WASHINGTON -- The Syrian refugee debate has become a national embarrassment. It begins with a president, desperate to deflect attention from the collapse of his foreign policy, retreating to his one safe zone -- ad hominem attacks on critics, this time for lack of compassion toward Syrian widows and orphans.
WASHINGTON -- Give thanks this day for some indirect blessings of liberty, including the behavior-beyond-satire of what are generously called institutions of higher education. People who are imprecisely called educators have taught, by their negative examples, what intelligence is not.
Sorry, but I'm not buying into the attempt to shame Americans into accepting hordes  of Syrian refugees.
Each of our two political parties, ancient by world standards, seems to be facing a gathering storm. 
Death happens to the best of us, and also to the worst.
I am proud to be a part of the Florida delegation, representing the great Sunshine State and its residents. Florida knows how to do travel and tourism right!
As much as we talk about protecting the First Amendment in this country, with each generation apparently we get further away from understanding it.
There is a painful irony in a recent decision of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, on the side of Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, whom the U.S. Department of Justice tried to stop from making charter schools widely available to minority youngsters in his state.
Those working to give Florida kids a good education deserve some props for noting the fact that liberals support those efforts, and have for decades.
When Islamic terrorist attacks cause mass casualties, like the horrific events in Paris, it's all well and good to preach the obvious that ISIS killers don't represent all Muslims, any more than the Nazis represented all the German people. But what is wholly unacceptable is any attempt to drag Christianity into a moral-equivalency game with radical Islam.

Do you think describing terrorists as "radical Islamists" and "Islamic jihadists" is unfair to Muslims living peacefully in America?
