- The Washington Post - 0 views

  •  
    Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist, who's not letting up against Clinton. Clinton has tried to move left to counter Sanders's strength on some issues, with mixed success. The turf on which the two are fighting now is much further from the center than it once was: Democrats are seven percentage points more likely to identify as liberal than they were in 2007, before the last contested primary.

  •  
    Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski says that the candidate isn't afraid of Thursday night's debate. "He's not afraid to take a question," he told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America." "The issue is an issue of fairness," he added, claiming that Fox News anchor Megyn...
  •  
    Donald Trump's campaign manager is saying that Donald trump is not afraid of losing the caucus because there is never a fair debate and he will still run and answer all the questions people throw at him.
  •  
    I think that Trump is pulling out of the debate, not because he's intimidated, but I think it may be a way of seeing how many supporters he has. At the end of the article, it says that there is expected to be substantially less viewers. I'm thinking that this is Trump's way of seeing how many suporters he has now, and see how hard he has to work in the future to get more suporters.

    I guess planet earth is blue... and there's nothing left to do... Farewell Major Tom.
  •  
    David Bowie was an icon, not only to people but to the genre of pop itself. "Bowie died two days after the release of 'Blackstar', his 29th album, which had been timed to coincide with his birthday. The singer had kept a low profile in recent years after reportedly suffering a heart attack in the 2000s, and it had not been widely known that he was struggling with cancer."
  •  
    This makes me so sad hearing that one of the famous musicians passes away from cancer. He was such a good singer and actor! You would think that doctors would have found a cure for cancer by now because now my great aunt is going though it. RIP David Bowie!!

How Donald Trump's deportation plan failed 62 years ago - CNNPolitics.com - 10 views

  •  
    The ethical issues and problems that a mass roundup of illegal immigrants would create chaos in America. I agree with Trump and the other candidates that it is a problem, but the solution is not to launch a nation wide man hunt and deport people to random places in Mexico.
  •  
    They tried this a long time ago and it was considered a shameful chapter in american history because they were mean to people when they did it didn't even try to make it a little easy on them.
  •  
    I think that a big change is coming in the United States. If Trump becomes president, there will no longer be peace in the place we call home. There will be so many people refusing to do what he says he wants to do. I personally feel that he doesn't have the right to say whether or not they are here. If it didn't work before, it won't work now. And him just trying it will cause conflict everywhere.

The Problem Is That Free College Isn't Free - 4 views

  •  
    Andrew P. Kelly is a resident scholar and the director of the Center on Higher Education Reform at the American Enterprise Institute. "Free public college" is a great political talking point, but it is flawed policy. First, free college isn't free, it simply shifts costs from students to taxpayers and caps tuition at zero.
