Social Engineering Is and Ever WIll Be A Big Fat Fail

In President Obama's State of the Union this month, he proposed the creation of hubs for manufacturing research. It seems the idea is to revitalize decimated cities and geographies, such as  Detroit and Youngstown, OH, by setting up research hubs dedicated to developing super-high-tech manufacturing. This kind of thing just doesn't work. Government incentives can't make people--especially the kind of upwardly mobile people who are likely to invent the future of anything--live in places they don't want to live. It's a waste and a boondoggle.

Opposing wishful thinking like this is the job of true conservatives.
