The way it usually works out, organized labor is aligned with the Democrats, and big business is closely connected to the GOP. And it is true that the Dems still march in lockstep with those who are the employees, by and large. However, it’s both Republicans and Democrats who are slugging it…

In his opinion column, “Where Solar Arrays Shouldn’t Go Is As Critical As Where They Do Go” (December 2020), Lee Epstein of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation asserts that we should take care to locate solar energy fields only where they are appropriate.

Do you ever get an overwhelming sense of impending doom?

As Major League Baseball (MLB) opened its season to sunny skies with every team playing on the same day since 1937, the game’s executives seem intent on beheading the golden goose with the woke ax of the Cancel Culture.

You may read about them in the newspaper or see them along local roads, plowing snow in the winter or patching potholes in the spring.

The COVID-19 pandemic demands a collective global response of the sort that has few parallels in human history. The 132 million confirmed COVID-19 cases worldwide and 3 million deaths are likely underestimates. More contagious variants have emerged, causing an alarming surge in cases. Viruse…

With every day that passes, Democrats are taking a step closer to becoming the party of drugs, cartels and human traffickers --a grave threat to America’s national security.

This week, on the basis of whole-cloth lies, major corporations went to political war with the state of Georgia. The lies at issue revolved around Georgia’s new voter law, characterized by both Stacey Abrams and President Joe Biden as a new form of Jim Crow. What do these dastardly new voter…

A Supreme Court case challenging the requirement for men, but not women, to register with the Selective Service System for a possible military draft is forcing Congress to make a choice it has been avoiding for decades: End draft registration, or expand it to young women as well as young men.

Did you know that in 2018, 275 high school boys ran the 400 meter faster than the lifetime best of Olympic Team USA member and world-record-holding sprinter Allyson Felix? It’s a fact that perfectly illustrates why we need to ensure only biological females are eligible to participate in wome…

When we constructed the interstate system, we simply bypassed much of our country’s intricate variety. Still, in spite of losing this national character, there are those who get their kicks motoring the monotonous I-ways of America. They find a comfortable routine in the coast to coast, bord…

So far, the defining word of the Biden era is “trillion.”

In 1968, Simon and Garfunkel wanted to know where the Yankee Clipper Joe DiMaggio had gone. Over half a century later, the suits of Major League Baseball (MLB) have to be wondering the same for their younger fan base.

Nine minutes and 29 seconds. That’s how long Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer now on trial for killing George Floyd, pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck last Memorial Day. Floyd was handcuffed, face down on the pavement, and not resisting as he gasped for air, begging for …

It doesn’t rank as the most dangerous country in the world – that would be Afghanistan, with Syria a close second – but the United States is in pretty dismal company when it comes to the so-called Global Peace Index.

President Joe Biden is so committed to bipartisan cooperation and fact-based governance that he’s launched an ignorant and incendiary attack on the new Georgia voting law.

Since the death of George Floyd, our esteemed media, as well as their Democratic allies, have suggested that Floyd’s alleged murder is representative of broader American white supremacy, that Floyd’s experience with law enforcement is indicative of how American police pose an existential thr…

When a lost soul attempts to reclaim himself in the American way, it becomes, far too often ... we all know this ... another mass murder.

There was a testy Twitter exchange recently between Bernie Sanders, the socialist Democratic U.S. senator from Vermont, and eccentric billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

As we prepare to celebrate Easter, we see bunnies, colorful eggs and baskets.

Jim Crow is not a real person. He’s a fictional character invented by a white guy for demeaning performances in minstrel shows. But for generations of Black Americans, Jim Crow is very real and ever present in their lives.

Well, the principled stand Democrats took against Congress trying to overturn duly certified elections lasted all of a month or two.

How much do you value your right to vote?

The steadfastness and credibility of any democracy depends on the fidelity of its elections. The legitimacy of government is contingent upon the people’s trust. The basis of that trust is transparent, fair elections that should never be a partisan issue.

The massacres in Boulder, Colorado, with 10 killed, and in metro Atlanta, with eight killed, are just two more instances of senseless gun violence enabled by the NRA, gun manufacturers and the corrupt politicians they control. Here is a short reminder of some others, for any who might need it:

In recent weeks, U.S. automakers have been hit hard by a global shortage of semiconductors. It’s the latest problem stemming from America’s over-reliance on a wide range of industrial imports. With the COVID-19 pandemic having disrupted global supply chains, U.S. automakers are now scramblin…

The Unitarian Universalist Association joins leaders across the country in decrying the recent surge of hate crimes against Asians and Asian Americans. In this last year, violence and verbal harassment targeting this community have been exacerbated by anti-Asian rhetoric and blame.

This week, a white man shot to death eight people in Atlanta-area spas, six of them Asian American. According to Atlanta police, the man said he was targeting brothels and blamed the women for his alleged sex addiction. The gunman stated that he had visited two of the spas before and had pla…

The 2020 election set a lot of records, including for Gen Z participation. Nearly 160 million Americans, almost two-thirds of the estimated eligible voter age population, cast their ballots for their candidate of choice — an increase of more than five percent from 2016’s election.

Last year, we began what was supposed to be a short lockdown to flatten the curve of COVID-19-related hospitalizations. It’s a year later and we are still mostly locked down. This past year has been particularly hard on young adults, according to a story in The Wall Street Journal titled “Pa…

It’s better than nothing, but the fact that President Joe Biden is holding his first news conference of his presidency after two months is no big deal, other than for the White House reporters who get to show off asking their adversarial questions.

Winter felt long, hard, cold. We felt trapped. The tiny virus that besieged us more than a year ago, still looms over us, threatening to infect us or infect those whom we care about.

As we observe the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization’s proclaimed COVID-19 pandemic, one gratuitous prediction failed to materialize.

This academic term I’m teaching my college courses fully online; a year into the global pandemic of COVID-19, and it’s not safe to public health for classes to be held face-to-face.

The end of the pandemic in the U.S. is in sight. The Covid-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have proven to be outstandingly effective at protecting recipients from coronavirus and they are also safe.

Poor Joe Biden. It was his misfortune to inherit one of the technological marvels of our time.

This week, President Biden’s military declared its first war ... on Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Carlson had committed the great sin of pointing out the oddity of the fact that the Biden White House had been promoting brand-new uniforms for pregnant soldiers, rather than America’s military …

An event revealing a great deal about the kind of government Americans want occurred this March, when members of the U.S. Congress voted on the American Rescue Plan. This legislation, staunchly supported by the Democrats, provided federal funding for the provision of life-saving vaccines, th…

Biden administration health official Rochelle Walensky announced last week that vaccinated Americans can visit with others who are vaccinated in small groups at home. But when Walensky was asked about visiting grandchildren, she said no, unless the kids are local. Even vaccinated people must…
