Cable television offers dozens of news-analysis channels. The last-minute financial rescue of Sirius XM satellite radio leaves at least 20 talk shows on the air. Beyond that, countless blogs written by individuals bombard the Internet. Never before has such a sweeping selection of political commentary been available to the public. Nevertheless, the bad penny of the airwaves — the discredited Fairness Doctrine - has again turned up. An odious invention of the Federal Communications Commission ... [full story]

President Barack Obama's proposed cap-and-trade system on greenhouse gas emissions is a giant economic dagger aimed at the nation's heartland — particularly Michigan. It is a multibillion-dollar tax hike on everything that Michigan does, including making things, driving cars and burning coal. The president is asking for a system of government limits on carbon emissions. The right to emit carbon would be auctioned off to generate revenue for more government spending programs. The president's budget ... [full story]

The Internet is full of sites where you can purchase plates, glasses, wine, clothing, coins and plates honoring Barack Obama. Heck, even the gas station down the street from our office is selling various hats, T-shirts and other gewgaws honoring the 44th president. But what about No. 43? Where can a guy get merchandise honoring President George W. Bush? Why, at GeorgeWBushStore.com, of course, a service of the Spalding Group of Louisville, Ky., which bills ... [full story]

There is friction on the left. The Obama administration is under mounting pressure from some of its liberal supporters to stop workplace immigration raids and instead put together a plan for comprehensive reform. They are half right. The administration should certainly craft a comprehensive immigration bill, and the sooner the better. We need to fix our broken immigration system, and a comprehensive reform plan is our best hope to secure the borders while tackling the ... [full story]

Of all the billions of dollars in government giveaways proposed in President Barack Obama's first budget, the money targeted to increase college aid is perhaps the most justified. America needs more college graduates if it hopes to compete in the 21st-century knowledge economy. But tuition costs are soaring as colleges pass on the cost of rising expenses and declining state aid to students and their families. That's particularly true in Michigan, where tuition at most ...

College students soon will pack for the time-honored ritual of spring-break partying under the sunny skies that hover above postcard vistas of Mexican beaches. But this year, an ominous cloud of illegal drugs trafficked by Mexican cartels is overshadowing peaceful, civil life in Mexican towns. Residents and tourists alike are threatened by escalating violence that is destroying lives on both sides of the international border. Mexican border cities have become literal battlegrounds for rival drug ... [full story]

President Barack Obama's proposed budget outline assumes tax increases don't affect behaviour. They do. It also assumes Congress will end its spending spree. It won't. If all of the programs in the budget plan become law, tax increases will affect more Americans than the high-income earners targeted in this proposal, and the economy will suffer. The president's outline for a 2010 budget, and a blueprint covering the next decade, was released Thursday. The plan sees ... [full story]

In 1982, President Ronald Reagan began the lovely tradition of inviting everyday heroes to be the president's guests during the State of the Union address, and perhaps to serve as human talking points during the speech. The first such guest was a young federal employee named Lenny Skutnick, who a couple of weeks before the speech had jumped into the Potomac River to rescue survivors of a plane crash. Ever since, the White House speechwriting ... [full story]

Going to great — even dangerous — lengths for a shot at the American dream and working hard for what's earned: It's long been part of this country's immigrant ethic. So it should surprise no one if far more immigrants than expected answer the call to join the U.S. military, which can be about as dangerous a job as exists. The military, the New York Times reports, will begin recruiting immigrants who are in this ... [full story]

Making war on business is no way to stimulate an economy. But read between the lines of President Barack Obama's address to Congress and you find a battle plan for a broad attack on industrial America. His proposals reflect a stunning disregard for the impact of government policies on economic output and a clear preference for jobs created by government spending rather than private investment. The president says he wants to eliminate the George W. ... [full story]

Credit President Barack Obama for heeding calls to strike a more hopeful tone in his address to Congress and the nation Tuesday night. Americans needed a break from the relentless predictions of economic doom and to instead hear that things will indeed get better. But the programs, policies and promises laid out in his speech are a mess of contradictions that the president will have to reconcile if he hopes to keep the public's confidence. ... [full story]

General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC are back for more of your money. The two companies want a combined $22 billion more in government loans on top of the $17.4 billion they received gift-wrapped from Congress right before the holidays. Their argument: If the government doesn't cough up the money, it will cost more, because the two automakers will be forced into bankruptcy. GM has said it alone might need as much as $100 billion ...

President Barack Obama's plan for preventing foreclosures and helping to stabilize the housing market is serious in scope and imaginative in approach — as far as it goes. The plan, announced Feb. 18 in Mesa, Ariz., needs a hammer to force an unrepentant banking industry to make deals that protect communities and keep deserving families in their homes. Millions of homeowners have seen their monthly mortgage payments rise to between 40 percent and 50 percent ... [full story]
