Mark W. Hendrickson, in "Yo-Yo Economics?" explains how Obama's view of a "we'll always take care of you" economy will lead to misery; in "The GOP: A Party in Flux," he shows how the Tea Party has been dominant in the primaries, but GOP establishment remains formidable in Washington; in "Reflections on the French Election," he says the newly elected, socialist President's economic platform cannot work, and sadly, people believe in fairy tales; in "The Tax Rate Scandal," he reveals how capital benefits wage earners, and how both parties are unwilling to face the dire consequences of out-of-control spending - the real scandal; in Economics: The Cheerful Science," he shows how economics points the way to prosperity, if only we can get politicians out of the way.

Herbert London, in "When Choice Justifies Murder," considers the implications of a new proposal "after birth abortion"; in "The New Defense Posture for America," he considers the implications of Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's testimony before Congress: Congress' war powers authority is irrelevant the U.S. needs the approval of the UN to go to war; in "The Chinese Strategic Vision," he considers the implications of massive Chinese investment in Latin America and Africa; in "From Religious Fragmentation to National Unity," he writes that people who want to take God out the Pledge of Allegiance "eviscerate" our national heritage.

In "On Hope and Hate: Week One of Obama vs. Romney," Paul Kengor cites polls showing that team Obama's first use of class warfare backfired; in "Obama, the Russians, and Missile Defense: Historical Parallels," he shows how Obama's eagerness to abandon missile defense and mollify Vladimir Putin harkens to past betrayals; in "On Ozzie Guillen, Fidel Castro, and Baseball in Cuba," he repeats the foolish comments made by the manager of the Florida Marlins, and Fidel Castro's monstrous crimes.

Jigs Gardner, in "Versed in Country Things - Spring and Summer," relates the new chores of spring (plowing and planting), describes neighbors impossible to find anywhere else, and depicts a very odd, left-wing boarder.
