Many Americans (and other nationalities) are illiterate when it comes to other countries on this planet.

Remember some say he was born in Kenya? People from Kenya could/might be called Kenyesian. I think the proper term is Kenyan.

Others say he was born in Hawaii.

Are you trying to say it had something to do with Keynesian economics?

I didn't hear the word economics in the questions on the link.

I would have said

What's a Keynesian? ...Some probably did, but they didn't make the cut on the video.

ALL RIGHT or ALRIGHT NOT ALLRIGHT! Happy And no one said jack about where he was born, LOL The people being questioned assumed that was the case just like you did by reading Mikes OP he said born the video commentator asked was he keynesian, LOL So you all assummed something that wasn't said.

and when they tried to refer to economics
by JP Bill / November 2, 2010 4:48 AM PDT

the guy with the mike said...I'm asking the questions.

assumed that was the case just like you did

I assumed nothing...you did.


I brought up all the possibilities, and if you watch the entire video 1 lady questioned his pronunciation of the word.

And no one said jack about where he was born,

The people being interviewed did.

Perhaps they need to learn to read and have a hearing test also.

A few pages later came the now famous quote from economist Milton Friedman: "We are all Keynesians now." Friedman later objected that it was taken out of context--all he meant was that everybody used Keynesian language and concepts. But the phrase stuck. It's often attributed these days to Republican President Richard Nixon, but what Nixon actually said, in 1971, was the less expansive "I am now a Keynesian."

Funny.
by MDFlax / November 2, 2010 7:26 AM PDT

I thought it was quite funny.

It's a word trick of course, and would probably get the same reaction from non-Obama supporters. But instead of saying No, they would say Yes.

A good psychological test.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
