The Palestinians (and everyone else) made a fool of Jean-Francois Kerree because as a committed lib he believes that the "little guy" is always the "good guy." Because the Palestinians are poor, they qualify as the "little guy" and so they are the "good guys" by definition. (This is why leftists everywhere blame Israel for the problem: they are far richer than the Palestinians, so they qualify as the "big guy" and thus the bad guy.) That is what I call "cartoon morality," the "morality" of children's cartoons, where the little guy is always the good guy, and the big guy is always the bad guy. Kerree and the lefties begin with this idiot belief, and it blinds them to what is really going on in the world. So they never do anything in foreign policy except mess things up.
I do remember that the Hildebeast was proclaimed "the smartest woman in the world," very much like the way that Oblahma is the most intelligent president ever. By now all but liberal Kool-Aid drinkers recognize that Oblahma isn't very bright at all. He was good at looking smart to lefty fools who wanted to see him that way, but he isn't very intelligent. So if Putin and the like play him for the fool, it's largely because he is one. I'm beginning to think that the same is true about Shrillary -- she isn't very bright. She doesn't have the brains to accomplish things herself, and she doesn't have the personality to get other people to work with her (thus, the "Hildebeast"). So of course she has no accomplishments to mention. This will not keep her from being the next president, because she is, at least vaguely, a woman; because the Dims will cheat like Hades to get her in; and because the Repubs will run a weak candidate.

Te Dims have not yet eclipsed China. I think the number of forced abortions under the Chicoms' one-child policy is now estimated at over 400M.

I have for ears said that the primary foreign-policy goal for the U.S. should be to bust OPEC. We could do this if the gov't got its idiotic regulations out of the way. "Drill, baby, drill" is only a small part of that. To fully bust OPEC, we should be producing energy along every path that is economically viable: oil, gas, coal (arch-enemy of Oblah-blah-blah-ma), nuclear, and every new thing that comes along. ALL of these are severely limited by useless and destructive government regulations (nuclear most of all).

Anybody who supports the memory of the vicious killer Che Guevara as anything good is as deluded and morally bankrupt as someone who supports the memory of Hitler as good. That Lugo guy Adams writes about would not be allowed on the faculty if he were a Hitler apologist. Yet he supports something even worse. The Nazis murdered about 10M innocent human beings; the Commies about 600M, or 60X as many (at least 100M already-born people, and about 500M forced abortions by the Chicoms). So when I say a Commie supporter is worse than a Nazi supporter, I have the numbers very much on my side.

I am 61 years old and have watched the leftist movement transform from a bunch of hippies who wanted no rules or control over anything -- total libertines -- to a bunch of totalitarians who want to control everyone and everything except sexual and chemical license. i do not think this happened accidentally. I believe that the totalitarians pretty much hijacked the leftist movement from within it. This is pretty consistently what the Communists always have done, which is why Adams' quote of Che Guevara is so fitting. But the moronic left, which is still primarily composed of libertines rather than totalitarians, is too stupid to see this, and they go right on supporting the totalitarians. Of course, if they had any brains, they wouldn't be lefties.

College Isn't For Everyone

A huge "problem" is that businesses have figured out that not-professional degrees do not help people much on the job. So they don't go out of their way to hire people with degrees in the liberal arts and many of the social "sciences" -- much less in the political-bs fields of ethnic studies, women's studies, gay studies, etc., etc., etc, ad nauseam. If you get a 4-year degree in engineering, nursing, accounting, or some such field. -- and thus get a professional degree, that magical piece of paper -- you will likely (not surely) land a good job. If you get a 4-year degree in something like Musical Performance, you will likely not find a job in your field, and they will not hire you as a software engineer. Does this mean that it is stupid to major in Musical Performance? Not if you can afford to get it,and the field fascinates you. But what is stupid is to think that a degree in Musical Performance (or gay studies or some such) will get you a job more advanced than Checkout Clerk or Burger Fryer. It isn't meant to, and should never be sold as such.

I disagree with Kudlow's claim that Oblah-blah-blah-macare would be "incredibly difficult to rewrite or replace." If it were simply repealed, then the free market that Kudlow lauds in his article would fill the void very quickly. The difficult part is electing someone other than Hillary in 2016. Up to that point, Oblah-blah-blah-ma will veto any attempts to repeal, even if the Repubs take the Senate in November. Dennis
You could stop new taxes and regulations for the next TEN years and there would be little growth. Unless you repeal OBlah-blah-blah-macare, there will be little if any growth. It will make hiring employees and making a profit mutually exclusive. The reason companies aren't hiring now is because they're afraid of what Oblah-blah-blah-macare will do to them next year.
You have to get rid of the EPA, not just restrict it. The EPA is staffed totally by enviro-whackos, eco-freaks, Gaia-worshippers, and other sundry progs. They will continue to do damage until they all are put in the unemployment line. Environmental control is one of the few things that it makes sense to do at the Federal level because pollution crosses state lines. Wind and water don't worry about political boundaries. But I think that the EPA has to be completely eliminated and you have to start over, so the entire staff isn't composed of whacko progs.

The other side of the electrical-generating issue is also distorted by idiot government policies. Just as wind power is grossly and stupidly subsidized, so nuclear power is severely penalized by ridiculous regulatory burdens put in by progs. They will argue that nuclear is too expensive, but that is largely due to the regulatory burden.
