Bastiat vs Obama

From Neal Boortz...


I found this in the regular Friday missive from the Georgia Public Policy Foundation. First we have a quote from one of my favorite books: "The Law," and then we have a quote from hyper-leftie Michelle Obama. Have fun.

Then: "The war against illegal plunder has been fought since the beginning of the world. But how is... legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish this law without delay ... If such a law is not abolished immediately it will spread, multiply and develop into a system." - Frédéric Bastiat

Now: "The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more." - Michelle Obama
