I’m not a podcast enthusiast–in no small part because some previous brushes with iPods (and that [CofC violation][CofC violation][CofC violation] piece of [CofC violation] computer virus called iTunes) have permanently soured me on any audio app from Apple. But all the talk about, well, talk makes me curious. I’d like to try a podcast or three, […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Milton Friedman at 100

 

On the centennial of Milton Friedman’s birth, I offer one statement and one story to illustrate the essence of the man.

The statement, taken from the introduction to a Hoover Digest paying tribute to his legacy shortly after his death:

I have recently been reading the Book of Confessions for the Presbyterian Church. For those who aren’t aware of what that is, the book is essentially one of declaration and definition. This carries a great many implications and serves a great many purposes, but the one upon which I intend to elaborate may be analogized […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Portman es Mas Macho

 

Whether or not Rob Portman is your cup of tea for Mitt Romney’s running mate (Keith Urbahn makes a good case against in the most recent installment of the “Young Guns” podcast), give the guy this: he’s a dude. I mean, a serious dude.

Check out this anecdote from a new Associated Press story:

If he is, he is succeeding handily. Mike, when we accused of you expanding the nanny state, we didn’t expect you would take it this literally. Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed. More

Peter Robinson reflected on Charles Murray’s Wall Street Journal piece, “Why Capitalism Has an Image Problem,” and says “The rich capitalists who occupy, so to speak, our cultural chokepoints tend to be overwhelmingly liberal…But why should it be so?” It is a simple question with a long and very complicated answer. It is a tangled […]

Republicans must demand that Democrats who don’t agree with what Democrats Thomas Menino, Rahm Emanuel and Christine Quinn have said concerning Chik-Fil-A publicly denounce their fellow Democrats. Republicans have a duty to ask Democrats if they believe that there should be a litmus test for operating a business in America. We need to know if that […]

Maybe you’ve seen this quote from the Dalai Lama on your liberal friend’s Facebook wall: “Our good fortune is dependent upon the cooperation and contributions of others. Every aspect of our present well-being is due to hard work on the part of others. As we look around us at the buildings we live and work […]

One of the main defenses that have been offered up for Obama’s “You didn’t build that” speech is that he was talking about roads and bridges. Well, here’s what he said at a fundraiser on Oct 12, 2011: “What’s great about this country is you’ve got a good idea, you’ve got a service that nobody […]

As King Prawn mentions below, today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Milton Friedman. Apologies to Ricochet Members if this has been posted recently, but if you haven’t seen this portion of Friedman’s exchange with Phil Donahue, you really must watch it. It’s one of those clips that I enjoy revisiting from time […]

Reason’s Nanny of the Month last month was Middleborough, Ma, which imposed fines for public use of profanity. At first blush, it seems unreasonable for government to so blatantly censor speech. However, at this level of government, isn’t setting standards for public behavior exactly what should be happening? These are people who willingly live within […]
