  • Rank the Candidates

    Rank the Candidates

  • Breaking the Rules

    Breaking the Rules

    Humans need rules. Rules make life more predictable. But when the rules multiply, the world needs some rule-breakers.

    Immigration Is Great

    Yikes, you really hate me!

  • Gun Lies

    Gun Lies

    My town, New York City, enforces rigid gun laws. Police refused to assign me a gun permit. The law doesn’t even let me hold a fake gun on TV to demonstrate something.

    Governed by Zealots

    The government’s environmental rules defeat even environmentalists.

    Hillary Clinton gave a speech warning that the new “sharing economy” of businesses such as the rideshare company Uber is “raising hard questions about workplace protections.”

  • Progress

    Progress

    Obamacare! The War on Drugs! A War on Poverty! Prohibition! The idea that government will bring social progress isn’t new.

  • Wealth Gap

    Wealth Gap

    Nearly 10,000 people turned out to hear Bernie Sanders in Wisconsin. Why? Apparently, many Democrats want socialism.

    Have you seen the new Jurassic Park movie, “Jurassic World?”

  • Mankiller Money?

    Mankiller Money?

    A woman will be on the new $10 bill, bumping Alexander Hamilton aside. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says he will choose the woman by year’s end, based on “input from the public.”

  • The Anti-Science Left

    The Anti-Science Left

    This year is the 10th anniversary of a book called “The Republican War on Science.” I could just as easily write a book called “The Democratic War on Science.”

  • Green Lies

    Green Lies

    Millions go to SeaWorld to learn more about sea life and get closer to killer whales. But fewer go now because the documentary “Blackfish” exposed what one reporter called “the darker side” of SeaWorld.

  • Socialist "Justice"

    Socialist “Justice”

    Protesters demand “social justice.” I hate their chant. If I oppose their cause, then I’m for social “injustice”? Nonsense.

  • Don't Go!

    Don’t Go!

    It’s graduation time! Have we learned much? No. College has become a scam.

  • Dr. Capitalism

    Dr. Capitalism

    For years, my scientist brother Tom was the nonpolitical Stossel.

  • Disobey!

    Disobey!

    Charles Murray, already controversial for writing books on how welfare hurts the poor, on ethnic differences in IQ and on (less controversial, but my favorite) happiness and good government, has written a new book that argues that it’s time for civil disobedience.

  • Hillary's Armor

    Hillary’s Armor

    “This vast right-wing conspiracy,” Hillary Clinton said, “has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced.” That was the “feminist” first lady’s response when her husband was accused of having sex with a 21-year-old.

  • What Creates Jobs

    What Creates Jobs

    I took a camera to Times Square this week and asked people, “What creates jobs?” Most had no answer.

  • The Next President

    The Next President

    It’s not smart to get too enthusiastic about any politician. I’ve been disappointed often.

  • Freedom of and from Religion

    Freedom of and from Religion

    Religious oppression was one reason many of our ancestors came to America. They wanted to escape rulers who demanded that everyone worship their way. In Ireland, Catholics couldn’t vote or own a gun.
