Irresponsible 'Education'

What a fabulous idea. Sell your citizenship on eBay. Only trouble is, where would they go? Which country would welcome somebody who had demonstrated that kind of judgment? I'd expect them to be as big a problem to me as they were to the US. Not to mention, you'd have a disproportionate number of the shiftless and addicts who just want the money for a short-term buzz. Maybe a more workable idea would be for all the shiftless and addicts to move to California and all the productive people to move to Texas. Oh wait, that's already happening, isn't it?

GOP's Big Idea: Let's Not Have a Wave Election

Yes, I do wonder how anyone can rail at what Democrats do and not vote to keep them out of office. .

Democrats certainly choose their donors over the voters (Keystone Pipeline, school choice). Why is that necessarily a bad choice? You do have to win before you can govern, and they certainly have won with that strategy. Now, governing is another topic . . .

Poverty

Yes, poor people respond to incentives. And, depending on in which state you live, you might need to earn as much as $49,000 (Hawaii) to replace the purchasing power you get from being on welfare. And with the job you actually have to spend maybe 50 hours a week working! Let's see. I could work hard for $30,000 or collect more than that in welfare. Thank God there are many people who would choose the work anyway., But there are getting to be fewer and fewer "chumps" -- as the welfare advocates call them.

C'mon Brent. He got rewarded for lying, not punished. When you were a kid if your Dad gave you more money and praise every time you lied, what would you do?

Two Anti-Choice Parties

People who aspire to tell others what to do seek out government for employment. That applies to both Rs and Ds. The Rs want to impose fewer limits, which makes them the better choice in a two party system. To imply it doesn't matter much is disingenuous.

2 years ago Kerry dined with the Assads. A few months ago Assad was "worse than Hitler". Now we have to build a coalition to save him. With decisive leaders like that, no wonder you're "skeptical".

Cheap Politicians

This is silly. Pay whatever you need to hire the best and brightest people in the world, put them in an environment that is constipated with the rules and regulations of government, and they would look just as inept as the people who run government today.

Sorry, Dr. Sowell, politicians don't turn crooked because they aren't paid adequately. They go in to politics because they're crooked. Willie Sutton robbed banks because that's where the money is. The more power the government has to dispense favors and control the economy, the more crooks it will attract.
The ultimate delusion: It's all about Him. That he would "slow the rise of the oceans, heal the planet and restore our image as the last, best hope on Earth." The One we have been waiting for. Amen.
