  • On the Right Side: Dems should learn surge is working

    It was fun watching the Democrats leave another televised hearing with egg on their faces. I'm talking about the congressional hearings last week involving Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker.

  • On the Right Side: To enhance appeal, Dems rely on lies

    Dementia. The dictionary defines it as "the usually progressive deterioration of intellectual functions such as memory that can occur while other brain functions such as those controlling movement and senses are retained."

  • On the Right Side: Pelosi's acts bordering on treason

    Shameful. Just when you thought the Democratic-controlled House couldn't sink any lower in being a do-nothing, incompetent Congress, nearing a historical single-digit public approval rating, it has proceeded in accomplishing just that.

  • On the Right Side: Sympathy for money borrowers unnecessary

    The sky is falling! The sky is falling! What to do, what to do? So goes the mantra of the Bush administration, all the presidential candidates (except Huckabee) and both houses of Congress, especially those individuals running for re-election.  I am talking about the current subprime, adjustable rate mortgage "crisis." The solution is simple.

  • On the Right Side: Today is big, but not the end

    As you are reading this column, we are in the middle of Super Tuesday primaries, and although important, the races will still be competitive after the day has concluded and the results are known.

  • On the Right Side: Changing climate isn't man's fault

    I just received confirmation for my upcoming trip and found that I could assuage my conscience by "offsetting my trip's carbon emissions."

  • On the Right Side: Books point out fallacies of atheism

    Well, we survived another Christmas, and the atheists (agnostics, secularists, non-theists, or whatever they want to call themselves) had an even lesser impact than in previous years.

  • On the Right Side: Thomas' book is a must-read

    I recently finished a great book that I would highly recommend to everyone, even my liberal friends, as long as they can read it with an open mind.

  • On the Right Side: Limbaugh supports U.S. troops

    A few weeks ago, there was a letter to the editor that beat me to the punch regarding that despicable little man, Harry Reid, and his lies about Rush Limbaugh.

  • On The Right Side: Need a VP, GOP? Pick Huckabee

    At a Hartwick College tailgate party two Saturdays ago (Hartwick won another huge game that Saturday), a fellow conservative friend and I were talking. After a while, he asked me who I thought would be the candidate chosen from each party for the upcoming 2008 elections.

  • On The Right Side: Duke team still lacks apologies

    This column marks my second full year of writing in this column for The Daily Star. It's amazing how fast time flies when you're having fun. It looks like the upcoming year is going to provide me with a number of controversial topics, and I certainly look forward to this.

  • On the Right Side: Book tells truth about Duke event

    If anyone wants to read a great book about the true story of the Duke lacrosse non-rape event, you should read ``It's Not About The Truth, The Untold Story of the Duke Lacrosse Case and the Lives It Shattered,'' by Don Yaeger. A Duke alumni had read my column about the Duke case and student athletes in general and graciously sent me a copy.

  • On the Right Side: Hillary still lacks character

    Every once and a while you get to have a glimpse of the true character of an individual. No political speech writers, political advisers or spin doctors are around to tell you what to say. You are on your own.

  • On the Right Side: Petraeus shamed his persecutors

    Slam dunk. Total success. That's about all you can say about the General Petraeus Iraq war hearings last week. Once again, the public saw a highly competent, professional man of true integrity staying calm

  • On the Right Side: Speciation has never been observed

    Finally, as promised, my last column on evolution (I think). There is so much more to talk about and three columns can’t give the topic adequate coverage. So if you like, if you e-mail me, I will give you a list of all the books I have used as research.
