Freedom's Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose

"The ransom of a man's life is his riches, but the poor hear no threats." Prov 13:8

Peggy Noonan, afraid of losing her wealth of friends and funds, joins other so-called Conservative pundits in distancing herself from the clear thinking Sarahs and Joes.

Well, neither Sarah Palin's paycheck nor Joe W's paycheck even reaches Obama's baseline of "wealth" so maybe that's why they can speak the truth so plainly. They've not yet learned, as have McCain and Obama, to measure their words in monetary terms.

What are you going to threaten a poor man with, anyway? Making exhaling a crime?
