This is the most enlightening tirade I think I have ever heard. For an entertainer, Jeff Daniels has one hell of a lot of facts about America at his fingertips. I don’t know if they are all factual but I will guess that they are mostly close if not totally accurate. This video was taken from a scene in the HBO series The Newsroom. Jeff certainly woke up this committee and the audience, especially the young lady asking the question. I hope you find Jeff’s explosion as interesting and enlightening as I did.
For your information I don’t apologize for the language. The message could be delivered with politically correct language but that is one of the problems that has stifled Americans from talking about our problems. Political correctness has weakened our ability to say what’s on our minds and that is what our founding fathers made possible for “We The People!” What is stated in the video is oh so true even if it is possibly slightly inaccurate and we need to do everything we can to correct those problems. If not us …. then who?
