Pay Attention

Watch this video a moment:


Now, the video is about watching out for bicyclists while you are driving, but there’s a good correlary.  This video demonstrates how easy it is to let someone distract you.  It’s the typical slight of hand trick, make you focus on one thing and make it look like something else is either not happening or happening magically… like a shell-game.  Congress is good at this.  Case in point, the housing bill passed yesterday [1].  Everyone is focused on the big items in the bill, but so many little things are happening in there that no one is paying attention to.  No one seems to be making a fuss about the recapture on the $7,500 tax credit.

If Congress (or any politician) or the MSM says “Look at this!”, beware, there’s something else going on.
