Sticks and stones may break bones, but words do more damage than most people can imagine. Especially name-calling. ‘You’re dangerous!’ ‘Deceived.’ ‘A false prophet.’ ‘A compromiser!’ Charges like these by young-earth leaders, both spoken and implied, are intended to discredit, maim, and crush old-earth advocates, including me.

It is probably the case that some regulation of financing will make crises less likely, and I would say higher capital requirements are an almost fail-safe way to make banks safer. But there are a lot of other things that may not be doing that, and so we need to be careful about sort of, like, rushing to one conclusion or another.

Kids who grow up in radically different environments are always going to have different comfort levels with regard to a topic. If you don’t live near a train track, it’s hard to squash a penny that way, and if you live in an apartment in New York City, it may be difficult to get to drive a car.

We have to have a conversation about whether Obama’s plan to increase spending to occupy Afghanistan helps make America a safer country, or not. I think at some point, we may decide that we don’t have to have that size military and cost footprint in the country. You look at what you want to accomplish, how many soldiers you need.
