    It;s All About Control....

    Excellent.

    "Let me make this simple for the confused herds of policy wonks stumbling around the nation’s capital, trying to figure out why a disappointing populace won’t create jobs and shovel more revenue into the Treasury. I think the message thundering towards the establishment this November can be summed up in three simple, powerful words:

    No more control.


    Political control is what’s killing us. It is expressed in hundreds of ways: high tax rates with carefully tailored exceptions, massive bailouts, laws rigged to favor government-controlled industries, restrictions on resource development, and a vast poppy field of subsidies and penalties. The Democrats have added thousands of pages of fabulously expensive legislation since Obama took office. Two messages echo through those pages: Obey and be rewarded. Resist and be punished."


    MORE....
    A man's greatest mistake is to think he is working for somebody else.

    Unfortunately, the masses don't want to think about anything, let alone control.

    To them, the 'man' is always on them: 'traffic tickets', IRS, child support, warrants, you name it. IMO a large minority of people misbehave, and are bombarded with petty laws all the time. It has become a fact of life for them.

    Then there are the non performers, the people whose life peaked at 18. They have no critical thought.

    Then there are the more sucessful, who are doing OK, and just pay the taxes and fines, so they can get on with their life.

    So there is only a small number of folks who care what's really happening.

    Here in Minneapolis they have proposed a 'new fee' for garage sales. Anyone who wants to have a garage sale needs to pony up $25 for a permit. I find it quite amusing that anyone would let the government ass rape you for a garage sale. Yet our elected leaders seem to think this is perfectly respectable. Hey, they're elected, they are doing the will of the people....
