Quote of the Day - Thomas Sowell

I thought I'd reprise this one as a reminder that the responsibility rests in all of us to hold our elected officials (and the unelected ones, too) to account...

"It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong". ~Thomas Sowell

Absolutely... that's the problem with democracy. The good people (i.e. the people with money) are at the mercy of the undisciplined, chaotic masses.

It's a very sad situation and it's very difficult for authorities to deal with these horrid people who insist on dragging us all down because they refuse to better themselves.

It's good to see someone with your ability and insight trying to do something about this problem.

I was actually refering to the politicians with this quote, but thanks for exposing your sad little bias to the rest of the world. Maybe next time you'll have the balls to do it with your real name...
