IRS Scandal and HHS Mandate: Wrong for the Same Reasons

The Obama Administration has a thorn in its side: An organization that doesn’t just disagree with the President, but builds a moral case against his policies. The White House wants to neutralize the organization’s effectiveness. They know how to get it done. That organization hears a scary knock at the door (or its equivalent in [...]

Immigration and the Law

Forgive me for venturing again into the immigration debate, but it seems (judging by combox discussions) that I haven’t made my point clearly enough in my past two outings. I tried pointing out that immigration (even unskilled) is not a drag on the overall economy, if we accept the debatable premise that immigrants are a drag [...]

Immigration: keep the illegals out!

My earlier post spawned a flurry of comments that all offered similar criticisms. To paraphrase the most common: “Legal immigration is fine; it’s illegal immigration that we need to stop.

It’s pro-choice in the sense of “we think people can make up their [...]

Starbucks vs. Chick-fil-A: some results

I didn’t realize there would be a follow-up so soon to my earlier post, but here you go. When I first saw the headline “California Chick-Fil-A Offers Free Meals To Gay Marriage Supporters,” I presumed that a franchisee acted independently to protest the COO’s (I mistakenly referred to Dan Cathy as the CEO in the [...]

Don’t bust my “bulble”

If progressives can credit Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI with anything, it would be in shining more of a light on environmental issues. Of course, those inheriting the tradition of the Old Testament have realized since Genesis 2 that we are called to be good stewards of the earth and its resources. But it just ain’t [...]
