I was having lunch at the Oar House in Portsmouth, NH when I heard the latest news from the Whorehouse in Washington, D.C. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.

Flags have always aroused the passions of the people. Like the heraldic emblems often emblazoned on them, flags have long been used in battle to identify the opposing combatants. But why all this fuss over an emblem that is 127 years old?

In an attempt at ideological conquest, a drone containing abortion drugs will be sent from Germany into Poland this weekend.

This year may see the end of Ex-Im making new loans as it winds down existing outstanding business and soon closes its doors. No congressional action is needed. It should be allowed to die.

Today we're not held to reality. For example, one does not have to accept the limitations of biology. Say that one is born with XX sex chromosomes and is therefore female or that one is born with XY sex chromosomes and is therefore male. One doesn't have to accept nature's determination. An XXer can say that he's a male. Or an XYer can say he's a she. One's sex is seen as optional. Moreover, if a male claims to be a female, others are expected to acknowledge that.

Even the Vatican may be surprised at the massive amount of praise Pope Francis’ latest encyclical is receiving. That’s because of its passionate advocacy of the need to take strong action in the face of global warming — and its equally strong denunciation of capitalism and free markets. No wonder the left loves it!

The U.S. Supreme Court could well blow the Democrats’ cover in King v. Burwell if it rules that people in the 37 states that did not establish an Exchange cannot legally get taxpayer subsidies for health insurance.

The subsidies hide the reality. People generally look only at what they themselves have to pay. They do not care what faceless taxpayers are paying to insurance companies for their policies.

On June 20, 1787, Oliver Ellsworth warned against the dangers of a con-con and reminded delegates of the superiority of states.

In simple terms, the institution known as marriage is a union between one man and one woman. Without doubt, this is what America’s Founders believed.

A civilized society's first line of defense is not the law, police and courts but customs, traditions, rules of etiquette and moral values.
