GAZA -Muslim groups are reportedly threatening Gaza's small Christian community. The danger to the 2,000 Christians in Gaza comes not from Hamas, but from more fanatic groups that want to enforce Muslim law on everyone there, Christian leaders told The Washington Times. "They are small groups that are very militant and want to enforce Shariah law, and want the Christians to abide with it," the Rev. Hanna Massad, pastor of the Gaza Baptist Church, told ...

First-time home buyers are having an increasingly tough time acquiring their first dream home.

TORONTO - Canada's point-based immigration is backlogged with more than 800,000 applications, meaning a wait of at least four years for hopeful professionals. While immigration officials deny there is a quota system, the immigration legislation awards more points to the educated, bi- or multi-lingual, and those between 21 and 49 years old, the International Herald Tribune reported Wednesday. However, in the oil-rich province of Alberta, immigration's slow bureaucratic pace has left the oil industry short ... [full story]

Ronald Reagan said famously, "The trouble with those on 'the left': if they see something move, they'll tax it, if it keeps moving, they'll regulate it, and if it stops moving, they'll subsidize it." We would add, as longtime "tax cutters," that unfortunately, all too often, that phenomenon is also occurring on "the right." Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Max Baucus, D-Mont., are co-sponsoring a bill to tax private equity firms that go public, as ... [full story]
