Tesla Motors, which recently wrangled more than $1 billion in tax breaks from Nevada, proved itself unusually adept at obtaining government support for its private enterprise.

It’s ironic that the uproar over Ray Rice’s brutal beating of his now-wife and the NFL’s shamefully lenient response is occurring exactly 20 years after Congress enacted the Violence Against Women Act. The legislation was designed in part to bring public recognition and more government resources to the problem of domestic violence.

Middle East: defending lines in the sand
The rise of the Islamic State in the Middle East is, to be certain, shocking to Western sensibilities and seems so sudden that it requires an equally swift and shocking response. In Washington, Congress has clamored for and President Barack Obama seems to be promising just that.

An enduring irony of Pennsylvania’s alcohol control regime is its consistent failure to yield the public-safety benefits claimed by its defenders. Despite restrictions on the buying and selling of alcoholic beverages that are unmatched in 48 other states, the state’s record of preventing the most dangerous by-product of drinking — drunken driving — is unremarkable at best.

Obama’s uncertain trumpet, again
WASHINGTON — In his Islamic State speech, President Obama said many of the right things. Most importantly, he finally got the mission right: degrade and destroy the enemy.

Easing of Penn State sanctions is one step
The halftime report on Penn State’s performance under the NCAA’s Sandusky sanctions is encouraging — not so much for restoring football scholarships and postseason bowl opportunities as for acknowledging what the university has done to address the cultural and administrative lapses that enabled the child-abuse scandal in the first place.

Congress must also confront Islamic State
For most of the summer, Republicans had it easy when it came to the Islamic State. All they had to do was complain that President Barack Obama wasn’t tough enough, accuse him of lacking strategic vision and demand that he do more.

Immigration delay does not a hero make
President Barack Obama wanted to try out another experiment in unilateral government, was persuaded it would hurt Democrats in the coming election, and backed up. The trick he had in mind — finding ways to make some illegal immigrants legal without the approval of Congress — now won’t happen until after November.

Real immigration reform has been a mirage too long
It seems there’s always a perfectly good reason not to fix our broken immigration system. Another election that may be swung if voters are motivated by whatever action is taken, a party majority that might be won or lost.

Let’s admit to the real issue in Ray Rice brutality video
These days it just isn’t real until we can see it online. Now that video of Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice savagely punching his then-fiancee, now his wife, in an elevator earlier this year has surfaced online, he has been let go by his team and suspended indefinitely by the National Football League.
