My friend, Gen LaGreca, was on the air yesterday on the Glenn Beck show on CNN. Seems he was raving about her article in the latest issue of The New Individualist. I thought she did very well, comfortable on camera, looking great and sounding smart. I haven't seen any videos up yet, but the transcript for this show with Gen LaGreca is here. She's toward the end.
Here's a snippet:
LAGRECA: Well, the self-help guide talks about how the welfare state is really destroying us, not just politically, which is bad enough, it`s bringing us to Socialism, but it`s destroying us psychologically and that`s important for everyone to realize, because if we don`t control our own lives and expect the government to do everything for us, then where`s our independence, where is our self-esteem? We`re replacing the American eagle flying proud and free with a chicken penned in a coop waiting to be fed.
BECK: You ain`t kidding. Gen, I appreciate it. Thank you very much, it`s a great article. I tell you, I have had a problem with Ayn Rand for a long time because of her godlessness. But I have to tell you, lately I`ve been thinking about "Atlas Shrugged" a lot. I`d like to go find a place where I could just go live with other people who are like-minded.
Ah, to be a chicken in a coop,
But soon you lose your head
And wind up in the soup.
