Not content with nail biting (their own) over the prospects of health care reform Democrat operatives have begun finger biting (other's). It seems particular unfair to me - this finger tax. Couldn't they just have asked for the shirt off his back? Or a twenty year lease on his first born?
Well actually no one knows if the mysterious stranger with a hunger for human fingers was a Democrat operative. He may have been a moveon.org operative. No one is sure (right now). But the incident is regretted by those who fear the negative publicity.
Ilyse Hogue, the director of political advocacy and communications for the left leaning MoveOn.org, called the incident a “regrettable act of violence.”As far as I know there is no word yet if it detracts from the tens of thousands who were out peacefully making their voices heard AGAINST health care reform and AGAINST a public option.
“While we don’t know if either party involved was a MoveOn member, we regret any violence that may have occurred yesterday, and we support the Ventura County Sheriff’s investigation into the situation. It is our firm hope that this event does not detract from the tens of thousands who were out peacefully making their voices heard for health care reform and a public option.”
No matter what, there is usually a book by someone that can shed light on these matters:
A History of Cannibalism: From Ancient Cultures to Survival Stories And Modern Psychopaths
I think it is especially important for the socialists of various stripes to pay attention to the Psychopaths. They seem to attract an inordinate share of them. Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini.
Although Hayek in The Road to Serfdom says that Socialists always have trouble matching resources to consumers and must inevitably resort to population trimming to bring supply and demand in balance. It is not a bug, it is a feature.
