Ron Paul on Nightly Business Report

I watch the Nightly Business Report on PBS, if only to laugh at how their experts speak of how great the economy is. They finally had Dr. Paul on for a bit when he was at an Iowa meeting. Click to start the video, then pull the bar to about 5:30, you'll hear the end of Cong. Bachmann, then Dr. Paul:

Ron Paul did a fantastic job and made me so proud to be a supporter. He really has so much to say and I felt that everyone was really interested and paying close attention. Nobody knows this stuff like he does. However, out of all of them this one bugged me the most.... "if you need compensation fine... 99 weeks you could have your associates degree.... ---we do not give money to people for doing nothing---" Gingrich. Ummm, excuse me, but isn't that compensation money, money that WE actually worked for? And isn't getting a degree putting a person in more debt while unemployed with possibly no job to go to?

thank you for posting


Thanks for posting this! "Ron Paul: Unadulterated, Unfiltered,

Uncensored, 100% Octane!!"

Ran across it elsewhere, wanted to post it but it was chopped up into 4 pieces on YT. Here're the comments that originally led me to it.

"Ron Paul triumphant at the National Press Club, against a hostile host and hostile questioners."

UPDATE from Joshua Crosby:

"I think what makes this forum so powerful for Ron is that he was allowed to give extended answers and he was able to show the logical foundation for his answers. In most of his interviews, he has to jump straight to the conclusion and it is so foreign to the prevailing groupthink that it makes him sound irascible. I wish in those interviews he were allowed to give more than a soundbite because it is when you really have the underpinning for what he's saying that you find that he is only saying what you knew to be true all along."

Gotta love Newt's indentured servant plan.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

That and

why not double or triple the cost of unemployment?

Whose going to pay for the training? There needs to be instructors, equipment, materials, transportation, mandates, graduation requirements, rent for a physical location, operational expenses, additional job placement services, on and on and on.

It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Well, selling Alaska was the dumbest thing I've ever heard, but this was a close second. I really do not think that he's thought it through.

So he does not think that we should "pay people to do nothing." Ok, I get the logic there. And I'd agree with that initial premise. But is the solution to not only pay them to do nothing, but now also pay to train them for a job that they may or may not even get?

How many will just end up in government jobs? What would be the goal of the program? What would we call this new department - perhaps the Department of Re-Education?

What if the citation on your termination letter was that you were completely qualified for the job but that you were fired due to obesity? Will Newt's plan involve a rigorous exercise and nutrition program? What about a sleeping schedule? Or drug testing with urine and blood samples?

In fact Newt, why not just declare it a Fascist State, set fire to the Constitution, and throw any unemployed worker into a readjustment concentration camp?

He is the worst of everyone up there. Newt has no idea who or what he is. Global warming buddies with freakaziod Nancy Pelosi one week, then a Tea Party Constitutionalists the next.

Very competent speaker, no doubt, but the man lacks the backbone of character.
