The late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia once described the Endangered Species Act as imposing “unfairness to the point of financial ruin — not just upon the rich, but upon the simplest farmer who finds his land conscripted to national zoological use.” His comment resonates with far too many landowners across the country.
The D.C. Council voted this week to add a physician-assisted suicide bill to their legislative agenda. Proponents insist that such suicides be viewed as a purely private matter between an autonomous adult who desires to die and another autonomous adult who can provide medical assistance in death.
Events in the United States occurring during the past two weeks promise to shake up global energy markets and undermine Russian power, unless President Obama or Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton further attempt to prop up Russian President Vladimir Putin’s energy cabal.
A presidential campaign is figuratively called a “race.” Two runners sprint toward the Election Day finish line for the prize of the presidency.
Imagine: What if the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) singled out hundreds of grassroots citizens groups across the nation and subjected them to ill treatment because of their political beliefs and values, mainly in opposition to the president of the United States?
Americans regularly decry media bias — especially during elections. The truth, however, is that for the vast majority of American history, we have had biased media. The problem today is that it is so drastically one-sided that it is tipping election results.
Americans face daunting challenges beyond the apparent grasp of the principal contenders for president. Rekindling growth and creating enough good-paying jobs will require wholly rethinking how we educate and socialize young people for work.
When I took office in January 2011, Georgia was in the midst of a criminal justice system crisis. The state’s prison population and incarceration budget had doubled in the previous two decades and taxpayers were spending $1 billion per year to keep tens of thousands of inmates behind bars.
Nov. 8 may very well go down in history as the day Americans signed our nation’s death certificate. We the people need to understand what is at stake in the most important election in U.S. history
On a rare occasion, we Fox News contributors will visit programming off-campus. I did just that last Sunday as a guest on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.” Any time Donald Trump’s candidacy is going to be discussed, you now have to presume it will be less about the issues, and more about the shiny distraction of “accusers” from Mr. Trump’s past.
Donald Trump says the November election may be “rigged” against him, and nearly half the voters in one public-opinion poll agrees with him. Even more voters than that say they’re not confident their votes will be accurately counted.
Last week the Nevada Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision on Education Savings Accounts, or ESAs, and upheld the law creating the ESA program. Parents, children and educational choice supporters across the nation have looked to Nevada as the new national leader in educational choice and opportunity.
I recently received even more confirmation about a topic on which I often speak — the idea that the lack of leadership has more than permeated corporate America, but is also driving executives of major corporations to look at their leadership responsibilities through the prism of their ideology.
Joseph Stalin once said, “If I could control the medium of the American motion picture, I would need nothing else to convert the entire world to communism.”
As the D.C. Council takes up the issue of “death with dignity” this week, it is time to frame the topic correctly. Pending legislation would allow consenting doctors to help terminally ill District residents hasten the end their lives and provide another option for those who are out of options.
