Inversion or Perversion?

The house is on fire and the occupants are eating dinner and not paying attention. While our tax base is being whittled away by large American corporations, members of Congress are twiddling their thumbs and doing nothing. The willingness of Congress to allow these “inversions” to occur is another sign of the dysfunction in Washington and the “perversion” in the American political system. To escape higher corporate taxes in the U.S.,...

Obama’s Sanctions on Russia are the ‘Only Real Sanctions’ (Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland)

If President Obama is ‘weak,’ than everyone else is weaker. For Poland’s Gazeta Wyborcza, Mariusz Zawadzki reminds Obama’s ever-expanding number of critics that the president has not only been the most consistent leader since the Ukraine crisis began, but that the sanctions he has imposed on Russia have been the toughest in the world, and what’s more, they work. For the Gazeta Wyborcza, Mariusz Zawadzki...

Pro-business populism?

WASHINGTON — Here’s the thing to watch in this year’s campaign: Democrats are trying to be populists and pro-business moderates at the same time. The tea party’s success in transforming the Republican Party is making this two-step possible as conservatism’s increasingly ferocious opposition to government creates points of friction with both business and middle-class constituencies. On the one hand: Sen....

Your Problem with Guns or Gays Is Not Political

Last month, I did something I’d done only once before: I went to a range and shot some guns. Lots of guns. All shapes, ages and sizes. This is a very strange thing to do for a guy born British. Guns feature nowhere in British culture. Accordingly, I was unsurprised by the reaction of my mother when I called home and told her that I’d had a great time learning about firearms and discovering I wasn’t a bad shot, even with a...

Richard Mellon Scaife’s sins live on…

I doubt there’s a truly thoughtful person alive today who mourns the death of one of radical conservatism’s supporters — Richard Mellon Scaife. Focus on that middle name first, because that’s the family and the money that made him possible. A radical crank and one of the most vicious political funders, he paid the Republican party to attack its opposition personally. This was Mellon money, more’s the pity...

Dr Oz’s Dead End Brick Road

Pity poor Dr. Mehmet Oz. He gets big bucks hosting the popular Opra Winfrey-syndicated “The Dr. Oz Show” on TV. But now he’s come under fire in Congress, in the media, and on the Internet for promoting health supplements that sold big due to his effusive recommendations — products now considered by many to be largely useless. How did he respond? With a technique we’ve seen used all too often by...

After Hobby Lobby

WASHINGTON — It’s not often that social and corporate conservatives come together, but the five right-of-center justices on the U.S. Supreme Court fashioned exactly this synthesis in their Hobby Lobby decision this week. In a religious freedom case related to birth control, the majority focused on the liberties of the company’s owners, not of those who work for them. More than that, the justices continued to press...

Will The Safety Recall Tsunami Force General Motors To Finally Change It’s Culture? Don’t Bet On It.

With 29 million cars now having been recalled by General Motors for safety problems — which is substantially more than the 22 million recalled last year by all automakers combined — it is easy to conclude that GM has learned little from its turbulent recent past, which has included hemorrhaging market share for decades because of a crappy product line and then a near-death bankruptcy averted by a taxpayer and labor union...

Will Amazon Take A Hit On J.K. Rowling’s Latest?

The Silkworm, a new detective novel by Robert Galbraith, is the guaranteed hottest bestseller of the summer. If you’ve never heard of Galbraith, try J.K. Rowling, who has now written two books under that nomme de plume since publishing the last book of her wildly popular Harry Potter series. But what makes the buzz over this book different than the usual reviews of recommended beach-reading mystery fare is that Amazon, by far...
