CS Commentary: This video shows how gay rights has become one of the dividing issues of our time and how the left will allow no debate, discussion or argument. It also displays what happens when you take God out of the debate – you are left without argument or authority, as Nigel is here.

Must Watch: Candace Owens Completely Demolishes Yet Another Democrat And His Inane Arguments (video, right below), The Ingraham Angle, Fox News

CS Commentary: ‘Inane’ means ‘silly, stupid, foolish,’ for anyone who thinks that might be a spelling mistake. The only thing wrong with this debate is that guests like this Democrat should not be allowed a national platform for their vacuous opinions, misinterpretation of the facts, and constant ad hominem responses in the face of convincing facts and logic. 24-hour news channels – like Fox News – have lowered the level of the debate in America by making celebrities out of these irrational, off-point pundits (to put it nicely). Yes, we have the right to free speech – no, that doesn’t mean that every foolish opinion is given a national platform. For Owens complete opening statement in the Congressional hearing, see below.

Why US Debt Is China’s Nuclear Option In The Trade War, CNBC

CS Commentary: CNBC goes wrong in at least a couple of areas in this video. China is not the largest holder of US debt – they are the largest ‘foreign’ holder of US debt, a significant distinction. Second, as Eswar Prassad explains in ‘The Dollar Trap,’ US debt may actually be a good thing, particularly as it relates to China since there is no other viable option for the Chinese to safely earn money that needs to be invested somewhere. For more on this see our article, Evaluating the Arguments For The Dollar’s Demise.

Capitalism vs. Socialism: And The Winner Is…, Steve Forbes, Fox Business

CS Commentary: Fox Business did a survey of college students recently and almost none could define capitalism or socialism, though most chose the later over the former as the ideal system for society. We would have defined capitalism as: A mercantilist society where the price of goods is determined by supply and demand with minimal government interference. Here is the dictionary definition of the three primary terms:

cap·i·tal·ism: an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
“an era of free-market capitalism” · “private ownership is a key feature of capitalism”

so·cial·ism: a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

mer·can·til·ism: belief in the benefits of profitable trading; commercialism.
historical: the economic theory that trade generates wealth and is stimulated by the accumulation of profitable balances, which a government should encourage by means of protectionism.
