Arizona Calling: How Law 1070 Pushes Immigration Reform to the Brink

Upon the launching of my web site in the early months of 2000, a 3,000-word screed from a concerned Arizona law officer was posted on its now defunct Sound-Off page. It emphatically stated that if in the following decade the United States government didn’t do something about the state’s “sieve …

Greed: Humanity’s Case Against Financial Reform

The principle hazard of the columnist trade is its guarantees of repetition. The aim is to take a fresh angle to arguments or unfolding current events and spin them in a readable and oft times, hopefully, convincing manner. We do none of that here. Repetition to the point of revulsion …

Karzai, Musharraf, Netanyahu: With Friends Like These…

Rumors of Afghani President Hamid Karzai’s drug use in the wake of his inflammatory anti-American comments are highly suspect.

Reality Check: Health Care U.S.A. – A Half-Century of Fear, Morality, Lobbying and Defeat Gets Its Vote
