FEULNER: 'The American Spirit'

Are America's best days behind her? Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, seems to think so. "The American dream is a myth," he writes in a recent column. In a new USA Today/Gallup poll, nearly 6 in 10 disagreed with the idea that the next generation will live better than their parents do. Published June 11, 2012

FEULNER: Growing funds for farms

Get ready to hear about the family farm. It's time, once again, for Congress to plow through a renewal of the nation's agricultural policy. Published June 4, 2012

FEULNER: Unconscionable mandate

"We have tried negotiation with the [Obama] administration and legislation with the Congress - and we'll keep at it - but there's still no fix. Time is running out." Published May 31, 2012

FEULNER: Sink the Law of the Sea Treaty

Want the United States to gain legal access to the vast amount of oil and natural gas in the underwater extended continental shelf? Get LOST - specifically, the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). Published May 21, 2012

FEULNER: Budget plan that adds up

It has been more than three years (1,112 days, to be precise) since the U.S. Senate last passed a budget. The last time Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid fulfilled his legal responsibility, Conan O'Brien was still on NBC, Tea Parties hadn't come together, and the iPad hadn't yet been introduced.

FEULNER: After Obamacare

Who should be in charge of your health care - you, or the government? That, in a nutshell, is what the debate over Obamacare is about. Published May 7, 2012

FEULNER: Behind 'Fakegate'

What could be more American than encouraging a robust debate on one of the most controversial issues of the day? The answer - for some on the left, anyway - is: Lie about your opponents, and make a pathetic effort to discredit them. Published April 30, 2012

FEULNER: Decade after the ABM Treaty's end

"Unnecessary, unwarranted and unwise." That's how Daryl G. Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, described it when President Bush announced that the United States would withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. The arms-control crowd seemed certain that our "go-it-alone" attitude would only antagonize Russia, China and all of Europe, leaving us without a friend in the world. Published April 23, 2012

FEULNER: Century of service for Eagle Scouts

You find them in all walks of life. They might be playing outfield for the Philadelphia Phillies (Shane Victorino). Or hosting the show "Dirty Jobs" for the Discovery Channel (Mike Rowe). Or founding Wal-Mart (Sam Walton). Or even becoming president of the United States (Gerald Ford). Published April 16, 2012

FEULNER: Taming Taxmageddon

Many Americans are breathing a sigh of relief as they finally manage to file their income tax returns. No need to worry about taxes again for another year, right? Published April 9, 2012

FEULNER: A whispering campaign

We've come a long way from President Theodore Roosevelt's famous saying, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." President Obama's policy apparently is to whisper slyly and compromise our security. Published April 2, 2012

FEULNER: Restoring budgetary sanity

"I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared," Thomas Jefferson once wrote. "To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt." Published March 26, 2012

FEULNER: Demoting America's staunchest ally

The highlight of my recent trip to Great Britain? Without question, it was visiting Margaret Thatcher. The former prime minister, whose wise leadership restored her country to greatness, played an indispensable role in helping the West win the Cold War. Her staunch commitment to conservative principles never fails to inspire. Published March 19, 2012

FEULNER: Red ink on the rise

When it comes to regulations, President Obama's message to his conservative critics seems to be: Message received. Early last year, he vowed to crack down on overzealous rule-making, noting that the "rules have gotten out of balance" and "have had a chilling effect on growth and jobs." He's right - they have.

FEULNER: A century of cherry blossoms

Into every life, they say, a little rain must fall. And a little snow as well. In fact, here in Washington, some are rooting for snow before spring arrives. "Every night before going to sleep," Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki told reporters recently, "I pray: 'Fall the snow. Blow the cold wind.' " It's not that Mr. Fujisaki wants to witness firsthand the capital city's famously inept response to winter weather; he's just hoping that the city's cherry trees will wait a few more weeks before blooming.

FEULNER: Onerous effects of overregulation

We keep hearing that the economy is in a "jobless recovery." What's holding American companies back? Why aren't they hiring more people? Published February 20, 2012

FEULNER: A nation of takers

Americans pride themselves on being a self-reliant people. We know that the freedom to make our own fortune sets us apart from the people of many other nations. It's what has drawn to our shores generations of immigrants - men and women risking their lives to live a life in which they, not the government, are in charge. Published February 13, 2012

FEULNER: A job too good to be true

Imagine a job where you earn an above-average salary, enjoy plenty of paid leave, have enviable health benefits and get to retire at age 56 with a generous pension. Sound good? Published February 6, 2012

FEULNER: Mauling the military

"Freedom isn't free." We usually hear this on occasions such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day. It's meant to remind us of the brave American troops who put their lives on the line daily to protect our liberty and preserve our security. Published January 30, 2012
