Why do U.S. companies relocate their plants overseas, thereby abolishing U.S. jobs? a. They can hire workers at very low wages (such as 30 cents an hour in China). b.

Last week, there were two stories about carnage - the tragedy at Virginia Tech and the Supreme Court's decision on partial-birth abortion.At Virginia Tech, 32 people were killed. The worst of the pictures were kept from us, but we saw enough, as bleeding students and faculty members were carried out of the buildings. There were no pictures released of what some witnesses described as blood and gore on the floors and walls of the classrooms ... [full story]

Liberals want to resurrect the Federal Communications Commission’s Fairness Doctrine, a tenet created to ensure fair and balanced coverage of controversial issues, so that they can regulate talk radio and require “equal time” be given to opposing political views. Liberals don’t like talk radio’s mostly conservative content. Some conservatives, aided by the FCC, want to regulate violence on broadcast television and, for the first time, cable television and the FCC will soon recommend that Congress ... [full story]

Are conservative Christian evangelicals gearing up to join the attack-Iran brigade? As the launching of the Iraq War marked its fourth anniversary on March 19, it is worth remembering that during the lead up to the invasion a number of conservative evangelicals voiced their support for the war: Richard Land, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation's largest Protestant denomination, maintained that Bush's action met criteria for ...

Back in 2001, when Bryant Gumbel hosted CBS’s The Early Show, he polled his on-air colleagues. “At the risk of starting an argument, are you a believer in global warming?” The responses were unanimous: “Absolutely.” “Of course.” “Yeah.” “So am I,” affirmed Gumbel, who rued the public’s lack of enthusiasm: “I mean, does an iceberg have to come floating down the Hudson before somebody stands up and goes, ‘Oh, yeah’?” Six years later, CBS and ...

It wasn't my first thought on hearing of the massacre at Virginia Tech. Initially, there was just shock and outrage, followed by the self-examination all of us do after a tragedy, as we ask ourselves if we might have done more to prevent such a senseless loss of life.The thought that came to me was not whether stronger gun laws might have deterred the shooter. It wasn't about better ways to alert students through e-mail ... [full story]

Ousted Republican Senator will head up a new program called "America's Enemies" In one of those "how can you miss them if they don't go away" stories, Senator Rick Santorum's resounding defeat in November's election has not sent him scurrying back home to Pennsylvania; Instead, Santorum will be staying in the nation's capital to head up a new program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center called "America's Enemies."   Santorum was also added to the ...

Daniel Drew, the legendary 19th century Wall Street insider, reputedly said that all he wanted in any deal was "a little unfair advantage." Most of America's trade competitors seem to want the same thing, or even a big unfair advantage. Imagine how it would help the competitiveness of American exporters if U.S. companies could cut their prices an average of 19 percent in Europe and 17 percent in Asia. Imagine what it would also mean ... [full story]

Prominent black scholar and author Ralph Ellison once depicted the black man as socially invisible in his watershed novel "Invisible Man." His hard-hitting portrayal of life in 1940s black America suggested that it'll take more than a major civil rights movement to bring the nation out of its racist past. That was in 1953. Since then, much progress has been made in terms of black men gaining greater visibility in the United States. At the ... [full story]

A lesser man than John McCain might be backing away from his previous support for the war-gone-bad in Iraq. What we're seeing instead is the very opposite of political expediency - a Churchillian call to endure and prevail in an admittedly unpopular war but still a fight that McCain believes America cannot afford to lose. McCain's Virginia Military Institute speech April 11 stands as his most compelling case yet for persevering in Iraq. Moreover, McCain's ... [full story]

Last Sunday, as Major League Baseball from San Diego and Los Angeles to New York and Washington, D.C., honored the memory and the legacy of Jackie Robinson (No. 42), I was in the historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church listening to the great historian John Hope Franklin. The occasion was the second in a series of discussions on Abraham Lincoln and African-American history sponsored by the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission authorized by Congress and appointed by ...

I have no idea whether Fred Thompson, former senator from Tennessee, will run for the Republican nomination for president, but he should.He has Ronald Reagan's communication skills and speaks plainly in ways most people can understand. Anyone who has listened to him substitute for Paul Harvey on ABC News Radio senses that, in this, he follows in Reagan's footsteps. Radio is an intimate medium. People who are able to connect with a radio audience often ... [full story]

In the mad scramble among states to determine which ones will play a major role in the 2008 presidential primaries and caucuses, we may be doing serious harm to our presidential nominating process. California, Florida, Nevada and more states to come are elated by the prospect of playing a major role in the selection of presidential nominees, and they envision millions of dollars in television and campaign revenue. Before this year is out, there may ... [full story]
