Bursting the limits to growth

"What's in your wallet?" is more than a punchline in a TV commercial. It's the question that breadwinners ask themselves every day. How they answer determines whether they're gaining or losing ground in the race for prosperity.

A sad note in World Series Week

This week millions of Americans, including political junkies who are sometimes more passionate about baseball than politics (particularly after a nip or two of fine old Kentucky bourbon in the shank of an evening with old friends), will interrupt their arguing over the occasional merits and manifold shortcomings of Hillary and the Donald, to retire to the sport pages and the World Series.

Where are the Bushes?

Where are the Bushes during this election cycle? Why have they apparently been silent, and whom does their silence benefit? Let's remember which party they belonged to when they ran and got elected. The family comprises two former presidents of the United States and one former governor of Florida, and today their voices are absent. Jeb Bush even promised to support the chosen GOP candidate.

Consider cap on election spending

I cannot wait until this election is over. Hillary Clinton lied to the FBI and the American people, using a private email server in her home for State Department business. WikiLeaks divulged how some Clinton supporters were paid to disrupt Donald Trump's campaign events.

Dirty tricks: Then and now

Students of the Watergate era (or those old enough to have lived through it) will recall the "dirty tricks" played by Richard Nixon's henchmen, most notably Donald Segretti. Mr. Segretti, who was hired by Nixon's deputy assistant, Dwight Chapin, was tasked with smearing Democrats, including 1972 presidential candidate Sen. Edmund Muskie of Maine.

When voters have regret

Four years from now, will you regret having voted for the person you chose this year for president? In decision theory, there is a concept called "regret," which is the emotion experienced when realizing that an alternative course of action would have likely resulted in a more favorable outcome.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Rogue Heroes'

They were the pirates of the desert, the mavericks of war who took terrifying risks to infiltrate behind enemy lines -- and World War II might not have been won without them.

The Clintons' top 10 pay-to-play scandals

- The Washington Times

The Clintons' have been involved in an elaborate pay-to-play scheme, auctioning off their personal time and government access, to the highest bidder. The Clinton Foundation was the vehicle used by foreign governments and dignitaries, in which they would donate money to in exchange for time with the potential next president, the former president, or beneficial treatment from the U.S. government while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State.

Bill Clinton the real danger to women

The recent disclosure of Donald Trump's past 'locker-room' blather remains disheartening. But what are more than taxing to digest and countenance are the self-righteous pontifications from the likes of assorted major media columnists and other hypocritical miscreants of the far left regarding this regrettable Trump behavior.

A little tease by the Donald

Donald Trump may be having a little fun, even if his friends and foes, who are worrying about what happens on Nov. 8, are not. They're not sure why he said he wouldn't accept defeat, nor what, exactly, he meant. He hardly clarified his meaning to them the next day when he said he would accept the voters' verdict "if I win."

Hillary unsafe at any 'speed'

While all of Queen Clinton's media and all of the establishment cockroaches are scurrying out from under their rocks and clamoring for Donald Trump to withdraw from the race, it is perhaps worthwhile to recall Hillary Clinton's own hypocritical track record on issues of character ("When character is in season," Web, Oct. 19).

Obama-sanctioned misogyny OK

President and Mrs. Obama have invited numerous rappers to the White House over their years in residence, rappers whose lyrics are not only as misogynistic as the Donald's spoken words back in 2005, but much more violent ("And they call it puppy love," Web, Oct. 18).
