I believe Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz to be “natural born Citizens” and eligible to be President.  Here’s why. 1. Summary There are few eligibility requirements to be President.  You don’t have to be smart, wise, experienced, honest, educated, or a particular gender or race. Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution provides, in pertinent…

Whatever happened to the skilled labor force? It went to college, and that’s not an entirely good thing: When everybody’s special, nobody is. Getting everyone into college means you have to dumb down the curriculum until it is nothing but meaningless drivel that has no application in the real world… Forcing everyone to…
