Also Sowell neglects to mention a most successful Republican, President Harding, who single handedly led the nation out a severe economic contraction in 1921, and set the stage for the Roaring Twenties. Harding once serve as a Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, but never as Governor. President Coolige was Governor of Massachusetts for only two years 1919-20. But his example is sorely missing from today's politicians. He called out the National Guard to suppress and break a strike of a police in Boston-with the assertion that "there is no right to strike against the public safety by anybody, anytime, anywhere."

Sowell should have mentioned that if Senator Warren challenges Secretary Clinton for the Democratic nomination it would be the ugliest primary fight in the history of the Republic.
The last honest person associated with Harvard was Fighting Joe Story, and he died in 1846. It's been a long time Harvard.

Oil at $60 a barrel makes the DPRK more dangerous. It may be able to replenish its strategic oil supply and have a few more military parades etc.

Last week Sowell all but accused Mayor de Blasio of having "some residual decency." Now I suppose it's possible for a democrat to have decency, but decency is a stranger to Mayor de Blasio. The Mayor trivialized the murder of two NYPD officers, by making it all about him. There's nothing new about this. That's the kind of people democrats are. Sowell should apologize for his remarks because democrats have no residual decency.
Just keep parading your ignorance. it's hilarious.

It looks like the 2016 democratic presidential primaries will be the ugliest in the nation's history.
President Lee was a very successful President of the ROK, but he did not respond immediately to provocations from the DPRK. The ROK's current President, Park Geun-hye didn't let that happen to her. In the Winter-Spring of 2013 the DPRK gave provocation after provocation, President Park changed the rules of engagement and the order of battle. No longer would the ROK military wait around for orders when DPRK stirred up trouble. The ROK military now responds immediately and in force to any DPRK incursion or provocation. Perhaps there have been about 20 of these events since April 2013. In every case the ROK military responded immediately and in force, and the DPRK has left the field. You make good points about the regime of the DPRK. It has a gigantic army, but it cannot use it. It has weapons but it cannot use them. Beijing treats the DPRK like a potted plant while the ROK gets a free trade agreement and regular state visits. Relations between the ROK and the PRC have never been closer. The reduction in oil prices also makes the DPRK more dangerous. In 2013 and 2014 the government had to cancel large scale parades because it did not have the fuel on hand.
The First Amendment applies to government restricting the right of free speech, for "Congress shall make no law....prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech." Congress has passed no law. Private entities made the decision (which is both reasonable and rational) not to exhibit a movie. I respect the decision of these private entities, and indeed respect the right of all private business to make their own decisions. For this you brand brand me a communist. You should probably learn the difference between laissez-faire and communism.
