Bill Wyckoff column in Kansas Liberty: another tea party

From KansasLiberty.com:

Time to throw another Tea Party?

Just when I think it isn’t possible for our government to come up with any more ridiculous ways to waste our money and our future, I’m proven completely wrong.

Once upon a time a person’s word was a bond.  Someone says they will do something, it is expected they will do just that.  If you say you’re going to be at work at 8 a.m. but keep coming in at 11, you are going to be fired.  If you tell a neighbor you will watch their pet while they are gone and then don’t, the neighbor is going to be mad when they come home to a dead bird in the cage.

I’ve been involved with deals that didn’t turn out so well in the end.  I became wiser.   I have partnered with groups where the rules changed.  I became smarter. Life is not risk free, and a rich uncle isn’t going to come to my rescue. If I make a mistake, I shouldn’t look beyond the mirror for someone to blame.
