What questions would you like Trump to answer in the debate?



We know a little about Donald Trump's views on immigration but not much else.

Unfortunately, the upcoming debate will feature a lot of lightweights (Huckabee, Paul, Fiorina), a heavyweight lightweight (Christie), an activist from Telemundo (you know who), and a motorcycle riding rodeo circus clown (Walker), who will eat up a lot of unnecessary time. Furthermore it is likely that Trump will field a lot of questions about menstruation, bimbos, and whether he would let Donald Jr. (or perhaps Ivanka?) go on a blind date with Carly Fiorina.

But I think it is important to bring forward the questions that should be asked, so we at least have an eye out for what to focus on. Here, now, are the most important questions I think Donald Trump should be asked:

1) You have said you want to deport all illegals but allow the good ones to reapply. Is it your rough sense that the "good ones" are closer to a minority, roughly half, or a majority of all illegals currently here?

2) Will the "good ones" be forced to stay in their home country the entire time they are reapplying, or will they be allowed to return provisionally? You mentioned "expedited" return. If they are pushed to the back of the line, is the plan that they will wait, for years, in their home countries like legal immigrants?

3) Do you think Anthony Kennedy has given a good or unfavorable performance on the Supreme Court, and why? And do you really think your sister, who is a liberal jurist who authored an opinion in support of partial birth abortion, would be a great Supreme Court pick?

4) Can you name three agencies or cabinet departments you would cut? (For those Rick Perry fans who feel this is an unfair gotcha question, I feel for you. Not.)

5) You say you would "revise" the Iran deal. Could you agree to a deal that ever allows them to enrich uranium, allows them to continue developing ICBM's, and allows them to avoid surprise, immediate inspections by American inspectors?

6) In your 2011 book you state the top tax rate should be 15%. Do you still feel that way?

7) Should federal workers earn more than the average salary of Americans in the private sector? If not, do you plan to do anything about it?

8) Should the federal workforce be unionized? Why or why not?

9) Do you think the Endangered Species Act needs to be changed? If so, in what way?

10) Do you think we need more drilling on federal lands?

11) Should the internet be regulated?

12) Should public contributions to candidates be limited?

13) Should the government be able to record emails and phone calls of all American citizens?

14) Should men who claim they are women have special protection under the law? Should they be allowed to serve in the military?

15) Should Planned Parenthood receive federal funding?

16) Do you believe the Supreme Court has absolute, unchallengeable authority? If not, what do you believe the limits should be?

17) You went back and forth a bit on admitting Muslim refugees from the Middle East. You now say we shouldn't admit them in large numbers. Why do you think that?

18) Would you push for legislation to overturn birthright citizenship? If Congress is unwilling, do you believe birthright citizenship can be overturned by executive order, since it has no constitutional or legislative basis?

The idea behind these questions is to figure out not just what Trump thinks but more importantly why he thinks them. If he were to answer some of these questions, I think voters would have a higher comfort level with them. But if he gives his often stated answer to rare substantive questions: "I'll get the best people to work for me, and they will know the answers," that of course would be less reassuring.

All candidates should hire the best people, but before the first best person is hired, they should have their own worldview. The purpose of best people is not to provide a worldview, but to implement it.

Previously we speculated about the next politician to join Rick Perry in the political afterlife (what you and I call the private sector). Today we have a different question: by what date must the major candidates actually win a primary or caucus to prove they are viable, to avoid the political scrambling of their brains in their campaign wombs? (Note to Paul, Jindal, Huckabee, Rubio, Fiorina, Christie, Santorum, Gilmore, Pataki, and Graham supporters: this article won't interest you, it's only about candidates who have at least a slight possibility of becoming president, a greater than asteroid-crashing-into-Bruce Willis's-home possibility of success.)

For many conservatives, there is starting to be a common view that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the top choices. Jeb Bush is too salsa, Scott Walker is too Elmer Fudd, and Ben Carson's amnesty loving ways are too anathema for many conservatives. What does that leave us with?

NYT sounds cautionary note on self-decapitation, freezing of brain


Have you ever considered having your head cut off, your brain pumped with antifreeze, and then cryogenically frozen? If you have, you should first read this very important article the New York Times thought it important enough to write more than 7,000 words about and feature prominently on its front page. The story was about a young woman named Kim Suozzi, who, dying of brain cancer, decided that when she was near death that her head should be chopped off from her body and then frozen until science found a cure for her cancer. And, also, a cure for her lack of a body. And, also, a cure for the freezing damage too.

Trump is right; we can get rid of illegals in 2 years


Donald Trump was asked how long it will take to get rid of our illegal aliens. He was asked if it could be done in five to ten years. That's the answer most politicians give to any question, such as balancing the budget--it's a long enough time frame so they will be out of office before they are held responsible for not delivering on their promises.

There are several ways the state can do this:

I want them to move to my little town. I want my hometown to have the very best modern traditions from Damascus, Aleppo, and Raqqah brought to my doorstep. If I can't move to the Middle East, the next best thing is to bring the Middle East here and have it transplanted all around me.
