Thomas Paine Speaks
UPDATE 1925 CDT 23 MARCH 09: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds", sayeth Emerson. Well, shucks -- no sooner did I pull the vid (which I still haven't watched in full) then did a regular viewer suggest a better path than pulling it altogether.
So "viewer beware" of the call for universal service and for abolition of the electoral college -- but watch the whole thing and make up your own mind.
And remember, to quote Perry Eidelbus, "Let me put it this way, saying nothing more.
Was the Boston Tea Party at all about postponing buying the tea? How did it get the attention desired?"
UPDATE 1845 CDT 23 MARCH 09: Mea culpa. I have never pulled a piece of content before. Now, with multiple commenters calling us out for having advocated universal service, I yield. I watched the opening bits of the vid and thought it useful; so much for not fully vetting content prior to posting.
Thanks for keeping things honest.
Pass it on.
