|I wasn't thinking of Sheyla Hershey, who has the world's largest breasts, when I wrote the headline, but a picture of her boobs is more interesting than one of O'Reilly the boob.|
America is a dumbed-down country. It is not just that no one reads books. It is also that millions obtain information from ignorant opportunists like O'Reilly and Hannity. No wonder Republicans vote for goofballs like Rick Sanitarium and Speaker Newt Moonbeam.
One cannot express ideas coherently in a television program. This explains Americans' voting choices. They do not vote coherently; indeed, they vote against their own interests by insisting on candidates who support the Federal Reserve Bank and failed government programs. There is no debate permitted on the television networks and talk radio shows because they are run by the Council on Foreign Relations-linked economic interests who benefit, at public expense, from bailouts and paper money subsidies.
If you haven't read a book in a year, here are four that might start your thinking:
James Perloff, Shadows of Power
Murray Rothbard, What Has Government Done to Our Money?
F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson
