Waiting for Obama

Reality is writing a harsh chapter in the long and tortured history of Venezuela. What happens there is not just the occasional outside intervention to keep the peace. International companies, and not just American companies, are getting clobbered by the hapless manipulation of currency by a government rapidly moving toward chaos.

BOOK REVIEW: 'My Name is Lucy Barton'

"You'll write your one story many ways. Don't ever worry about story. You have only one ... If there is a weakness in your story, address it head-on, take it in your teeth and address it, before the reader really knows."

Renewable Fuel Standard a win-win

Ever since the Iowa caucuses, the oil industry's spinmeisters have ramped up their misinformation campaign regarding ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) ("Renewable Fuel Standard deceit," Web, Feb. 8).

Unhappy days are here again

Those are birds of prey beginning to circle over Hillary Clinton and her campaign, and nervous Democrats are beginning to think the unthinkable. Maybe the party just won't buy another Clinton.

Ruinous transformation deliberate

Thank you for running "Obama is no incompetent" by Don Feder (Web, Feb. 11). Mr. Feder's analysis is right on the money; President Obama knows exactly what he is doing. I believe he was certain, too, that his plans to "fundamentally" change this nation would succeed because he knew the mainstream media, liberal to its core, would support everything he did and never challenge him.

The hydra-headed monster stalking Hillary

Feminism is the hydra-headed monster stalking Hillary Clinton's campaign for president. She once thought her appeal to women, as the first of her "gender" to get a real crack at the presidency, was straightforward, unambiguous and unstoppable, but now she can't hear the cheers for the cacophony of squabbling female voices.

Candidates, answer Obama question

This nation is in serious trouble, both domestically and internationally. We have open borders, illegal immigration, a looming financial crisis with a national debt nearing $20 trillion and unfunded governmental obligations totaling more than $100 trillion. We also have growing welfare programs and a level of polarization never seen before in this country.

Women in combat unconscionable

I am the father of three women and the grandfather of three girls. I am also a retired Army officer who graduated from West Point and has seen combat. Therefore, when I heard that the Army chief of staff and the commandant of the Marine Corps had called for women to be subject to selective service, I became apoplectic.

Self-driven cars are on the way

Machines with a mind of their own are the future, and self-driving automobiles will soon be sharing the road with cars and trucks with real drivers. Labor-saving devices are always welcome, and driving on roads in the congested communities where most Americans live is certainly a chore.

Obama's slick oil tax

When every problem looks like a shortage of cash, every solution looks like a tax. President Obama sees a $10 surcharge on every barrel of oil the nation consumes as the key to fixing America's transportation system. The dramatic decline in global oil prices has put money back into the pockets of Americans, and predictably, the president intends to seize what he imagines is his "fair share."
