Milton Friedman shows why he is unsurpassed in modern times in defending liberty. He cheerfully decapitates liberal ideas about government-controlled economy, over a wide range of examples.

Among points discussed: Should the people in this company bail out failed companies? Should the government regulate things like car emissions? What’s the best way to do it? “What bothers you about Ralph Nader?” “I think he’s wrong.”

      Thanks, Red. Totally classic tweet! I used to think Twitter was dumb, but I started following my tweety friend Angelaisms, which got me interested in Twitchy, which is now on my toolbar.

      • At first I didn’t understand the big deal about Twitchy, but now I think it’s genius.

        And speaking of Angelaisms, I was proud of eldest son yesterday when he came back from ThesCon (Theater Conference in Denver) and told me that he and his conservative gal friend protested an honor given to the anti-Mormon play “Book of Mormon.” Neither one of them is Mormon, but, being conservative, they understand that mocking people who stand up for their religious principles is not cool.
