    1. Interdependence between national security at home and security for those beyond our borders. ... Sanders believes Americans are more secure, not less, if U.S. policy helps people abroad escape fear and deprivation. ... Sanders would approach the goal in different ways, by helping people find safety and security primarily through nonmilitary means, and by addressing what he sees as the root rather than proximate causes of global instability. ...While Clinton has set a 65,000-person cap on refugees from Syria, Sanders says there is “no magic number.” Sanders says that welcoming civilians fleeing disaster and danger will do more to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 4-22-2016 | Paul Bedard
    There are 55.3 million Latinos in America, nearly triple the 1980 population, and those under 18 years old are the largest group, a demographic fact likely to influence the future of the country, according to Census figures. The new report helps to complete the picture of the U.S. immigration population, which previous reports pegged at 61 million. According to Pew, 35.3 million, or 64 percent of the total number of the Latino immigrant population are Mexican-origin. A 2008 Pew report said that more than half of the immigrants from Mexico were illegally in the United States.

The slippery slope is more like a cliff whose edge goes straight into chaotic darkness.  The Bible was 100% correct to predict that the last days would be characterized be lawlessness (Matthew 24:12, Revelation 9:21, 2 Thessalonians 2:7, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Daniel 8:23, Matthew 13:41).  Complete governmental control of all amoral aspects of life (education, taxes, guns, farming, monetary policy, etc) and virtually no...

    Image courtesy of The Color of Crime When I was doing research on homicide rates and attempting to determine what the primary factors were that resulted in varying homicide rates between states and nations, I came across the 2005 version of The Color of Crime.  The study looks at crime and tests hypotheses about crime and arrest rates in the United States that have been forbidden from general discourse in the media.  The topic is beset by unproven assumptions and political correctness.  The Color of Crime has been updated to use the latest data available as of early 2016,...

    There is a limit to how much stress can be put on something before it is finally and irreversibly destroyed. It goes by several different names. Critical mass, tipping point, and system overload are but a few. In each case, the term refers to an event that finally breaks the camel's back (to use yet another term for the same thing). Society is not merely reaching its critical mass; it is reaching it so swiftly that predictably, there will be an abrupt and catastrophic breakdown of historic proportions, eclipsing even the fall of the Roman Empire.

    Does climate change make it immoral to have kids? Dave Bry The decision whether or not to have a child is one of the bigger ones a person will make in life – often the biggest. I needed some strong convincing from my wife when it came time for us to make it. Most of my reluctance was self-interested: I liked my life well enough, and I didn’t want to change it. My wife talked about feeling a biological imperative, which I had no answer for. Who was I to stand in the way of something like that? I signed...

    NYT ^ | 3/27/16 | Neil Irwin
    It is true that a trade deficit subtracts from a country’s gross domestic product. G.D.P. measures the value of goods and services produced within a country’s borders, so when a country is selling less stuff abroad than it buys from abroad, the country is making less stuff, and as a result there are fewer jobs. This piece of the Trump theory of trade is true. Read the rest in the link.

The margin is much closer than a recent Marquette poll that showed Cruz with a 10 percentage point lead.

Leaders from Monsanto, MasterCard and other firms joined Gov. Jay Nixon Friday at the St. Louis Regional Chamber to express opposition to Senate Joint Resolution 39. The bill survived a 37-hour filibuster by Senate Democrats. If approved by the Legislature, it would go to voters. The proposal calls for amending the state Constitution to create religious protections for some businesses objecting to gay marriage.

Consequently, when I was assigned to lead the prosecution of a terrorist cell that had bombed the World Trade Center and was plotting an even more devastating strike—simultaneous attacks on the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, the United Nations complex on the East River, and the FBI’s lower Manhattan headquarters—I had no trouble believing what our government was saying: that we should read nothing into the fact that all the men...

At the top of that list, in both primary contests, is Texas. The Lone Star State has the biggest cache -- 222 Democratic delegates and 155 for Republicans. And perhaps no candidate is fighting harder for that prize than Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. The senator went all out on Monday, holding rallies in voter-rich Dallas, Houston and...

Condoms are already available in district high schools. The new policy, initiated by Superintendent Richard Carranza, specifies that parents will not be allowed to opt out of the program.
