Oooops, I forgot in the midst of this busy day (DIAL UP WARNING) . . . .

7/31/2012: Happy 100th Birthday, Uncle Milton!!!







I invited some people, but for some reason, they had other plans.













I'm sure all of these people celebrated with their quiet voices.

Oh, and I got you a couple of cards . . .





CUTE designs, no?

Thanks for all that you and your followers have done these past 4 decades.







Schmuck.

3. When the history of the 20th century is written

some hundred-plus years from now - assuming humanity survives that long - Milton Friedman will be lumped with A. Hitler, J. Stalin, P. Pot, and Mao as one of the century's great aberrations of psychotic and barbaric inhumanity.

5. And the worst part about it is, it didn't have to BE that way.

The corporations HEISTED the U.S., and it was the worst of this man's policies . . . policies that simply shredded the citizens' progress of every Latin American country it was tried in . . . that led the way. We're STILL not veering from it. That's the most fucking GALLing thing about it all . . . Milton Friedman's failed experiment continues to this day, and it's seemingly never going to END.

8. Friedman was a truly a monster.

He wore a suit, held the title of professor and was never elected to any office, but the poison of his ideas - which can be summarized briefly: greed is good and should be enabled over any competing consideration - lives on to ravage billions of human beings around the world. The evil that men do lives on long after they are dead.
