Conservatives must own their place in the GOP

As we look back on 2013, it will likely be remembered as the year the rubber began hitting the road with regards to Obamacare. The failure of the website was epic, but it is minutia compared to the flaws in the law.

Growing up isn’t what it used to be

At a recent seminar I listened as the presenter explained the social phenomenon now understood as "expanding adolescence." It's quite simple. While in the 1950's the life stage known as adolescence was defined as the 12-18 age period, it is now recognized that adolescence often expands up to 30 years of age. And if you just take a careful look around, you'll see this is no hair-brained idea.

Obama keeps calm

There is no denying that Barack Obama has had a long and difficult row to hoe. On the night of his inauguration in 2009, 13 Republican House and Senate leaders, plus Newt Gingrich and spinmeister Frank Luntz, met secretly in Washington to coordinate tactics to destroy his presidency.

Sending letters to Santa

I don't know why it happens every year. Our offices here at the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy get inundated with letters addressed to Saint Nicholas. We forward as many as we can to the Jolly Old Elf but a few we keep behind to share with you. Enjoy.

David Hegg: We need to change perspective

While I was not yet living when it was fought, World War II has shaped so much of the world in which I have lived. It framed the whole idea of valor and courage and sacrificial service. And it wasn't only those who served in uniform who experienced the war, and felt that they played a vital part in bringing about a good and swift conclusion to it. In truth, we were a nation at war. Soldier and civilian were on the same team, working for a common goal, with mutual respect and honor.
