The 50 year war.

The poverty rate in America stands essentially unchanged from its level on this day 50 years ago. If nothing else, the War of Poverty has proved the words of the scripture in which Jesus said, “The poor you will always have with you.”

Recently, in an apostolic statement Pope Francis said, in effect, that capitalism is OK with him on the condition that we feed the poor. I say, with all deference to the Holy Father, that we can feed the poor only on the condition that we have capitalism.

The United States did not seek the role of defender of world peace. We were doomed to it by the events of the mid 20th century.

Until Obamacare went “live,” most people viewed the debate on health care as purely political and mostly abstract. Now it's real and the reality is causing heartburn for the Obama administration.
