"Let's let college students deduct the entire cost of their educations over their working careers. Let's make college tuition entirely deductible," Rand Paul said Friday.

Nate Silver, FiveThirtyEight: It's correct to say that few Americans identify as libertarian. Only 11 percent said the term "libertarian" describes them well, according to a 2014 Pew Research poll. Nor do very many Americans self-identify as socially liberal but economically conservative. Just 3 percent did so in a 2012 Gallup poll, in fact. Even fewer Americans -- just 1 percent -- fall into the category Krugman calls "hardhats," that is, people who are socially conservative but economically liberal. But how people label themselves is one thing. Americans sometimes leave a different impression when polled about specific issues. Often, their views are reasonably heterodox and not well represented by a one-dimensional political spectrum. read more

JOHN BRESNAHAN and LAUREN FRENCH, Politico: Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration reportedly had "sex parties" with prostitutes hired by drug cartels in Colombia, according to a new inspector general report released by the Justice Department on Thursday.
In addition, Colombian police officers allegedly provided "protection for the DEA agents' weapons and property during the parties," the report states. Ten DEA agents later admitted attending the parties, and some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days

Julie Borowski, Freedom Works: Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) have introduced the Surveillance State Repeal Act that would end the NSA's unconstitutional domestic spying. I can say without hesitation: this bill is the real deal. "The Patriot Act contains many provisions that violate the Fourth Amendment and have led to a dramatic expansion of our domestic surveillance state," said Rep. Massie. "Our Founding Fathers fought and died to stop the kind of warrantless spying and searches that the Patriot Act and the FISA Amendments Act authorize. It is long past time to repeal the Patriot Act and reassert the constitutional rights of all Americans. I am proud to co-sponsor Congressman Pocan's bill and look forward to working with him on this issue."

Robert Reich, World Economic Forum: It's now possible to sell a new product to hundreds of millions of people without needing many, if any, workers to produce or distribute it. ... New technologies aren't just labor-replacing. They're also knowledge-replacing. The combination of advanced sensors, voice recognition, artificial intelligence, big data, text-mining, and pattern-recognition algorithms, is generating smart robots capable of quickly learning human actions, and even learning from one another. If you think being a "professional" makes your job safe, think again. The two sectors of the economy harboring the most professionals -- health care and education – are under increasing pressure to cut costs. And expert machines are poised to take over. ... We need a new economic model. The economic model that dominated most of the twentieth century was mass production by the many, for mass consumption by the many. read more

Fully agree.

Take a look at the list of terrorist events in 2015 and tell me if you see a pattern among the perps.

Sure, 2015. And in 1988: en.wikipedia.org the majority were associated with Christianity.

And in 1978: en.wikipedia.org ALL of the terrorist events were associated with Islam. So you can see there's an ebb and flow to terrorism and who's most likely to wield it. Now as it relates to Islam, was there a change to Islam that explains the significant increase in terrorism? Or was it a change in the number of individuals perceiving Islam in an extremist way? Because from what I understand, the Quran is the same as it was in 1978.
