A Necessary Lesson for Dems
December 11, 2013: A new book by historian James Oakes comes just in time. Freedom National: The Destruction of Slavery in the United States, 1861-1865 brings us an important new interpretation for the crucial events of our American Civil War. Focusing less on the battles of that most deadly of conflicts, this book goes behind the scenes to show what Congress was doing, what Union commanders in the field were doing, and what abolitionists and the slaves themselves were doing to bring about what Lincoln poetically called "this great consummation."
Responsible Gun Ownership is as American as the NFL
December 08, 2013: It's a sad commentary on how much sway an urban elitist mentality must have within the NFL that Bob Costas can give an anti-gun diatribe for free, while the NFL and networks happily take money for ads telling people to drink alcohol and take drugs to help them have more sex, but a firearms business cannot pay to run an ad encouraging men and women to consider how to defend their families.

Impeaching Himself, Period
November 09, 2013: The side-by-side comparisons of President Obama's statements then and now are devastating. Especially the "period." Period here is no punctuation mark. It's a way of underscoring the word of the President of the United States.
Obama a No Show at Gettysburg; Thank Goodness!
November 07, 2013: President Obama will not attend ceremonies at Gettysburg later this month marking the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's immortal address. Thank goodness! Mr. Obama has been getting few kudos of late. His Gallup approval rating has slipped into the thirties. But in this, we can applaud his action.
Sec. Hagel Meets with Belgium's Defense Minister: How Reassuring!
November 06, 2013: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was probably briefed on the demonstrations in Tehran this week. The mobs there burned U.S. flags, chanted "Death to America," and celebrated -- yes, celebrated -- the worst humiliation of the United States in the twentieth century: the seizure of our embassy 34 years ago.
Saving the Motor City
November 04, 2013: At the time when I served as Mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, my city and others across the country looked to Detroit as an industrial and cultural center of America.
