A Few Good Men, Or at Least Very Smart Ones

Here is a fascinating news piece about Peter Schiff. Its like he was reading yesterday's paper, only it was over two years ago. Shane ordered some of his books and we're excited to read them. It would be nice if anyone listened to what he has to say.

Speaking of the economy,bailouts, and good advice, it was very heartening to read that Governors Jindal, Barbour, Otter, Perry, and Sanford are all turning down their portions of the bailout pie. As Governor Perry expains it,

"If this money expands entiltements, we will not accept it. This is exactly how addicts get hooked on drugs."

Hmmm, lets accept the money, start programs we cannot afford or sustain, and then leave people high and dry when the money runs out. Or mandate major non-voluntary public funding i.e. tax hikes. Sounds like a government plan. Well, six good men is a place to start.
