Expensive Gas Is Not the Worst Thing . . .



No gas is much worse.








For the past few years public policy in this state and nation have been galloping forward to embrace the failed policies of the 1970s. This year much of the election rhetoric is about which candidate can get us there faster. Michael Barone had a column earlier this year that may explain this: “Voters elect one kind of government, and then get disgusted with the results. New voters, taking the good things of the present for granted and ignorant of the bad things of the past, are willing to take unusual risks.”


So maybe the generations who have come along since 1980 just need to discover for themselves the joys of double digit inflation and unemployment, 21 percent interest rates, and – no gas.
