    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If we were being invaded, I would take up arms and fight by whatever means possible.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    And the many different plans the Germans had to bomb America, and the German spies that infiltrated our shores, and the plans they had to use radioactive ordnance against us...
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The Germans couldn't even pull off Operation Sea Lion. It was postponed in 1940 and was never a real option afterwards. If they couldn't get across 20 miles of ocean who the hell thinks they could have made it to the US?

    I would have thought two simple words, "Pearl Harbor", would have been enough to prove the point.


    I'm NOT saying we should have - but had we stayed out of the War in Europe I doubt the Germans would have paid us any notice (until after securing Europe ).

    Pearl Harbor was an attack, not an invasion.

    Agreed - but the Philippines and various other US territories in the Pacific were.

    Remember, Hawaii was only a territory back then, too.
