Arizona made national news again, but it was not necessarily in a good way. My sister back in Indiana called me last week.

I have written before about Obama appointing 33 czars, to act as central planners. Central planners are required in communist countries, because the government needs to direct policy for all businesses. When we move from capitalism to communism you need to be aware of the differences. In capitalism all businesses work to make their business efficient, so they can compete in the market. In communism the effort is to be inefficient, so they can hire a lot of workers. Obama is going to direct his czars to audit each company, then set their workers salaries (usually 30-50 percent lower). The czars will then require each company to hire 30-50 percent more workers than needed. This will make each company much more inefficient, but because there is no competition it doesn’t matter how efficient you are.

Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
Big screen. Big effects. Big budget. Big box office.
