Still Thinking

I started working on one little concept earlier in the day, which involved re-listening to a speech I heard last week. And then I got distracted spending a few hours with Baby Political Sphere. So today's post is just a breather. I'll just leave you with a couple of recent quotes I collected from Thomas Sowell.

Since the government creates no wealth, it can only transfer the wealth required to hire people. Even if the government creates a million jobs, that is not a net increase in jobs, when the money that pays for those jobs is taken from the private sector, which loses that much ability to create private jobs.—Thomas Sowell, 7-6-2011

People who say they want a government program because "I don't want to be a burden to my children" apparently think it is all right to be a burden to other people's children.—Thomas Sowell, 8-2-2011
