Crazy Things of the Economy that the Government Needs to Regulate?
Yes ... the government uses EVERY study they can to find reasons to start up "businesses" ... which is really, the federal Government taking money from private industry/businesses so that they can fund themselves.  Think about your children - ask around.  How many surveys do they take part in? Why? Who is it for?  Who is better at educating your child - YOU? or the state?

#1 - Gambling
#2 - Fish to feed the Sharks
#3 - Off Track Betting
#5 - "without regulations, this industry would cause a great deal of crime"
#6 - People DO get themselves into trouble

Remember : Free Market Priciples... allow people to have the opportunity to fail.

Franklin on Poverty: 
You know one of my favorite quotes on poverty comes from Benjamin Franklin. I love this quote: We should make the poor uncomfortable and kick them out of poverty." I love that! There's compassion for ya. He knew if you made poverty more comfortable, there's a lot of people that would be like, you know what, I'm just going to kick back here. I'm just going to -- you know what I -- I'm going to sit back and, you know, let the state give me a candle ...
