WILLIAMS: A disturbing tendency: Obama taking bad deals

President Obama is doubling down in his defense of his defying the rule of law, his exercising poor judgment, and his mischaracterizing (I'm trying to be charitable) the service of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl — all in service of his ill-conceived "deal" to free the lone American serviceman held captive in Afghanistan. Published June 9, 2014

Abbas

WILLIAMS: A Palestinian alliance that undermines peace with Israel

Polls consistently show that many Americans don't know, let alone truly care about, what goes on outside the borders of this country. Walk down the aisle of your local grocery store and the trove of magazines available for purchase will lead you to the logical conclusion that most Americans are far more fixated on what goes in within the 30-mile zone of Hollywood than on life-and-death issues confronting people across the globe.

Sterling

WILLIAMS: New responsibilities come with the burden of ownership

Donald Sterling's publicly disclosed comments depict an anachronistic view of race relations in this country. The NBA owner's interview tour is beyond incomprehensible, sad, ignorant and completely shows that he has lost touch with reality. Published May 18, 2014

WILLIAMS: Redeeming the image of black men in the media

High school graduation rates are at a historic all-time high. Black students are helping drive this historic trend by graduating at a 69 percent clip — their highest rate in years. But you wouldn't know this by watching mainstream media outlets. Published May 4, 2014

WILLIAMS: A duty to be wealthy?

Although I've written extensively in the past on the subject of money, there are always new facets to consider as time goes on. One of the most important things that arose lately is the role of wealth in family relationships. In my experience, the ability to contribute financially to one's family and to be a source of support in times of need is one of the most important and beneficial uses of wealth.

Maher

WILLIAMS: Bill Maher, comedian or bigot?

Comedy has many subjects: leaders, governments, things we don't understand. Regarding that last topic, I suppose it is understandable that comedians pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows them to do so. What is generally not condoned, however, are continuous and sweeping insults aimed at those with differing points of view.

WILLIAMS: It's time for the poor to pull their own weight

All too often, rich individuals in this country are demonized for simply being rich. If some sort of financial catastrophe happens, such as the latest recession in 2009, the rich are to blame. If the government is running large deficits, the rich are not paying their "fair share." If an individual is poor and cannot find employment, it is because the rich hoard all their profits and don't share with anyone else. Published April 13, 2014

WILLIAMS: The exploitation of college athletes

The National Labor Relations Board decided near the end of March to let college football players at Northwestern University unionize. Usually I am not in favor of unions, but clearly something must be done to change the way college athletes get compensated for their services. Published April 6, 2014

WILLIAMS: What crime have I committed?

It is fundamentally flawed to penalize someone for engaging in free enterprise and free thought. Thinking about it objectively, how can we penalize someone for his thoughts rather than his actions? Furthermore, we penalize people for thoughts that promote diversity, minority ownership and free enterprise — ideals that invigorate this country — not thoughts of crime. Published March 30, 2014

WILLIAMS: Changing the conversation on parenting

The amount of influence the family life has on a child is eye-opening. Did you know that marriage reduces the probability of child poverty by 80 percent? Did you further know that a child coming from an "intact married home" is 44 percent more likely to gain a college degree and 40 percent less likely to have a child out of wedlock, and will earn $4,000 more per year than a child that did not come from such a home?

Wilson

WILLIAMS: Making Jesus cool again

The Seattle Seahawks stunned the world in Super Bowl XLVIII by not only beating the slightly favored Denver Broncos, but also by destroying them. After the 43-8 win gave the team its first Super Bowl victory, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson led fellow Christians on both sides of the game in prayer giving glory to God. After praying, Mr. Wilson got on stage in front of millions of fans and praised God for the win. Published March 2, 2014

WILLIAMS: School choice — Good for students, good for America

The idea that parents have no control over where their children go to school sounds unthinkable, but America's public education system is exactly that. Children must go to a school based not on choice, but on five numbers — their ZIP code. Published February 23, 2014

WILLIAMS: Women, balancing careers with motherhood

As a society, we need to get back to celebrating mothers who sacrifice their careers to care for our most vulnerable, our children. We have emerged from the mindset that women are inferior to men, but we also must emerge from and reject the mindset that full-time mothers are inferior to working women or single mothers.

WILLIAMS: Nigeria's promise and potential

While Americans celebrated Jan. 1 as just the start of another new year, the date was a major milestone in the history of Nigeria. It marked 100 years to the day since the separate protectorates of Southern and Northern Nigeria were united. Published February 9, 2014

WILLIAMS: Don't ignore our Constitution, Mr. President

The Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution with the powers of government divided between the president, the Congress, and the courts and they did so for a reason — to limit the action of government unless there was a social consensus about that action. The founders were worried about dictatorship and the ways that government can limit freedom. Published February 2, 2014
