I can tell Tom is not real familiar with Rush nor Friedman
You will never see Rush go Alinsky someone. Sandra Fluke truly was a pair of panties short of being a lady.
And if you told the whole story on Friedman...you get Alinsky-ed by his supporters
Liberals are divided up into roughly three groups:
The first third are the ones we all know and the author thinks we can reach. The problem is, of that third, a portion of them are not capable of thinking through an argument, no matter How persuasively or artfully constructed. They just aren’t capable. Another’s portion of that third simply is unable to allow logical argument to override their emotion. The last segment of that third are people Who are so easily swayed that as soon as they leave your presence and watch tv or speak to another liberal they will be un-convinced.
The next third that liberals are divided into Is composed of people who have bought the whole liberal argument hook line and sinker. They are the ones with spittle on their lips and glassy eyes screaming slogans like “no blood for oil” and such. They are the real honest-to-goodness “useful idiots”. They’re the ones who do all the dirty work for the last third of liberals.
The last third of liberals is composed of people like Barack Obama and Bill Ayers just as examples. These are the liberals who don’t buy into the whole thing, but understand completely that liberalism is about power over others. It’s about domination.
Bottom line, we are at a divide in this country, and the news media and large portions of the government are determined to keep the divide in place.
Arguing with liberals is like arguing with pigs.
In the Lincoln-Douglas debates, Lincoln wasn't trying to persuade Douglas - he was trying to defeat the Democrats. Would it be nice if the defeat was so convincing that the opponents gave up their beliefs and came to your side? Sure. But you don't get that by being nice and meeting them half way.
I’d submit more Rush and more Milton would be fine. They are not in the same arena. Rush is an entertainer and Milton was an economic theorist.
I find Rush entertaining though I listen to him seldom now, as I have already read most of what he covers on the net before his show comes on.
Milton is fascinating to read, but of course we are limited there since he passed away some time ago.
Wow, if only the author had been around in the 1930s. He could have persuaded Hitler that the peaceful approach was the best way to solve problems. The allies powers could have further disarmed to show Hitler that they were not a threat. If only he had been around with this wisdom.
I would say more Freidman, and MORE Limbaugh. It is impossible to exagerate the positive influnce Limbaugh has been in this country.
Should we mention that Friedman claimed that our entire monetary policy could be determined by one man sitting at a desk for one day out of the month?
How is that basing monetary policy on market forces?
It is a form of dictation. And having that power spread out over 12 branches of the Fed makes it no less dictatorial and socialist.
As I’ve said many times, I really like and appreciate Friedman’s books and lectures on free-market economics, but his Monetarism (which is a darling of the Keynesians) and backs a central bank, is as anti-thetical to free-market principles as you can get.
I will take Limbaugh over Friedman any day.
I did find out how to shut up a leftist. I said that we currently borrow $.40 out of every dollar the government spends. I asked “How do you suppose that’s going to end?”
DEFUND socialists and their collectives. DISMANTLE them when necessary. DESTROY them when necessary. The time for talking is ovah.
live - free - republic
Rush Limbaugh continues to inform, motivate, and inspire on a daily basis after 25 years in his work. He is the one “must listen to” educator on the radio.
You don’t listen to Rush, do you? You seem to know only his caricature.
This is true, and the belief that human activity is causing Global Warming is one of the important tenets of that faith.
