155. Struggles

Donald Trump and his army are not too happy about Colorado. Mona and Jay are not too happy about Trump and his army. They discuss.

They also discuss Ted Cruz, about whom they have sharp disagreements. And Bill Clinton, about whom they are in harmony. And Paul Ryan (ditto).

Mona analyzes the folly of government intervention in private compensation. Jay tells a couple of tales from Guatemala. They both talk about winning the war against Islamofascism, another long, twilight struggle, whether we want one – which we don’t – or not.

Music from this week’s episode: “La Campanella” (“The Little Bell”), from Liszt’s “Paganini Etudes,” S. 141, played by Evgeny Kissin.
