So he won 2 elections? So did Richard Nixon.
Taft, college costs are what they are today because of government meddling such as what is being debated here. And unlike most peoples wages, the market is allowed to drive what the coaches are paid. If colleges thought they could get the same performance for less, they would do so. If a successful football program were not giving the college a good return, they would pay less.
Gee, I find it hard to take comments like this from someone of similar political bent as Bill Maher and Jon Stewart. You know, the champions of sneering and smarminess as a substitute for political debate.....
Last night, I was brainstroming with my son re: a school assignment he has to obtain and review an article about a current political event. I suggested he look up the Christina Kirchner/ dead prosecutor thing. I had to explain what was going on--- he asked "why haven't I heard of this?" I explained that socialists lie, cheat, cover up and even kill in the interest of their own power and to further their agenda. It is, at best, a dog-bites-man story. At worst, the msm seldom messes its own nest....

On federal land, ostensibly, there would be more control on how the land is utilized.....

I think the "despotic" part is already here.
As a physician, I wish people would voluntarily turn their backs on tobacco of all sorts. The health hazards are well documented. So are the health hazards of promiscuity; however any suggestion that the government discourage that sort of behavior is met with absolute howls.....
I think that receiving slights from this administration is prima facie evidence that one is doing their job as journalist.
MM lack of understanding of things in general is astounding. The US military generally uses a sniper to neutralize a specific threat, rather than take potshots at grunts. Without a sniper, neutralizing that threat would entail artillery, mortars, airstrikes, or a direct attack, all of which entail nearly certain collateral damage. On balance, a good sniper saves lives, even those of the opposition.
