Program Notes

Two taxi-cab thoughts I forgot to say during the show:

1. Insofar as some immigrants think they’re getting a benefit, as they’ll be eligible for some freebies, as Objectivists we know that the stolen–which is what welfare benefits are–cannot truly be a benefit to anyone.

2. The Muslims who I believe should be excluded are those who believe in waging Jihad in order to establish Shariah and/or a Caliphate. The same would apply to any people advocating violent revolution in the cause of communism, ecological totalitarianism, etc.

3. A more precise formulation of my response to Ted Cruz’s “Stop Obama’s Amnesty” graphic: It’s not clear that 316 million citizens understand separation of powers–or even that they’re interested in preserving it. But nonetheless separation of powers is an integral part of a constitutional republic established on the principle and for the purpose of protecting individual rights.
