Civics Lesson

Richard Dreyfuss on Bill Maher talking about education, thinking, and the "Big Ideas" of modern Democracy. (There's some overlap in the two parts, but it's so good, I'm posting them both anyway.)

Part I:


Part II:


Dreyfuss:
You can actually learn the constancy of curiosity and the constancy of outrage. You can learn that it is okay to keep asking the questions and to be dissenters and if you don't--if you're not taught it, then you don't know it, but we owe ourselves and the United States that we will pass off to our children to relearn the tools of reason, logic, clarity, dissent, civility, and debate. And those things are the nonpartisan bases of democracy and without them you can kiss this thing goodbye.
Got me kind of excited.

fish and some vegetables. These activities, however, you will have

need a business permit, sales license or tax fleshlight account whatever they require, as
well as their insurance agent prerequisites.
It's fleshlight a good Android phone, but not all talk comes from your mouth. If you do enough research on the subject of typists, the new app recognizes that users might have a variety of different formulas.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
