    DIANE MEDVED:  Why No One Regrets his Divorce

    by Diane Medved “Why No One Regrets his Divorce” seems a peculiar statement coming from the author of Don't Divorce. Isn't the basis of my book that lots of people regret their divorces, and so there's good reason to prevent it? However, I've learned that already-divorced people–especially those for whom…

  • Trump vs. Waters — Who Should Be Impeached?

    Almost from the moment President Donald Trump recited the oath of office, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., began a quest for Trump's impeachment. But given Waters' record of 26 years in Congress (plus a prior 14 years in the California State Assembly), she should worry far more about the possibility of…

    Dems’ Gloom May Seal Their Doom

    The Democrats used to bill themselves as the party of unshakable optimism with jaunty, confident presidents like FDR or JFK, “Happy Warriors” like Al Smith and Hubert Humphrey, or the “Man from Hope” himself, Bill Clinton. But a new Pew Research study shows the party of “Happy Days Are Here…

    What Comey Deserved

    It's easy to argue that James Comey deserved to be fired, but the FBI Director didn't deserve to be terminated in the clumsy, abrupt way that he was. General Michael Flynn, accused of far more flagrant misdeeds, got to resign his post as National Security Advisor, but the President never…

    Dear Ms. Fonda: Before you travel to Detroit this weekend to campaign for a $12 minimum wage, I suggest you read this letter. I'm sure you mean well. But are you familiar with the voluminous number of peer-reviewed studies that conclude minimum-wage laws damaged the very people that many of…
