The Obama of Id


(click on the image to embiggen)

...why does anyone need to work if Obama delivers all he's promised?

The question reveals the unreality of his rhetoric.

If you haven't read Ayn Rand's classic
Atlas Shrugged then do yourself a favour.

She uses the term 'looters' for those who take money from, and impose ever more restrictive rules on, the most productive elements of society, the elements that actually create sustainable jobs and increase our standard of living.

If there's ever been a better word to describe what the Obama administration is doing with its 'stimulus' bill then I haven't seen it.

Unfortunately for Australia it also describes what the Rudd government is doing; looting future generations for short term political expediency.

Do-somethingism really is a curse. All sides of politics suffer from it.

I'll read Atlas Shrugged as recommended. My read literature has always been so. I'll give a critique when finished.
