Eisenhower had been appalled at Truman’s unpreparedness for office, and rightly blamed F.D.R. His model of training a Vice-President endures.

The biggest income redistribution is going to the richest at the moment. Couple of ways that happens, your hard work goes to their pockets as your income fails to keep up. Then they get big tax breaks for capital gains, inheritance, and corporate welfare.

Of course, no one looks at that and calls it income redistribution, but it is every bit as much as welfare and food stamps.

“The memorial had turned into a sort of public square.”
The authorities kept dismantling it, and so the monument to the slain pro-democracy politician Boris Nemtsov was being reconstituted for the fourth time.

these people are prostitutes period.

 the likelihood of a Democrat being elected in this cycle is, by historical standards, very very small. take a look at wikipedia if your gut reaction is otherwise. with the exception of  an assassination and an impeachment, the record of flipping from one party to the other is distinctive.
 
if this is all you have done in your lifetime you realize that. then on one hand, you have been doing this all of your  life and this is your life then,

 you continue to do it.

 and on the other hand, if this is all you have done in your lifetime and you realize that you can, in all probability, fund your entire lifestyle (spouse/child/etc.) at something approaching a $1,000,000,000 or more in the next few years. and you've got fcuk all else to do with your time then, why not? 

truth is, the presidential election cycle has become a significant part of the u.s. economy because it brings out (i.e. creates economic activity (i.e. spending)) that would not otherwise occur. and this is a good thing for amerika.

personally, i have money on jeb already. and am extremely happy to know that the cruz is going to siphon something approaching a billion out of the pockets of many idiots that would otherwise sit on it. so in the vernacular....it's all good.
