    A Freedom of Speech Test

    Some of you may not like what I have to say. But I have a right to say it. Also, this is how I would like things to go. If you think I am wrong about a particular point that I make, tell me what it is and why you think it is wrong. I will tell you why it isn't wrong. And so on. To keep...

    Global trade and the state of the union speech.

    I’m a proponent of a policy based upon Warren Buffett’s unilateral Import Certificates concept. His market, (not government) driven concept would significantly reduce USA’s trade deficit of global goods, be of no net expense to our federal budget, act as a subsidy of our exports and would...

    Guns, Speech and Group Punishment

    Has anyone ever seen the Westboro Baptist Church at soldiers’ funerals? They hold up signs that say “God Hates Fags” and taunt the mourners and defile the memory of the hero. . What if President Obama said “The vile mutterings of this despicable group will no longer be tolerated. They sting our...

    Ron Paul's farewell speech to Congress

    I might not agree with everything the guy says, but he has had a tremendous effect on my worldview, especially when I first started getting into politics (some of the older members like David surely remember that): q03cWio-zjk

    George Soros Festival of Economics Speech

    This speech has been going around the business and economics community a lot since legendary investor George Soros gave it a few days ago. It is a great speech and one in which he brings up a lot of interesting points. Definitely worth the read even if you are not into economics- it has a...

    The ear man's "state of the union" speech

    Did you hear it? His re-election strategy is clear - class warfare demogogy. Unfortunately, history shows this frequently has worked. Eg, Hitler during the Weimar Republic and the depression: all you Germans are poor because the rich jewish bankers ripped you off. The anti-rich...

    Obama's "biigggg" (whoopee) speech to congress

    First, once again, Boehner is acting RINOish - he allows obama to "call" a joint session of congress, to make a political speech - what was he thinking? To add insult to injury, obama then asks congress to stop the "circus" about the economy. They let him speak on a very shakey pretext, and he...

    State of the Union (and Republican response)

    Obama just presented the State of the Union, emphasizing the number one issue on everyone's mind: the economy. He talked about increasing exports, freezing spending, and improving America's competitiveness. Rep. Paul Ryan made the Republican response in which he heavily stressed debt...

    Obamas speech to schools

    What do you all think about Obamas speech directed at children in which he encourages them to work and study hard as well as submit letters? Personally, I think it's a bad idea to ask school disctricts to air it. They may as well as just make it another regular address on TV and let them see...

    Obama's Nuclear Speech

    What do you think of Obama's Nuclear Speech in Prague? I was worried by it. I felt that possibly there was too much detail in it that should have been worked through in the United States as a national policy first. Right down to the hosting of a Nuclear Summit. Surely that is news that should be...
