And Now…The Rest of The Story
Today we say goodbye to a great journalist and conservative…Paul Harvey.
Paul Harvey had an amazing career on the radio spanning 7 decades! I personally listed to his News and Comments every chance I could for many years. He is a true legend and radio icon.
In a tribute to Paul, we here at MKCB have decided to conduct a final interview of Mr. Harvey with some of his more famous quotes:
MK: Paul, it is great to see you and I’m so exicted to ask you a few final questions before you journey on to a better place. So on to my first question. We are obviously going through some tough economic times–in fact some would say the worst in a billion years. What advice can you give to those who have been really feeling the pinch of the current economic situation?
PAUL: ” In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.”
MK: Well I think that is sound, but our current President continues to pound the message that we are in a “crisis” that we are suffering through times “like none other” that we are in an “unprecedented economic downturn,” so what would you say to President Obama in his attempts to lead us through these times?
PAUL: “I’ve never seen a monument erected to a pessimest.” So President Obama ought to instead be the optimist after all…“every pessimist who ever lived has been buried in an unmarked grave. Tomorrow has always been better than today, and it always will be.”
MK: I could not agree more. And what about our great and wonderful Congress? Ms. Pelosi and her ilk are dead set to turn our economy from a people/capitalist driven economy to a government/socialsit driven economy. Any words for those who think we should look to Congress to “save us” from these economic times?
PAUL: “If ‘pro’ is the opposite of ‘con’ what is the opposite of ‘progress’?”
MK: Exactly. One thing an economic downturn does is force us to evaluate our lives and our careers. Any advice for those who are reflecting on the past and trying to decide where to go from here?
PAUL: “Like what you do, if you don’t like it, do something else.”
MK: To the lighter side of things–are you much of a golfer? Do you plan on hitting the golden links in heaven?
PAUL: “Golf is a game in which you yell ‘Fore!,’ shoot six, and write down five.”
MK: Finally, we have been told that Obama’s plans and stimulus package will “kick-start” the economy or “drop kick” it as VP Biden said, and yet today I learned that since President Barack Obama was elected, the Dow has dropped 2,562 points and this past Friday, the Commerce Department reported that the U.S. economy shrank by 6.2%, making it the worst quarter since 1982. Most economists are predicting that labor data to be released this Friday will show that over 700,000 jobs were lost in February. I thought President Obama was supposed to come in and save the economy, not turn it into something worse?
PAUL: “Now you know the rest of the story.”
