Stitt wants to raise gambling tax, increase state revenue

The lawsuits over the agreement are unlikely to deter the governor from increasing the tax rate on gambling. While most of us were either really drunk or really asleep on New Year’s Day (I was a member of the latter group), leading members of the Chickasaw, Cherokee and Choctaw nations received a monstrously important transmission […]

Bynum’s defense of “Live PD” filming deserving of criticism

The reality show exploits people’s worst moments and does little to help police accountability. Let’s quickly clear the air: I’ve never seen an episode of “Live PD” and personally see the commoditization of the impoverished individuals that oftentimes make up the “content” for these type of shows as disgusting. I also had no clue that […]

Accumulation of executive branch vacancies bad for stability

The unruliness of this administration leaves it open for more dangerous mistakes. If you were the top level politician in an ostensibly democratic nation, would you prefer a bureaucratic workforce that focuses on security or flexibility? Do you hire the most qualified, patient person or the hotshot that will take the job? Do you create […]

Museum of the Bible involved in smuggling scandal

The evangelical Green family, founders of Hobby Lobby, are reported to have illegally purchased Egyptian papyrus and parchment. When I was a young child, I was enamored with the idea of archeology.

Point Counterpoint: Clinton’s criticism a failed attempt to meddle in the primary

Clinton’s claim that Gabbard is a Russian asset was unfounded and over the line.
