Bonus Quotation of the Day…

Tweet [1]

… is from George Will’s latest column [2]:

[P]rogressivism is … a top-down, continent-wide tissue of taxes, mandates and other coercions.

Yep – and one that, by it’s very nature, crushes true diversity.

(I do, though, disagree with Will that F.D.R. was a “grown-up.”  Burt Folsom’s 2008 study, New Deal or Raw Deal? [3], makes plain that F.D.R. was an arrogant and economically illiterate scoundrel.  H.L. Mencken’s post-1933 essays on F.D.R. reveal the very same about the power-greedy scion of Hyde Park.)
