A Multiple of 3 – FDRs lucky number
Amity Shales, from a speech at Hillsdale College:
“As Henry Morgenthau [Secretary of the Treasury under FDR] reports in his diaries, prices were set by the president personally. FDR took the U.S. off the gold standard in April 1933 and by summer he was setting the gold price every morning from his bed. Morgenthau reports that at one point the president ordered the gold price up 21 cents. Why 21, Morganthau asked. Roosevelt replied, because it’s 3×7 and three is a lucky number. “If anyone knew how we set the gold price,” wrote Morganthau in his diary, “they would be frightened.”
Reviving the Constitution from Hillsdale College
If like me, you didn’t see this the first time around and you have the time to listen, like I do while I clean house etc, this is definitely worth your time.
I know there’s a lot of mindless tripe on network tv that I refuse to watch and I’m sure there are a lot of you who feel the same way. Reviving the Constitution is a much better use of an hour of my day, than almost anything else I could be doing.
You just can’t ever learn enough. There aren’t enough hours in the day for all that we need to learn. The most educated are the best armed and that is how we prepare for the fight we will soon be facing.
