Here are a few topics on which the governor has deemed his arguments inarguable:

A tax-free business plan for certain start-ups; school choice; seat belts; advances in women- and minority-owned businesses; a new policy on college-campus sexual assaults; "the epidemic of sexual violence in this country"; new ethics laws; the results of global warming; the highly charged dialogue between the New York Police Department and protesters; a "women's agenda" of legislation including an abortion plank; the impact of financial ratings agencies, and the notion "he's got this state on the right track."
