  • The Case (Thousands of Them) for Voter ID Laws” Yahoo! Voice – July 14, 2012 Recently I was sent an article from ThinkProgress, which usually lacks both “thought” and “advancement,” but I was sent the link and read the article. It’s the usual talking points – anyone wanting to protect our voting rights is a racist-poor-people-hater. The article was regarding … read more
  • “America Now” 2003 Column originally published in The OSU Lantern was included in this compilation of essays … see #14
  • “Choice.” SmartGirl Politics Action Magazine – February 2011 – pages 16-17 It’s a mantra of the liberal left, unless your ability to choose damages an objective of theirs. In the case of school choice, this is exactly the problem. … read more
  • “True Patriotism Ought to Exclude Petty Protests” The OSU Lantern – January 24, 2002 Over the past few weeks, many countries, organizations and individuals have complained the detainees being held at Camp X-Ray in Cuba are not being treated in accordance with the Geneva Convention and are being tortured. In a time of war, how quickly the tongues of our supposed friends change their tone. … read more
  • Sacrifice Rights for Temporary Safety” The OSU Lantern – November 18, 2001 Our nation is, in most ways, blessed to have the Bill of Rights and the profound freedom of self-determination and personal liberty. According to some, the war we are fighting in Afghanistan does not support the rights of the Afghan people since innocent civilians have been casualties of war. In addition, many believe the rights of American citizens are being trampled … read more
  • “New Anti-Terrorism Law Lacks Necessary Power to Be Effective” The OSU Lantern – November 4, 2001 Last week, President Bush signed the new anti-terrorism bill into law. While both supporters and critics agree the law lays a foundation for an intelligence-gathering system of unprecedented scale, the FBI, CIA and Congress can do more in the search for the terrorists. However, the legislation does not allow them the rights and powers they need … read more
  • “Terror Victims Struggle Through Charity Maze” The OSU Lantern – October 28, 2001 Families who lost loved ones in the World Trade Center attack have spent the past weeks in continued terror. They have been standing in long lines, filling out 10 pages or more of forms and reports, hearing that their names have been lost from the databases in the shuffle, deciphering through the many numbers of agencies and, most important, the vast majority have not yet seen even a penny … read more
  • “Study Motive to Prevent Further Attacks” The OSU Lantern – September 30, 2001 In his Sept. 27 column for World Net Daily, “I don’t understand,” Bill O’Reilly of the Fox News channel explains why we should not attempt to understand terrorists and people who attack America. O’Reilly explains it would be a colossal mistake to try to understand those who plan and execute such evil events. On the contrary, it is actually a mistake to fail to study these individuals. … read more
  • “New War Must Be Fought Over Freedom, Not Race or Religion” The OSU Lantern – September 23, 2001 Over the weeks, months and years to come, our strong union will be planning a method by which we can bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies. As President Bush explained in his speech Thursday, we are beginning the process of fighting evil, and good will prevail. Unfortunately, some have classified this war as a religious war, or a Christian Jihad … read more
  • “Freedom, Unity Will Triumph Over Evil” The OSU Lantern – September 16, 2001 Sept. 11, 2001 is “a date which will live in infamy,” as President Franklin D. Roosevelt described the similarly horrific attack on Pearl Harbor. Terrorists have penetrated our borders, attacked our innocent citizens and frozen not only New York City and Washington, D.C., but also air travel and financial markets throughout the world. This is not only an attack on the United States of America … read more
