Milton Friedman - the four ways to spend money



This is basic stuff and makes a lot of sense to me. Why is it so difficult for some people to understand that spending other people's money on other people is ultimately to the detriment of everyone? I heard someone say Barack Obama doesn't want to be the president-- he just wants to play one on TV. Well, easy for Barry to be jocular and flippant when it's not his money on the line. Now he's got the presidential pen, he'll get under the hood and fiddle with shit until what ain't broke is, and irretrievably so at that.

That's what pisses me off the most... They act like it's thier money and it's not! it OUR damn money! We're the one's who've worked for it Damnit!

Obama doesn't know the value of money and he has never held any kind of job in the private sector. He has been paid to be a stuff shirt and mouthpiece for his entire lousy career.

Yeah, he has the pen, but I'm beginning to think it spends more time digging in his ear than anywhere else.

Not good news... He'd be better off playing one than being one... It doesn't bode well for us, or our children and grandchildren! We need to throw the bums out in 2010, and him in 2012!

Of course Obama's pretty profiligate with the money; he doesn't "have any skin in the game"!
