"A Crisis Is A Terrible Thing to Waste"

Yup, that's what President Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emmanuel, recently said. Doesn't make me feel anything but manipulated. How's that? Well if you wonder what is going on with the government response to the economic crisis, you might want to read Thomas Sowell's take. Sowell who was himself a Marxist when he was younger, knows a thing or two about economics. The punch line — we're being gulled! or perhaps skinned is a more appropriate word. The reality is a massive shift of power from the people to the government. Freedom turns to servitude in the guise of a helping hand. No poison is so insidious as government. "I'm from the government, I'm here to help [enslave] you."
