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?
