Oh, how I chuckle when Stephen gets amazingly politically incorrect about Native Americans. Stephen’s Indian monologue (How!) was cringtastically delicious. I also found the Gold dialogue and interviews with Ron Paul and David Leonhardt to be quite informative. It’s interesting to me the logic that Stephen brought verses the arguments that Ron Paul brought, and the comparison of all of that to Leonhardt’s fact-checking of all of it. I also loved the ending line about whether they would want to worship a cow of paper or gold. It made me think of “Kneel before your God, Babylon!”
When I listen to people like Geoffrey Canada, who are very well informed about what is truly going on in the school systems today, I fear for our future. I know so many people with college degrees who struggle, and it scares me to think that so many people are slipping through the educational system without the basic tools to be able to be successful in their future.
So does anyone want to give a try at what the question might be to tonight’s answer – 12 Dutchmen dangling from a hot air balloon? Leave it in the comments!
- Oh my God! That would be horrible. They might build burial grounds on top of our sacred malls!
- I’ve got a few choice words for our Indian Overlords: How. Me, Big Chief Hips Like Woman honored to be your humble servant. Waited many moons to join new empire. Me have great hair, please no scalpum. Me one of you. Share your values. Me use every part of animal, in that I eat Slim Jim. Heap big sodium nitrate. Me movum on. Now I know what killed them.
- Money’s so confusing, it’s just a piece of paper. Who knows how much this $20 bill is worth? Probably nothing once you scrape off the cocaine.
- [Glenn Beck: "I can take this gold coin and walk into Sacks Fifth Avenue and buy a couple of good suits."] Yes. Clearly he hasn’t yet, but he can.
- Georgia state representative Bobby Franklin recently introduced a bill that would require payments to or from the state of Georgia to be made exclusively in gold or silver coin, which may be difficult as most of Georgia’s gold reserves are tied up in Lil Jon’s teeth.
- Just be careful you don’t confuse your gold sack with your snuff sack or your actual sack, which may not be legal, but sure is tender.
- Dave, do you want some ice for that burn?
- I’ll leave the question to both of you – would you rather worship a calf made of paper or a calf made of gold?
- I’ll bite – why should I care about children?
- So many of our nation’s fetuses only read at the first trimester level.
