    Great article. Sadly enough, any liberal would not make it halfway through reading it without being enraged.
    Keep emotionally active. Cater to your favorite neurosis.

    Thomas Sowell is a hero of mine. He is the premiere thinker of our time. And he has a way of making his point with few words without fluff. I highly recommend his books and his weekly column available on townhall.com.

    Pay rates raised without regard to productivity are a virtual guarantee of unemployment, whether it is done in the name of ending "exploitation" in the Third World or providing "a living wage" in the United States.
    Back when Hong Kong was a British colony and its wage rates were set by supply and demand, the Wall Street Journal reported that its unemployment rate was less than 2 percent. Then, after China took over Hong Kong and mandated various worker benefits -- which add to labor costs, the same as higher wage rates -- Hong Kong's unemployment rate went over 8 percent. This was not high by European standards but it was unprecedented for Hong Kong. There is no free lunch in any part of the world.

    Excellent article. I'll have to check out townhall.com and think about adding it to my "check daily" bookmarks.

    There was an discussion in another forum (non gun related) where one posted commented that if a bad guy was in his home and threatening him and his family, he'd "put two in center mass".

    He was lambasted with such comments as: "Being prepared to kill someone is evil", "Couldn't you shoot him in the leg" and other such nonsense. Many people just don't get it.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if Mr. Sowell were running for president. Why can't we get these kinds of guys on either side of the floor?

    Because most people don't want to be involved in politics to that degree...ten showers a day to wash off the grimy feeling gets old.

    Unarmed Man?, How about "A Man Armed with a 3,000# Battering Ram Killed by Police". Interesting that on the same page as the article is a great video of a Guard of the 3rd Inf Div doing his duty, ARMED, just as all members of our Armed Forces do, daily, also armed because a weapon in the hands of someone who is trained to use it instills confidence of those around him. It also deters crime, loss of life, etc..

    From another of his columns quite some time ago:

    "Like virtually every other liberal crusade, gun control is based on the assumption that other people lack common sense and must be controlled by the superior wisdom and virtue of the annoited."

    I have this framed above my desk...
