You are suggesting that because they could use the money it is okay to basically ask for money. I am with Mr. Jacoby on this one. And as an aside if you are paying for the wedding you buy what you can afford. If you have to cut the list then you cut the list.
I have often wondered that myself

gsteele's comment does not suggest that it is the victim's fault.
"Suppose the Senate had passed a bill that would cut Texas out of the Union? " That would be perfect. Conservatives could move there, progressives would move out-that is to say Austin-.And both groups could have their own country. Sounds like a great idea, Thanks Ann.
Amen. Great reminder. And true for all Christians. Also our source of hope. This is not our home. One day we will be with him forever.

I would not put it exactly as Big O7 did but there is much in there I agree with. I also note that back in the late 70s I worked for CETA YETP (Youth Employment Training Program) in rural downstate IL. My role was to "develop jobs". So I walked around to farmers and asked if they might hire kids during the summer. It was common for them to say yeah they would love to but they could not afford to pay the minimum wage, which at the time was $3.35. If they could pay $2.00 they would find some things that would be handy to have done but weren't urgent. The minimum wage was too high for them pay for work they otherwise might have. A clear example of the minimum wage taking away jobs. My experience of their heart in wanting to give the kids work but feeling unable to do so was the beginning of me moving from a leftist to a conservative. By the way they did hire kids, and adults, for other jobs that paid above the minimum wage such as walking beans and de-tasseling corn. Much harder jobs that most teens can't do.
I just posted a comment and then read Dr. Sowell's second installment on Cruz Control. This shows why he is a pundit and I am not. I quote, "The Republican establishment has more than a tactical deficiency, however. They seem to have no principle that they offer or follow with any consistency. Their lack of articulation may be just a reflection of that lack of principle. It is hard to get to the point when you have no point to get to."
This is your second article criticizing people for not uniting against leftists. But if you look at the comments there are many if not most that point out that Republicans have no credibility that they will do anything positive. As a republican why don't you tell us what the plan would be? How would having both houses move liberty forward? As thoroughly noted here most republicans are neither libertarians nor conservatives of another stripe. They seem to believe in the slower growth of big government. You criticize disunity but why should people unite behind a party opposed to their beliefs? I am not optimistic about our countries future and don't see the answers-but although you are preaching sincerely- I only here you saying "Don't let them win".
Thank you for this great introduction to a man I hope to learn more about.
