Romney-Ryan: Real change

By Cal Thomas

LAST THURSDAY’S Wall Street Journal editorial “Why Not Paul Ryan?” made the case for his selection as the Republican vice-presidential nominee in this statement: “Romney can win a big election over big issues. He’ll lose a small one.”

Eat more chicken
By Cal Thomas

CHICK-FIL-A President Dan Cathy is in hot water with the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community because he committed the cardinal sin in an age of political correctness: Thou must not speak ill of anything gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgenders wish to do.
In an interview with the Baptist Press and later on a Christian radio program, Cathy, whose father, the philanthropist Truett Cathy, founded the company, defended marriage between a man and a woman and when asked about the company’s support of traditional marriage said, “Guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.” Cathy believes American society is rotting (and where is evidence to the contrary?) because the country has turned away from God.

Stossel’s solution
By Cal Thomas

IN ORDER TO get the correct answer to anything, one must ask the right question. That is what former “ABC News” and current “Fox News” TV host John Stossel does on his weekly program. If ever there was “must-see TV,” this is it.

Stossel’s show on Saturday, June 30, was a classic. It was called “Government, Incorporated” and focused on what private industry can do less expensively and more efficiently than government. After watching it, I wondered why this isn’t happening. Why does inefficient, costly and unresponsive government continue to grow while the people and companies that could do the work much better are regulated and taxed to death?

Many reacting to ‘Obamacare’
By Cal Thomas

REGARDLESS OF HOW the Supreme Court rules on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (this was written before the decision), the Obama administration has indicated it will move forward with those parts of the unpopular law it can impose on the country.

Hard to label real extremists
By Cal Thomas

DON’T YOU FIND it odd that the word extremism seems to apply only to conservative Republicans? Terminology often drives political discourse and those who control the terms often determine the outcome.
Establishment Republicans have too often been uncomfortable in their own skin. When they win elections, they sometimes seem unsure of what to do next. Democrats never seem to have this problem. They operate according to their core convictions and are never considered extreme. Instead, they are moderate, even normal. When Republicans

Egg on Face(book)
By Cal Thomas

THERE WILL BE investigations and already there are lawsuits over the rollout of Facebook’s overhyped initial public offering (IPO) last week, but no investigation is necessary into the reason for the outrage over the stock’s rapid fall. It’s called human nature.
It is the same characteristic that causes people to believe against staggering odds that they can win the lottery, or score big in Atlantic City or discover a foolproof system for playing the stock market. It is the familiar?get-rich-quick notion that somehow one can bypass hard work, sound financial planning and win The Big One, retiring to a life of ease.

Warming up to Romney

By Cal Thomas

IT WASN’T EXACTLY the belly of the beast Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited recently on a picture-perfect commencement day at “the world’s largest Christian University,” but his appearance was a test as to whether the conservative school, founded by the late Jerry Falwell, would embrace a devout Mormon. And Romney passed.
The more than 30,000 assembled in Liberty University’s stadium to hear his commencement address not only applauded him when he proclaimed that marriage was a relationship between one man and one woman but

Is college debt even worth it?
By Cal Thomas

IT IS SOMETHING of a truism that whenever the federal government steps in, costs usually rise and efficiency declines.
That is especially true when it comes to a college education, which President Obama promised during the 2008 campaign to make more affordable. “We’ve got to make sure every young person can afford to go to college,” he said then. Instead, tuition costs keep rising, along with the debt owed by increasing numbers of graduates, who are now campaigning — with bipartisan approval in an election year — for Congress to stop interest rates on their subsidized Stafford loans from doubling in July.

Latest salvo fired in ‘Mommy Wars’
By Cal Thomas

VIRTUALLY everything said and done in a presidential election year distorts the truth, much like concave and convex mirrors in a carnival attraction alter one’s true reflection.
That kind of distortion occurred in the recent dustup over whether women who choose to stay at home can completely understand the economic challenges and personal struggles faced by women who choose, or need, to work outside the home while raising children.

Care or cure?
By Cal Thomas

THE DEBATE ISN’T new, but as the country awaits the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare, suppose the conversation switched from a health-care system devoted primarily to caring for the sick to one that gives top priority to finding cures for disease? A healthier public would sharply reduce expenses associated with catastrophic illness.
