Can anything salvage Scott Walker's campaign at this point?


Scott Walker is coming out with a new initiative! He wants to make it illegal for federal workers to unionize. It's a good proposal, because union dues are often used for political purposes. In effect taxpayer money is used to promote candidates who vote to give more taxpayer money to the big public sector unions. Walker's proposal would end that. And to his credit, he is the only candidate who had brought forth this idea, so far.

However, his proposal, while bold, hardly comes in a policy area that is exactly central in most voters minds. Sure, conservatives would love to de-unionize the federal government, but that is not exactly on their top list of priorities. It almost looks like Walker is still in the mindset of campaigning for state office, where this kind of issue has more prominence. Walker, who is at 2% in some national polls, is trying to resuscitate his flailing campaign with attention grabbing proposals. But he picked a rather obscure topic to focus on.
The question is, at this point is there anything Walker can do to revive his campaign? He's become such a parody of himself, that when asked a simple policy question, like on birthright citizenship, he becomes like Elmer Fudd, ruminating, "Which way should I go, which way should I go?", with multiple positions within the space of days.
I think if he has any chance, he has to come out with a bold proposal for a subject Americans care about. Here are four ideas:

1) He could pledge that if Iran doesn't agree to a fully verifiable halt in its nuclear activities, that he will use military force to destroy their reactors and ICBM's.

2) He could support a flat tax, or better yet, the elimination of the income tax and replacement with a national sales tax.

3) He could top Trump on immigration, promising to deport all illegal and not let any return, not even the "good ones", since, as all of them have broken the law, there are really no "good ones".

4) He could support the elimination of several cabinet agencies like Energy, Labor, Education, and Veteran's Affairs (replacing the lattermost with vouchers so veterans could buy private insurance).

Any of these moves, if proposed and not quickly rescinded or otherwise modified, might be able to put Walker back in the race. Or maybe not. Perhaps the trust factor for him as run down so far that nothing could help him.
What do you think?

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.

CA Legislature passes bill permitting California to commit suicide


California passed a bill yesterday permitting the state of California to commit legislator-assisted suicide. That means if the State of California feels that its "quality of life" is diminished, or if it has a short time to live, or it is merely unhappy or has a mild stomach upset, then it can act to end its existence. There are several ways the state can do this:
