The Candidates' Trade Nonsense

Why is it more expensive to make something here than to make it overseas and ship it across the ocean? Well, for one thing we tax domestic production but not foreign production. We should replace the business income tax (and all related taxes) with a national sales tax. Then people will see how much they are being bled, and overseas producers will face the same costs as domestic producers.
What do you tell your black child? That Obama wasn't worthy of him, wasn't worthy of the job, wasn't worthy of the trust placed in him ... and that the trust was extended because Obama was a Token Black.
There is, ironically, one technology that might allow wind power to work without backup fossil fuel generation, but it's one that the greens killed years ago: pumped storage. Way back when, it was planned as a way to reduce the need for peaking generation and to allow hard-to-adjust nuclear plants to provide more of the power need. Now it would be used for the opposite purpose: to ride out irregularities in power production. Imagine giant concrete tanks offshore near wind farms, capable of maintaining billions of gallons of seawater with heads of 100 feet or more. With multiple tanks, it would even be possible to use tidal effects to good purpose, pumping at high tide and releasing at low tide.
This would probably run afoul of the US Constitution's guarantee that the federal government shall ensure that every State has a republican form of government. Unfortunately, it's not clear that SCOTUS would ever enforce it.

How could it happen, Secretary Clinton? It happened because YOU misjudged the people involved. You and your boss went into this with eyes wide shut and ears stuffed with patchouli-scented candle wax. And if we don't wake up soon, we may be facing a generation-long war WITH NUKES that could kill a third of the world's population. And a lot of them would be right here in the Continental USA.
Our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines take an oath to the country and the Constitution and they back it with their lives. Our politicians take an oath to the Constitution and proceed to treat the First Amendment like some lousy Danegeld to give away. And we never get rid of the Dane. The Danegeld was only money. We are giving away our souls.
The critical error is in the claim that sympathy equals or requires approval and acceptance. We may sympathize with the person who has uncontrollable sexual desires, but that does not mean we may allow or excuse them. As G. K. Chesterton said, "Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line someplace."

Che and the EPA

Displaying an image of Che, Fidel, Stalin, or their ilk in a federal workplace ought to be a firing offense, unless it is clearly for the purpose of analysis or derision. (If it's on a dartboard, there ought to b darts in it, just to be sure.)
The mullahs of Iran spat into that open hand.

Does it really make sense to use the word "genital" when the one thing these women do NOT want to use their bodies for is to procreate ... to produce the next generation?

We also need to shake the Leftist indoctrination out of the elementary school classrooms--and that means shaking it out of the teachers.
