The King’s English and the most critical economic debate since WWII

The King’s English and the most critical economic debate since WWII

By Sol W. Sanders Our use of our brilliant English language, already undermined by primary and secondary education abandoning old forms of teaching grammar and elocution, takes a further beating during this current frenetic political season. Words and definitions get tortured out of shape further confusing already infinitely complicated issues of logic and political choice. […]

FAITH MATTERS: Trivializing evil is a GOP mistake

FAITH MATTERS: Trivializing evil is a GOP mistake

By Uwe Siemon-Netto It is disconcerting that probably the most compelling statement made in this year’s disagreeable U.S. election campaign has received virtually no public attention. Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield in Illinois warned Catholic voters of planks in the Democratic Party Platform “that explicitly endorse intrinsic evils.” He meant abortion and same-sex marriage.

The 2012 debate for a pampered republic: Belt-tightening or more pump-priming?

The 2012 debate for a pampered republic: Belt-tightening or more pump-priming?

By Sol W. Sanders “Now that no one buys our votes, the public has long since cast off its cares; the people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions and all else, now meddles no more and longs eagerly for just two things — bread and circuses.” – Juvenal, circa 100 B.C. Thus a Roman satirist […]

When Irene hit, Vermont — not government — showed what people can do

By John J. Metzler BRANDON, Vermont — It’s been a year since Tropical Storm Irene unexpectedly crashed into Vermont, causing unprecedented flooding and damage throughout much of the Green Mountain state.

Noticing Romney's unnoticed energy proposal

Noticing Romney's unnoticed energy proposal

By Sol W. Sanders Stolid Mitt Romney has come up with an energy plan with a stinger in its tail. The mainstream media, fixated on distractions of the Democratic matador’s cape, virtually ignored it. Energy aficionados gave it a ho-hum reception since it calls on hoary common-sense arguments. But the plan contains a magnificent hidden […]

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded 'progressive' assaults on freedom in the U.S.

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded 'progressive' assaults on freedom in the U.S.

By Lev Navrozov I was born in Moscow; I went to a Soviet school, where I discovered that there were things one should never mention in class. In particular, my parents told me never to reveal to my classmates any conversations we were having at home and never to discuss anything going on in our […]

Gaffes? No, Romney nailed it, speaking truth to media-bureaucratic power

By Sol W. Sanders Poor ol’ Mitt Romney. He forgot politicians are supposed to cater to the media. And when he spoke truth to power of the left-wing comme il faut Anglo-American journalist mob, they came down on him like the proverbial ton of bricks. And so what were all those uncommon observations labeled “gaffes” […]

Soviet health care almost aborted our son: Reflections on our 40th anniversary in freedom

By Lev Navrozov In 1972, my wife, our son, my mother, and I were on our way to the United States from Italy, where we had spent almost six months waiting for our American visas to be processed. All other Russian émigrés who also received their visas chose to go to the United States by […]

China economic dragon’s fire turns out to be hot air

By Sol W. Sanders It’s taken quite a long time but now even National Public Radio’s Beijing correspondent acknowledges Chinese statistics are a little more than dubious. It’s become an even more critical issue for more than a minority of us who have cast doubt on them for a long time. For there’s now general […]
