As the new chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz refuses to take money for her campaign from lobbyists or political action committees - the same rules Barack Obama insisted upon for the DNC as a presidential candidate in 2008.
The Department of Defense's $1 trillion, 20-year Joint Strike Fighter program is a prime target in the campaign to reduce military spending.
The fuel tank that will help propel the space shuttle Endeavour into orbit is already battle-scarred from some rough shaking thanks to Hurricane Katrina.
NASA ordered its comet-hunting Stardust probe to burn its remaining fuel on Thursday, setting off a sequence that shut down the spacecraft after a 12-year career.
Recent events in Wisconsin and Ohio show that "public servants" are threatening to become our masters. In 1959, by being the first state to grant public-sector employees the right to unionize, Wisconsin entrenched a powerful political class. In order to overcome bloated pension plans and waste-encouraging workplace policies, we must now fight a class war, but it's not the "rich vs. poor" one that most people think we're fighting.

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has not had a good run of luck before the House ethics committee lately. Two of its senior members face trials before the panel. Rep. Charles B. Rangel, New York Democrat, is accused of cheating on his taxes, abusing New York rent-control laws and improperly using congressional stationery. Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, is alleged to have steered bailout money to a bank in which her husband had a sizable financial interest. Now come Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, Texas Democrat, and Rep. Sanford D. Bishop Jr., Georgia Democrat, who have admitted to improperly doling out Congressional Black Caucus Foundation scholarship funds to their relatives and a staffer's children.
California's Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer is not much of a pragmatist when it comes to the U.S. military. She consistently voted to end the war in Iraq long before the outcome was at all certain, supporting numerous measures to put rigid timelines for withdrawal of our troops in place regardless of conditions on the ground. She tried to thwart President Obama's attempts to win the war in Afghanistan, opposing his efforts to put enough troops in the theater to accomplish the job. She famously berated a general who had the temerity to fail address her as "Senator," instead following common military protocol and calling her "Ma'am."
