More Random Sowell

The article I linked to yesterday with random observations by economist and political commentator extraordinaire Thomas Sowell is so full of gems, that I decided to have another post dedicated to it.  Here are two more reasons why I love Thomas Sowell:
Because many of us make mistakes that can have bad consequences, some intellectuals believe that it is the role of government to intervene and make some of our decisions for us. From what galaxy government is going to hire creatures who do not make mistakes is a question they leave unanswered.
One of the reasons it has taken so long for some people to finally see through Barack Obama is that people do not like to admit, even to themselves, that they have been played for fools by a slick-talking politician.
