Whenever leftists talk this way, I remind them that Harvard's endowment is too big.
At first I thought, "What the ... ?" Then I looked at the name. Sure enough, it was Loyal Democrat, who loves to mock leftist thinking by pretending to believe it.

I think most atheists are misjudging the current powers of Christianity and Islam in the West. They think Christianity is still an enormous force, and so they think Muslims here would act as a counterweight against it. It's a big mistake.

"Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas." That was spoken by protesters in Egypt around the time of the Benghazi attack. It represents the thinking of people who are closer to what is happening in the Islamic world than Obama or any of his advisers are. Who should I believe? I'm going with the protesters. I'm disappointed this slogan disappeared so quickly from our nation's consciousness. Conservatives need to bring it up as frequently as possible.

"Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas." It's really too bad that this slogan, from some protesters in Egypt, wasn't given more press coverage.

We began investing in stocks in order to get dividends, because bank interest rates were so low. To our surprise, all of our stocks have gone up. We actually didn't want this because we wanted to buy more, but now we can't because they're getting too expensive.

A Meritocracy

There are certain enclaves where it's not a meritocracy. In academia and in certain elite law firms, what typically happens is that those chosen went to the best prep schools (because they were rich) and then to the best eastern elite colleges and universities, after which their illustrious careers were launched. And as someone else has pointed out, so many of our Supreme Court justices or our presidents go to these same elite schools. The left should be screaming about this, but they aren't.

I've just heard of a group of artists called the Stuckists. They seem to be against the fake art that you're talking about. One of their slogans is that if it has to be in a gallery to be art, it isn't art.

I knew plenty of people in high school who seemed to be of average intelligence. Then they got to college and got inspired. Suddenly, they were actually interested in learning and were getting good grades. One went on to get a Ph.D., and others could have done so.

So far, not a single commentator has talked about the main point of the article, which is to learn Spanish so as to get Latinos in this country to vote Republican.
