Peace Protests, R.I.P.

The principle loyalty of most peace activists is not toward peace, but toward the Democratic Party. Republican wars are bad, but Democratic wars are OK.

Stupid Is As Krugman Does

I went to Yale around the same time that Krugman did. I have no recollection of ever meeting Krugman, but I will say this. They had a very bad crop of people at Yale back then, all the way from the President down to the freshman undergraduates, and most everybody in between. I never met so many bad people in one place as I did at Yale. Not everybody was bad, but you have to be careful with regard to anyone who was at Yale around that time. Watch your step!
America's poor people are not getting much of an education out of the schools that they are attending. It doesn't take a rocket science to figure out what the problem is. The schools that they are attending are run by government. Private initiative is nearly always superior to government, so get government out of education entirely and leave it to private initiative. Then these people will start getting an education for a change.
A conservative triumph might not be such a great thing. Conservatives talk about cutting back government, but many of them make an exception with regard to wars and the military. When in power they postpone their plans to cut government in order to Stop Aggression and defeat the latest enemy. People assume that they will get around to cutting government once the latest enemy is defeated, but they never seem to run out of enemies.

Why Obama's Majority Can't Govern

There is another factor that makes it impossible for the progressives to govern. The progressive movement is all about spending money and increasing government. Unfortunately, all that takes money, and Washington has run out of it.
Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky won WWI. Stalin won WWII.
I believe that the latest ISIS atrocities may have been deliberately designed to goad the United States into going to war once again in the Near East. Their goal: get Washington to exhaust itself and go bankrupt. Rand Paul is the only important politician smart enough to see that right now. Let's hope America listens to him rather than to the hawks.
One good approach to the problem of illegal aliens in public schools is simply to abolish public schools. Government does a poor job of whatever it does, and education is no exception. It's no great disservice to illegal alien children to do without public education, because nobody learns anything in public schools anyway.

Still Kicking Around Nixon

Christopher142 Wrote: Aug 06, 2014 9:51 AM
Liberals have always had a pathological preoccupation with Nixon. Why? It's just a guess, but I think it might have something to do with the fact that, for whatever reason, Nixon tended to surround himself with people of German extraction: Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Kissinger. Maybe some people are still fighting WWII.

Is Thinking Obsolete?

Thinking IS obsolete. The way to truth is to simply follow the Democratic Party, which is the voice of God on earth. America was a hell on earth until the Democratic Party came along, but everything the Democratic Party does is to the good. The Democratic Party cares about the Little People. No need to check your facts and no need for logical thinking.
