Bob Dickson: Jesus Christ and Karl Marx ... who knew

Kevin Buck: Semper Fi

Savvy conservatives long ago figured out that those of us on the political left are not guided by conscience or individually acquired thought. So they've concluded.

Betty Arenson: Vote smart in every election

It's one thing to know you and your wallet have been the victims of a legal money-grabbing scam, but to get repeatedly sucker-punched while you are still reeling is the second atrocity.

In January of this year, I was invited to be a part of a trade delegation visiting Shenzhen, a city in China. The trip was being organized by a gentleman who had worked at the county's economic trade council and had now moved on to greener pastures.

David Hegg: The resurrection of Jesus is proof that God exists

Every year as the "spring break" scene is played out with unfettered passion on the beaches of Florida we are treated to news footage of college students throwing caution – and restraint – to the wind. For a week they act out their core ethic, that the best life is one without care or constraint.
