Beware of the man who won’t be bothered with details.
     —   William Feather
[The Presidential candidate who thinks national health insurance is easy.  …And then “discovers” it isn’t.  “Who knew?”  The candidate who claims to be smarter than the generals and has his own plan to defeat ISIS quickly.  …And then six months into his term does exactly what “the generals” recommend – escalate involvement and continue the war.  The candidate who says he can act Presidential any time he wants to and who thinks “acting” Presidential is boring.   …And then demeans the Office by being a buffoon.  Welcome to reality politics USA style.  —  KMAB]

Conservatism is measured and reliable.  Conservative foreign policy is where you embrace your allies and recognize your enemies.  That’s a long way from where we are today.  We’ve adopted a populist attitude that is a sugar high.

Science has sometimes been said to be opposed to faith, and inconsistent with it.  But all science, in fact, rests on a basis of faith, for it assumes the permanence and uniformity of natural laws – a thing which can never be demonstrated.
