Freedom of speech should not be subjected to the discretion of any one, any time we introduce an element of partiality, we will invariably trip and accept bias of the left or the right. One such slip happened by my conservative friend Sean Hannity on September 30, 2014 on his Fox News show with Pamela Geller and me as the guests. It was disappointing when he was advocating banning the speech of the Tunisian Scholar Sheikh Rachid Al-Ghannouchi from speaking at Yale Law School, because he had spoken against America.

Fourteen million Americans would lose coverage next year under House Republican legislation remaking the nation's health care system, and that figure would grow to 24 million by 2026, Congress' nonpartisan budget analysts projected Monday. The figures dealt a blow to a GOP drive already under fire from both parties and large segments of the medical industry.The report by the Congressional Budget Office flies in the face of President Donald Trump's aim of "insurance for everybody," and he has been assailing the credibility of the CBO in advance of the release. Administration officials quickly took strong issue with it.It also... [Read More]

Not knives, as in an entire set, but one specific knife that they reach for over and over that can do just about everything they need. Maybe it's a chef's knife, or maybe it's the increasingly popular Santoku knife, the Japanese chef's knife that's usually shorter and often features granton edges, or indentations on the blade that prevent food from sticking to the knife as it cuts.
