Well, Mr. Jackson, Jr., Thomas Sowell. you definitely are not. You lack his understanding of economics, his clear reality of the problems facing us today, and, most importantly, his grip on the the impotent rage that Obama impotently spews whenever he talks. You are unrealistic and without depth. Considering the state of our economy, those 5 things that you innumerate are not at the top of the list. Clearly you weren't raised in Harlem nor have you had much in depth experience dealing with a broad enough number of people including ones like me. To you, I'm just a pain in the rear. My comment to you then, is: "Right back at you."
