The Supreme Court of the United States has Stayed the 4th Circuit ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, effectively upholding, at least temporarily, state marriage amendments.

I don't begrudge President Obama some time off, but the murder of James Foley is a significant change in the nature of the War on Terror. He needs to consider whether playing golf on Martha's Vineyard projects a better image than being in the White House right now.
Ben Shapiro | August 21, 2014 | 5:10 AM
The high levels of crime in the black community contribute to heavier policing, which in turn reinforces perceptions of racial targeting; those perceptions then create resentment against police than ends too often in violent encounters and failure to report crime. And so the cycle starts anew.

Does it make sense to require a park campground operator that has a few hundred employees at 120 different locations to come up with 120 separate affirmative-action plans, one for each site?
James Foley | August 20, 2014 | 4:48 PM
Myself and two colleagues had been captured and were being held in a military detention center in Tripoli. Each day brought increasing worry that our moms would begin to panic. My colleague, Clare, was supposed to call her mom on her birthday, which was the day after we were captured.

Over the past two weeks, the impoverished St. Louis County suburb has become a magnet for self-absorbed publicity seekers of all colors and agendas.
Terence P. Jeffrey | August 20, 2014 | 4:35 AM
When America re-elected President Barack Obama in 2012, we had not quite reached the point where more than half the country was taking benefits from the federal government.
L. Brent Bozell III | August 20, 2014 | 4:34 AM
Our media aren't in the news business. They're in the narrative business, and one of their favorite narratives is that America is deeply racist (something that electing a black president twice in no way disproves).
Charlie Daniels | August 19, 2014 | 2:46 PM
It seems it's hard for some people to accept the fact that there is an evil in this world that goes far beyond criminal behavior or just plain meanness, an evil so demented and so unrepentant that it knows no depths and no bounds.
Ken Connor | August 19, 2014 | 11:26 AM
The mantra used to be one of "tolerance", but we are long past that. Now we are required to celebrate their differences, unless, the different characteristic is Down syndrome.
Jen Kuznicki | August 19, 2014 | 10:42 AM
America is special, and we should not ever forget it, nor hesitate to fight for it. But, people must also have the proper understanding of why America is special, and why it is, as Reagan said, "Our last, best hope on earth."
Star Parker | August 19, 2014 | 10:15 AM
In our president’s take on the world, if there is a winner who winds up better off, then there must be a loser who winds up equally worse off.
Patrick J. Buchanan | August 19, 2014 | 5:58 AM
What we are witnessing in Ferguson today, and nationally, is not only a collision of reported facts, but also a clash of visions about America.
Walter E. Williams | August 19, 2014 | 5:47 AM
Faced with the increasing costs of higher education, parents and taxpayers might like to know what they're getting for their money. Some of it is outrageous.
David Limbaugh | August 19, 2014 | 5:44 AM
How would any of us like to be criminally prosecuted for partisan political purposes just for performing our job duties? This is not the America in which we grew up. This is not the America we can afford to accept.
Hans Bader | August 18, 2014 | 5:42 PM
It is a conflict of interest — and sometimes a violation of the Constitution — for a fine to go to the very unit of government that employs the judge or official who imposed the fine.
Hans Bader | August 18, 2014 | 5:14 PM
A July 31 executive order from President Obama will make it very costly for employers to challenge dubious allegations of wrongdoing against them, if they are government contractors (which employ a quarter of the American workforce).
J. Matt Barber | August 18, 2014 | 1:34 PM
This is a game-changer. Talk about “an old wives’ tale.” You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-believers.
Charlie Daniels | August 18, 2014 | 10:39 AM
A lot of America has been whistling through the graveyard afraid of looking right, left or behind lest they see some specter they don't want to admit exists.
Rich Galen | August 18, 2014 | 5:28 AM
Most police departments do not need armored, anti-IED personnel carriers for the routine checking of parking meters, unless the parking meters are in Fallujah.
