What are we really saying when we state our health care system is broken and needs reform?  Do we explain what we are really asking for or do we presume some other being will just fix it for us?  When is the health care consumer going to jump into the fray?  We relentlessly complain about sub-standard care, long waits, and cost and yet the system has not responded appropriately to requests.  I wonder why? Main ... [full story]

The Supreme Court this week made tougher regulation of greenhouse gases inevitable in America. It won't be immediate, and the Bush administration will continue to try to wriggle out of its obligations. But in a 5-4 vote, the court declared firmly that the Clean Air Act gives the Environmental Protection Agency a duty to control auto emissions. The decision was a victory for environmentalists and a rebuke to the Bush administration, which stubbornly had maintained ... [full story]

The fallout from the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on climate change could be significant. It hits the domestic auto industry particularly hard. A majority of the justices reached beyond their expertise to parrot environmental activists' claims that climate change is forcing massive damage to the Earth. But neither the court nor the rest of the government should target any one industry when the causes are so broad. Of course, keeping environmental alarmists at bay will be ... [full story]

As many have noted distressingly, the '08 presidential race already has begun. Of the many consequences, count this one as among the most serious: the need to enact immigration reform now. The majority of Americans recognize the need for broad - and fair - immigration reform. Standing in the way is the shortened attention span such important issues get once presidential campaigning begins in earnest. Suddenly, what was important gets placed on the back burner. ...

Democrats wasted no time after their takeover of Congress in November in declaring a new era of responsible government. Party leaders said earmarks and massive, blithe pork-barrel spending would be a thing of the past. "We promise the most honest, most open, most ethical Congress in history," declared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Initially, Democrats seemed to live up to their grand talk. To the amazement of many, incoming Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Robert Byrd - the ... [full story]

What do the NFL, the band Coldplay and the humanities college at the University of Utah have in common? They've all pledged to become carbon "neutral," a blissful state of being in which the amount of greenhouse gases one emits is supposedly offset. It's the environmental equivalent of Weight Watchers. People figure out their carbon "footprint" - how many emissions they release at home, at work and through travel - and try to atone for ... [full story]

Amid the gusher of ethanol news since President Bush called for an aggressive boost in production, one fact has become as clear as a gallon of grain alcohol. Ethanol is only a part of the solution. Other steps will be needed to wean Americans from the pernicious effects of foreign oil and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. In his State of the Union address in January, Bush called for production of ethanol and other ... [full story]

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last year predicted it was "unlikely" the United Nations would take serious action to block its nuclear programs. But unless all nations prove him wrong by enforcing the harshest sanctions, military action is unavoidable. The maniacal leader of Iran, who has said Israel should be wiped off the map, has played the international community for fools and used the time during the United Nations' inaction to further develop his arsenal. There ... [full story]
