The problem has at least 2 angles. (1) The famous scientists are interested in the turbulence zone sub/super sonic barrier and they need the funding, only the govs can provide. We well know that only govs can provide funding for the theoretical breakthrough. (2) The parasites use the opportunity to make money / name recognition / name reminder from this fact. Listening to the idiotic explanation of the latest, normal people object to exploded (thanks to the parasites!) costs.
Wow, our 2 last presidents, their clowns and the useful souls in Congress followed the orders of Goldman and destroyed mortgage market with their new accounting and regulations by attacking FNMA and FHLMC, Now Goldman has a nerve to accuse the feds on the results.

People changed, spoiled by promised (and sometimes delivered) perks by "progressive" politicians. Plus the most unfortunate feature - AFSCME. I think we will continue to decay.

Dr. Sowell (as usual) was at the money in exposing the problem. Unfortunately, seems, it is the result of democracy itself: our politicians prefer demagogic destruction just because of (1) it always easier to destroy than to create and (2) more people (usually temporary) benefit from their "solution" than the people who object it. Fortunately for us, our founding fathers knew the kind of scoundrels to deal with and created a system which decays very slow.

What is Islam?

Jeff Jacoby provided a comparison to the Third Reich. But as Islam is an ideology and militant organizations and governments are based on this ideology, then more logical would be to compare the situation to the Third Reich and the Nazism. It is hard to Islam to coexist with the modern culture. The statement, that if the land belonged to the Muslim it is forever Muslim land, is a source of tensions from Spain to the Israel, to the Armenia, to the India. The requirement to kill apostates contradicts to the freedom of religion and so on.

Prof. Sowell has too much respect for the “democratic” government versus the dictatorship. I would say that, while in the dictatorship only the highest level enjoyed uncontrolled immunity, in democratic government each local tsar is free to abuse. When Republican and then Democrat Treasury Secretaries “swooped down and grabbed” GSEs, Goldman Sachs demanded, in the interest of taxpayers and to punish greedy investors, there were no protests, no judicial review, no public discussion, just demand for more severe punishment. Substitute “greedy speculators” to “greedy kulaks” and “taxpayers” to “working people” to see that Stalin was more inventive and less shameless. This makes the analysis of prof. Sowell even more important.
