TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
The issue is mandatory isolation - quarantine - of doctors, nurses, and military personnel who have been in the Ebola area of West Africa. I have unending respect for Americans who make the decision go into dangerous places to help try to save people's lives. 2014-10-30T13:23:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Rich Galen

Our Make-It-Up World

TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
Do bothersome facts matter anymore? Not really. This is an age when Americans were assured that the Affordable Care Act lowered our premiums. It cut deductibles. Obamacare allowed us to keep our doctors and health plans, and lowered the deficit. Those fantasies were both demonstrably untrue and did not matter, given the supposedly noble aims of health care reform. 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Victor Davis Hanson

Facebook joined Twitter after taking a nosedive following the posting of its earnings that, for the most part, beat the street, but offered guidance that gave investors pause. This will rekindle talk of a tech bubble... 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Charles Payne

Kaci Hickox, Self-Absorbed Hero

TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
There is something uniquely jarring about a display of selfish insolence from someone who is so praiseworthy in other respects. Maddening traits usually come from maddening people, as their true character surfaces. 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Mark Davis

Trying to Silence Bill Maher in the Cradle of Free Speech

TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
"The students at the University of California at Berkeley represent a diverse array of students from all walks of life," begins the student petition. Somehow you just know that before the end, the document will demand that the administration muzzle someone -- for the sake of diversity. The spirit of far-left censors trumps exposure to novel ideas. Hence the petition, titled "Stop Bill Maher from speaking at UC Berkeley's December graduation." 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Debra J. Saunders

Taking a Vacation from Vacations

TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
It's sad. Used to be, you'd spend 50 weeks a year waiting for your vacation -- two blissful weeks without ringing telephones, raging bosses, insane assignments, bottomless responsibilities, weirdo co-workers, and life-threatening paper cuts. Now, you don't get two weeks vacation and 50 weeks work. Now, you get 52 weeks of vacation and, if you can squeeze in a day or two of work, well, what kind of sucker are you? 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Bob Goldman

Ferguson, the Insurgency Grows

President Obama vs. Franklin Graham on Islam

TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
According to President Obama, this figure of three million Muslims would make us one of the biggest Muslim nations. Was he accurate? Not by a mile. Not by many, many miles. In fact, he was embarrassingly wrong and inaccurate. 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Michael Brown

Getting Stuff Done

TownHall Latest columns - 20 min 48 sec ago
Prognosticators are predicting a Republican takeover of the United States Senate, and a pickup of a few seats in the House of Representatives. Driven in large part by the unpopularity of President Barack Obama (latest Gallup poll 42 percent approve, 53 percent disapprove of Obama), this potential change in control provides both an opportunity and a risk for Republicans. 2014-10-30T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-30T18:35:04Z Jackie Gingrich Cushman
