  • EDITORIAL: Ryan wants reforms that will get Americans working again

    Published: Fri, Aug 1, 2014

    Paul Ryan's vision could restore a work ethic that made this country the envy of the world. Politicians gain a hungry man's favor by giving him a fish. Teaching the hungry to catch fish takes more effort and comes with no instant political reward. In a culture of growing dependence,...

    Israel isn't an aggressor We take issue with those who label Israel an aggressor and an inhumane country. When there was a lull in the first week of this war, Israel provided Gaza with 4,400 tons of food, 900 tons of natural gas and 3.2 million liters of diesel fuel. The nation also...
