Mar 26 2015 - The Desert Sun by JOHN M. CRISP
I've been thinking about how my college classroom will look and feel next fall if some of my students are carrying handguns on their hips.
Editor's Comments:
It might make Crisp more even handed in his lectures. Ha. bbm

Mar 29 2015 - Everything Oregon by NICHOLAS KRISTOF
There are parasites of all kinds in poor countries.
Editor's Comments:
Interesting article about corruption. But Kristoff wants companies to regulate that corruption. That is stupid as that is not the company's job. Why not your favorite John Kerry and your favorite UN? bbm

Campaign for President
Mar 24 2015 - The Dallas Morning News by CARL P. LEUBSDORF
Sen. Ted Cruz is a man in a hurry.
Editor's Comments:
He is probably right, but biased observers like him are the reason. The press never stops being liberal. bbm
Mar 27 2015 - The Desert Sun by ANDRES OPPENHEIMER
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s announcement that he is running for the Republican presidential nomination is great news for Democrats: He will push the other Republican hopefuls to the right on immigration, further scaring away Hispanic voters and making it more difficult for Republicans to win next year’s elections.
Editor's Comments:
What the author doesn't understand is that Latinos are not in favor of open borders, either. bbm

The economy
Mar 28 2015 - The New York Times by Paul Krugman
Two impossible things happened to the U.S. economy over the course of the past year — or at least they were supposed to be impossible, according to the ideology that dominates half our political spectrum. First, remember how Obamacare was supposed to be a gigantic job killer? Well, in the first year of the Affordable Care Act’s full implementation, the U.S. economy as a whole added 3.3 million jobs — the biggest gain since the 1990s. Second, half a million of those jobs were added in California, which has taken the lead in job creation away from Texas.
Editor's Comments:
Nutty Krugman is at it again. California got jobs because of High Tech which liberals haven't been able to strangle yet with regulations. Then he blames on the housing bubble on Bush when it in fact it was his Democratic friends that pushed the rules so that unqualified borrowers could have a house. Then their bubble burst. And he whacks Ronald Reagan, 18 years of great economic growth under Reagan policies, that were followed by Bush I and Clinton. We haven't even got back to those levels with Obama, let alone had any real growth. bbm

Mar 26 2015 - Penn Live by Paul Krugman
The 2016 election is still 19 mind–numbing, soul–killing months away. There is, however, another important election in just six weeks, as Britain goes to the polls. And many of the same issues are on the table.
Editor's Comments:
Always the same tune, and the notes are not harmonious. bbm

Iran's nuclear programs
Mar 27 2015 - The New York Times by Thomas L. Friedman
I can think of many good reasons to go ahead with the nuclear deal with Iran, and I can think of just as many reasons not to. So, if you’re confused, let me see if I can confuse you even more.
Editor's Comments:
Nothing but wishful thinking. bbm

Mar 31 2015 - Columbus Dispatch by NICHOLAS KRISTOF
One sign of a landmark shift in public attitudes: A poll last year found that Americans approved more of gays and lesbians (53 percent) than of evangelical Christians (42 percent).
Editor's Comments:
He says, "....and it is offensive to see good people derided." Hmmm, isn't that what he does in the beginning. Let me know, Kristof, when you ever see a liberal doing that. bbm
