National Sympathy Should Correlate to Common Sense

By: Paul Lyle | Blog: Closing Argument

     IF THERE IS A NATIONAL SYMPATHY RESERVOIR for Americans who accidently cross the Iranian border while hiking or pursuing other recreational or even business-related endeavors, it's about to be tapped yet again for three more of our young people.      The Associated Press reports today that Iran has accused three detained Americans of spying Monday, despite a U. S.

Power to the People?

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

It's been another one of those weeks where I get caught up with my life. Most notably, West Texas Comic Con came and went and was a great success. In the meantime, some nut shot up Fort Hood, health care reform passed the House, and another crooked Republican Hale County Commissioner got arrested.

Barack Obama and the Rebuilding of the Wall of Tyranny

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

World leaders celebrated the 20-year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.  The President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, was conspicuously absent from the festivities. Obama turned down a speaking role at the event.  It was fitting and proper that the sitting US President should speak at this event, as the United States played a vital role in the fall of the Wall, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and freedom for hundreds of millions in Eastern Europe. Obama said he did not have time to attend.  He proffered the excuse that he is preparing for a meeting in Asia.

Comic Con Aftermath

By: scottslemmons | Blog: Hero Sandwich

Well, I didn't go to the Comic Con. I have a good excuse -- I live five hours away. But I'm wishing I got to go now, 'cause the pictures in the A-J's Spotted section look like everyone had a lot of fun. Looks like the folks in the costumes were out in force.

I Thought Crotch Was a Body Part

By: Paul Lyle | Blog: Closing Argument

UNTIL I WAS ABOUT 15-YEARS-OLD, I thought my crotch was a body part. This impression began to form when I was about five years old, maybe earlier, but I'm not sure of my memory when I think back further than that. I think I can remember a few things that happened to me when I was two, but that could be a false positive.

One Less AMA Member

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

After 41 years as a member of the American Medical Association, I resigned my membership last Thursday.  As it took me many minutes to reach an AMA membership representative, I assume many other physicians were doing the same. Most physicians oppose ObamaCare.  Fewer than 20% of physicians are AMA members.  The majority of the AMA members are young idealistic physicians who are still in training.  The American Medical Association does not represent the will of US physicians and surgeons. The Wall Street Journal severely
