    Government Creates Poverty

    5/1/11 John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

    The U.S. government has “helped” no group more than it has “helped” the American Indians. It stuns me when President Obama appears before Indian groups and says things like, “Few have been ignored by Washington for as long as Native Americans.”

    Ignored? Are you kidding me? They should be so lucky. The government has made most Indian tribes wards of the state. Government manages their land, provides their health care, and pays for housing and child care. Twenty different departments and agencies have special “native American” programs. The result? Indians have the highest poverty rate, nearly 25 percent, and the lowest life expectancy of any group in America. Sixty-six percent are born to single mothers.

    Nevertheless, Indian activists want more government “help.”

    It is intuitive to assume that, when people struggle, government “help” is the answer. The opposite is true. American groups who are helped the most, do the worst.

    Consider the Lumbees of Robeson County — a tribe not recognized as sovereign by the government and therefore ineligible for most of the “help” given other tribes. The Lumbees do much better than those recognized tribes.

    Lumbees own their homes and succeed in business. They include real estate developer Jim Thomas, who used to own the Sacramento Kings, and Jack Lowery, who helped start the Cracker Barrel Restaurants. Lumbees started the first Indian-owned bank, which now has 12 branches.

    The Lumbees’ wealth is not from casino money.

    “We don’t have any casinos. We have 12 banks,” says Ben Chavis, another successful Lumbee businessman. He also points out that Robeson County looks different from most Indian reservations.


    Freedom lets them prosper.

    John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network. He’s the author of “Give Me a Break” and of “Myth, Lies, and Downright Stupidity.”

    John Stossel So Sick Of ABC’s Liberal Bias, He ‘Begged’ Fox to Hire Him

    2012


    Journalist John Stossel left the liberal confines of ABC News "because it sucked there." The libertarian reporter talked to the Heritage Foundation's Rob Bluey in an interview posted Thursday and exposed the liberal culture at his former network: "They were hostile to these ideas that have made us prosperous and I consider so important."

    He added that ABC "tolerated" him and his good ratings, "But by the end, they were sort of saying, 'Oh, you're predictable, Stossel. All you want to do is libertarian economics all the time. I don't want to watch that.'" He joked that ABC preferred to do stories on how "[Michael Jackson's] still dead."

    Stossel admitted that he was "not offered a job by Fox." He added, "I went over and begged, 'Please hire me. I can't stand it anymore.'"

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Whenever the name Stossel comes up, that's the first thing that pops into my head.

    Television is not about programming, it's about advertising.

    Because if there is one thing that liberals hate more than conservatives - it is libertarians.
    Stossel has devoted a number of his shows about the failure of the education system from top to bottom - showing solid data that proves that the more government gives into the system, the more the system fails. Never more true than K-12.
    Education is the bastion of liberals. It is their home base. It is an abysmal failure. They don't like to be reminded of it.
