We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We scoff at America and its media and especially its talk-shows, perhaps rightly so. But can one imagine The Road to Serfdom on Richard and Judy (or on Newsnight, come to that), or A Patriot's History of Britain anywhere? From where I stand, one American "shock jock" is doing as much for public education in politics and history as all the BBC's networks put together.
I would not term Glenn a "shock jock" unless basic, grade-school history is shocking. But maybe it is, and maybe it should be shocking. America was meant to be a shockingly new kind of thing.
I beleive that they are referring more to Glenn's long history with radio, including his current show, and also perhaps his "controversial" Libertarian views.
Personally, I think EVERYONE should own a copy of The Road to Serfdom, but maybe that's just me...
Gosh, Leag, you're being even more tiresome than usual today. Apparently, any "grade school history" you had didn't take. Nowadays, students in grade school don't get exposed to much history at all. They get taught to sing silly songs praising our current President instead. And we know where that leads.
