John Hawkins, The only thing worse than never achieving your dreams is to achieve all of them and then have no idea what to do next.

John Hawkins, If you were to list the “greatest” nations in world history, you’d come up with some like the United States and Great Britain that are still doing fairly well.

Dave Duffy, My wife and I own a couple of smoothie/food shops. As small-business entrepreneurs, we take a lot of pride in providing 55 jobs while making payroll every week, all self-financed as saved- and scrimped-for investment capital.

Austin Bay, A quick scan of existing and emerging threats to the U.S. and its vital interests ought to end any lingering debate. The Pentagon must prepare to fight two simultaneous wars in two widely separated geo-political theaters. Right now, I don’t think we can do it. During the Cold War, the U.S. prepared to
Larry Elder, GQ magazine named former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its 2017 “Citizen of the Year.” In doing so, GQ overlooked NFL Houston Texans’ J.J.

Michael Brown, Since when did the gospel become associated with guns? Since when did the Christian faith become linked to the right to bear arms? Lest I be misunderstood, this article is not about gun control, nor is it about the Second Amendment. I am not asking whether Christians should serve in the military and
Ann Coulter, We are now nearly a quarter of the way through the entire Trump presidency — and, depending how the 2018 elections go, we could be at the halfway mark.
