Ambrose: Iran deal shows need for firm foreign policy

By Jay Ambrose July 26, 2015 6 a.m.

Ambrose: Perry's words on race backed by his actions

By Jay Ambrose July 19, 2015 6 a.m.

Check out what Rick Perry recently said about better serving needy African-Americans and you'll find something inspiriting — a persuasive analysis of what works and a signal of Republican concern.

Ambrose: Will robots eventually put us all out of work?

By Jay Ambrose May 31, 2015 6 a.m.

Imagine one day you're poking along down the highway, a gargantuan vehicle behind you honks, galumphs past you in another lane and unsettles you by its size and proximity to the point of road rage — except for one thing.

Ambrose: Clinton's weak foundation

By Jay Ambrose May 3, 2015 6 a.m.

While some defenders say ho hum, Hillary Clinton's failure as secretary of state to follow through on a pledge aimed at reducing the possibility of conflict of interest was either inexcusably negligent or deceptive.

Ambrose: Political pugilist Reid hit below belt

By Jay Ambrose April 5, 2015 6 a.m.

Progressives like to blame House Republicans for Washington stalemate, but those Republicans lag behind Harry Reid, the former Senate majority leader. Thanks not insignificantly to his own doings, he is now the minority leader, though he is retiring at the end of 2016. Reid won't be missed except by those who think any abuse of office and American preciousness is acceptable if it furthers their druthers.

Ambrose: Obama's dangerous deal

By Jay Ambrose March 29, 2015 6 a.m.

Iran's supreme leader recently said "Death to America," and meanwhile his country is gaining power in Iraq, Yemen and Syria; sponsoring terrorists; working on a ballistic missile program; and making it clear that Israel is a goner if Iran is ever in a position to make that happen.

Ambrose: Uber's innovation bodes well for future

By Jay Ambrose March 22, 2015 6 a.m.

'Uber" is a German word generally used in English to mean "super," and I am here to argue that nothing is more uber for building an economy than innovative entrepreneurship — and that few entrepreneurial companies these days are more uber than Uber. It's a taxi company that is not really a taxi company.

Ambrose: Obama's disturbing legacy

By Jay Ambrose March 8, 2015 6 a.m.

As the last two years of his tenure move toward their conclusion, President Barack Obama's increasingly probable legacy — on top of the much-discussed debt he will leave to punish future generations — could be a nuclear-armed Iran and a striking diminution of rule of law and American freedoms.

2014: year of overreaction

By Jay Ambrose January 4, 2015 6 a.m.

So, 2014 is done for. It was a year that happily ended with a pickup in the economy and other blessings but also had its excruciating moments and sometimes something making those moments and others in the further past worse: inappropriate or overreaching reactions.

Ambrose: Art employed in quest for climate change fix

By Jay Ambrose December 7, 2014 6 a.m.

When Todd Siler was 12 years old, he asked what the point of the universe was. To help find out, he later became the only one ever to get an art-and-psychology Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has since painted up a storm, thought up a storm, and is now collaborating with a scientist to give us a new boundless energy supply that could end global warming fears.
