Commentary: Someone told a funny

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – No one milks a bad joke quite like Indiana Rep. Jim Lucas. The Seymour Republican with a love for guns that knows no bounds trotted out a stunt a few days ago. While he was appearing on “No Limits” – the radio show I host – he pointed to […]

Commentary: Me too: Simple words that reveal deep pain

By Janet Williams TheStatehouseFile.com If you spend any time at on Facebook you might have seen some of your friends and family post two simple words, “me too.” Given the events of the past week I didn’t need to read the explanation – that people, women mostly, are typing those seemingly innocuous words to show […]

Commentary: Donald Trump’s casual destructiveness

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – If there were a symbol for President Donald Trump’s administration, it would be a wrecking ball. An out-of-control wrecking ball. In just the past few days, the president blithely has thrown the healthcare market – about one-fifth of America’s economy – into chaos. By signing an executive order ending […]

Commentary: Weinstein, Trump and selective outrage

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Wrong is wrong. Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s abominable conduct with women has – justly – unleashed an outpouring of condemnation.

Commentary: Guns and the conversation we just can’t have

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – I hate writing about guns. No other issue in American life divides people so much. No other debate pushes us so far into our bunkers. I’m on the air, talking with outspoken gun advocate Indiana Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, Indiana University Law School Prof. Jody Madeira and Marian University […]

Commentary: Hypocrisy knows no boundaries

By Janet Williams TheStatehouseFile.com  It’s hard to imagine two people more different in politics and temperament than Tim Murphy and Harvey Weinstein. Murphy, the Republican congressman from Western Pennsylvania, carved himself a niche as a conservative anti-abortion Christian. As a member of the pro-life coalition in Congress he has voted consistently to limit access to […]

Commentary: My opinion regarding opiods

By Abdul Hakim-Shabazz IndyPoltics.Org A few years ago, my wife was involved in a major car accident. She was prescribed opioids to help her deal with the pain.

Commentary: Behind the gates

Commentary: Behind the gates

By John Guy Special to TheStatehouseFile.com Howard died behind the gates— because of fear, the mindless apprehension causing Indianapolis neighborhoods to retain private security firms and developers to build million-dollar gate houses. Howard’s story is 80 percent true, 20 percent exaggeration. He lived in a south Florida high rise, near the top, the 18th floor. […]

Commentary: Pence leaves game — and dignity — behind

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – Vice President Mike Pence’s expensive and unseemly departure from the Indianapolis Colts game demonstrates there is only one job for which he will be qualified when he leaves the White House. Ventriloquist’s dummy. Pence’s leave-taking was a shabby performance. It was a stunt, a prefabricated show of outrage that, […]

Commentary: If only it weren’t real

By John Krull TheStatehouseFile.com  INDIANAPOLIS – A lot has happened on the soap opera, “As the Nation Disintegrates,” since we last tuned in. Just for starters, the U.S. secretary of state apparently has called the president of the United States a “moron” in a Cabinet meeting. This came not long after the president said the […]
