AWESOME: Dwight Schultz ‘Touched by an Angel’ music video.

Dwight Schultz has always been one of my favorite actor/entertainers (warning have tissue ready).

The caption with the video reads:

This video is is based around one of the story-lines from the episode ‘A Joyful Noise’, from the series ‘Touched by an Angel’, where Dwight’s character portrays a man who is unable to cope with the death of his daughter. Grief stricken, he decides to take his own life, until an angel intervenes.

Dwight is also one of the very brightest thinkers in Hollywood (a town that desperately needs more good thinkers). Today Dwight signed on as a columnist with Big Hollywood where Dwight gives us a valuable yet almost forgotten history lesson:

Ike’s Not So Famous Second Warning

by Dwight Schultz

On Saturday January 17, 2009, during the Fox 4 0′clock news hour, Shepard Smith recalled the anniversary of President Eisenhower’s famous 1961 farewell address to the nation, but he only mentioned one of  Ike’s threat warnings, the one that reminded us to beware of the “Military Industrial Complex.” This warning came from a military man, so it’s been a turn of phrase that slobbers off the lips of suspicious lefty infants shortly after they’re forced to abandon the nipple and accept Marx.

So I shouted at Shepard, “What’s wrong with threat number two, you big beautiful blue eyed capitalist! What’s wrong with Fox News and your staff? There are only two warnings in that speech for God’s sake, if you’re going to honor a historical document maybe somebody could at least read it, and maybe for once in almost fifty years remind us of Ike’s second warning: “…that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.” Does anything come immediately to mind when you read that?  Ike goes on, “…Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity.” And, “The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.”

Do you think Ike was warning us that politicians like Al Gore and Barack Obama could cuddle with the scientific technological elite alike and, oh, I don’t know, maybe get behind Obama’s plan to tax your breath?  Do you think that perhaps some time in the near future you might not be considered a person but a carbon footprint … does something like that sound  ridiculous?

Have you seen how fast Obama has placed environmental academic hysterics and socialists in positions of real power? Steven Chu, John Holdren, Carol Browner and others are there to see to it that every exhaust in your life is a financial event favorable to the government.  So how is it that one of Ike’s warnings became famous and the other a historical ghost note?

Be sure to read the rest of Dwight’s column by following the link above. The scientific and social elite are not nearly as smart as they think they are and if we don’t do something they are going to spend until they run out of other people’s money and damage a whole lot of lives in the process.
