  •  Reminds me of Craig T. Nelson (4+ / 0-)

    He was cricizing the bailout, saying "I was on food stamps, and no one did anything for me." Or the people who say "I don't want government health care, but don't touch my Medicare!"

    They really think like that. When something benefits them, they recognize that they have received a benefit. When someone else gets that same benefit, they are up in arms.

    He gets power from Hoover Dam, built by the government. He drives on government roads, government police will come if his house gets broken into, government fire fighters will come if his house gets broken into. Government sailors patrol our coasts.

    His libertarian paradise reminds me of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. In that libertarian paradise, workers burned or jumped to their deaths during a fire, because the doors were locked and they couldn't get out. Now we have those pesky government workplace safety standards.

    The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
