on Christ’s lasting teachings. Prior to Jesus’ incarnation, God had directly communicated His Law through the Ten Commandments. Number 6 reads “Thou shalt not kill.” Of...

The Seamy Side of the Military »

The U.S. military is increasingly putting a feminine face forward in its ads and PR (for example, the bright smiling faces flanking Mrs. Obama at the Oscars). The Navy’s outreach to women proclaims: What’s it like being a woman in today’s Navy? Challenging. Exciting. Rewarding. But above all, it’s incredibly empowering. That’s because the...
