Found this Thomas Sowell column from April 14, 2009, pinned to my wall today. Reread it and there is so much "common sense" in it - a commodity that is becoming non existent in our society, that I thought I would share it again!

Titled "Magic Words in Politics", it skewers the lefts of terms having the opposite effect of what they claim - and the base just keeps believing it is true! Amazing!

This paragraph pretty much summarizes it:

"Abraham Lincoln once asked an audience how many legs a dog has if you count the tail as a leg. When they answered "five," Lincoln told them that the answer was four. the fact that you called the tail a leg did not make it a let."

Can you say "investment", when they mean "taxes"?
