When College Isn't Worth It

Do college graduates earn more money because of their degree or because of the character traits and greater intelligence on average that enable them to obtain their degrees? Is it not possible or even likely that these same people would earn more money even if they did not have a degree?

The impeachment question is incredibly easy to answer. Republicans should simply reply that of course Obama should be impeached, but since the Democrats are completely lacking in integrity and they control the senate, it would be an exercise in futility. Also, the Republicans should never miss an opportunity to explain that the democrats are the party of the end justifies the means and that anyone who doesn't agree with that is out of their mind to ever vote for a democrat.
You wrote that President Obama's policies have been ineffective. Unfortunately, that is not true. They have been extremely effective. It's just that the effects have all been negative instead of positive.

What if the corporate income tax were just replaced with a national sales tax?

You are of course correct about our duties, however I cringe at the thought of duty becoming a part of our political debates. The left will want government to define our duties for us and make them mandatory. When that happens, we will be living in a total police state.
People are stuck on the notion that transparency in who donates how much is the solution. The solution is the opposite. Develop a system where donations to politicians can and must be made anonymously and any donation that is made known to the politician is automatically considered a bribe and the politician who accepts the donation is automatically forever and always barred from government employment.
Best column I've read in years.

You have finally gotten around to asking the same question I have been asking for 5 years now, "Is Obama a moron, or is he a monster?"
The quest for transparency regarding political contributions is a fool's errand. The right approach is anonymity. The only real reason a contributor needs for a candidate to know of his contribution is that he expects some consideration from the candidate, making the contribution a bribe.

You wrote, "The inescapable truth is he jealously guards against the disciplining of anyone in his administration, because it could reflect badly on him." I think it is more likely that he is afraid that the object of his discipline might turn into a disgruntled squealer.

The solution to the problem of insufficiently integrated schools is so simple I'm surprised our progressive friends haven't already thought of it. Just force enough white/asian and black/hispanic parents to swap children until the desired racial balance is achieved. There- problem solved!
