Random Thought’s by Thomas Sowell
Thomas Sowell is one of this country’s foremost thinkers and writers. Brilliant doesn’t do him justice. Occasionally he shares a column with miscellaneous musings called “Random Thoughts“. The most recent is so good I have to share a few excerpts.
A reader’s response to my column about the mandated change from incandescent light bulbs to CFL bulbs: “It would be far better to exchange the corrupt hacks in Congress for some winos from the Bowery. Such a transition should open a new bright era for America.”
Even if you think our presidential choices this election year are between disgust and disaster, anyone who has ever been through a real disaster can tell you that this difference is not small. It is big enough to go vote on election day.
Unlike most politicians, Barack Obama does not waffle. He comes out boldly, saying mutually contradictory things.
If Barack Obama had given a speech on bowling, it might well have been brilliant and inspiring. But instead he actually tried bowling and threw a gutter ball. The contrast between talking and doing could not have been better illustrated.
