I'm still waiting for your prediction to come true about the censorship from the PW.

For the video, I say that it is the greatest lead joke I have had about Milton Friedmann, the ideologue who was worshipped by Reagan and Greenspan, and who helped create the downfall of America as witnessed today by the Great Recession of 2008-200?. I listened to it and particularly laughed when he repeatedly said he didn't know anything about various pieces of the pencil (which I believed him, he was ignorant, like what is graphite?), but claimed it was made because of higher principles in operation(his ideology) even though the various contributors were of different religions and countries. If I were to believe his ideology, then the growers of poppy (heroin) in Afghanistan, funders of the Taliban, are simply participants in the free market approach to producing "pencils" for us consumers in the Western world.

You guys living in Castlewood are a world to yourself!

(the clip is great. I need to put it in my library. As time passes, the ludicrity of the ideology increases as it is compared to what happens in the real world.)
