Common Sense

Thomas Sowell shares his common sense with us re our spending, stimulus, "real taxes", rent control and gun control. One key point:

"Some of our biggest political fallacies come from accepting words as evidence of realities. "Rent control" laws do not control rent and "gun control" laws do not control guns.

The big cities with the tightest rent control laws in the nation are New York and San Francisco. The nation's highest rents are in New York and the second-highest are in San Francisco."

If you want to understand why this is the case, read the column here.

Understanding the mis-used "words", particularly from the left, is important grasp if you care what the future holds!
