Full panic

as is appears more likely that Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination.  Hillary Clinton is likely Democratic nomination.  Two ugly choices, Trump for his uncertain stands (except for immigration!) and Clinton for her totalitarian tendencies.  I hope it works out differently in November.  At this point I would vote for Trump; his policies would like be bad, but at least the MSM will watch him most carefully.  Clinton would be just as bad, and get a free pass from the MSM.

Here is your opposite for you

If I understand correctly, David Axelrod’s theory is that each new president is somehow or somewhat the opposite of the previous president.  He says Trump is a nut in contrast to the cool and collected Obama.  Here is a better contrast: Trump loves the United States and Obama thinks it needs to be punished.  http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/25/opinion/campaign-stops/the-obama-theory-of-trump.html?_r=0

Return the hate money

It appears that Donald Trump has contributed $100,000, or more, to the Clinton Foundation over the years.  My question for Sec. Clinton is, “When will you return the hate money?”  http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/242088-trump-gave-at-least-100k-to-clinton-foundation

Lost

The President regrets lost chances with the Republicans over the past seven years.  Now he is turning down the chance to attend Justice Scalia’s funeral.  I do not think the President has to attend.  But he is losing a chance to make a first step.

Where the Nanny State will take us

“Older people should lose their pensions if they refuse to do community work to stop them being a “negative burden on society”, a former senior Whitehall official has suggested.” via http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/9630862/Elderly-should-do-community-work-or-lose-pension-peer-says.html.

 

If you are not in the harness of the state, then we do not need you.  In UK, state does not serve you, you serve state.  Creepy and totalitarian (via althouse.blogspot.com).

1972

So the conventional wisdom is that the Millenials are going big-time for Sen. Sanders. And also that this will be spearhead for eventual victory for Sen Sanders in November. I think the Democratic party has been down this road before, and it was not helpful for them.
