Theology Professor Out Of Duke After PC Brouhaha, Bradford Richardson, Washington Times

Common Sense Commentary: Should traditional – and especially, Conservative – Americans still be willing to pay premium tuition prices to send their kids to elite PC schools like Duke University, UC Berkeley, and others? Yes, some parents can educate and reeducate their kids in spite of the propaganda – but many cannot. The only way to stop this PC nonsense and the brainwashing of American college students is to hurt them in the pocketbook, where it matters, and find alternative places for our progeny’s college education.

Should America Even Be Meeting With Abbas Or The Palestinians? Mike Huckabee

What We’re Not Supposed To Talk About: The Problem Is Not The Islamic State, But Islamic Hate, Raymond Ibrahim, Raymond ibrahim.com

Quote: “The greater issue is that regular Muslims who are not called “ISIS,” “Taliban,” “Boko Haram,” or “al-Qaeda,” commit similar acts—and much more frequently—though this is rarely mentioned by big media lest people begin to connect the dots…Accordingly, what “extremist” “terrorist” and “militant” groups are doing is only the notable tip of the iceberg of what Muslims are doing all around the world.”

Is Singapore’s Health Care System The Answer For America? Ezra Klein, Vox
Quote: “The bulk of the American government’s intervention into the health care system is done through health insurance, and so American analysts often look at Singapore’s insurance system and stop there. But the bulk of the Singapore government’s intervention into the health care system is through the health care system itself.”

The Problem With Science: speculative theory, bad science, statistical chicanery, phony research, science as religion – and much more, Jeremy Samuel Faust, Slate

Quote: “Let’s face it: People like science when it supports their views. I see this every day…Who needs science when you have something mightier—personal experience?…Most of what you read and hear about turns out to be mere associations, and mostly fairly weak ones, at that.”

Common Sense Commentary: Hollywood will never “wake up” as the second article advises. The only way to change TV and films is to change the spiritual perspective of people in the industry. Or just start over with a new conservative industry somewhere else. In today’s digital world, its not out of the question anymore. Because, as it turns out the only idiots are not the folks at CBS.
