  • Government is broken, but there is another way to heal what ails us

    Government is broken, but there is another way to heal what ails us

  • Singapore, a land without entitlements

    Singapore, a land without entitlements
    SINGAPORE -- While the U.S. unemployment rate "dropped" to 7.7 percent last month -- a figure even The Washington Post acknowledged was due "in large part because the labor force fell by 350,000" -- here in this modern and prosperous city-state of...

    The second debate: Obama wins on style, Romney on substance

  • Immigration deformed

    Immigration deformed
    There's the story of a woman with five kids who was asked: If she had to do it all over again, would she have five children? "Yes," she said, "just not these five." That's the way I feel about the immigration "reform" bill introduced by the Senate's...

    A nun quietly rebukes 'I built that'
    — Let's talk about the other speech. No, not Bill Clinton's 48-minute stemwinder to the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night that was so mesmerizing even Republicans praised it. Instead, let's offer a little nod of affirmation for...

  • Living like kings on food stamps

    Living like kings on food stamps
    Happy Independence Day. I am not talking about the one we celebrate on July 4 but the other that happens each month in grocery stores across the United States. Let me paint the picture. My husband and I work 40-plus hours a week and stop into the...
  • In tough times, elected officials ignore the needs of the poor

    Some may be shocked by Steve Kilar's recent story highlighting the fact that one in four Baltimore residents live in poverty, and that many more struggle just above the outdated official poverty line ("Baltimore's poverty rate unchanged at 1 in 4...
  • Romney video raises the question: Would he be the president for all Americans?

    Romney video  raises the question: Would he be the president for all Americans?
    If 47 percent of American voters weren't in the bag for President Barack Obama before, they certainly are now. The video of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney writing off nearly half of the American population as layabouts with no feeling of...
  • Poverty in the U.S. can't be compared to Europe's

    I question some of the assertions in a recent letter to the editor ("Ehrlich's talk of Obama's radicalism strains credulity," July 25). For example, the writer claims that "European social democracy" has provided "lower poverty" than found in the...
