Nice image of Thomas Sowell, and his excellent quote on the "first lesson of Economics".
The great GREAT Thomas Sowell nails it. All of this "cliff" rhetoric, in fact all the noise made over the last 4 years, is ALL ABOUT BIG GOVERNMENT taking over every aspect of our lives. It's not, and never has been about "fairness", etc, etc.
Collusion with the EPA. Here is how agencies get around the law and congress. No one can control them.
Cold Fury does the BEST rants, always worth a read. My little tirades are nothing, I say, nothing, compared to them.
Of course, strong language warning! If you feel strongly about something, it can't help but come out.

Just a sample from this excellent rant:
Okay, once and for all: Enough with this ‘we’re all to blame, we must all struggle to prevent tragedy’ bullcrap. Because none of us had anything to do with the actions of Jovan Belcher. You and I and every other reader of this newsletter and about 99.999 percent of the American people prevent these sorts of tragedies every day . . . by not committing them, and by never seriously contemplating considering them. We are not all ticking time bombs, one stressful day away from committing mass murder. If we were, civilization would collapse.

The "letter" quoted here expresses my sentiments, too. BUT, the price to be paid is huge.
Even Bob Dylan asked what do we have to pay to keep from going through these things twice...
Bottom line trouble is that demagogues will take advantage of the chaos, just like Europe in the 1930's . Didn't turn out so good then, won't be better now.

Yes, if they mislead, they lose all credibility. My personal take is that they lost all credibility in late 2008, and it's been downhill since then....
