MILTON FRIEDMAN SCHOOLS PHIL DONAHUE - 1979
THE FREEDOM POST ^ | July 31, 2012

Posted on 07/31/2012 4:57:09 PM PDT by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny

Today, July 31, 2012, would have been the great free-market economist Milton Friedman's 100th birthday. Below, is a series of interviews Friedman had on the Phil Donahue Show in 1979. Friedman repeatedly, in his customary polite demeanor, makes Donahue look like the Socialist fool that he is. I do have to credit Donahue, however, for allowing Friedman on his program to obliterate him. He's a little more tolerant than today's lefties in media.

Watching these videos provides more plain, unadulterated, common-sense economic wisdom than most American universities today would provide over a four-year degree. Happy 100th Milton Friedman!...

Such brilliance and Common Sense!!! Do you notice how you were allowed to discuss topics even with the leftish Donahue. Donahue had to be tolerant of other ideas, then-—because people were more intelligent although the “feel good then it is good” generation were marching through all the institutions at that time. They were still undercover—because the majority of God-Fearing people wouldn’t of allowed them control if they knew the Truth. The media covered up the infiltration.

Now such pathetic minds are created by the public education system, most people believe the name-calling the leftists always do and all debate is controlled and ended if it goes counter of the allowed PC agenda.

Only Leftist opinions are allowed in the marketplace and in schools now. Mao’s PC methods are in force, now. God and Truth no longer are allowed-—as Chick Fil A proves and the Cake makers who are sickened by acts of sodomy and as teachers are forced to take “Pride” is dysfunctional selfish acts and teach young children that sodomy is “good” and “normal”. We are destroying Logic, Reason and Biological Truth in our children and replacing it with Marxist ideology of Dependency, Collectivism, and irrational Godlessness.

Non-Sowell ping but a ping to Milton Friedman.

I’ve only watched the first two videos and they’re excellent.

Thanks for the ping, Huntress.

Heard that today on Rush while driving. Milton Friedman was one exceptional human being.

Good assessment; I wish you weren’t right but you’re pretty dead-on.

Oh, how I wish I wasn’t right, also. But all my research of the last 10 years is proving true.

Thanks for the ping.

The Donahue interviews with Ayn Rand are wonderful too. He was a “fair” lefty. That’s an oxymoron now.
