    What a Great seg­ment! Peo­ple who cre­ate noth­ing and claim that they deserve all the wealth! These same peo­ple prob­a­bly also claim to be Xtians as well, HA!

    I love Atlas Shrugged! The irony is that most often the peo­ple who use Ayn Rand as a jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for low tax­es rarely pro­duce any­thing of val­ue. If only the pun­dits would take their own advice and go on strike.

    The mes­sage here is very insid­i­ous, and very evil; Col­bert is pur­pose­ful­ly mis­rep­re­sent­ing Atlas Shrugged to pro­mote a Social­ist agen­da. But per­haps I give him too much cred­it — to under­stand what it means to pro­duce, to invent some­thing new, is like­ly far beyond some­one like Col­bert, whose only exis­tence is to deride and mock. The very rea­son Rand wrote so prophet­i­cal­ly is because she under­stood the evil of what Col­bert rep­re­sents in this piece. Amer­i­ca is qui­et­ly dying under a sea of applause. Please don’t sup­port it.
