When asked for their religious beliefs, I expect that most normal people answer with something like, “I’m a Christian,” “I’m a Jew,” or “I’m an agnostic.” Politicians, however, are not normal. They’re usually too calculating by half. When they say, “I’m a person of faith,” odds are, they aren’t.
Here’s some advice for anyone who wants to avoid suffering in this life:
Does anyone else get the idea that most of Bernie Sanders’ supporters are college students who don’t want to repay their loans?
Of course, they’re in this fix thanks to Democrats (and some Republicans) who flooded the higher-ed market with easy loans; greedy, (mostly) liberal university administrators who took advantage by jacking up tuition far beyond the inflation rate (allowing them to pay themselves handsomely); entitled young people who demand expensive services and facilities as their right; a glut of regulations that drive up costs; and politically correct campuses that offer expensive degrees that provide no practical preparation for today’s job market.
Young people with few career prospects and huge debt loads seem fixated on the idea of income inequality and corporate greed. Ironically, lied to and let down by the Democrats, they are being driven into the waiting arms of a demagogic socialist, who seems to think that the solution is to confiscate even higher taxes from their parents. I wonder how that will work for them?
Perhaps they should focus their rage on who actually brought them to this pass–the liberals and progressives in government and education who have fed the maw of the university-industrial complex.
Ted Cruz is like a Timex watch. He took a political licking and kept on ticking. An impressive (and to me) surprise victory.
Donald Trump learned that details–such as a coherent policy and a ground game–are important. After smearing Cruz over and over in the final weeks, he turned classy in defeat–another surprise. With his aura of invincibility dimmed, I wonder how long he continues to dominate the opinion polls.
Marco Rubio ran a strong, and surprising, third. I expect him to pick up momentum and eventually win the nomination after a tough fight.
Hillary Clinton escaped by the skin of her teeth against a 74-year-old socialist. If she hangs on, she will be the weakest Democratic nominee in a generation.

When people agree with you, let them.

Now that her husband has returned the United States, the mother of two may be facing an even bigger challenge. She’s trying to rebuild her life after suffering from years of what she says was abuse in her marriage to Saeed.
Sometimes the obvious thing still needs to be said.
