“How many votes do you think a James Madison-type senatorial candidate would get if his campaign theme was something like this: “Elect me to office. I will protect and defend the U.S. Constitution. Because there’s no constitutional authority for Congress spending on the objects of benevolence, don’t expect for me to vote for prescription drugs for the elderly, handouts to farmers and food stamps for the poor. Instead, I’ll fight these and other unconstitutional congressional expenditures.” I’ll tell you how many votes he’ll get: It will be Williams’ vote, and that’s it. “

He’d have mine...

My favorite was from a Limbaugh show long ago when he said his old neighbors from the hood asked him why he moved out and his response was he was tired of bringing his engine in at night!

Here’s Williams’ roadmap out of poverty: Complete high school; get a job, any kind of a job; get married before having children; and be a law-abiding citizen. Among both black and white Americans so described, the poverty rate is in the single digits.

Once I graduated college and started hiring people, I was stunned by how few applied this very simple formula to their lives. Most graduated high school but very few went on to learn a trade. Many bounced from job-to-job but never built any sort of career. Some had garnishments levied that I'd have to collect and pay. Almost none were married, many with bastard kids where I'd have to keep track of child support. Almost all lived from paycheck to paycheck and griped about being poor.

That would make a great Speech for Presidential-Candidate Palin to make.

She would win in a landslide

Christmas this year is going to be a problem. My wife bought one of those hard sucking bagless vacuum cleaners. I won’t be able to give her the next years supply of vacuum cleaner bags for Christmas.

Fortunately, her birthday present of a new ironing board cover is still going to be ok.

WW is as good as it gets.

"If you hear that they've taken Williams's guns, you can be assured that Williams is probably dead".

I do love me some Walter Williams. One of the greatest Americans ever. With no hyphen.

I love how he plays devil’s advocate by saying, “You say, Williams...” He makes everything so understandable, too.

Suppose I hire you to repair my computer. The job is worth $200 to me and doing the job is worth $200 to you. The transaction will occur because we have a meeting of the mind. Now suppose there’s the imposition of a 30 percent income tax on you. That means you won’t receive $200 but instead $140. You might say the heck with working for me — spending the day with your family is worth more than $140. You might then offer that you’ll do the job if I pay you $285. That way your after-tax earnings will be $200 — what the job was worth to you. There’s a problem. The repair job was worth $200 to me, not $285. So it’s my turn to say the heck with it. This simple example demonstrates that one effect of taxes is that of eliminating transactions, and hence jobs.

OK, that was simply beautiful. BTT

Asked if poverty causes crime, Williams said that welfare causes crime.

he said that given the choice between a mugging and paying for welfare, he’d take the mugging, because he didn’t have to listen to Kennedy (teddy) justifying it.

Williams is awesome.

I remember one time when Williams was sitting in for Rush, he said that anytime someone gets an idea that can’t work, never has worked, they always want to try it out on black people.

Walter, like his older buddy Thomas Sowell, is a true gem. Wlater has better comedic impact in his delivery where Thomas is the deeper thinker, IMHO.
