Who Is The President of Switzerland? ... Ask one of your know-it-all friends, the one who has all the answers when watching ‘Jeopardy,’ who’s the current President of Switzerland (A question I borrowed from a William F. Buckley article of 60 years ago). Odds are, they don’t know. (Read the Article) (Have a Comment?)
Iran Will Export Oil, Why Can’t We? ... As part of the new nuclear agreement, the Iranian energy industry will be allowed to export its oil. If only America was so lucky. As toni shingly, America is the only major crude oil country in the world with a self-imposed ban on exportation -- a restriction that has been in place for over 40 years.

Remember Alison Parker and Adam Ward, Not the Killer ... WDBJ-TV Virginia television reporters Alison Parker and Adam Ward were executed while doing their jobs. They were good people who were successful at what they did and loved their work. The insane exreporter who murdered them on live television killed himself.

Shielding Wall Street from the Ravages of Bigotry ... Phil Gramm, the former right-wing senator from Texas, has surprised me. I assumed he had zero charitable instincts. In office, he kept trying to kill safety net programs, such as food assistance: "We’re the only nation in the world where all our poor people are fat,” Gramm smirked back in 1981.

North Korean Gambit ... You can be forgiven for not keeping up with everything happening in North Korea. Poor and isolated, its people malnourished and virtual slaves of the state, North Korea produces nothing of any value to any nation – except for certain military exports that are used by a small number of malicious regimes.

Is America Headed For Nothing At All? ... Our congress should immediately put on hold any H-2A agricultural visas and H-2B non-agricultural visas. People are brought in from other countries on these visas to work for as much as 20 - 45% cheaper labor than our own American people. Business owners need to invest in America. They need to hire the American people. (See Page 12, August 27, 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
Ethanol: A Love Story ... It’s a timeless story of teenage romance: pledging love, abandoning reason, rebelling against authority. No, this isn’t the plot of a John Hughes movie. Instead, I’m talking about Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s love affair with ethanol. (See Page 12, August 27, 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
The Mullahs, the Hermit, and Why Hillary’s E-Mails Matter ... Imagine you’ve invented a device – the Universal Dog Detector and Locator – that tracks dogs and cats, and does so remotely. It’s so sensitive, it can track every dog and cat on the planet – by name. CIA finds out and they buy it from you, and hire you to keep it running. They stamp everything associated with the device ‘Top Secret’ and warn you not to tell anyone about it. You’re not sure why the location of dogs should be all that special, but you go along (they’re paying you, after all). (Read the Article) (Have a Comment?)
Time to Dial-Down Our Fear of Automation ... A new industrial revolution is coming. American factory workers will soon be replaced by robots, threatening the economic wellbeing of future generations -- or so we're told. Fear not. Far from dismantling the American workforce, new labor-saving technologies are instead poised to serve as vital engines of job-creation and economic growth for years to come -- if U.S. lawmakers take advantage of them.

President Jimmy Carter Is Still Working and Work Will Save This Nation ... America is only as good as our workers and doers. Dreamers are critical. Faith is vital. However, faith and dreams without works are dead. Everywhere I travel these days I see Nigerians, Kenyans, Egyptians, Asians and of course Hispanics doing jobs all over the United States.

Hiroshima: 70 Years - What Can We Learn? ... We just marked the 70th anniversary of the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These were horrific events, causing the deaths of more than 130,000 people (perhaps as many as 250,000). In light of fears that recent decisions concerning Iran’s nuclear weapon program have increased the chances of war, even nuclear war, is there something we might learn by looking at the decision to use atomic weapons, something it might tell us about the decisions to be faced by a future president – or prime minister of Israel?

Health Happy In Ameria ... Medical care is a lifelong necessity to a happy normal life. Here are the solutions to solving the medical care crisis in our country. (See Page 8, August 13, 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
Running on Greed ... Donald Trump alienated millions of voters with his ugly attacks on Mexican immigrants and John McCain’s war record. But he rocketed to the top of GOP presidential polls anyway. Is Trump’s racism driving this surge? Maybe. (See Page 8, August 13, 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
Is O’Malley an Environmental Champion? ... Commanding the backing of only 2 percent of Democrats in national polls, Martin O’Malley isn’t exactly a big contender in his quest to become the party’s presidential nominee. But like the rest of the growing number of hopefuls, the former Maryland governor is building his campaign around a narrative. (See Page 8, August 13, 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
Israel, Iran and Counter Value Targeting ... The President’s agreement with Iran’s has been endorsed by the UN Security Council (UNSC), before Congress could review it. The agreement ends sanctions on Iran (already accomplished at the UN); the agreement also effectively kills a key point of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty: preventing the spread of enrichment technology. Iran will be allowed to enrich without any restrictions in 15 years. (Note: 15 years ago the World Trade Center was hit; not that long ago…) (Read the Article) (Have a Comment?)
