I spend my time reading books by people that actually know things. I suggest you try that as an alternative to O'Reilly and Obama.

Why hasn't this been done? Honestly, it's probably because people enjoy making blake and fe look stupid, but I really do feel it holds this place back a lot.

I've read Rand, Friedman, Levitt, and Michael Lewis as well. I switch up what I'm reading all the time, depending on what I'm in the mood for.

The worst part is O'Reilly and his fanbase advocate this book to be taught in schools as supplimental reading material, when there isn't a single source citation through the entire book...I mean, O'Reilly is a smart guy, Ivy League educated, but I don't take anybody's word as gospel without any proof of his points...the book is nothing more (to me) than O'Reilly's fictitious account of what might have happened during the 2 week time period before Lincoln's death, and nothing more.

I guess I just have to adjust my paradigm of the book in order to enjoy it. I just know millions of Americans out there will choose subconciously not to do the same.
I want to say it is Dreams of My Father.


O'Reilly's books... ignore him and stick to Tom Woods and Kevin Gutzman. O'Reilly doesn't pull for original sources.

I didn't mean "what?!" in astonishment, it was more of a "huh?" I have been working 10 hours a day plus school on my off days so pardon me if I don't rush home to watch media coverage of Sandy.

So all this video proves to me is that Obama did what a President of the United States should be doing during natural disasters. Not sure why anyone should get all worked up about it.

Let's not forget that I am sure his administration also said "Be incredibly attentive to Sandy because it will make you look good." Something along those lines.

What is that? When the state calls for help, the general government should come running? I agree. A problem might arise if a state calls for help without trying to combat the casualty first, or if a state just says "screw preparation" and relies completely on the general government.

Damn government helicopters, always making noise by my office. Giving me a damn headache.

You're calling states a lot faster than CNN or ABC has them up but it's all exit polling, lol.

Odd. Well these states are kind of no-brainers, nothing controversial or close yet. I guess NBC is calling these.
