Here is a letter to the War Street Journal about what Clint Eastwood said in an interview.
He also said, “The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there.”
He claimed to be a libertarian. Huh.
Clint Eastwood’s claim that California is a place “other than a democracy” because of excessive regulation shows a profound misunderstanding of the real cause of California’s decline, which is democracy.
California’s system of making law with referendum is the closest thing to a democracy we have in this country. A majority voted in the crazy regulations in California. Democracy does not mean freedom, it means tyranny by a majority.

Another over-achiever. He died last May. As we were driving home from Karl and Mandy’s last night I, again, thought about what quick reactions would be required to do what Mr. Lauda did. It wasn’t just his driving, it was his relationship with humanity.
Sophie Scholl (21), Hans Scholl (24) & Christoph Probst (24) who were members of the German anti-Nazi resistance group, The White Rose were executed by guillotine on this day in 1943.
In a cornfield each tiny seed sprouts into a tiny seedling, subject to the calamities of weather and insects and disease. It struggles on its own to survive without any knowledge of the neighboring plants. But without its neighbors it wouldn’t survive. It would grow tall, blow over, and die. Its own selfish drive to survive benefits its neighbors, as does theirs, and this results in a beautiful field of corn.
