FRANK LUNTZ THINKS COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES ARE LEADING MILLENNIALS TOWARDS SOCIALISM:

We have lost, it’s not like we are losing, we have lost that generation. And I don’t care if you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, none of the above. The fact that 58 percent [of millennials] say socialism is the better form of economics, that is the damage of academia,” he said at a breakfast event in Cleveland.

It’s so weird how little agency Republicans give those that disagree with them. Socialist? Must be indoctrinated. Democrat? Must be on food stamps.

REP. STEVE KING WONDERS WHAT ‘SUB-GROUP’ BESIDES WHITES CONTRIBUTED MORE TO CIVILIZATION: So ahistorical and so racist. Does he not remember that Christianity set human progress back for hundreds of years?

THE REPUBLICANS’ DISASTROUS DAY ONE: A good recap of last night’s stupidity. I don’t know how you can be a thinking person and vote for this Republican ticket. These imbeciles offered zero policy prescriptions. They merely talked about the maliciousness of Hillary Clinton. “Lock Her Up” was actually chanted by the crowd. It cannot get much lower than this, people.

THE WORLD IS TAKING ITS REVENGE AGAINST THE ELITES. WHEN WILL AMERICA’S WAKE UP?

Everyone was down with the international entrepreneuriat in those sunny days. Less than a week after Obama’s salute to them at Stanford, Hillary Clinton paid avisit to an innovative co-working space in Denver and rolled out a plan for rewarding this very same cohort of clear-eyed, tech-respecting citizens. “Today’s dynamic and competitive global economy demands an ambitious national commitment to technology, innovation and entrepreneurship,” declared the “briefing” her campaign released on that occasion; to make that commitment, Clinton proposed deferring the student loans of young people who start businesses … because I guess the promise of tech riches isn’t incentive enough.
