Difference Between the Private Sector and the Government Vector

THERE SEEMS to be a bottom line when it comes to the private verses public sectors in many aspects of our post-modern lives. The private is more flexible, lithe and fluid while the government wants to cast everything into controllable concrete. One is full of happy and sad surprises, personal responsibility and change while the other labors under dowdy laboriousness, standardization and equality of results all while taking itself far too seriously. One interests me greatly while the other bores the stew outta me. You know which is which.

If nothing else, socialism would bore many of us to death. So there's less chance of it than in the olden days before the Internet. Obama and Rahm Emmanuel send cold, dark, stark concrete-like shivers through my body and soul.

The private sector and competitive market forces, not the federal government, are the best means to meeting our country’s rapidly expanding health care needs. One of the things I think we can do to help make that happen is support American businesses and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (http://bit.ly/oanAT). They’re doing things to reach out and show people that they can get involved, too.
