Ayn Rand in a nutshell


Icon from the Tango Desktop projectThis is the greatest thing I've read in a long time.

Critics of Social Security and Medicare frequently invoke the words and ideals of author and philosopher Ayn Rand, one of the fiercest critics of federal insurance programs. But a little-known fact is that Ayn Rand herself collected Social Security. She may also have received Medicare benefits.

The Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights also has a page on their website entitled Social Security is Immoral. Me thinks we'll be seeing a revision soon to include an exception clause. Sounds like if Santa was a programmer. Bad joke, sorry.
