Tales of The Welfare State

Fire of Liberty

Thomas Sowell has a good column out today on the absurdities that a lot of our politicians will go to expand the welfare state in an effort to support the "little guy." Amongst the silliest of all is the current campaign by various politicians to milk the federal government of millions to build and maintain the various municipal golf courses that dot this nation while refusing to sell these courses to the private sector for greater revenue. I guess the politicians are so used to wily-nilly spending and keeping a trophy to bring up every election that they're willing to take even more taxpayer money from the folks they're trying to help.
