Obama vs. Nat Taggart

Yesterday and Today, the media has been abuzz with Obama's 'lets play with trains' statement. You can see that here.

Which got me to wondering, why in the name of all that is socialist and unholy does he want to subsidize another ailing and failing industry??? Well I guess I had no further to look than the book that I've been struggling with for a couple (sigh.. four) months now: Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand.

I do know that Atlas Shrugged basically spells out the leftist / socialist / communist manifesto, I forgot that the main character of the book is a railroad tycoon. Maybe while BarryO was reading Atlas Shrugged (and ignoring the MEANING of the book while MISINTERPRETING the good versus evil struggle in the book) he decided that, like the Taggarts, he should have a railroad to play with...
