Memorial Day 2011 brought the usual large number of special military programming and garnered a few comments to the effect that we ought to be honoring those who have fought and are fighting "for our freedoms." Certainly over the years there are many who have fought and are fighting for freedom. The list would include those who engaged the British after 1776 and again in 1812, those who fought against slavery here after 1861 as well as elsewhere at other times and places. Today's updated list adds "dissidents" expressing their views in foreign countries and much of the youth in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria and even Iran. But can we include on that list those "coalition soldiers" stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Official Washington has gone completely unhinged. Our leaders have convinced themselves the cure for our economic woes is to pump out incomprehensible sums of money for no particular purpose in the vague hope that something good will result. Reasonable prudence, common sense and the lessons of history have been brushed aside.
In the town of Madison, Florida, you can find the Colin P. Kelly memorial, a striking sculpture of four angels, their wings unfurled in the wind. The memorial was dedicated in 1943 to the name and heroics of a B-17 pilot whose plane was shot down just days after Pearl Harbor. Pilot Kelly did not survive the crash, but thanks to his courage and skill, all his crew did, jettisoning safely from the plane. After the memorial was dedicated in Madison Square Garden, it was then moved to Kelly's hometown - Madison - where it remains today. Few people know the angelic statue's namesake, however. It is better known as the "Four Freedoms Monument."

If there was a stock-market-like ticker that tracked the trajectory of freedom in 2006 — let’s just call it the “Freedom Index” — it would have been an off year, in our opinion.
In an authoritarian nation, individual freedom is subordinate to the state’s authority. Dissenters risk their lives and personal fortunes. In the People’s Republic of China, those risks are ongoing.

WASHINGTON - Aretha Franklin couldn't hold back the tears. Carol Burnett pranced coquettishly for the cameras. Muhammad Ali, though unable to walk unassisted, mimed boxing jabs with President Bush.

Just as it’s necessary sometimes to stand up to a bellicose neighbor, it’s also important to know when to mend fences. And after more than four decades of being on the outs with Cuba, it’s time to pry the door open.
If an inauguration speech is supposed to set a philosophical tone and style for a new administration in power, then Arizona’s new governor, Jan Brewer, couldn’t have done any better Wednesday.

In the latest labor report, 368,000 more Americans have stopped looking for work, artificially skewing the unemployment stats down. The recent report of 8.1 percent tricks the brain of the casual thinker. Try thinking about this: 12.5 million of your fellow Americans are out of work (Labor Department). Perhaps you are one of them or your child. See: www.money.cnn.com (2012 August jobs report).
We in the conservative movement are still licking our wounds from the last election. As we do some soul-searching, it should be easy to answer one question: Do we side with those who think no tax is high enough, or are we on the side of America’s entrepreneurs, professionals, farmers, ranchers and small business owners?
Steve Stanek: One of the worst decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history is now linked with one of the worst economic development failures in history. We should not be surprised, as “economic development” failures cover the country.
Great minds expose the issues in our current economic and cultural war. Problem is, most of us are not paying attention. Distractions are consuming. A current one is watching Cher’s son, Chaz Bono, on “Dancing With the Stars.” On that note, I’m wondering if he wishes he’d just stayed home. It’s painful to watch, yet la-la-land really is a magnet. And there I digressed, or did I?
