It is. I was mostly horrified by this creeps explicitly evil psychological outlook.
About the min wage laws, I was thinking the other day how they are almost completely responsible for unemployment. There are tons of things that people might hire for at $4/hour or $2/hour and ridiculous amounts of jobs at .35/ hour. (I could use some help with keeping my garage tidy.) The lowest price that an employer can find someone to work for eliminates the last involuntarily unemployed person. That true market based minimum wage is kept low by hamstringing businesses with regulations and tax burdens, environmental and otherwise, but the true cause of unemployment is the minimum wage.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
...or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings;
but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause,
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly.
So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.-Teddy
