For John, BLUF: Governments shouldn't be picking winners and losers. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at the blog Points and Figures Mr Jeffrey Carter, an angel investor and independent trader, asks the question "Why Is There Such High Unemployment In Illinois?".
Yes, the solution proposed by Mr Carter is less Government and more freedom and independence for entrepreneurs.
Of course, it is easy to pick on Illinois, since it is likely to be Detroit on steroids, given the overhang of public employee pension costs.
Of course the Governor of Illinois, Mr Pat Quinn, is the jerk who compared Black Republicans with Jews who collaborated with Nazis and no one in the main stream media cared.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
