Today’s Quote: O’Rourke

“You can’t get rid of poverty by giving people money.”

–P.J. O’Rourke


And just to go along with that theme, check out this report on the so-called “War on Poverty” that we’ve been waging–and failing–since Lyndon Johnson, courtesy of the Cato Institute. It’s bad enough throwing money down our current day rat-holes of military adventurism, bogus “Green Energy” projects for favored political donors and “entertainment” for Secret Service Agents and GSA employees (and their spouses). Why do we think it’s a good idea to continue flushing $1 TRILLION (yes, a “T”) every year on “fighting” poverty by redistributing wealth yet not actually reducing poverty?

Government needs to be drastically and ruthlessly downsized at all levels in this country…
