Atlas Shrugs

Uber Josh provides this callous statement by the Ayn Rand Institute.

As the death toll mounts in the areas hit by Sunday's tsunami in southern Asia, private organizations and individuals are scrambling to send out money and goods to help the victims. Such help may be entirely proper, especially considering that most of those affected by this tragedy are suffering through no fault of their own.

The United States government, however, should not give any money to help the tsunami victims. Why? Because the money is not the government's to give.

MOST? Did someone cause an earthquake?

In a way, to use my best Ayn Rand type-thought, who gives a shit what they think?

However, when am I going to have a chance to use a title like that again?
