    There’s a reason the text version of Camille Paglia’s opening statement at the Munk Debate, “Resolved: Men Are Obsolete” garnered 10K likes on Facebook and received more than one thousand comments at it hit a nerve. It was a nerve that needed to be hit, and Paglia did it beautifully. Not only was her choice of words fitting, she delivered them with the perfect amount of exasperation. America must revisit its distorted view of gender equality, implored Paglia, and start being fair to the other half of the human race. Men’s success in fields such as medicine, engineering and...

    ‘Uh-oh.” That’s the sound being uttered in doctors’ offices and hospitals across the country as medical providers realize they’re getting stuck with another bottomless Obamacare bill. While the White House desperately tries to pivot from the havoc wrought by the Affordable Care Act, its hidden regulatory bombs keep exploding. I heard about the latest problem this week from an eye-doctor friend who received a letter from a Colorado-based insurer informing her that she’s essentially on the hook for Obamacare’s payment grace period for debtors. The optometrist is bracing for a flood of similar letters from other insurers. Like countless other...

    CNET has learned the FBI has developed custom "port reader" software to intercept Internet metadata in real time. And, in some cases, it wants to force Internet providers to use the software. The U.S. government is quietly pressuring telecommunications providers to install eavesdropping technology deep inside companies' internal networks to facilitate surveillance efforts. FBI officials have been sparring with carriers, a process that has on occasion included threats of contempt of court, in a bid to deploy government-provided software capable of intercepting and analyzing entire communications streams. The FBI's legal position during these discussions is that the software's real-time interception...

    On the morning after Sunday's vote to revamp the health care system, Bob Caulk contemplated the enormous task of extending health care coverage to the nation's millions of uninsured. Caulk, chief executive officer of The Effort, spoke enthusiastically about expanding his nonprofit chain of clinics, based in midtown Sacramento, into more places. "We're going to be ready, and other clinics are trying to gear up," Caulk said. "The question is: Where are you going to put all these people in a system that's not yet designed to accommodate them?"

    WASHINGTON, March 18, 2008 – Help for servicemembers coping with the effects of wartime service is just a phone call or a mouse click away, thanks to a nationwide network of mental health professionals. “Give an Hour” is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that has created a national network of mental health professionals providing free counseling services to returning veterans and their loved ones, according to Barbara Romberg, the group’s founder and president. “The participating mental health professionals will offer a wide range of services including individual, marital and family therapy, substance abuse counseling, and treatment for post traumatic stress...

    WASHINGTON - Leading Internet companies, in an unusual joint effort among corporate rivals, announced six lawsuits Wednesday against hundreds of people accused of sending millions of unwanted e-mails in violation of the new federal law against "spam." The legal actions by Microsoft Corp., America Online Inc., Earthlink Inc. and Yahoo! Inc (NasdaqNM:YHOO - news)., represent the first major industry actions under the "can spam" legislation that went into effect Jan. 1. The suits were filed in federal courts in California, Georgia, Virginia and Washington state. Dozens of those named were identified only as "John Doe" defendants accused of e-mailing unwanted...
  • Holiday for Abortionists—Seriously

    This Wednesday, March 10th, is a holiday with which you may not be familiar, but should be: the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers. The very fact that there exists such a “holiday”—created in 1996 and co-sponsored by more than twenty major groups, including Planned Parenthood and National Organization for Women (NOW)—says everything you need to know about the pro-abortion movement today. Most ordinary Americans who identify themselves as “pro-choice” would be disgusted that abortion providers are being hailed as heroes. Even to people who support keeping the procedure legal, abortion is not something to be glorified. The National...
