Thomas: The tragic results of the wrong kind of 'values’

The only real hope for any of us lies not in a political philosophy. However, good government is a significant part of the fiber of any great nation. Thomas Jefferson said, "The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the only legitimate object of good government."

Thomas: Tucson shooter a product of progressive values

"But do remember," said the demon master Screwtape to his protégé Wormwood, "the only thing that matters is the extent to which you separate the man from the Enemy (God). It does not matter how small the sins are, provided that their cumulative effect is to edge the man away from the Light and out into the Nothing. Murder is no better than cards if cards can do the trick."

Thomas: The true path to peace in troubled times

Job, in the middle of being rebuked by his "friends," declared, "Man born of woman is of few days and full of trouble." In other words, from Job's point of view, life is rather short and sour.

Thomas: A true lesson in perfection, forgiveness

If you pay attention to the sports world at all, you are well aware of the recent "tragedy" that occurred in Major League Baseball.

The science of 'couponing'

In the current economic climate, most people are looking for ways to stretch their dollars. About a year ago, through a friend at our church, my wife Michelle (who contributed greatly to this column) discovered what is commonly referred to as "couponing." Through Michelle's efforts, we have accomplished almost unbelievable things in our personal budget.

Thomas: Why not pay-as-you-go state budgets?

In these tough economic times, much has been reported on the difficulties that local, state, and federal governments have had setting their budgets. Even with layoffs, furloughs, pay-cuts, tax increases and so on, politicians at all levels are still facing some very difficult budget decisions.

Thomas: Global warming as religion draws unlikely foes

Anthropogenic (man-made) global warming skeptics have an unusual ally from the land Down Under. Recently, by a vote of 42 to 30, the Australian Senate rejected their version of cap-and-trade.

Thomas: Feds should heed lessons of failed automakers

Forget Obamacare. Forget stimulus plans, government bailouts, cap-and-tax or any other recent or imminent spending legislation. The current level of government involvement in pensions (Social Security) and health care (Medicare, Medicaid) alone could soon bankrupt this country. General Motors and Chrysler provide the lesson here.

Thomas: Less government, not more, best for health fix

"Why be afraid of government?" a Princeton professor writing for CNN recently asked. Touting the need for Obama's health care plan, the disappointed professor added that, "Democrats are still scared about defending the value of government."

Thomas: Nation’s founders understood man’s flawed nature

I have found common ground for liberals and conservatives. In general, most liberals have a significant distrust of corporate America, as well as a somewhat healthy distrust of capitalism.

Thomas: Is America a Christian nation?

Given that we are on the doorstep of Independence Day, I thought this the appropriate time again to deal with the true heritage of this great nation. This is especially true in light of President Barack Obama again declaring that America is not a Christian nation.

Thomas: What if Sotomayor is pro-life after all?

Oh, the irony. What if, after all the "empathetic" editorializing by liberals in Washington and the media, Sonia Sotomayor turns out to be on the "right" side of the abortion issue?

Thomas: Politics drive views on diversity

The retirement of Supreme Court Justice David Souter, and the appointment by President Barack Obama of Judge Sonia Sotomayor as Souter's replacement, again brings to the forefront one of the most powerful roles that a U.S. president plays.
