Stimulus for Tax Cheats
In a piece about yet another massive failure by the government, Doc Zero provides this concise observation about the absurd hypocrisy of government spending:
Quoting John Hayward:
It’s funny how spending is always such an urgent business that we can’t even read the legislation, or carefully investigate the individuals and corporations we are compelled to subsidize. On the other hand, even the smallest spending reduction is an agonizing process which stretches out for months, while Democrats denounce budget cutters as heartless monsters who want to kill as many women and elderly people as they can.
Which reminds me of a bumper-sticker I saw yesterday: "Liberalism: such a good idea, it has to be mandated."
