I got a check in mail Thursday. The ladder brought a dollar. The auctioneer kept a quarter and gave me 75 cents. It reminded me of something I found out a long time ago. When you’re looking to sell something, what you think it’s worth isn’t nearly as important as what the person looking to buy it thinks it’s worth.
The politicians and bureaucrats up in Washington seem to think the federal government and what it’s trying to sell is worth a lot more than a lot of people out here think it’s worth.
And luckily, a growing number of people just aren’t buying it anymore.
