  • Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? The Milton Friedman Edition

      This demonstrated how private schools seek out the best authorities to enhance the education of our most precious commodity, our future, our children. Not to mention, the contents was just good commonsense, which seems to be in short supply in today's American society.

      It really doesn't take much to be smarter than Congress. Perhaps the correct question should be, what isn't?

      This video should be mandated in every school and viewed by every member of anything GOVERNMENT. It would even be a good idea that every person new to this country get some knowledge of this country by viewing this simple video. More efficient, mandate it to every person new to this country that has established their employment in the government.
