My Kind of In-Kind Contribution

A reader sent me this as a follow-up to a kind note he sent about the book:

Oh, by the way, I purchased (about a week ago) eleven of your books and sent them to the John McCain election headquarters with the following note:  

Senator McCain and Staff, 

I am glad that you received the book I sent you; Economic Facts and Fallacies by Thomas Sowell. Thank you for your letter indicating that you received it.  I sincerely hope you and your staff read the book immediately.  Also I hope we are on “the same page” as to the truths the author Thomas Sowell shows us in that book.  Are we interested in the truth?  

Or what seems to work for the moment, (but Capitalism and individual rights work perfectly) fallacies the general public will buy through the media? If you want to win the Presidential election this fall and bring this country back to what it should be, do not compromise the principals of what this country was founded on!

Instead of just contributing my dollars (where I have no idea how they are used) I am sending several books for you, your senior advisors and staff to read before the election contest is to take place between you and the democrat candidate for President of the United States..  If you want to win this Presidential election this fall and bring this country back to what it should be do not compromise the principals of what this country was founded on!

 

Sincerely,

Everyone Is Wrong about The Searchers

The greatest Western of all time . . . isn’t. Though The Searchers is regularly hailed as the finest exemplar of its genre and one of the best movies of any kind (seventh-best of all time, according to the decennial Sight & Sound poll), John Ford’s 1956 film is mediocre for most of its run time. Nearly ... Read More
