  1. Bernie Sanders Wants To Cancel All Student Debt and Make College Free, at a Cost of $2.2 Trillion: https://reason.com/2019/06/24/bernie-sanders-cancel-student-debt-trillion/
  2. And how exactly at the end of the day is the majority of U.S. federal government spending funded? I guess those receiving reparation payments would in effect getting part of their paid federal income taxes back, assuming they had taxable income. "Free" money! And why should the descendants of citizens from non-slave owning states be forced to pay for reparations via their federal income taxes? No, this whole reparations "discussion" is a ploy by democrats to ensure that African Americans keep voting Democrat. After all, African Americans are no longer the largest racial minority in the U.S.A, Hispanic/Latino Americans are.
  3. This One New Poll of Democrats Explains Why Donald Trump Will Be Reelected: https://reason.com/2019/06/20/this-one-new-poll-of-democrats-explains-why-donald-trump-will-be-reelected/ Agreed. Unless the stable of Democratic candidates strongly moderate their message they probably won't beat Mr. Trump in 2020. Why are they listening to the minority radical progressive wing of their base and not the moderate majority? Perhaps the card carrying members of the Democratic party here at the GID can shed some light on this?
  4. So is Brefeuf now the logical choice for liberal Catholic families to send their children?
  5. So how do you effectively prevent the "white men" from having the majority of political power in the United States? Is there objective, verifiable proof that non-"white men" having the majority of political power will be an improvement?
  6. The Right Call on Iran, But It Shouldn’t Be Trump’s Call: https://www.cato.org/blog/right-call-iran-it-shouldnt-be-trumps-call Agreed. In situations like this the decision to even fire a single missile needs to be removed from the office of the POTUS. The legacy of the Cold War, where the belief that the POTUS needed the quick and unitary power to respond to a nuclear strike by the USSR could somewhat be justified, is still with us today.
  7. Some People Are Buying Their Way Into Top Public Schools. That's Not How School Choice Should Work: https://reason.com/2019/06/21/some-people-are-buying-their-way-into-top-public-schools-thats-not-how-school-choice-should-work/
  8. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/06/19/coleman_hughes_the_moment_you_give_someone_reparations_youve_made_them_into_a_victim.html But we are a society the seems to increasingly define itself by our victimhood, and what government can do, no what it has to do, to right that wrong, even if it is a "microaggression". So what Jim Crow laws are still actively in place in the United States of America? Here in Indiana?
  9. What does this mean gonzo? That there needs to be a U.S. Constitutional amendment which limits the number of "white men" that can hold elected office in Congress?
  10. https://www.indystar.com/story/news/education/2019/06/21/archdiocese-indianapolis-brebeuf-jesuit-catholic-what-it-means/1522790001/ One wonders how this will affect future enrollment at the preparatory school? Current support from parents, students, and alumni appears to be steadfast.
  11. If you are a member of the Caucasian race you were implicit in the evil of slavery, the plight of the American indian, placing Japanese Americans into camps during WW2, etc. , and have to pay. Reparations for blacks, American indians, Japanese, Chinese, etc. all we will be paid via increases in the federal income tax for "whites only". Seems to be simplest and most direct method, does it not?
  12. https://reason.com/2019/06/18/gorsuch-joins-ginsburg-in-decrying-a-colossal-exception-to-the-ban-on-double-jeopardy/ This "proof of a different element" is just jargon designed to give the federal government more power to prosecute Americans. It is anathema to the Double Jeopardy clause of the U.S. Constitution. 99.9% of all offenses should be tried by the states, and the states only.
  13. Activists Want a Problematic Mural of George Washington Destroyed. It Will Cost a High School $600,000.: https://reason.com/2019/06/20/george-washington-mural-san-francisco-racist/
  14. https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/06/oberlin-college-descent-into-disgrace/ Agreed. Mr. Will is spot on with his commentary. The current Oberlin College is now a disgrace to its storied liberal past.
  15. Britain keeps knocking them out of the park, this time with an assault on free speech: https://reason.com/2019/06/19/the-u-k-has-banned-harmful-gender-stereotypes-in-advertisements/ The ban was implemented following an ASA review which concluded that stereotypical depictions pave the way for "real-world psychological, physical, economic, social and political harm for individuals and groups." Specifically, it mentions that the media portrayals may influence which toys children play with, "which can have long-term impacts." In adults, a stereotypically feminine rendering of women's roles can decrease their "motives and ambition, attitudes to involvement in politics, performance on maths tests and preferences for leadership roles." Certain scenarios are exempt from the new law. An ad may depict "a woman doing the shopping" or "a man doing DIY," so long as it is not presented in a light deemed insulting by the ASA. It also permits gender stereotypes when the ad explicitly challenges them. Gender stereotypes "constrict people's choices," says the ASA review. Yet the ban itself does precisely that, as it limits companies from advertising their products as they see fit and shields consumers from ideas associated with wrongthink.
  16. But won't the Trump administration, or I should say the American taxpayers, effectively bail them out with free money, much like the never ending Farm Bill has done for decades?
  17. Yes, I do criticize it. That doesn't necessarily mean I want to underpinnings of it (aka the U.S. Constitution) to change.
  18. So you don't believe manufacturers whose products are affected by Mr. Trump's tariffs should be allowed to raise prices on those products? Mr. Trump caused this problem, not the steel companies.
  19. Sorry that you don't see the difference between supporting the U.S. Constitution and being critical of the U.S federal government. That body violates that storied document, the foundation for our country, on almost a daily basis.
