My morning reading

I found a few tidbits this morning as I bounced around the web. First, Thomas Sowell. I love Sowell. An excerpt:

"Barack Obama's "change" is a recycling of the kinds of policies and rhetoric of the New Deal that prolonged the Great Depression of the 1930s far beyond the duration of any depression before or since. These are the same kinds of liberal policies that led to double-digit inflation, double-digit interest rates and rising unemployment during the Carter administration. "

After hearing Bill Clinton and Joe Biden speak at the Dem convention, and observing both of them and many others over the years, this article isn't surprising.

Free speech? Apparently the Obama campaign thinks it doesn't apply to those who dare question his associates and activities.

There's a tremendous amount out there today about Sarah Palin. Predictably, the Democrat activists think she was a bad choice. Of course they do. She energized a good segment of the snoozing Republican base. I heard a news report this morning that the McCain campaign raised $4 million in one day yesterday.

Things just got interesting.

The Sowell quote:
But the prolonging of the Great Depression made people think it was worse, so that they neeeeded the govt to rescue them from how bad it was, so for generations to come, many families have been loyal Democrats because of how Roosevelt "helped" them in their time of dire need (without realizing that he was a huge factor in creating their need).

(Not unlike HSLDA... but that's another can o' worms.)

I needed for things to get interesting, because I was having some problems with this election, now at least there is something to watch...though it appears we will be watching a hurricane.
