The ties that bind

President Obama's softer words on Wednesday don't represent retreat or compromise. Rather, they serve as a reminder that what unites Israel and the U.S. is stronger that what may occasionally divide the two nations.

'Be prepared to give everything'

"You will exceed your highest goals if you love your work and your field. Figure out what your special traits are and what it is that you enjoy, and be prepared to give everything."

He who cast the first stone

The Wall Street financial crisis has brought the economy to its knees and now the corporate sector has the audacity to blame government for the catastrophe?

Bad refereeing

For big business to now claim that the government is "anti-business" is like the umpire complaining about how badly his game was refereed.

All about the benjamins

We are living in a period of great uncertainty. When business leaders feel that there is a good chance of a solid economic recovery, they will invest. We have been in business cycles before. This is not the 'end of the world'.
