W.E. Gutman: Libertarianism: A lofty ideal or simply artifice?

So, you call yourself a "Libertarian?" You're not alone. But do you fully understand a term that has been sloppily coined and deceptively marketed?

Tim Myers: The decline of football is all in the numbers

Back in the late 1990s, a sports reporter contacted me to obtain a quote concerning an upcoming Hart-Valencia football game during the 10 years the Vikings tried (and failed) to obtain a victory during many regular season and playoff games.

Gary Horton: Don't mess with Texas

Last week, all-around good guy and Signal business columnist Frank Norton wrote that perhaps it's time we give up on our Golden State for the greener pasture "low tax" states of Texas, Nevada and locales further afield.

Stupak is as Stupak does

I'm cheering for health care reform, even though I'm resigned to a debate heavily influenced by special interests. This chapter of American history would turn Jimmy Stewart's Mr. Smith into a die-hard cynic.

Organized Labor has a long and storied history in America. Approximately 1 in 10 Americans claim they are a member of one. But as the economy that tanked in late 2007 continues to resist a rebound, Americans are beginning to ask themselves if labor unions are part of the solution or a big part of the problem.

Is the Afghan conflict the U.S.' Waterloo?

The axiom that the world's destiny is in the hands of bankers and industrialists is never more evident than in wartime. The lords of capital and the cannon merchants thrive on the menace of conflict and the conduct of war. They prosper when the first shots ring out. No sooner do hostilities cease than they itch for another war, another opportunity to pillage the national treasury.

Phil Rizzo: Defense spending: The silent coup

If you study the United States' budget since the end of WWII, it is clear that it has gradually become dominated by the military. Defense Department expenditures will exceed three quarters of a trillion dollars this year alone.

David Hegg: We don’t have to think alike

In every ordered and civilized society the rule of law plays an essential role. Given that human nature is too often selfish and sometimes even cruel, laws are enacted to declare the boundaries between right and wrong. Laws form the lens through which society views the actions of those individuals who choose to live in the group.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface.
