Incentives

November 16, 2013

I don’t listen to talk radio and I don’t live in Texas, so I don’t know whether this call really happened. But I take the recording at face value because it’s so easily believable. When you subsidize something, you get more of it.

The part of the call that was most ludicrous was the caller ranting about illegal aliens being free riders on the American system. That really pegged the old Irony Meter; has she heard of "the pot calling the kettle black"?

Plus she implied that migrants are as shiftless as she is. As I said, I don’t live in Texas. But in these parts migrant workers are some of the hardest-working people I see.
