    Great oped piece from 2009 Wall Street Journal at above URL. See if you don't find it even more accurate now than it was then.

    If you haven't yet read the book, do so now. If you have, read it again now that you've watched Obuma and the Progressives try to destroy this country just like the politicians in the book did. A gentleman PMed me the other day to say that he had read it 7 times. Sounds like a lot, but it's not too many.

    Stephen Moore is always right on the money. You can read that any way you like.

    Somebody has read Atlas Shrugged 7 times?!! He must be very old or be a very fast reader :)

    GW22 I am both old and a fast reader. The first time I read the book I was 17 years old I will be 65 in December. The parallels between our economic climate and those of the book over the ensuing years since I first read the book give me cold chills.

    The article is from 2009, but it just gets truer and truer with this administration.
