How did a Chicago lawyer become a dietician capable of telling every child in America what to eat?

Entitlement Reforms

Americans are becoming childlike with the nanny state the great mother. I don't see a good ending coming out of the situation Sowell describes. We'll either have massive inflation or Greece-like riots.
When the housing market reaches its bottom, Mulligan will get his inflation wish. Anyone who has gone to a grocery store, gas station, or clothing shop knows prices of almost everything has gone up by 10%++++ So far I've seen no benefits from this inflation.
The politicians have caused many, if not most, Americans to expect to be given "free" goodies. Once promised, these things are hard to rescind, as they have discovered in Europe. Buchanan is correct, the old coalition of Americans who enjoy freedom and self reliance is gone.
Many, if not most, Americans have developed an entitlement mentality. They think they are entitled to other people's money. The 2012 election will be very difficult to overcome this mindset.

Medical care should be like anything else, we get what we pay for, no more, no less. Instead anyone who buys insurance is paying for things they don't necessarily want and for those too irresponsible to care for themselves. Tort reform would be helpful too.

Everyone I've talked to has supported Chick-fil-A because they disapproved of the government's bullying. I don't think a single mention of gay marriage or anything related ever came up.
Romney and the GOP's silence on this subject is embarrassing. If they can't stand up for freedom of thought what good are they?

What's Behind Hatred of Obama?

I'm not so sure if it's hatred of Obama, or hatred of elites in general. This includes the Washington elites, media types, academics, Hollywood, etc. etc. They all want to tell us how to live our lives while making themselves fat and happy at the expense of the peasants. The internet has made it easier for the little people to see what is really going on, and many of us hate what we see.
