“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”     C. S. Lewis

Quote Of The Day

by Doug Mataconis

Gennady Zyuganov, the head of the Russian Communist Party, gives a thumbs up to Obama-nomics.

“I said that I had thoroughly studied the U.S. president’s anti-crisis program, that I liked it, as well as that it is socially oriented and primarily aimed at supporting poor people and enhancing the state’s role. I said all this to President Obama,” he said.

Sort of makes you think, huh ?

  1. Oh, creepy old Zyuganov. Reminds me of when Zhirnovsky said Pat Buchanon was a good candidate. :D

  2. Yes, it does. In the same way that the white supremacists made me rethink voting for Ron Paul.

    … oh wait, it didn’t. That’s because someone agreeing with your policies doesn’t mean you agree with theirs.

    If you’re really trying to imply Obama is a communist because some Russian communist agrees with his policies, I think you need to read up on logical fallacies. Like there’s not enough reasons to dislike Obama besides some lame guilt-by-association attempt.
