BLOOMBERG NEWS The insurance-buying mandate in President Barack Obama's health-care reform legislation is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled. U.S. District Judge Christopher C.

THOMAS SOWELL Ninety years ago -- in 1921 -- federal income-tax policies reached an absurdity that many people today seem to want to repeat. Those who believe in high taxes on "the rich" got their way. The tax rate on people in the top income bracket was 73 percent in 1921. On the other hand, the rich also got their way: They didn't actually pay those taxes... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Be careful, if you dare to criticize Citizen Obama, comrade. The Web is watching.

NEWSMAX Voters in California are beginning to turn on President Barack Obama, a move that calls into question whether he can pull off a re-election bid without this must-win state.

DAVID LIMBAUGH It is very disheartening to see Republican presidential primary candidates racing to out-demagogue one another in denouncing Texas Gov. Rick Perry's accurate description of Social Security as a Ponzi scheme. It used to be that Republicans at least waited until the general election campaign to pander to liberals... (more)

TERENCE P. JEFFREY Mitt Romney may believe Social Security is constitutional, but he would have a hard time convincing some of the people who pushed the Social Security Act into law. As I wrote in my book, "Control Freaks," some of the main players involved in creating Social Security believed it was unconstitutional -- and for good reason... (more)

MONA CHAREN There is a brand of Republican who looks at President Obama's vulnerability on the economy and says, "Go for it!" They argue that the overriding issue of the campaign should be jobs -- and that everything else should be a distant second... (more)

JOHN STOSSEL Ponzi! Ponzi! Ponzi! There, I said it. To the extent people believe there are trust funds with their names on them, Social Security is absolutely a Ponzi scheme. So is Medicare. People need to hear it. Many people think that when the government takes payroll tax from their paychecks, it goes to something like a savings account... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN With the scandalous bankruptcy of Solyndra (a shady California solar power company that received $535 million in stimulus funds and is now under investigation by the FBI) hanging overhead, President Obama wisely whitewashed any mention of "green jobs" out of his latest address to Congress...

JAMES R. EDWARDS, JR. The Obama administration is taking steps to grant what amounts to amnesty to as many as 300,000 illegal aliens. In a recent announcement on a sleepy August Friday in Washington, D.C., the Department of Homeland Security​ directed immigration enforcement officials to start dropping cases against as many deportable alien lawbreakers as possible...

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Most Americans who pay attention to politics believe Hollywood's political influence in American life and culture is heavily weighted on the left. Steven J. Ross, a historian who teaches at the University of Southern California, begs to differ.

FRANK GAFFNEY So, where are we 10 years after 9/11? It is comforting that we have been blessed with a near-unbroken decade without further mass-casualty attacks since those that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately, our government is pursuing policies that can only encourage those who aspire to do us harm to redouble their efforts... (more)

LOOKING AT THE LEFT September 11, 2011, is the tenth anniversary of that morning in 2001 when a 7th century Arabian warriors' creed attacked the very heart of the modern world at the dawn of the 21st century.
