The President and congress should work together on military intervention

In his speech last week outlining his plans to use military force against the jihadists of the Islamic State, President Obama gave Congress only passing mention. “I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL,” he said. “But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.”He’s right, of course. But that’s not the half of it.We live in troubled times, and over the last decade or two our milit...

September is a time for reminiscing

September, oh glorious September; a prelude to fall’s coming displays. A time to reflect on summers past, as Mother Nature readies herself for harsh winter winds that will surely come - and I find myself pausing and remembering.

What my priorities will be

When Mitch McConnell speaks to the Koch brothers and the other billionaires who bankroll his campaign, he pledges to them what he will NOT do. He will not permit votes, or even debate, on raising the minimum wage. He will not permit votes, or even debate, on extending unemployment insurance. He will not permit votes, or even debate, on easing student loan debt.I prefer to tell Kentuckians what I WILL do.I will fight for you and for Kentucky every day that I am in the Uni...

The NLRB’s contribution to Obama’s anti-business crusade

Having written earlier this summer about the whack-a-mole regulatory state running wild under the presidency of Barack Obama, the biggest question in my mind was which of the myriad federal regulatory agencies would be the next to throw a monkey wrench into the economy. It was a foregone conclusion that the EPA would be one of those agencies, and they haven’t disappointed, but the other most egregious offender is the National Labor Relations Board.

This election puts women in the driver’s seat

Let’s be clear. As the majority of the population, the majority of registered voters, and the majority of those who actually show up at the polls, women can determine the outcome of any election.In a year when abortion restrictions were piled on at the state level, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations can deny employees birth control coverage, and equal pay legislation was stymied in the Senate by a Republican filibuster, this demographic reality could boost female Democ...

How Ray Rice proves Freud wrong

As a 21st century data-driven psychologist, I find it difficult to invoke the name of Sigmund Freud. In fact, when trying to type his name, I misspelled it on my first three attempts. Some sort of slip, I guess. It has been suggested by some that Freud’s influence today is more noteworthy in the field of literature than in the field of psychology. As it turns out, many of his psychoanalytic ideas have not been supported by research data.

Don’t know much about history? Don’t take this course!

Prominent American architecture critic Martin Filler once observed: “The variable posthumous reputations of even the greatest artists and the unpredictable revivals of interest in even the most obscure ones tend to reveal more about those who make revisionist assessments than about those who are being reassessed.”Filler was talking about art, of course, but his observation could apply to revisionists who greatly influenced the redesigned Advanced Placement U.S. History ...

Railroads have played a major role in the development of America for more than 150 years. The growth and progress can be shown with the expansion of the railroads north and south and then westward all the way to the Pacific Ocean. The term “Robber Barons” was given to the early railroad owners who were sometimes ruthless in their westward expansion. Many of the wealthiest families in America gained their fortunes through their association with the railroads.

Lake Malone news

After all the rain that we had this Labor Day week end, Mother Nature really did her stuff tonight. It is the day after the Holiday Disaster and we had the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen on the lake. I looked out my window just as the sun was going over the hill in front of our house and the clouds look like great big marshmallows that were floating through the sky and the sky behind them was a brilliant pink! I just went out on the porch and sit and watch as the marshmallow clouds fl...
