The blog I found this link from states that this video appeared right after his 60 Minutes story that aired recently. I admittedly did not see the 60 minutes piece and I’m not sure if was positive or negative towards Deion and what he is doing as a coach at Jackson State University and I do not care to find out. I have not always liked Deion because he was always too flashy and cocky for my taste. He is a gifted athlete and always backed up his off-field talk on the field. But I do love what I see here and WE NEED MORE OF THIS TYPE OF LEADERSHIP FOR OUR YOUTH.

What is prophetic is his references in the speech concerning what would happen if this type of speech was recorded and leaked, and why today’s coaches can’t talk LIKE HE IS. I’m guessing that thanks to the 60 minutes story this video was shared and we are better for it.

Today we need more leaders, coaches, and influencers like this to teach our youth. Not just about sports but life as well. Well done Deion.

I always liked to listen to Milton Friedman and his debate with Phil Donahue on the Phil Donahue Show back in 1979. The show is in two parts and you can watch it on Youtube. I will put a link to part 1 of 2 at the end of the post. First is this article titled: "The Economist as Scapegoat".

Quote: "I am a big fan of Friedman’s work though I certainly don’t agree with him about everything. But I cannot understand the claim that his ideas have decisively shaped our economic policy or the resulting complex set of consequences that we live with today. Those who blame Friedman (and Hayek) for what has gone wrong in the US — the ones I have quoted above and others such as Joseph Stiglitz — are attacking a straw man of remarkable clumsiness.

I invite these critics of Friedman to respond to the numbers and claims I’ve posted here. I will happily post rebuttals and charts with different numbers."

As of this posting time and date there are 30 replies. Most are positive about the article
