Thomas Sowell Brings the World into Focus through an Economics Lens

Out-takes:

Dodd – Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Proteection Act to promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and…transparency in the financial system and to end ‘too big to fail.” _Signed into law by President Obama, July 21, 2010

Asked if he was in favor of that:

Sowell: “I’m in favor of a million things that are said in preambless.  It’s when you get into the actual text of the law that the problems begin.. video at 18:45 for the problems that begin.

Should Obamacare be fixed or repealed outright?

Sowell: “Repealed outright; that would fix it.”

Graced to Be

I offer You, O Lord,
The ground of my being,
The deep from wither
My thoughts and prayers arise.

O Holy Spirit,
Hover over the abyss within,
To grace the land
Rising out of my chaos,
Like the signal blessing
Of the dove of peace,
And a new beginning
Over the waters
After the Flood.

Free me from sin and disorder,
That my unique soul
May shout for joy,
Even for the wonder
That I am,
That You rejoice
To reveal me to be
In true humility,
That I may awaken
To give You due
Honor and praise.

Break up the clods
Of my ignorance
And self-satisfaction.
Plow my field cross hatch,
Plant my furrows with gospel seed.
Water me
That I may be a garden
Of hidden delights,
And a comfort to You
In Your rest.
