  1. I didn’t see Teller!
    His future’s not so bright either if Futurama can be trusted.

    Anyway, Glenn Beck is definitely highly animated personality.
    This conversation is fairly relevant because of Obamas planned forced “voluntering” programs.

    I’ve been enjoying watching Glenn Beck do interviews with Yaron Brook, the president of the Ayn Rand Institute.
    Yaron wrote a couple of articles featured in Beck’s magazine.
    Here’s one of the interviews: http://www.foxnews.com/video2/video08.html?maven_referralObject=4032511&maven_referralPlaylistId=&sRevUrl=http://www.foxnews.com/glennbeck/index.html

    I also enjoyed Terje’s posting of Glenn Beck’s video a few weeks back “money printing madness”.

    Let’s hope Beck makes a postivie impact on the US and the rest of the world. He’s definitely entertaining at least.

  2. Perhaps – but most people are not gun people or dope people. And a lot of people hate guns and dope.

  3. Thanks for the link, Tim… though for a guy with a lisp, Brook likes to say “systemic risk” an awful lot.

  4. The gun/dope coalition reference was to Robert Anton Wilson (The Illuminatus! trilogy). He started a guns and dope party a few years back with just that idea in mind. They had some fantastic ideas too.

    Allowing the people (via the web) to vote on where their tax money went and how much they spent on it.

    They also planned, I believe, to randomly sack 10% of congress and replace them with Ostriches. Something to do with the natural grace or Ostriches restoring dignity to that house.

  5. An archive of the Guns and Dope party website is here: http://www.maybelogic.com/gunsanddopeparty/

    I love this:
    GUNS AND DOPE PARTY POSITION PAPER #23

    Little Tony was sitting on a park bench munching
    on one candy bar after another.
    After the 6th candy bar, a man on the bench across from him said,
    “Son, you know eating all that candy isn’t good for you.
    It will give you acne, rot your teeth, and make you fat.”

    Little Tony replied, “My grandfather lived to be 107 years old.”

    The man asked, “Did your grandfather eat 6 candy bars at a time?”

    Little Tony answered, “No, he minded his own f*cking business.”
