Big Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

It gives me a headache reading about the "stimulus": I guess it's from trying to make sense of something that is hopelessly non-sensical. Only the federal government would think it's a good idea to "bail out" bankrupt organizations when the government itself is trillions of dollars in debt.

It's the kind of thinking that Ayn Rand wrote about in Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. Herb has been listening to Atlas Shrugged on his MP-3 player. He and I first read it in the early '80s. He's says it's even more relevant now. Parts of it sound like the evening news.

"Will You Be Able to Retire? An 8-Point Check List" is an article I received today from Gary North. Just a little warning--the answer is probably "no". In fact, you'll probably need to get a second income.

Normally this article would only be available to subscribers. He is opening it to everyone for one week.
