Our Director of Security, Ponzi Roberts, takes us on a beat-thumping journey through the world of Federal Reserve Notes. Symbolizing the Federal Reserve Note’s place in society, Ponzi expresses their elasticity. They can’t hold their value forever. Join us on Fridays to learn about the Federal Reserve and where this fiat currency comes from.
Until then, enjoy DJ Ponzi’s performance and share!
I admit I probably have a terrible sense of humor. I laugh at impolite jokes; I often get caught saying unsettling truths; and if dirty looks were a crime, my college years would have surrounded me by people in bright orange jump suits instead of those over-priced sweat shirts with RAMAPO written across the center:
P.J. O'Rourke gets a lot of laughs during a this very old CPAC video, but listen to how he phrases the ideas he introduces. We've got to win the war of ideas, but victory won't come just because they're better ideas: We also need humor to win. That's why Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are so successful. We must realize laughter lowers people's guard and paves the way for us to more easily make new converts to liberty.
Last week, the U.S. occupation of Iraq officially ceased being a combat mission as the military entered the stability phase of its operations. Here are some of the major victories of the seven-and-a-half-year war:
Oct. 11, 2002: In the most crucial victory of the campaign, the Bush administration wins enough congressional votes to authorize war
Apr. 12, 2003: Statue of Iraqi track star Taffar Al Saffar toppled in front of Mosul Boys & Girls Club
Nov. 27, 2003: President Bush absentmindedly gnaws at prop Thanksgiving turkey while watching The New Three Stooges cartoon on portable DVD player
Oct. 17, 2004: Anger over the invasion and daily bombings spurs the creation of al-Qaeda in Iraq, finally producing the enemy we need to justify the war
I started singing this song in the YAL office just for the sake of irony while doing work that promotes liberty, but it soon got stuck in everybody's heads. Then I started singing it in the voice of Eric Cartman from South Park and it was so epic that I had to make a video. Apologies to Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
I walked into a men's room in a House office building, and standing in the middle of the bathroom is an intern, slowly and very deliberately stroking his hair. He was totally oblivious to the three other people having to walk around him to use the toilets and wash their hands. He just kept staring into the mirror and petting himself. This person will likely win a seat in Congress within 20 years.
