And Barry on the Military.

"The Pentagon as Trustworthy. Let's not even go back to Vietnam; we'll confine our examples just to our current wars, instead. So:

Jessica Lynch. Pat Tillman. The 2007 helicopter attack on Iraqi civilians. The Khataba coverup.

Have you ever known someone who lied even about small things? You immediately knew that person wasn't trustworthy, didn't you? And you didn't trust him thereafter, right? So what's different about the military?"

"Not only is the amount that prices rise an inflation tax, but also the amount that prices didn't fall is also included in the inflation tax. Due to improvements in productivity, more goods are created so prices should be falling. On the gold standard, prices fell and the economy boomed." -- thesilverjournal

Fav not only for treatment of the subject, but also explaining how many economic metrics like inflation adjustment and average wage can lead you to the wrong conclusion.

What is?  I don't see an additional block of text that is in quotes, or a video.

Posted on an old friend's facebook page. I wouldn't exactly say he knows any better, but still...

EDIT: Crap! Meant to post this in fail quotes. How do I move posts again?

That's okay. I'll use it to segue into a fav quote about documentaries.


"When I make a film, I never want the film to become a vehicle of social propaganda. If I wanted to do that, I'd make documentaries."
Norman Jewison
