Stupid In America
I meant to mention it here earlier on but forgot. In fact, I forgot to watch the show myself. John Stossel's Stupid in America, another one of his hard hitting exposes, was on the other night on ABC. SIA is a well deserved slam at the Education- Industrial Complex, specifically, government run schools. I've heard rave reviews from the Right on the show and I understand the Left is naturally upset over it.
If you missed it, there's still a way to see it online. Of course, you could go to the ABC web site and buy the DVD, but that can be pricey. Chuck Muth, the guy who gave me the heads up on how to see it for free (but is it legal?), said the DVD was $29.95 on Wednesday when he ordered his. The next day it was going for $89.95. Looks like quite a demand for that show. But not to worry, you can watch it online via Realplayer by going here. Sounds like a must see show, like so much of Stossel's stuff. I'll definitely watch it if I can find the spare time.
I'll give Chuck Muth a plug here as well. Muth is an old GOP operative but a fairly libertarian leaning one. I take exception to his occasional Neil Boortz style War Party rants but he often calls it the way it is and is willing to take his fellow Republicans to task when they go astray from their supposed small government principles. He has a e-newsletter he sends out just about five days a week, but not always. I enjoy getting it. If you'd like to subscribe, sign up at Citizen Outreach.
