Milton Friedman Sets Liberal Straight On “Too Many Millionaires”

by lewwaters

From a 1979 Donahue Show, economist Milton Friedman sets a liberal woman straight on the same argument fronted today by the Occupy Anything But a Bar of Soap crowd envious of other peoples success.

Isn’t odd to see the same arguments and desperation people had under Jimmy Carter coming back up under Barack Obama?

Ronald Reagan led us out of the last mess. Who is there to do it today?

Teacher Reprimands Students For ‘Bless You’

by lewwaters

It is objectionable that a teacher would even think it a disciplinary matter for a student to say “bless you.” That is not teaching, it is imparting personal prejudices on young students.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Just another example of the intolerance of the “oh so tolerant” always demeaning others.

UPDATE: School Superintendent John Niederkorn spoke on the incident saying the teacher, Steve Cuckovich “thought the students were sneezing in dramatic fashion with the intent of disrupting class”

Niederkorn said, “It was brought to the District’s attention a few days ago that students were disciplined for being disruptive in class. The teacher believed that students were dramatically sneezing and responding in repetitive fashion “Bless You”. One of the concerns is the social convention of saying “Gesundheit”, “God Bless You”, or “Bless You” after someone sneezes. Of question is whether a series of these repeated remarks by several students constitutes freedom of speech or a classroom disruption and merits student discipline. Vacaville Unified’s Administration is continuing its investigation of this reported classroom disruption. We are reviewing the impact of this disruption and the student grading policy. Certainly a blessing by one individual to another after a sneeze is a welcomed acknowledgement of a social norm. Hopefully it is not abused as a disruption of classroom instructional activities.”

CYA anybody?
