Megan McArdle At The Daily Beast: ‘Is Obama Turning America Into France?’

Full piece here.

Sacre bleu!

McArdle’s friend Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry:

‘America currently finds itself in a place which is very strange for Americans, and very familiar to Europeans: mass unemployment, young and marginal workers struggling, government and big business expanding hand-in-hand, a nagging sense of a dimming horizon. America’s mass unemployment ought to be cyclical–with strong pick-up growth, it can go back to pre-crisis levels. But that’s a big if, and the odds are even lower with well-intentioned regulations that make it harder to hire and harder to grow a business.

So yes, at the risk of looking like one of those guys waving a placard with Lenin’s face on it and shouting “Socialism!”–the Francification of America is a real thing, and Obama is doing it. And it’s very bad’

Don’t worry, who needs a dynamic economy?

Perhaps freedom fries were a little much, and the dastardly Fuckaire is a little over the top, but I can’t resist:

Liberte does not mean the same thing as liberty, for various social, political, philosophical and cultural reasons.  We can and have done much better.

    She is so apologetic. If companies have to provide health benefits when they have 50 or more full-time employees then they will stay under 50 or employ more part-time employees – duh!
