AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM:: America the Generous – WSJ

After the Britain-based Charities Aid Foundation released a survey this week that ranked the U.S. first in giving, I contacted Adam Meyerson of the Philanthropy Roundtable for a reaction. Given the economic hardships of so many Americans in recent years, was he surprised by the results? "Not at all," said Mr. Meyerson. "This study is consistent with many other studies ...

BARONE:: CONSERVATIVES need to heed Constitution’s limits | WashEx

GENERAL WASHINGTON’S Christmas Hail Mary – WashTimes

Long before there was Tim Tebow, there was George Washington. It is well documented that the act of Te-bowing (i.e., kneeling in prayer) was done by our nation’s first president. Painter Arnold Friberg’s “Prayer at Valley Forge” immortalized Gen. Washington in the snow-covered woods, bent down on one knee and praying for God’s assistance. In the grim days of ...
