Quote of the Day

Before Heinlein became obsessed with sex and polyamory (and hell, even after that) he was a philosopher disguised as a novelist. This quote that Instapundit pulled out bears repeating:

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck."

Yep. And every tax plan that the Left's Lord and Messiah Barak Obama has come up with does exactly that. But the Democrat American Communist Party will find some scapegoat to blame it on.
