    Fiorina was too kind to Clinton. We have no idea how “hardworking” Clinton is. Her actions that are coming out in the wipegate scandal certainly lead me to question Clinton’s intelligence. From the Whitewater scandal forward, Clinton’s apparent goal is self enrichment, not public service. And finally, however one looks at it her policies as a pubic servant are a disaster for the country.

    We need to understand Trump’s policy prescriptions. It would have been better if Trump had said why he thought Nabisco moved south and what he would do to give them an incentive to stay here. We should assume Nabisco made a business decision made based on the cost of doing business here versus Mexico. If US government policy caused Nabisco to make a rational decision to relocate, boycotting Oreos is the wrong way to solve the problem.

    Trump is popular because he focused first on an issue on which most of us agree, illegal immigration. Look at his website, that’s the only policy issue discussed. He is playing off his name recognition as well, and knows how to market himself.

    We need to understand all his policy positions, many of which he says today are different from what he advocated in the past. We called that “flipflops” when Romney did it.

    Beck has taken the “lets understand his full range of policies” approach, the best one for vetting a candidate.

    The candidate who has been most consistent in policy statements over time and with doing what he said he would do is Ted Cruz.

    It’s obvious Khameni believes that power comes from the barrel of a gun….

    It’s sad to say this because I know decent Muslim people as individuals. Given the wording in the Koran, the law dictated by God to their prophet, that tells them to spread Islam via jihad until the entire world submits, and that it’s permissible to use violence and lie to infidels to advance Islam, how can we trust Muslims as a group when the fundamentalist Muslims poison the atmosphere with their violence and hatred? How can we tell who is sincere when their religious law tells them it’s moral to lie to infidels?

    Instead of reinstating the Patriot Act, how about getting the Muslim Brotherhood and its Civilization Jihad out of government, then educating those who protect us in the true nature of Islam and sharia. Read “Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad” by Stephen Coughlin. George W Bush once said “If you’re not with us, you’re against us.” That’s Islam in a nutshell, based on consensus of Islamic scholars regarding Islamic law.

    Sorry to all government political scientists, CO2 is to plants as O2 is to us. It’s not pollution. Anyone who calls it pollution is either ignorant or lying.

    Government imposed price controls are always the best way to destroy an economy. Just look at how well the minimum wage works.

    Hillary must assume the voting public is too stupid to pay attention to her total failure as a “public servant” and general corruption. She may be correct. The elected Obama. Twice.

    I wish Pence had simply said, “it is the right of any private business owner to choose with whom (s)he will do business.”

    When non-scientists write about science, the predictable result is non-science (pronounced nòn´sèns´). AP should stick to the meaningless claptrap they’re good at..

    theBlaze, why label Trey Gowdy as “conservative?” As far as I can see he runs his committees looking for the truth. That should be something any right-thinking person should do regardless of political views. Labeling people is pointless. Compare what they say with what they do, then judge their fitness for public office.

    I wonder if Dr K has considered the effect of Cruz’s filibuster on Obamacare and related government shutdown on the 2014 election results. Seems to me there’s a cause and effect there.

    Perhaps the good judge missed Mr Cruz’s comments after saying every child has a right to a good education. Mr Cruz spoke of school choice for all and eliminating common core. Just saying something is a “right” doesn’t imply the federal government creating a new bureaucracy. In this case it might imply encouraging the states to dismantle one, the stranglehold of the public school systems in so many areas.

    Science does not know how life came from non-life. There is nowhere in serious scientific literature a statement of the sort “life does not come from non-life.”

    The Avast blog entry linked above names one app they say is malware, but the entry also promotes their premium paid software as detecting these apps. I had Avast’s free version on my phone but removed it because it started putting up annoying pop-ups of its own. This is nothing against Avast, just a personal preference.
