If the left loses their minds this badly over a $350 bottle of wine…

by wfgodbold

Just think how nuts they’d go if the GOP rented Lichtenstein for their next big shindig!

If he’s not expensing it, I don’t particularly care if Paul Ryan is drinking $30 wine, $300 wine, or $3000 wine. It’s his money, he can spend it on whatever he wants.

Assuming he doesn’t want incandescent light bulbs; that would just be a waste!

I should have put this quote in my last post, but it’s just as appropriate here:

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely 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.

What else is saying what people can and can’t buy (because it would waste their money) but tyranny for the good of the victims?

  1. And that, right there, is pretty much the primary difference between liberals and conservatives, anti-rights and pro-rights advocates, progressives and those who know better… We believe that people’s lives, and the products of those lives (whatever they may be), are theirs to do with as they please, so long as their actions do not harm someone else.

    On the other hand, and at the other end of the political spectrum, are those who believe everyone else is too stupid to know what to do with their lives, their money, and their property, and that they must be guided and helped to know what to do.

    Ever note how they are not volunteering for the same kind of ‘assistance’ themselves?

    • I don’t remember where I first saw it, but the adage that socialism is feudalism with the “right” people in charge rings true.

      They don’t need that kind of assistance; they already make the “right” decisions. You can tell because they have the “right” opinions.
