Bill Whittle explains why Han shot first, and why Hollywood must erase that fact.

The debt limit explained in terms of a small family. Funny, short, and accurate.

One of those xtranormal videos of an Atlas Shrugged conversation. Hank Rearden talks to his brother Philip. I really like listening to it.

Bill Whittle explains why love of theory is the root of all evil.

Not sure how you could have missed this one, but if you have, watch this now. It's pure gold. Adam Carolla explains the OWS Generation. He cuts right to the core of the issue; envy.
