It occurs to me...

That the reason so many clear thinking, rational conservative are so unhappy with the election because it turns out there is no point to carefully considering the positions of the various candidates to select one most compatible with your one's own views.  There is 15% of the population, 95% of which that votes for the candidate with the same color skin.  So give them what they want, good and hard.

Give the people what they want, good and hard

As HL Mencken once said.  The Democrats want to tax the rich, how about something like this: 90% tax on contractural compensation in excess or likely to be in excess of $500,000 for a finite deliverable like an athletic season, a concert tour, motion picture, a book or a season of television programs.  At some point, you have made enough money.   And repeal the Eisenhower tax cuts!

I passed through Minneapolis this week and was so impressed by the friendliness of the people. It was such an enjoyable experience after having spent so much time inside the Beltway and in Southern California. So I just wanted to say, thank you. And Go Vikings!

LTC Dooley 's thesis

Dooley's thesis is pretty unremarkable. People who hold the view that they are superior by virtue of their race, culture or religion need to be disabused of that notion or the notion will propagate. What made Germany and Japan into the pacifist allies of the US they now are? Engagement? Diplomacy? Nope. You kill enough of them and break enough of their stuff so that those who remain realize their ideology is a loser.
