"Those Who Can, Do,...

...those who can't, teach," the old saying goes. These days it should be "those who can are forced to put up with those who merely think and talk." The jabbering class -- which resides on Capitol Hill, and in the media, universities, and so-called knowledge professions -- talks a good game, but most of its members aren't equipped to play the real game of life. They thrive only when they have the power of government on their side. That is why they try so avidly to control it, shape its rules, and divert tax dollars to their causes.

If we truly had constitutional government and laissez-faire capitalism, most members of the jabbering class would be begging on corners. And they wouldn't do it very well.
