Quote of the Week


Here's juicy bit: "The government doesn't create jobs. Let's get this notion out of our heads that the government creates jobs. Not in the history of mankind has the government ever created a job." -- Michael Steele, current chair of the RNC

We saw that on TV one evening this past week and G-Dog, who is a professor and has been employed by the University of Tennessee for close to 20 years, turned to me and said merely, "oh, really?"

Government does create jobs, but not (self-)sustainable ones. You need a good mix of private enterprise and government. Just one or the other will never do. Government just doesn't generate the profits necessary, and private enterprise cannot ignore its bottom line.

The RNC is off the rails.

Michael Steele appears to be a moron.
