"Silent" Calvin Coolidge Inaugural Pageantry, 1925.

President Coolidge's Inauguration (1925) 10 minutes.

Calvin Coolidge treated to a splendid inaugural day. Captioned Newsreel includes marching brass bands, pageantry, pomp & ceremony. Herds of horses... A few herds of horseless carriages.... A truly marvelous grand parade. No speaking parts.

Of course you couldn't, you

Of course you couldn't, you were already dead for 15 years...

Reports of my death are an exaggeration.

Sending my reply late was a matter of course. My course.

    "It has been reported that I was seriously ill--it was another man; dying--it was another man; dead--the other man again...As far as I can see, nothing remains to be reported, except that I have become a foreigner. When you hear it, don't you believe it. And don't take the trouble to deny it. Merely just raise the American flag on our house in Hartford and let it talk." - Letter to Frank E. Bliss, 11/4/1897

I appreciate your kind attention to this matter.

Coolidge on the surface may look good, but...

If you read Murray Rothbard's book "America's Great Depression", the hidden policies of the Coolidge administration are revealed. Coolidge, his secretary of the treasury Andrew Mellon, and his secretary of commerce Herbert Hoover were all proponents of monetary inflation by the Federal Reserve. Coolidge was a proponent of the ideas that regulation of the money supply creates price stability, that it was necessary to print money and lend it to foreign nations so they could purchase our agricultural exports, and that it was necessary to inflate at a greater rate than England in order to prevent England from loosing gold to the U.S. As Coolidge famously said in a pre-election speech in 1924, "It has been the policy of this administration to reduce discount rates," and he promised to continue to keep them low, thus spurring more inflation. Harding, Coolidge, Mellon, and Hoover should not be praised for "laissez faire" policies; they should be ridiculed for their obsession with central banking.

Yes. Indeed. Yet to be seen. Hey! This is inauguration day.

What pageantry! Was it not exciting to see those herds of horses shepherd those wreck-less horseless carriages? (See my most recent reply above, lest I repeat myself.)
