JOHN FUND The Obama administration's efforts to get Congress to pass an authorization for military force against Syria are going badly in policy terms, but they are looking up in political terms.

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY The problem with Obamacare isn't only that it's careening toward a financial train wreck. It's also a slush fund to pay off Obama's political activists to carry out a massive invasion of privacy that dwarfs the NSA's collection of personal data on American citizens.... (more)
