    Slaves don't get that choice. Slaves are property.

    There's a giant chasm between taxation and slavery.

    Yeah...

    I'm going to go with the interring of Japanese, German, and Italian Citizens as being a worse thing

    Are any of them good, when we're talking of government control? I think not.

    When have you done that?

    But news wasn't the issue. It was the hyperbolic use of the word slavery. It was humorous. Most people laugh at humor. I laugh when I read Dr. Carson here (also not fact based news).

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You think that Carson was making a joke?

    No. I just think his statement works better as Satire. It is a hyperbolic over the top statement.

    Even as satire I'm having a hard time imagining what purpose it serves, unless he was trying to say, "Boy our side sure does have some crazy, uneducated mofos, am I right?"

    Well, he is making himself and them the butt of the joke, much as Glen Beck did. He too worked only as satire, but satire of his side.
