Right! The political profession thrives on special dispensation such as amnesty, corporate bailouts, health care deals, union favoritism, wealth redistribution, tax breaks, and regulations. Equality and politics do not coexist. The same people who complain most about inequality are the ones making a comfortable living by promoting it. It's not a Democrat vs Republican issue.

Martin Luther King would say we have a “character” divide. Isn’t that the same thing as morality?

Amnesty is another example of special dispensation by government. It’s blatant inequality and it’s common with central governance - dictators, monarchs, presidents, politicians, and bureaucrats.

If the Fed mints silver dollars, why can’t I go to a bank and exchange a paper dollar for a silver dollar? . . . Yeah, I know. It’s a rhetorical question. But why then can’t I “buy” a silver dollar from the bank for 20 paper dollars. Why must I go to a coin dealer? . . . Or would such bank transactions make the whole Federal paper money scheme too embarrassingly obvious and transparent?
Is Obamacare affordable? It’s like any “free lunch” . . . it depends on who’s picking up the check. In Obama’s world, it’s about votes, not healthcare or economy.

Seems pretty simple: If you want freedom you must accept personal responsibility. Those who will not accept personal responsibility are not ready for freedom. Perhaps it’s just a maturation process . . . some grow up faster than others . . . some never grow up. Paternal government probably has a lot to do with that process.

Reverends Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson would call Dr. Sowell either a heretic or an Uncle Tom. I call him a credit to his race ... the human race.

Racial Quota Punishment

Racial quota limits for punishment is so blatantly stupid I don’t see how Dr. Sowell held it together as well as he did. I'm astonished that every other word wasn't an expletive.
Some people are into freedom, others are into control. If freedom is your thing, the means matter. If control is your thing, only the end matters. The Democrats achieved their end - control of healthcare. It’s not about smart or stupid. Its about something that should be very frightening - unless you’re stupid.
Has anyone made a study into the possible correlation between federal grant money and “scientific evidence” of anthropogenic global warming?
