This day in 1933, America had the good sense to decriminalize booze. The 21st amendment to the Constitution was ratified, nullifying the 18th amendment.

Three weeks after his inauguration, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act, legalizing the sale of beer and wine with the alcohol content of 3.2%. The “3.2%...

Florida representative Alan Grayson has a reputation for being a little “out there.”

When he’s not making bizarre claims about GOP health care plans, calling female lobbyists “K Street whores,” or running blatantly false and manipulated ads, Grayson apparently likes to muse about against whom he can take legal action.

Cornell University isn’t paranoid, James O’Keefe really is out to get it.

When Cornell Media Relations overreacted to Jesse Watters asking students questions on campus, I wrote that it made no sense on the surface, but might reflect paranoia about James O’Keefe, who previously did a sting video at Cornell:

The Obama administration thinks it outsmarted opponents of the Iran deal by running to the U.N. Security Council for international approval before Congress’s review period even started.

It was a typical Obama F-U to his domestic opponents.

Since Congress now needs a super-majority to block the deal, the outcome is uncertain. The Obama...

There’s a simple explanation for why civil asset forfeiture laws are coming under fire—they ruin lives.

Not in the way a hefty speeding ticket or 7 am-on-the-dot tow “ruins lives,” but in a real, “my life savings are gone and I don’t know how I’m going to pay for my next...

This day in 1919 was irrefutably one of the darkest days in American history — the day the 18th amendment to the Constitution was ratified, making Prohibition the law of the land.
