Common core is nothing more then a means for liberals to control our education system from the Federal level. They will decide what is learned, how its learned and if the kids can regurgitate the liberal philosophy. Its time the Teachers Union is at least cracked so that tenure can be eliminated and teachers who have talent can actually educate our kids free of the liberal BS they're forced to spew in the classroom.

Hey Mark, your fear of guns and self protection aside, can you sanely say you're not safer when someone is breaking into your house if you have a gun?

Alvin, I would not be too concerned about Christie's fate. If its possible to "get" him the main street media will get the job done. They focus like laser beams on any potential scandal involving a Republican. Since the transparent integrity driven regime called the Obama Administration has been in office they've had no scandals at all to focus on. This is like a breath of fresh air.

Don, Will makes no such argument for a system similar to China. He advocated for a Judicatory that actually does what the Constitution requires. If the Judiciary actually worked as designed, bereft of ideological stacking, then voter knowledge could continue to be pathetically lacking. The big problem with Somin is he tries to attach rationalism to irrationalism. It will always be irrational to vote and not know or understand the issues. It makes absolute sense to reduce the scope of the federal government and move issues closer to the localities where a voters vote will actually have a personal impact. I tend to agree with your final assessment, only because I believe the average voter will always be an idiot.

jjhehir, that was probably the most cogent argument I've heard for legalization. Would it also help me get through the remaining miserable years left on this idiots presidency?

I could blather on and on about my daughters policy that will cost her $300/ month plus a huge deductible on a $20k income. Of course she is not eligible for any subsidies. I was tempted to re-enter her data and make her a minority to she how much she'd get. She is just one of the many swarming to the ACA for health care. Not because she didn't have any but because you liberals passed the dumbest law in history that got her policy canceled. Tell us chuck, how many of the signers you love citing had insurance before you forced your plan on them? You constantly made up
a fluctuating number of uninsured to push this out. How about you start citing all the people that never had insurance who signed up? Being a committed lefty means you don't really care about or even understand what facts are, but the reality is your Messiah has screwed us all. Now your union lackeys are squawking. Why is that Chucky? Explain why those committed lefties dont like the ACA? My daughter wont be buying a new car now and we'll just keep patching the old one. Thats the reality (not the fantasy you live in) of the ACA on the economy.

wmarincic. Hope the test was negative. This will hit those idiots eventually but seeing De Blasio elected Mayor leads me to believe the stupid still outnumber the sane and somehow the DNC will effectively blame the Republicans. No way the MSM will allow the Democrats to take the fall for a plan they conceived, designed and pushed through congress. It's their job to see nothing negative touches the Democrats. Mark my words, if lefties start paying more, your taxes will be raised to give them an additional subsidy.

Yes Mr Reilly, we're all narrowed minded and lacking in vision because we read the second amendment ("the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed") to mean what it says. It does not state that you can re-define what the word infringe means. Here is the legal definition "to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another". The founding fathers placed no restrictions on your "right" to have weapons. None at all. You are more then willing to allow the people you elect to violate the law as they see fit. One day they will violate a law that effects you, You have given them your blessing to do what they want. I seriously doubt you are either a gun owner/hunter or a student of history. People like you who supported Hitler's confiscation of guns got 6 million people killed. Wake from your stupor and actually think about what you believe. Maybe their next step is to search your house without a warrant. Cant wait to read how you support that as long as its your neighbors house.

Hey Don, The flip side of that is that you blame him for nothing. He gets a pass and cover for everything simply because he is black and or a Democrat. Fast and Furious, IRS, AP, Benghazi, ACA, etc. What you would normally crucify a Republican for, you surprisingly find acceptable with Obama. Do you think you liberals will ever stumble upon even a shred of integrity? You're just hypocrites with hand out driven ethics.

Hallelujah, now the DNC is succeeding in keeping the lemmings uninformed and stoned. What a great country we're becoming under liberal leadership. Anti Religion, Anti American, Anti capitalist, anti constitutionalists, pro gay, pro pot head, pro abortion, pro open boarders, anti work, pro welfare, anti military, anti family,......... I think we've actually reached nirvana......Well not quite, Legalized cocaine could put us over the top or maybe legalized pedophilia. Those cant be far behind on the lefts agenda. We can only hope!
