In the current bid for the presidency, several key domestic issues are, seemingly, being spread before us at our nation’s dinner table. There are the samplers to whet the appetite – abortion politics, same-sex marriage battles, the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, and social security reform, to name a few.

The phrases “grades count,” “you need money; get a job,” and “student loans” have become like background music to my life.

Kim Jong Il may not be playing with a full deck, but his conception of the country’s national interest is well served by his defiance of “international opinion.”
