Ah, freedom and intellectual integrity

So the President of Columbia University took a lot of heat yesterday for inviting the Iranian Leader Ahmadinejad to speak at the institute of higher learning. He then proceeded to rip him a new hole. Check it out. Also, if you'd like to hear some intellectual dishonesty, look at Ahmadinejad's responses. My brother and I especially took pleasure from Mr. Bollinger commenting on Ahmadinejad debating the truth of the holocaust: "You are either brazenly provocative or astonishingly uneducated." & aside: "will you cease this outrage?"

Freedom and Perceived Prisons

I found this on Gordo's Blog today, and thought it was a great quote. I wish I could locate its author. So for now, it will be unknown.
Avoid regret for a man that has the freedom to follow his dreams, and does. Feel empathy for those who live under the illusion that they are trapped in prisons, and don’t.

Quote applicable to current event

"Those who wish to sacrifice essential liberties for a bit of temporary security deserve neither and will likely lose both." - Benjamin Franklin

Please disregard the F-bomb and the unnecessary "God Bless America" Garbage at the end of the video. I think the editor of this video went a bit far.

Real Men of Genius

Friends. Gone are the days of a quality Big 10 Conference. After UF's dismantling of OSU in front of a national audience, USC's shellacking of Michigan in the Rose Bowl, and Michigan's stellar start to the season at 0-2, it's sad days for the mideasters.
In light of that, somebody came up with a Bud Light Real Men of Genius spin off. So read the words below, and make sure you sing it to yourself. It's way funnier. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can listen to some old commercials here.
So without further ado...
Bud Light presents Real Men of Genius
(Reeeeaaal Men of Genius)
Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan
(Mr. Delusional Michigan Faaaaaan!)
Season after season, year after year, you try to
justify your absurdly high preseason ranking
(clutching at straws!)
Season after season, year after year, you scramble
to make futile attempt
sat damage control when the Wolverines lose to a
grossly inferior opponent
(How'd Appalachian State score Thirty Fouuuuur?)
Inevitably, you'll bring up the past, boast of
National Championships won 40
years before you were born
(those were thedaaaaaays!)
You will point out that you have more wins than any
other program as though
that is relevant to the current season
(been playingsince the 1870's)
Go on, ignore that loss to Ohio State in the regular
season finale andcontinue to believe that you'll defeat your bowl
opponent with striking ease
(we'll win by thirteeeeeey!)
So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of
Excuses, and take comfort
knowing that when you finish ranked number twenty,
you'll be back to numberfive when the preseason polls come out next year
(Mr. Delusional MichiganFan!)
