I disagree with Stossel on the issue of unpaid interns. Those organizations that utilize unpaid interns always seem to be those organizations that are populated by leftists; the media and journalism. Other businesses do not seem to get that benefit. CBS, the New York Times and the local center for the arts can engage a college student over the summer to answer their phones, run papers between offices and pick up lunch at a local restaurant for the noon staff meeting but let that local restaurateur hire a kid for no wages and teach him how to cook and the gov-t will be on him in short time..
The Holy Spirit is the "Comforter". Muhammad never comforted anyone.
It is hard to have much sympathy for recent investors in Cuba who have had their property stolen. They must have been aware that the Cuban government had stolen the property of earlier investors. If a publically traded company invests in Cuba and has its property expropriated without compensation, the investor/owners of that company could sue management for failing to take that into account.
Perhaps we should give these guys a break. They are young and many of them will grow out of their liberal leanings. Heck, my first vote was for LBJ and I grew out of it. At that time, Kentucky was one of only 2 states that allowed 18 year olds to vote. It was Ted Kennedy that authored a law telling states that if they lowered their voting age, the feds would give them money.

H13, soliton is correct. The tomb of St. Peter was discovered several years ago. If you choose not to believe it, that's your prerogative. It doesn't negate history.

Nice thought. I hope that your right. She hasn't actually said that she is running. It might even be that she fears adding a loss in the general election to her defeat in the primary.
Priebus must remember that the purpose of the primaries is for the Republicans to pick their nominee. So no Democrat moderators should be used. When he is negotiating with the Democrats for the presidential debates, he should insist on a Limbaugh, Hewitt or O'Rilley for every Candy Crowley of George Stephanopolis (sp?).

Nor from Pope Francis - that was a mis-translation.

The application in this encyclical to the US would be towards those capitalists who profit from abortion an porn and those who accumulate great wealth but give nothing back.

Evangelii Gaudium was written in Spanish by an Argentinean. The phrase “trickle down” is NOT in the Spanish version. That came from a translation by a writer for the English left wing paper, The Guardian, I believe. Remember that Pope Francis is an Argentinean. There economic system is not free market but more like crony capitalism. It is more fascist than free market. I read an interesting article at a Catholic web site a few days ago that went into greater detail on Evangelii Gaudium. I neglected to book mark it and haven’t been able to find it. It might be at http://www.crisismagazine.com/

Anytime that you read something that a pope said in a secular, particularly left leaning, publication; you should find a Catholic site and find out what he really said.
