Dear Readers: Plenty of exciting news to share with you today. I had a chance to interview Captain Capitalism, Aaron Clarey, in anticipation of his appearance on CANTO TALK tonight (7 pm Pacific Time/9 pm Central Time). It seems Aaron arrived safely home from his most recent adventures, and was calling from a bistro and enjoying a cigar while we discussed the upcoming program.
Aaron’s book, “Worhless” offers some salient and pithy warnings about the economic hardship induced by picking the wrong major in college. The tome offers heart-felt warnings by Aaron, who thinks he has one of the “worthless” majors. “The kids are really the victims in all of this,” said Aaron. “My book, “Worthless“, is apolitical, non-partisan. The only thing that Big Education serves is Big Education”. At that point, I commented about a striking graphic in his book — the comparison between the spending on Big Education vs Big Oil.
I have to admit, Aaron has produced some of the most interesting YouTube videos that I have seen. I uncovered this gem as I was doing show-prep for tonight:
The Higher Education Bubble is a topic I have been following for some time, as I have an eye toward the future of the Young Prince. I read Glenn Reynold’s wonderful analysis on the subject (click HERE to be directed to this excellent book).
Glenn reported that Presidential candidate Mitt Romney actually offered fiscally sensible advice to students: Avoid getting into debt while obtaining a degree. However, as Obama serves the Big Education elite (which supplies him with lots and lots of donations), the soon-to-be-ex-President chided Romney. As Obama spends without thought to the future, it seems that he considers himself quite the role model for the next generation.
Which reminds me of this chestnut, “The Most Arrogant Man in the World”:
(MUT Note: Aaron just posted some sage fiscal wisdom for the young today: Why Gen Y and Gen X Should Not Save for Retirement ).
So, this is going to be an amazing show. Now, for something a little more disconcerting: The Ulsterman Report posted an interesting article yesterday: WHITE HOUSE INSIDER ISSUES WARNING – FALSE FLAG PLANNED FOR GOP CONVENTION?
Here is what I know to this point. At least what I am comfortable sharing with you:
-Biden scheduled for event Monday prior to official opening of the GOP convention.
-There is to be some form of altercation, protest, outbreak, etc. Not sure on specifics. Purpose is to make VP look sympathetic but more important, give media portrayal of “radical” conservatives a timely visual upon which to build that right through to Election Day.
When I shared this information with the SLOBs (San-Diego Local Order of Bloggers), several were reminded that infiltration was one of the tactics used in the early stages of the Tea Party movement. Basically, our opponents decided to insert themselves into our event with racist, tasteless signs to smear the entire citizen protest movement. WC Varones takes us back to those heady days: Fake Tea Partier doesn’t fool anyone
It may be worthwhile downloading “Not one of Us” signs and review strategies in handling such distasteful False-Flag tactics:
Good times, my friends, good times.
As Glenn Reynolds/Instapundit notes: Of course, you can now assume that Obama operatives are presumptively to blame for any disturbances.
Happily, it looks like those tactics just won’t work. Featuring a piece from Professor Jacobson’s new site, College Insurrection: U. Colorado Profs Predict Romney Win
One last note: Silvio has kindly invited Celtic musician Marc Gunn onto tonight shows, as he has noted that I featured such music on MUT’s MUSIC MIX. So, I wanted to conclude with Marc’s rendition of one of my very favorite songs: STAR OF THE COUNTY DOWN.
