“The top 25 hedge fund managers made more than all the kindergarten teachers in the country,” declared President Obama in a discussion of poverty at Georgetown University. Calling them “society’s lottery winners,” he proposed to hike their taxes. Predictably, battle lines have been formed between two polarized sides. One side—let’s call them the Gauche for […]
Obama appears to believe that there’s no difference between a racist and totalitarian government like Iran wielding a nuclear weapon and a largely rights-respecting government like Israel (or the United States) having nuclear weapons.
