    Dr Sowell is a national treasure.

    Lefties are devoid of rational thought. They are also cheap bastards but very generous with other people’s money.

    • Grouchy says:

      That he is, Hardnox. (You could have left out the word, “rational”, and been just as truthful~!)
      Socialism is the high life, lived on Other Peoples Money. Hmmm, sounds like our government.

  2. vonmesser says:

    It’s not greed to take other people’s money because you can use it for better purposes than they will. (Just ask a liberal, she’ll tell you that)

    • Grouchy says:

      True, VM. And it seems that no one who EARNS their money knows best how to spend it. Libs gather it “any way but loose, and loose is a possibility, as well~!”

    “He who forgets the past…” “From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs”.

    • Grouchy says:

      Pure-dee socialism, Marxism, communism, and any other “ism” that destroys mans will to earn their own way. Good comment, Gene, and Thank You.

  4. CW says:

    So simple and so perfectly said. Great quote, Grouchy.

    • Grouchy says:

      It’s the implementation that’s hell, CW. Sowell is so right, in so many ways~!
      Have a wonderful day, and it’s good to hear from you~!

  5. I don’t know about anybody else but I want my money to got to a worthy cause not the unworthy cause of Government redistribution.

  6. Grouchy says:

    And YOU, Dear Friend, are the most worthy cause for your earnings, and only YOU should have the choice of your philanthropy, or not.
    NO ONE else can walk in your shoes, not think and reason with your brain.
