Reagan’s Assumption September 28, 2008

Posted by Jim Satterfield in Government, Politics.

One of my Firefox gadgets is for Quote of the Day. Here is one of the ones that it came up with today.

The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would hire them away.
Ronald Reagan

Notice the assumption there that the only value held by anyone is greed. Is there supposed to be no one who might care about something called the public good? Not in Republican Land, apparently.

And…I think we can see where the brilliant minds hired by business have gotten us now, can’t we?
