Columns

I read Leslie Wimes' column Friday about Andrew Gillum, and I'm not one bit surprised she thinks Gillum walks on water, same as she thinks Obama did.
Remember the stories that surrounded Barack Obama when he first decided to run for president? I do.
Democrat John Ossoff loses in Georgia June 20
Putting Humpty back together is off to a rocky start. Could there have been a more disastrous week for the Democrats?
The U.S. shoots down a Syrian fighter-bomber. Iran launches missiles into eastern Syria. Russia threatens to attack coalition aircraft west of the Euphrates. What is going on?
We got the headline on Tuesday's Citizens' rate increase story wrong. It wasn't the abuses that forced a 5.3 percent average increase in Citizens' insurance policies in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. It was the Florida Legislature, pure and simple.
You can fool some of the people all of the time. You can fool all of the people some of the time. You can't fool all of the people all of the time. Stephen Bittel isn't fooling the majority of black folks right now.
"Contrary" does not quite capture Steve King's astringency. The Iowa native and conservative congressman was born, appropriately, in Storm Lake, and carries turbulence with him. He also carries experience of actual life before politics, when he founded a construction company, which is one reason he has long advocated an excellent idea -- repeal of the Davis-Bacon law.

The House Ways & Means Committee has held its first hearings on tax reform this year and the business community in this country is optimistic that our elected officials may be able to pass legislation to fix our tax code. This is an opportunity that may not come again and it is imperative that something be passed as soon as possible, because the American economy cannot wait another 30 years for reform.
