Something profound said by my daughter

Last night, my daughter and I were talking about money, and its uses. She said, not having read AS yet, I like the idea of trade, of exchanging something, like value for value, of usefulness to each. I almost burst with pride!! I literally got up, whooped and did a happy dance, followed up with a huge hug. I then explained to her that she summarized perfectly what John Galt was doing with the Gulch, and what Ayn Rand lived and breathed. A=A!

    NMA you and yours have done well and should be proud. I feel proud of her and you for the teacher and the taught.
    My daughter is only 6 and feels much like your daughter. I got my daughter already showing bucket calves and chickens in her second year showing now teaching her responsibility and to be productive . At her young age she already sees how her hard efforts pays off. Last fall she won best in showmanship in clover kids.

    Don't let her go to Obama School or Obama College, they will try to change her. I almost feel she already knows everything she needs to know to excel in life. Congratulations !!!

    That brought to mind a memory from thirty some years ago. Anyway the 25th Anniversary of JFK assassination. A lot of programs and comment on the tube. I refrained from comment and after the ending when theyfinished with something about the classified documents to be opened whernever she remarked, "would it really matter what was in the documents when they are opened? How would you know it was the truth? Considering who had control all those years?"

    I thought back to the critically flawed Warren Report and agreed with her critique. Big time hug.

    Around the same age she came up with the idea of seeing $19.99 and saying $20.00. The crowning touch was picking up an old 45rpm record with a puzzled look, "I didn't know you had hard floppy discs in the old days!"

    Without realizing I had been teaching her critical observation and thinking by setting an example.

    Dad...give yourself a hug!
