10 Years Of Right Wing News: The Best Columns From The Last Decade
I started Right Wing News back in January of 2001 and as of the first of this year, I’ve been running the page for 10 long years.

Why Does God Allow Bad Things To Happen To Good People? (May 14, 2009) My favorite thing I’ve ever written about religion.
The Hawkins Strategy: Repealing Obamacare By Cutting Off The Funds (Mar 23, 2010): The column that got the ball rolling on the idea of cutting off the funds for Obamacare.
