The Underclass

If you pay more for a behavior you will get more of it. If you pay less for a behavior you will get less of it. If you pay more welfare, free this and free that for each illigitimate child then you will get more illigitimate children. If you pay less- in fact make it costly- to get married and have legitimate children then you will get less marriage. If you pay people to beat up other people who want to get an education then you will get more people willing to beat up other people who want an education and fewer people wanting to get an education. If you try to cut back on ANY welfare payment then "you want kids with autism and down's syndrome to fend for themselves." Ignore that obesity- fat kids- is the problem w/ the underclass.

Trashing Achievements

Another exceptional article from Professor Sowell: From race to class to a discourse on political rhetoric, the economist hist another home run. The talk radio guys have been railing about this for days but nobody has captured the argument this succintly. We cannot let this guy get away with trashing American exceptionalism, trashing achievement, and telling us that business owners who get up at 5:00 a.m. for a 17 hour shift who outperform the competitors didn't build there business. The nation really is done if we believe that poison lie. I teach my kids to respect succesful people. Achievement is good! Apparently neither Frank Marshal Davis nor Bill Ayers, nor his mother or father taught the President those values.
