Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read (even if, on occasion, I do not agree with the author).

Jobs solution

A Wisconsin program alleviates poverty and unemployment without government dollars—and with the help of a U.S. senator

An Open Letter to Michelle Obama

As a victim of sexual assault, I appreciate your words about the seriousness of the issue.

If this were a speech in the Rose Garden or at a White House press conference, I would probably be writing a different letter right now. Instead you used this moment and this speech to empower Hillary Clinton and so missed the opportunity to have a real conversation about assault.

The low art of Trump-bashing

If Hillary Clinton becomes the 45th U.S. president, the 2016 election will be remembered as one in which much of the mainstream media all but admitted aligning itself with the Democratic Party. Having said that, there are ample reasons for Americans — even those who don’t believe the Fourth Estate should take sides the way it has — to vote against Donald Trump.

Just off the top of my head, here are 10.

Trumped-Up Outrage

The Left condemns the GOP candidate even as it celebrates crudity and sexual exhibitionism throughout the culture.

What Candidates Won’t Say

Clinton promises more than $1 trillion in new “investments,” free day care, maternity leave, an expansion of Obamacare, more funding for veterans, new solar subsidies, new bridges and tunnels and “college, tuition free!”

Trump is as bad, promising tax cuts and new spending on the military, infrastructure and that giant wall. Other than promising that Mexico will pay (it won’t), he never says where he’ll get the funds.

Keep politics out of football

If the NFL wants to prevent viewers from leaving en masse, they need to figure out a way to remain apolitical.
