If California Sen. Kamala Harris is elected president in 2020 and reelected in 2024, by the time she leaves office 114 months from now she might have a coherent answer to the question of whether Americans should be forbidden to have what 217 million of them currently have: private health insurance. Her 22 weeks of contradictory statements, and her Trumpian meretriciousness about her contradictions, reveal a frivolity about upending health cares complex 18% of Americas economy. And her bumblings illustrate how many of the Democratic presidential aspirants, snug in their intellectual silos, have lost if they ever had an aptitude for talking like, and to, normal Americans.
On this 243rd anniversary of the beginning of the best thing that ever happened The Great Republic was Winston Churchills tribute many of todays most interesting arguments about Americas nature and meaning are among conservatives. One concerns the relevance of the Declaration of Independence to the contested question of how to construe the Constitution.

Bernie Sanders cant decide what socialism is. At times he frames it as nothing more than New Deal-style capitalism, not so different from the Scandinavian economies of Norway, Sweden or Denmark.

My father died with a smile on his face. But, of course, he would.
When the president of the United States sides with a murderous dictator over our own CIA, you would think it would be big news. When that dictator is a communist who has threatened the United States with missile attacks, you would think leaders of the Republican Party might be at least a little agitated.
Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper called Donald Trump the worst president in U.S. history, deriding a leader who removes children from their mothers and puts them in cages; Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders called him the most dangerous: a liar, racist, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe and religious bigot who thinks hes above the law.
WASHINGTON One of the largest obstacles to the defeat of Donald Trump in the 2020 election is the radicalism of the Democratic Party on the issue of abortion.

The earnest improvers at the College Board, which administers the SAT, should ponder Abraham Maslows law of the instrument. In 1966, Maslow, a psychologist, said essentially this: If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. The College Board wants to solve a complex social problem that it and its test are unsuited to solve.
It shouldnt be surprising that Scot Peterson the coward cop of Broward County, Fla. has been charged with crimes that could send him to prison for 100 years.
