But I Thought Al GORE Invented the Internet . . .



I’ve caught a bit of heat for my posted reaction to Mr. Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remark.


Here’s a nice analysis of the matter from the prominent Anglo-American political commentator John O’Sullivan with which I agree.


And I continue to think that Mr. Obama’s derisive references in Roanoke, just prefatory to the Four Words themselves, to people who’ve created businesses and been successful are revealing of his real attitude toward market capitalism.



Knowing, willing, and doing
"Not My Will, But Thine, Be Done"
Has a court just ruled it "patently offensive" to express an anti-abortion viewpoint?
Atheists just happen to disbelieve in one more god than I do?

    Anyone that agrees with Obama’s comment can not be considered coherent on economic subjects. There is far too much evidence against Obama’s statement to give serious thought to it at all. I recommend everyone have a look at http://www.mises.org as well as an outstanding series on YouTube by Milton Friedman called Free To Choose. Keep up the libertarian theme, Dr. Peterson. I always say “If the Founders had it so right, why do we think so much needs changing?”

    Why blog what amounts to little more than a tweet or a facebook status update?
