Compare and contrast


This graphic rather made me chuckle.  It’s aimed at the American audience but most people who live in western social democratic type countries will notice many similarities with their own criminal gang running things.

If you know a statist this new year (and who doesn’t) given them a link to this simple graphic and watch ‘em splutter.

On a personal note, I might add ~ when anyone else makes ignorant ‘health’ pronouncements I ignore them at no cost to me, where as when HMG does it, I am of course paying to be lectured.  Similarly, if anyone else tells me windmills are the way to power the grid I laugh, whereas when HMG make the same point, I drive past loads of ‘em that I am again, forced to pay for.

    Funnily enough, I was having a conversation in the car with someone a few weeks ago about ‘quantitive easing’, and how if I tried it it’d be called ‘forgery’.

    The post is bang totally correct on all other counts, of course.

    Counterfeiting is a form of forgery.

    Or the difference is a technical one – which need not detain us.
