Cain: How about some Amazing Grace?

Oh this takes me back. Way back. Back in the first days of George W. when he had less gray and no less spunk, when he was asked what political figure had most influenced him. And his answer: Jesus Christ.

Oh the uproar! Oh the outrage! How dare he bring religion into politics. The media went crazy, like they often do. Looking forward to seeing them spin like a Tazmanian devil over this.

Three cheers for Inequality

Here's the word that always pulls us into a bog of self-pity woes, self-centered desires, and self- aggrandizing posture. One little word. Four letters.

It's a ridiculous argument - the call for fairness. Who's qualified to determine fairness? Who shall be its arbitrator? Its enforcer? Its judge? King? Goodbye democracy. Hello servitude.

Richard Epstein, law professor at New York University School of Law, explains the unfairness, if we can use that term, of pushing for monetary equality. Sound like a yawner? Believe it or not, it isn't. This video is eight minutes of fabulous pointers fired off like common-sense bullets that silence every whining socially conscious question from his PBS interviewer. Notice the man's looks after Epstein answers. He's frustrated, flabbergasted, and flopping around like a fish on dry land.

His beliefs have no merit or standing in reality. And so he goes for "don't you feel" questions? Epstein handles those, too.

Amazing. An exciting video from PBS. 

Do you truly want a better life for the low income? Then tell Occupy Wall Street to go home and promote capitalism. Freedom to make money makes our world better even when we're not the ones making it.

Equality is never justice. It's a rant for the greedy. The true greedy: The ones who want money they didn't earn for work they never performed that required time they never spent and suffering they refused to endure.
Now that's unfair.

Trailer: Act of Valor

I. Am. All. Over. This.

Also, I want to know what song that is in the end. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
