Andrew Sullivan’s Take On Conservatism And Whether It Can Be Saved

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Well, open today’s Pile of Prep and you will find a link and a quote to a blog post written by Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan writes at The Dish, which is a website that he -- he used to write for The Atlantic. He went out on his own. He’s one of these guys that’s trying to be an independent and not have to work for the man, as it were. He has a brief piece titled “Can American Conservatism Be Saved?” In the piece we find some, I think, worthy discussion. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Affirmative Action To Prevent Discrimination Actually Encourages Discrimination

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Did white people choose to be white? So you’re going to carve out a special disfavor because you assert that there is this thing called an affirmative action program because you’re just born and destined and get admitted into any college that you want simply by virtue of the color of your skin? I must have missed out on that one, too. I was only invited, and I wasn’t even invited. I only applied to go to a junior college, and I only went for one semester.

Catholic University Presidents Should Listen To John F. Kennedy And Keep Religion Out Of Politics

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is one of the great speeches ever recorded. This is how Kennedy dealt with this. Not only do I think he gets it right, he quotes James Madison, he knows the story about how the Baptists were persecuted in the State of Virginia back in the 1780s that caused Madison and Jefferson to write the Virginia Statute on Religious Freedom. It’s just a great speech. Here’s how Kennedy might have answered those Catholic presidents of those Catholic universities. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Don’t “Fix” The Department Of Homeland Security, Abolish It!

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Can you imagine living in 2013 and actually living to see the day that there is a tarpaulin thrown over the ash heap remains of a former ABC federal agency? Oh, the joy of seeing that, my friends. Oh, the bliss of seeing that. I can’t afford it, but I’m gonna go out and buy me a couple bottles of White Star champagne to celebrate and maybe some 16-year-old Lagavulin Scotch if I can get my hands on it.

Student Loans Belong In The Market, Not The Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Once something becomes law, even if the Republican Party opposed it, they will ultimately find a way to make it their own, and it will then become a part of conservatism. Sure enough, student loans have now become part of a conservative policy in the House of Representin’, I guess. Members of the GOP are demanding that action be taken immediately to spare those students out there the unbelievable horror and fate of their interest rates, on the free money that was granted to them by the federal government, doubling.

Americans Lack Imagination For Things Like iPad Schools And Secession

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I just think people should explore the possibilities, should not be wed to this jingoistic nationalism that we all must be wed to, and ought to think about what’s best for us and our children in your region, where it is you live, where it is that your community is. If it’s not membership in this union that spies on you and taxes you and harasses you and undermines your moral and cultural traditions, then leave it. What exactly is the hang-up about leaving it?

Will The Next Bailout Be The Trillion-Dollar Student Loan Debt?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Don’t forget, folks, the student loan debt is the largest debt owed on Earth. The only thing that trumps the outstanding student loan debt in the United States is the federal budget deficit or the national deficit. That is the only debt that exceeds student loans. There are over $1 trillion -- you can hear Dr. Evil saying it now in an Austin Powers movie. It’s almost as though some maniacal plot has been executed against the young people of these United States. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Would Vince Lombardi Have Thrown Objects At His Players?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Usually Andrew solicits my opinion; I’m going to solicit his opinion. I thought that one of the guys that wrote about “Just how angry do we need to get about a coach with anger issues,” I thought one of the writers in this -- there was a forum that The Atlantic held and they talked about this.

The Student Loan Bubble Is Not What Jefferson Had In Mind

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The largest bubble right now, the bubble that is about to burst and is bursting right now is the student loan bubble. There are almost $1 trillion worth of outstanding student loans right now. All that money was guaranteed by you and me, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer, and was transferred into where? It came from the federal government and transferred into the coffers of the same universities we’re talking about. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The NCAA and College Athletics Is Big Business

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – LeBron never went to college. I would also ask the question: Who benefits by forcing some of these young people to go to college? If you listen to this show, you know an awful lot about what is not taught at universities, which is classical liberal education, most universities anyway. What is the benefit from sending them to the school to start with? If they’re professing that they want to pursue a career in football, baseball, basketball, whatever the case may be, then let them pursue it. The NCAA ought to be a facilitator of this.

University Is Unnecessary For The Majority

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - What is the purpose of university? I’m all for higher education that is directed towards occupation. Does that necessarily mean you have to go to a place and get a piece of paper, or do you go to a place where you can actually start learning and working in the craft and in the business?

Student Loans – Bad Economic Policy But Big Business

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Transcript - Big business loves big government. Big education is big business. Now you have the companies going: Don’t worry, dude, you just leave us alone and write these regulations that we want and we will make it a policy that someone has got to be going to one of your big education universities in order to become an intern for us. We’ll lock them out. We will slam the door shut. Check out today's transcript for the rest...
