Bonus Quote of the Day:

 

"It was Thomas Edison who brought us electricity, not the Sierra Club. It was the
Wright brothers who got us off the ground, not the Federal Aviation Administration.
It was Henry Ford who ended the isolation of millions of Americans by making the
automobile affordable, not Ralph Nader. Those who have helped the poor the
most have not been those who have gone around loudly expressing 'compassion'
for the poor, but those who found ways to make industry more productive and
distribution more efficient, so that the poor of today can afford things that the affluent
of yesterday could only dream about."
~Thomas Sowell, from his article ‘The Real Public Service
