How To Prevent The Next Paris Tragedy

“Thoughts and prayers won’t stop the next attack. This war against civilization must be fought or lost.”


The Moral Meaning Behind Thanksgiving

What should we really be celebrating on Thanksgiving?


Eureka! Gold!

Yesterday I wrote in this column that we had taken a position, as advisor, in a couple of gold stocks — Newmont Mining and Homestake Mining. It’s been over 20 years since I’ve traded gold stocks — doing it again took me back to my earliest days...

Social Security and the Stock Market

Recent fluctuations in the stock market have been used by some liberal politicians as a reason why Social Security should not be privatized. What if someone invests retirement money in the stock market, instead of in Social Security, and then retires at a point when...

Que Pasa, Senor Bush?

If you thought ethnic pandering disappeared from the White House with the silverware and the Clintons, think again. Last weekend, President Bush proudly delivered the first White House radio address in Spanish. “Republican strategists” — media-hungry...
