In 1945, Austrian physician René Spitz investigated an orphanage that took extra care to make sure its infants were not infected with disease. The children received first-class nutrition and medical care, but they were barely touched, to minimize their contact with germs. The approach was a…

It is well beyond time to take redistricting out of the hands of state legislators.

The state legislative and congressional district boundaries first drawn in 2011 by Republican lawmakers and redrawn in 2016 after a successful court challenge remain under litigation today. And it is not beyond the…

In typical lawlessness, former President Barack Obama issued the unconstitutional DACA executive order, after proclaiming he had no right to do so.

The Deferred Act for Childhood Arrivals supposedly covers around 800,000 children brought here illegally by their parents, but also those who…

War is idiotic.

All of these countries where we have fought major wars ... we are now trading partners with them and in some cases allies.

I am talking about Germany, Japan, Vietnam and Korea.

It is really silly to go to these wars and then turn around and become best buddies. It is like the…
