    Fifty Brilliant Thomas Sowell Reflections

    Loved these, from a brilliant man.

    http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/27/fifty-brilliant-thomas-sowell-reflections/

    My favorites....

    “If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today.”

    “The real minimum wage is zero.”

    “Elections should be held on April 16th—the day after we pay our income taxes. That is one of the few things that might discourage politicians from being big spenders.”

    “Helping those who have been struck by unforeseeable misfortunes is fundamentally different from making dependency a way of life.”

    “The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.”

    “I have never understood why it is ‘greed’ to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”

    Thomas Sowell and the word "brilliant" don't belong in the same paragraph. He was and is an unoriginal lapdog of the Friedmanites who has desperately opposed every single attempt to make this country a little more bearable for the working class.

    As expected from a lefty. I for one think he is one of the great thinkers.

    I'm reasonably certain that CB had never heard of Thomas Sowell until he stumbled across this article in the daily caller, a dues paying member of the far right blogosphere.
