Ayn Rand’s famous character from Atlas Shrugged railed against big government and a nanny state.  Many of us find inspiration in his words and actions to bolster capitalism;

“I ask for nothing more or nothing less than what I earn. That is justice. I don’t force anyone to trade with me; I only trade for mutual benefit. Force is the great evil that has no place in a rational world. One may never force another human to act against his/her judgment. If you deny a man’s right to Reason, you must also deny your right to your own judgment. Yet you have allowed your world to be run by means of force, by men who claim that fear and joy are equal incentives, but that fear and force are more practical.”

Stupid White Man

Even though he may me the most irrelevant rich guy on Earth, I can not help but note Michael Moore’s latest attempt at lucidity.  I did say attempt because he did not achieve anything close to clarity.  On June 1, 2009 Moore expressed his delight at the demise of General Motors, herein called Government Motors.  He claims to be troubled by the expected loss of jobs, but he cannot hold back his elation.
