Rasmussen: Opposition to Hobby Lobby decision highlights problem with mandates

Following the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision, one of the key talking points that emerged from enraged opponents of the ruling was: "My boss shouldn't be involved in my health care decisions." California State Senate candidate Sandra Fluke says on her official website that such a perspective is "common sense."

Williams: Do blacks need favors?

Earlier this month, the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act was celebrated. During the act's legislative debate, then-Sen. Hubert Humphrey, responding to predictions, promised, "I'll eat my hat if this leads to racial quotas." I don't know whether Humphrey got around to keeping his promise, but here's my question: Is it within the capacity of black Americans to make it in this society without the special favors variously called racial preferences, quotas, affirmative action and race-sensitive policies? What might a "yes" answer to that question assume and imply about blacks? Likewise, what would a "no ...

Cohen: A fight for Israel’s existence

Israel fought its first war, in 1948, against five Arab nations - Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan - as well as the Palestinians. In the prediction of the fairly new CIA, the outcome was never in doubt: "Without substantial outside aid in terms of manpower and material, they [the Jews] will be able to hold out no longer than two years." It has now been 66 years, but I fear that sooner or later, the CIA's conclusion could turn out to be right.

What a, uh, surprise.

Sowell: These stars unfortunately forgotten

Three recent sports biographies, two about baseball stars Stan Musial and Hank Greenberg, and another about boxing great Joe Louis, are not only interesting in themselves, but also recall an era that now seems as irretrievably past as the Roman Empire.

Morgan: Riding with Thelma and Louise

"It is what it is." The line may not have been original, but when a character played by Leonard DiCaprio in the movie "Blood Diamond" uttered it, it seared itself into my consciousness. It was one of the "Aha" moments that Oprah has popularized.

California law unlikely to pass here soon

The phone rang the other day and on the other end of the line was Gay Blade, the world's flaming liberal. Gay spends a lot of time trying to raise my sensitivity toward liberal issues. So far, Gay has not had a lot of luck.

Soaring beyond the heat

I'm finding it hard this week to work up the will to take the granddog out into the sultry still morning for a walk, however piteously she looks with that sad blue eye and that even sadder brown eye.

Latarski: Party depends on your cup of tea

With the announcement she is running for the Republican nomination for President, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachman appears to have emerged as the primary point person for the Tea Party and will make great waves during the campaign, assuming she does not continually step on her tongue.

McCoy: Moving mistakes

When did moving become so difficult? In college, I could pack everything I owned in my little MG and move from dorm to apartment to home with no sweat. Fifteen years later, I packed the barest of necessities in a new Volvo and moved to Tennessee. Well those easy days are gone. We just moved, and it took two huge trucks and more boxes than I could count. We packed, we packed some more, and then we got down to serious packing. It was time consuming to fill all those boxes, but I did learn some new packing tips that ...

Cushman: The students cheated in Atlanta

It was my freshman year of high school. My mother, sister and I had recently moved back to Carrollton, Ga. It may have been social studies, or it may have been biology, the subject does not matter, it was the life lesson that I learned that does.

Politics versus realities

It is hard to understand politics if you are hung up on reality. What matters in politics is what you can get the voters to believe, whether it bears any resemblance to reality or not.

We pay taxes on time, why can’t Ralston?

I own a vacation home in Dawson County - Big Canoe to be exact. Every year, we get a bill for property taxes and it is paid promptly. If it wasn't, I am afraid someone in the tax office would post my name on the court house door and that my neighbors in Big Canoe would be so horrified they wouldn't make eye contact when I waved at them.

A nation of laws a good thing

Our system of government and law is a messy, awful/wonderful thing, simultaneously wondrous and puzzling.

Cushman: Fourth an exceptional celebration

My earliest Fourth of July memories include fireworks, flags, barbecue and parades. Not watching parades, being in them.
