Once again, a break from education quotes and a new one from House of Eratosthenes:
What is The Truth that people figure out? That some 30 percent of us already know, and that more and more of us learn as we debate back and forth on the latest "gimme"? Simply this: That the government doesn't really have money; it spends only what it has taken from others, plus what it borrows on the credit of others. Which naturally means that one man's "right" is another man's burden. That when we debate these proposals, we aren't debating how to make life more secure, we are in fact debating how to make our country less free.Which is why there is such urgency to pass massive spending bills without debate, review, or even reading them - because they have to get it done before too many people figure out this Truth, and get massively PISSED OFF.
