Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

Taxes and Jobs

Reason.tv takes on California.  A must-watch.

Probably the most maddening trend of the last couple of years is watching politicians refuse to learn about job creation.  They keep borrowing and spending and it keeps not working.  And their response is to just keep trying the same old tactics.  Keynsians and their sympathizers insist this has to work at some point and, as it doesn’t, fall back on “it would be worse” arguments.  But every dollar borrowed by the government is a dollar not borrowed by a business.  And businesses aren’t spooked from investment by the economic situation; they’re spooked by the political one.

At some point, maybe somebody will try doing nothing.
