America Still Has a Future

Adolf Hitler once walked here. Dead bodies were stepped over here. Cities were burned to a crisp here. The Berlin Wall once stood here. I’ve always described myself as a short term-pessimist but a long-term optimist. The long march of history shows that once great civilizations have collapsed into the

There are some classic Ronald Reagan moments. The most memorable is probably his “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” from his speech at the Brandenburg Gate near the Berlin Wall on June 12, 1987. But his most succinct comment was in San Diego, November 3, 1980: “Aw shut up.” Reagan

Please! No More Bush Presidents

Jeb Bush is considering running for President in 2016. Please spare us. It’s just what the Republicans need. The second Bush barely eked out his 2000 and 2004 wins. It was his policies that created the Obama refrain, “It was Bush’s fault.” And much of it was, although the fault

Good News: According to a New Poll Only One in Seven Thinks the End of the World is Near

I’m encouraged that only about 15 percent of people surveyed in a recent poll believe the end of the world is around the corner. For hundreds of years people have been assured by prophecy writers that the end of the world was on the horizon. Every time there’s an earthquake,

The Truth Behind the Attack on Newt

The latest Newt-Reagan flap has me boiling. I’ve been in the debate business a long time, and if it’s one thing I’ve learned it’s this: Tell the truth about your opponent. As much as you might believe your opponent’s position is wacko, don’t lie about it or misrepresent it. It’s
