Yawn … No surprise there. Or I should say I am never surprised by the protectionist warriors using their position to enrich themselves at the expense of others and insisting that no one be able to enjoy the fruits of the market. They cannot stand the fact that ordinary people – the riff raff to them – enjoy so much for so little because there are people/workers out there who are willing to make what the people want – without government telling them to do so …

File this one in the “What’s new/Business as usual” file.

However, I did find it interesting to read the post just beneath the one that is the topic above. A post that will make DG Lesvic happy and bolster the truth in his favorite comment.

“These results tend to support earlier findings that beyond core functions of government responsibility—including the protection of liberty itself—the expansion of the state to provide for various entitlements, including so-called economic, social, and cultural rights, may not make people richer in the long run and may even make them poorer.”
