Poor boys don't have access to "sport" equipment , so they invent something to do , that is available . Soccer is for playing , not watching . It is practiced world wide .
Soccer is a pass time for boys who kick around rocks ( or other debree available ) around the world , to control their energy . Girls don't play it ( or didn't when I was growing up in Europe) . Soccer is not an ARENA SPORT that thrills the masses .

Excellent article , as usual . You are my hero , Dr .Sowell .
As long as INCOME is taxed , there will be no growth of the economy . Fair Tax is the only answer . It would take the power out of the hands of Government and give it back to the individual citizen .

As one of those Hungarians , who came to this country in 1957 , I find all this grasping for " free money " by some people just an other creative scam . What shade of "black" deserves payment ? Should Obama pay or receive money ?Or is he even ?

Recent elections in Hungary were also ignored , because the Prime Minister is not a leftist . He is called names , trying to discredit him , like what the opposition does to every non leftist politician .
The Tea Party is for the Fair Tax . The current Progressive Tax on income is the basis of our economic decline . Capitalism needs Capital in private hands . Karl Marx was the first anti capitalist , and set off world wide strife with his ideas . Communism does'nt work because a small minority ( Government )will own everything and the rest of the people toil like slaves for nothing beyond the bare minimum . Amerca was the only place on eart where capitalism worked . We can't let it die !

I am surprised , that nobody seems to notice that the "Tea Party " is hated by both sides of the Isle , because they support the Fair Tax . Mike Huckabee was their (The first Tea Partier ) candidate , and did well until the Republicans went after him too, and Fred Thompson split the conservative vote to give the election to McCain . Huckabee doesn't seem like the great candidate that he is, until you realize the depth of the change in government he is promising to make . He tries to camouflage himself , for good reason . Please have him on your show .

The Progressive Tax on Income is the base for Government tyranny . People dont work if they can't build Capital .( Even raises in the Minimum Wage result in higher taxes so it will not help the poor) . Karl Marx's Das Kapital should be required reading in schools . The IRS could and should be abolished , and the "Fair Tax" should take the place of the tax on income , to fund government .
