The next Democrat complaining about Ayn Rand’s wordiness should be slapped upside the head with the Senate’s health care bill.
Stephen, you have forgotten, or worse, are blatantly disregarding, PJ Rule #4: “Threats are treated seriously and reported to law enforcement”. I mean, you could kill someone by hitting them in the head something heavy!
Pajamas Media regrets the error. While also seriously digging the idea.
Damn. he beat me to it.
umm yea, i dig that idea as well. that thing could do some real damage….no pun intended.

A work of fiction is not the same as something that works in fiction. Bad analogy on your part, though I may be defensive because I think Ayn Rand’s writing is too boring to justify its word count. If I’m going to read escapist fiction, I prefer wizards and magic swords rather than machines that produce unlimited energy. Such things in novels tend to lead to boring moral lessons rather than interesting plotlines.
The real escapist fiction is the notion that spending over 1 Trillion Dollars in New Spending will lower the deficit. Now that is FICTION.
About as fictional as lowering taxes to increase revenue while subsequently spending the money that isn’t there yet? That really lowered that deficit. This budget is completely shot and has been for decades (really, the only reason Clinton got credit for balancing the budget was because the first Bush raised some taxes,) but at least the healthcare proposals of 2009 are funded somewhat. That’s more than can be said about the expansion of drug coverage under Medicare, which wasn’t a horrible socialist unconstitutional thing and was probably funded by the same imaginary, off-the-record budget as the Iraq and Afghanistan military actions.
We get to keep the money from lowered taxes. The money going towards Obamacare, not so much.

That’s nice. Run along now.
I think the health care bill would give Atlas a hernia.
