Stossel’s solution
By Cal Thomas

IN ORDER TO get the correct answer to anything, one must ask the right question. That is what former “ABC News” and current “Fox News” TV host John Stossel does on his weekly program. If ever there was “must-see TV,” this is it.

Stossel’s show on Saturday, June 30, was a classic. It was called “Government, Incorporated” and focused on what private industry can do less expensively and more efficiently than government. After watching it, I wondered why this isn’t happening.

It is the same characteristic that causes people to believe against staggering odds that they can win the lottery, or score big in Atlantic City or discover a foolproof system for playing the stock market. It is the familiar?get-rich-quick notion that somehow one can bypass hard work, sound financial planning and win The Big One, retiring to a life of ease.

Warming up to Romney

By Cal Thomas

IT WASN’T EXACTLY the belly of the beast Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited recently on a picture-perfect commencement day at “the world’s largest Christian University,” but his appearance was a test as to whether the conservative school, founded by the late Jerry Falwell, would embrace a devout Mormon. And Romney passed.
The more than 30,000 assembled in Liberty University’s stadium to hear his commencement address not only applauded him when he proclaimed that marriage was a relationship between one man and one woman but
