Free tuition for two years and pay the kid back if he doesn't graduate in four; Six Flags doesn’t give that entertainment guarantee.
The everyday people of America long for strong warrior male leadership of the kind that has sustained the human race from the dawn of time. Talk down, much? Ext, that sentence was off-putting. Should I make the effort to read the article or not?
Careful, daddy, don’t want the Bull Moose to think you are trying to horn in on his girlfriend. Don’t want the myopic moose to think you ARE his girlfriend.
Cheerio? Daddy, I hate to break your balloon.
Almost metaphorical. TK, Very funny!
It this standard operating procedure for "journalists"? No. More common with radio and TV “talent” even at the local level.
Ramos is disqualified as a journalist because he wants his judgment to replace yours. A journalist is respectful enough to let you make your own decisions.
the definition for that job title has become pretty loosey goosey Yes, OL, I explain in talks that the label “journalist” has to be earned fresh each day.
He may put a card reading "Press" in his hatband but that won’t make Univision political activist Jorges Ramos a journalist.
Trump is good at blasting those who disagree with him,. . . . . . but now that the national media has been exposed, he needs to be sidelined by listing exactly how erratic and nonsensical are some of his positions.

Per Powerline, Trump goes after Walker with BS. Methinks the bloom is coming off the opportunist.

who at JOM is the smartest Jane, those of us who know we are not the smartest. Jane, when do you south? We’ll be short-trip Naples-ing for a wedding in November.

Insty: The candidate he most resembles, actually, is Barack Obama, circa 2007. I said this last night.

Also, the boys in France may not have known what was coming.

Aren't active duty military members allowed to wear their uniforms Not sure a non-official medal can be pinned on a uniform. A non-official medal would put the soldier out of uniform.

I’m going to sign off, too, for the night. On the way to bed, I did have a strange thought last night ... That the reason Trump is not the answer is: 1) that he shares too much with Zero and Jeb when it comes to packaging. 2) that he hasn’t demonstrated principles by showing consistent adherence to them. 3) that he hasn’t shown he understands the founding documents of the country. Night all! Sleep well.

Miss Marple, I'll try to describe them tomorrow night.

No, Janet, it doesn’t debunk anything. The old joke is, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” Chapter 4 of my book is a pdf for free that talks about Medusa representing the terror of the past... or the terror of life... and how one should be careful how one uses experience.

Miss Marple, before you go. I have some old books that I would willingly give you, gratis, if you could make some money from them. I could send you titles and then the books if you were interested in any of them. Cleaning the cellar.

Gus, I was recalling the analysis of the decision from a CD of the Teaching Company Course on the Supreme Court.

Miss Marple, I like your example of Carthage. It raises the question about re-validating principles. rse’s book damns the elite for social transformation absent re-validation. I think those threads are the center of effective education: -- What can I know? -- How should I behave? -- How should I interact with others?

Lack of responsibility is the elephant in the room. Abortion is a symptom of a sad state of mind, culture, and upbringing (familial and societal).

A working brain and a working heart. Science has expanded our understanding beyond when Roe v. Wade was decided. Someday we will know more about the onset of self-awareness and narrative that is integral to consciousness and we will have to deal with how to better address the interests of the fetus, the mother, and society. The trimester divide may disappear.

The time to prevent all this suffering of unwanted children is BEFORE conception. Yes! All of this hand-wringing about women's health and right to choose and such is BS. Yes! Abortion is being used as birth control, pure and simple. And lazy people are delaying it and then aborting babies who could survive. Yes. And it isn‘t nice. I was taken to task once for describing someone as “evil” who was simply self-centered, egocentric, and nasty, so I am careful to use the word for the Hitlers and Pol Pots, but that is just me. We both want no abortion. The problem is that banning it not stop it, but rather move it back underground. We need better science and an education (and/or religious upbringing) that lends itself to developing character.
