Students that chose the most expensive Ivy League schools are the ones wracking up the super huge debts. My kid and I went over what were the best schools, but not the ones with a name. There was some debt but not exorbitant and the teaching was all done by Professors and not teaching assistants. As it was, the College – now a University was 23rd in the country for proficiency. We spent what we could afford and got the best. I do NOT want to pay for those who ran up bills, they will never pay. just so they could say they came from this or that big name school.

I believe Rubio is inexperienced and would not be too old to run in 20 years. I cannot respect someone who cannot complete a first term in the Senate and then maybe run and serve as a Governor and garner as much experience as possible. The Presidency is not a time for on the job training. As it is, it is about his ambition and not the country. That said, Obama is fulfilling his stated goal to fundamentally change the country. He is fulfilling an agenda which works out well since it is harder to handle a problem with a point of succeeding than it is to handle it with the idea of doing a terrible job and then walking away from the situation. That is far easier to do and so Obama has moved from mess to mess through his two terms succeeding in his purpose. Had he meant to do a good job he was ill prepared – one term in the state legislature voting present and then half a term as a US senator of negligible note. Rubio has a similar background and his agenda is personal aggrandizement. He should not be elevated to the Presidency in this difficult time. N. Korea just tested an ICBM – we could be hit by a nuclear missile. He has not been tested or been around long enough to have picked up maturity and experience. Trump or the Governors! Kasich served numerous terms nationally in Congress and is on his second term as Governor. The other two Governors have served through natural disasters in their home states. Rubio has by comparison, struggled through a tough debate!
I think this argument that holding a Senate seat makes one incompetent to serve in the office of the Presidency is a red herring. JFK was a senator and did a fairly good job with both foreign and domestic policy. Obama is not incompetent- he said what he was going to do from the very beginning: Fundamentally change the U.S. He did it very well too.
We face no challenge that is more grave and existential than those posed by terrorism and unfriendly nuclear nations. In this area, Rubio, through his Senate committee assignments, has more experience than anyone running except Mrs. Clinton.
Sadly — and I hope reversibly — more and more of what used to be state sovereignty has been effectively usurped by the federal government., falling now within the purview of Congress. Therefore, a governor without federal experience is facing a far steeper learning curve than someone with a Senator’s experience.
These three governors have worn us out with their constant recitation of their accomplishments as governors, but the fact is, in terms of the most essential and RELEVANT experience, Rubio has the advantage.

My last dog made it to 16 years old. I can only hope that Rufus’ new family feels even half the love I had for my lillipuppy ( and still do) Dogs are so loving and non-judgmental. When the whole world seems against you, you feel a warm muzzle at your neck and you know you still have one ever so loving friend and suddenly it all seems better. I am so thankful that Rufus will spend his last days with a loving family.
I believe God gave us dogs so we could witness unconditional love in the flesh.

Cruz got his American citizenship since his mother was American. Did he get Cuban citizenship due to his father being Cuban??? Important to know since Cuba is still a communist country. Ask the question!

The Establishment darling is Rubio. But fair is fair – and it is true that few people like Cruz.

You may not have great grandchildren. Consider the situation in the “Caliphate”, were so many people are killed for their beliefs or their ethnicity. What do you suppose is the future situation in Europe with influx of Muslims?

“One of the assailants won special praise from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement which called him a “martyr” and “hero.” Yes, Abbas, and he is the one whom Netanyahu is supposed to sit down with and discuss “peace”.

JFK was not a socialist. Nor are all Catholics – some may be just as some Lutherans, or some Baptists might be. However, it has no bearing on religion.

Part of getting older and with the passage of time is to mature. This interview was done in 1991 That was a quarter of a century ago and he has said that he changed his views when a friend considered an abortion but had the child and was so glad that was the case. It made Trump alter his opinion completely.
I think it's called being stabbed in the back by Sarah Palin one too many times. I gave up on her today, having hoped before this that her stupid support of McCain and Hatch's re-election campaigns were merely mistakes.

As I understand it, they were to be married. However, it seemed that Dakota had been married several years ago and there was no divorce recorded. Bristol could hardly go ahead with another wedding. She broke the engagement. I do no wish to think badly of a national hero, but he knew his situation was what it was and she is too trusting. She did the only thing she could do and that was have the baby alone. I feel badly for her as she must have felt pretty awful at the situation from a variety of views: she had loved and lost him, she had trusted and found it misplaced, she had this happen when she though this time she was creating a home and a family. So yes I feel badly for her and I have lost some respect for Dakota Meyer.
My children will be first to say, "Dad always said, the largest problem facing us is foolish women and evil men, see that you be neither of them!”
People often ask, “Well, what is it that God would have me to do with my life?”
They are often surprised to hear, “How about to hate evil?”
We can be saddened for Bristol’s plight. We can be saddened for Dakota Meyer ! We may be saddened for the other women in Dakota Meyer’s life or at least this wife you speak of.
We should be more saddened that the enemy shall use this to blaspheme God and turn souls away from Christ !
Every life has a time for one of its seasons. Our difficulty is, we do not know when that time of often being reproved shall come to and end.
Without repentence, it doesn’t get better. It only gets worse !
I am speaking from experience !
God does have mercy on the thousands of them who love Him and keep His commandments, but keeping in mind one of those commandments is to repent, Bristol might consider that and correct her behavior.

If a steady parade of birds fly by me for a period of seven years, each one quacks and they all look like the decoys I see at the hunting supply store, would I not be reasonably certain that what I have been seeing are ducks?

What this study confirms is that they know they do not have to work as hard.

Odd they should say that when another poll today showed them within the margin of error. It all depends on who is asking and how they are asking!

Christmas was declared a national holiday in 1870. Tree decoration dates back to the 15th or 16th century in Germany and German immigrants brought the tradition with them to America. The tradition became universally accepted as associated with Christmas. Decorating a tree otherwise would seem irrelevant. However, since Story objects, she is correct in skipping the ceremony and I imagine she will not have a tree in her home. In addition, I expect that she will be in her office on Friday, December 25th making herself useful to pay back the time she has spent in “Scrooging” everyone else’s holiday.

If Yad Vashem, which investigates every incident very thoroughly and declares a person as Righteous Among The Nations, then you can be quite, quite sure that the incident happened as described. These people all risked their lives to save Jews and some gave their lives doing it. The list has many people, according to the article 26,000 named since the war, the Sergeant and HRH Prince Phillip’s mother who hid Jews in occupied Greece among them. I am glad to see their courage recognized.
