When did Hillary Clinton realize that she made a big mistake by publicly venting her hatred for millions of Americans because they don’t agree with her politics and aren’t going to vote for her? Did the shock come right after she said the words that will haunt her for the rest of the campaign?

It took Donald Trump to show how doubters, cowards, and appeasers control the dialogue of our war on terror. Even conservative British Prime Minister David Cameron took a turn throwing a few potshots at Trump’s supposedly anti-Muslim comments.
We can cut Cameron a little slack. His Islamic problem is a lot bigger than ours and the UK is much closer to the action.
Every time I hear that a friend is going on a business trip I get confused and have to ask a very simple question: why fly?
Amazing, cheap technology puts people anywhere in the world on top of your desk. Is it really necessary to go through the out of town business ritual? Apparently it is, because no matter how unpleasant the experience we still put up with being humiliated, profiled, and marginalized just so we can be within touching distance of a person we could just as easily talk to face to face on our laptops.
America has always been conflicted about what to do with a majority. Should we stand behind our democratic values, or ignore what a majority wants so we can benefit a minority? Politics, not principle usually answers that question. It has a tendency to create majorities when they are needed to make a point. One of the worst things that can happen with “vast majority” thinking is that bad people are turned into good people.
