WILLIAMS: Obama's capital gain hypocrisy

It was eerily awkward to hear President Obama's promise at the State of the Union address earlier this year to eliminate all capital gains taxes on investment in small business. Published April 5, 2010

WILLIAMS: Showdown over health reform

Now that Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has dispensed with colorful metaphors, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has removed her perma-smile, bureaucrats in Washington are busily preparing the necessary channels to begin communicating details of the massive bill to the states. And so a new chapter begins in this epic saga, but one President Obama and his team will not want to read. Published March 29, 2010

WILLIAMS: Genuine economic stimulus

Government policy does not have to sap America's economy. There are relatively simple policies that, if implemented, can strengthen America's economy over time. Published March 22, 2010

WILLIAMS: Heroes will emerge

Heroes can and will emerge from the most unsuspecting places and make crucial decisions that can reverberate around the world. Published March 15, 2010

WILLIAMS: Toyota's deadly secret

Many of us are just too personally familiar with the crisis Toyota now faces as a result of its clandestine relationship with our government that has seriously jeopardized or killed countless Americans on our highways. Published March 1, 2010

WILLIAMS: Forget the girls -- government's gone wild

If any chief executive officer in the United States of America presented his board with a budget that was one-third unfunded, he would be fired and tossed out of the boardroom immediately. Published February 14, 2010

WILLIAMS: Old-guard feminists sound off over Super Bowl ad

Do you hear that sound? It's the thunderous clap of women's reproductive rights collapsing on itself. Or so some women's groups would have you think, given their outrage over CBS' decision to air the Super Bowl ad from the evangelical organization Focus on the Family. Published February 8, 2010

WILLIAMS: A colorblind America

Barack Obama has now served one year as America's first black president — an unmistakable sign that the country has taken an astonishing step away from its history of slavery and institutionalized racism. Published February 1, 2010

WILLIAMS: Winners and losers from the Mass-acre

The dust is still settling from the fallout of the special election in Massachusetts to replace the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. The rejection of socialism, high taxes and government restrictions on personal health care choices all became self-evident last week with Scott Brown's stunning upset. It was the shot heard around the political world. Published January 25, 2010

WILLIAMS: Take terrorist cells out now

The Obama administration is currently embroiled in a public relations and policy vortex that threatens to consume an increasingly larger proportion of the shrinking agenda of the president and Congress if some swift actions are not taken. Published January 11, 2010

WILLIAMS: Palin's paradox

Before Sarah Palin became John McCain's running mate last year, we spent a morning in her Alaska office while she was still governor. We sat down for a one-hour TV interview, and I was most impressed with her insights, traditional values, grasp of issues, and just what a sincere and genuinely warm person she was.

WILLIAMS: Absurdity of athlete worship

For me, it started with Muhammad Ali. I can perfectly recall sitting in the living room with my father, watching as he danced around the ring with a rare mix of fluidity and power, dispatching one rough, plodding opponent after another. He seemed the perfect embodiment of masculine striving. But the best part was after the match had ended. That's when Ali would unleash one of his verbal rants. Full of braggadocio, he would proclaim to the world, "I am the greatest." And I believed him. Published December 14, 2009

WILLIAMS: California doping our youths

I was horrified to read recently that it is increasingly common in California to treat children diagnosed with Attention- Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with marijuana. California voters passed a law allowing doctors to recommend medical marijuana to their patients, including those under the age of 18. The law allows doctors to recommend marijuana "for any ... illness for which marijuana provides relief." Under that broad umbrella, doctors are pushing pot to treat all kinds of maladies, including ADHD. Published December 7, 2009

WILLIAMS: The dropout rate is a crisis

In his second inaugural address, President Franklin D. Roosevelt lamented: "I see one third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, and ill-nourished." From that lament, the New Deal took root. Published November 30, 2009

WILLIAMS: Finding gratitude in difficult times

Thanksgiving is traditionally a time and place to once again gather with family, enjoy the sweet aromas of turkey and cranberries, and to remember all the things for which you are grateful. Published November 25, 2009
