The Pope is pressing for governments to take care of the poor — one of his main interests.

It is the difference between voluntary charity and government forced redistribution. Jesus told HIS followers to help the poor, He did NOT order His followers to get the Roman government to help the poor!

The president has pressed for a “Free” Community College education.

There is something to be said for valuing that which you earn, or pay for.

I had 6,000 classroom hours teaching various computer science courses at National University to students (average age 32) and while, at the time, were paying $600 a month for my undergraduate courses and $750 a month for my graduate courses.

Here were adults, primarily holding down full-time day jobs, and handling their families while paying the equivalent monthly dues to lease a Jaguar Convertible! A high “Opportunity Cost.”

They appreciated their education because it was not free!

I have absolutely no idea if being Gay is “Nature or Nurture” but my experience (7 years in all-male military schools and 26 years in the all-male Navy) leads me to believe that MOST Gays are Gay by nature, but there are some by nurture — and there are those in all male societies (military and prison) who perform homosexual acts but are not themselves homosexual.

Sex is a highly individual entity. Having been immersed in all-male societies, I still did not KNOW any homosexuals, although I did know that individuals in my organizations were transferred or discharged because of homosexual acts. I was the Senior Officer of a Courts Martial for two admitted Lesbians, and I convinced the Board that they should be found Not Guilty because there was zero evidence that they performed any acts they were accused of on government time or government property.

My conclusion is that Homosexuals are not as prevalent as their voices and influence would indicate.

The Pope has gone one bridge too far in his call for no Freedom of Speech on the subject of Religion.. He was born and raised in nations and a religious society that did not have the protections of the U.S. Constitution and he does not comprehend or treasure Free Speech.
