The Obama Way

The Obama Way
Tom Bethell’s important 1998 book, The Noblest Triumph:
“Nationalization has been discredited, but it has been replaced by a more insidious philosophy.  The owner retains title, but is saddled with taxes, impositions, and regulations that might in some cases have seemed excessive to feudal tenants.  Contract is here and there yielding it crucial gains to status.  Individual rights are threatened by the privileges associated with group membership.”

OUR HOPEY-CHANGEY ECONOMY: “Our drop from 8.1% unemployment to 7.3% is analogous to losing 20 pounds by cutting off a body part.”
