Well, that pretty much settles it. My fellow Americans, I have heard and understood the loud and unequivocal message you sent with this year's election: Liberty is for losers. True, we have not been a free people in some time. It's been a long and bumpy road to serfdom - 100 years to be precise, starting in 1913, when government gathered for itself the power to levy a tax on income in direct opposition with the taxation power as the Founders envisioned it. The Founders, after all, understood a thing to two about the dangers of taxation, how necessary expenditures for the public good can all-too-easily become inevitable and bottomless troughs engorging an ever-expanding and ever-ravenous bureaucracy.

Washington. -- The bumper sticker on my neighbor's car has silently taunted me for the past two years: ''Bush Lost, Get Over It.''Now Democrats are beginning to feel the exasperation that goes with losing -- and they are venting their frustration through a sympathetic media. Much of their exasperation is directed at one man, the incoming Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich of Georgia.The temptation for Republicans, especially those in the House who have wandered in the political wilderness for 40 years, will be to intensify their hatred and distrust of the media, which have rarely given them or their arguments respect.

WASHINGTON - The battle lines are drawn in the war of ideas as Iraqi citizens vote today in their first free national election. When he took the oath of office for the second time Jan. 20, President Bush used the moment to make an unapologetic tribute to freedom and to reaffirm the principles that undergird Western liberalism: liberty, the individual and self-government. The policy of the United States, the president proclaimed in his inaugural address, is to support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture.

ON JULY 24, 1863, three weeks after the Battle of Gettysburg, Union officers freed the inmates of a slave trader's jail on Pratt Street near the Baltimore harbor. They found a grisly scene."In this place I found 26 men, 1 boy, 29 women and 3 infants," Col. William Birney of the U.S. Colored Troops wrote to his commanding officer. "Sixteen of the men were shackled and one had his legs chained together by ingeniously contrived locks connected by chains suspended to his waist."The slaves were confined in sweltering cells or in the bricked-in yard of "Cam- liu's slave-pen," where "no tree or shrub grows" and "the mid-day sun pours down its scorching rays," Birney wrote.

Yes, employees are getting more and more brazen in their efforts to falsify employers' drug tests. But, employers are on to them and their efforts usually fail. This according to Amitava Dasgupta, professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of Texas-Houston Medical School. After studying this topic for the past few years, he recently presented his findings to members of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry at its annual meeting in Washington. "I became interested in the ways people cheat when our hospital started drug testing," says Dasgupta.

In his thoughtful commentary "Think nationally, act locally" (Nov. 9), Howard County Health Officer Dr. Peter Beilenson urges people to do all they can at the local level to advance important societal goals. I believe, however, that Dr. Beilenson was too quick to declare Washington a "lost cause. " Under the leadership of President Obama, the federal government has made great strides in recent years to advance important public health goals, including the 2009 law authorizing the FDA to regulate tobacco, which will save many lives, and the landmark Affordable Care Act, which will expand health care to tens of millions of uninsured Americans.
