I cannot tell you how happy I am that my great-grandparents emigrated from Sweden in the 19th century. You do know that people who live where half the year the sun doesn't come up and half the year the sun doesn't set cannot be sane. Sleep deprivation does contribute to mental distress and is a form of torture. Explains everything....she says smiling.
I always find important words written by Dennis Prager and enjoy listening. Couple of thoughts on this phenomenon, or some additional problems: 1. Many parents today (since the 60s) are radically liberal, socialist, basically the hippie anti-establishment....my generation. These parents are very proud of their robot-like children who have happily accepted parental permissiveness (er, liberalism) 2, Many conservative parents are adopting the values of their children in misguided hope of winning/keeping the love of their children...so the conservative parents betray their values along with their children 3. IF ONLY, "The purpose of a college education is to question your father's values," he told the graduating seniors of Dartmouth College." Were this true, then given points 1 and 2 above, we would in fact see children going to university in order to question the liberal values of their parents. Not happening...universities no longer really support educating one's mind by critical thought. 4. Take heart Conservative parents, your children may flirt with liberalism in their early 20s only to meet hard economic realities and return to your wisdom -- as long as there is still a parent with open arms....... Prodigal sons.
I love Allen West. "The priorities of this administration are totally whacked.” I'm sure that Allen West only says these things because he is the president of the "White Male Club". I think he is.
This store will be a winner in today's economy: Booze, Cigarettes and Guns r Us Will they accept EBT cards?
Precisely. Christie is a lot like the 'Republican' Governor Chafee in RI. Useless, pseudo Republican in a heavily Democratic state. Chafee recently made it official - changed his (R) to (D). Doesn't matter, he has left politics. But not before thoroughly trashing RI into a third world country. If you think NJ is bad; visit RI. Both brought to you by Republicans............or what passes for a Republican in a corrupt, Democratic State.

Chris Christie’s Last Election

The only interesting news to come out of New Jersey will be the day Chris Christie changes his party affiliation officially to (D). No, I take that back, only if it occurs on a slow news day. Perhaps he has made a deal to accept the VP slot on Hillary's ticket?
good post A Conservative votes for his children and his Liberal neighbor's children. For certainly the Liberal is not voting for them.

Brown Shirts at Brown U?

Brown University hasn't been a decent institution of higher learning for about 30 years. Three respected members of my family graduated from Brown when it was a respected institution. Today, Brown is a boutique college for the wealthy elite to send their lesser offspring. Kind of like the Kennedys who sent Patrick Kennedy to be appointed (er elected) to RI because he was too embarrassing to pawn off on Boston elites. Sad, but very true. Brown is just another New England college highly overpriced and under endowed with talent. I think that the only subject at such places is PC fascism. Don't even bother writing stories to give these students any media attention. And please don't show us pictures of them nude. I've seen them around the East Side often enough with clothing...it's better that way. There are still some universities outside of New England where real subjects of value are taught - engineering schools for example. Even my brother and sister-in-law who graduated from Brown in the before time, are sending their intelligent, talented, qualified children to actual places of higher learning like Rochester Institute of Technology. Ignore these boutique colleges for the daycare centers they have become.
I'm grateful that there is still a discussion about abortion. It may help to keep the activity reality based. There is a stigma on abortion because anyone who really gives thought to the act would conclude that it is barbaric. It is also important to include early term abortions...many many of us who had abortions early without the graphic elements are nonetheless still tormented by the barbarism of the soul - the soul taken and the soul left behind. Abortion will NEVER be prohibited by law now that it has been legalized. Sad, true and a good lesson on legalizing activities without very careful consideration. However, we can tell our stories of the barbarity, evil if we choose...people are not mandated to listen. Thanks again for the article.

Stupid Is the New Normal

Stupid is the new normal.............best title today! I'm hoping Katie will continue investigation of the Obamacare Navigators (in the manner of Breitbart/Acorn). While Acorn was defunded, only the name was changed to protect the guilty. Acorn became Obama For America (OFA) and is now Organizing For Action (OFA). Same goals, same people, same funding....because taxpayers are paying these Navigators. Signing people up for health insurance is not the most important goal for this organization. Signing up voters is, was and will always be the main objective for this democratic organization.
Always enjoy Katie's writing. Here's the sad situation (I fear): " (41%) say they will have no impact. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. " So, if my math is correct, this means that 53% of likely voters are not prepared today to care one way or the other about Benghazi tragedy when they cast their votes for Her. The campaign for Hillary will boil down to this: Isn't it time we vote for a candidate with two x chromosomes? Won't you vote for HER? I've already seen the ads and it is very clear that Hillary expects to win your vote by the content of her x chromosomes alone. This is just exactly the kind of campaign designed to appeal to the very very very low information voter. And by this latest poll it would seem that there are about 53% of likely low information voters out there.
