Galt's Gulch, South Carolina
Readers of this blog will recognize that I am not a fan of Ayn Rand. Therefore, it's somewhat distressing to read news reports that move me to say "Here's a case where Ayn Rand was prescient." I'm referring to the attempts by the National Labor Relations Board to tell the Boeing Corporation it cannot manufacture its airplanes in South Carolina. This is outrageous. The NLRB ought to be added to the list of federal agencies (EPA, FCC) where the power of the purse of Congress should be used to reign in abuses of federal power over economic activity. To go further, I suggest a sweeping re-examination of all of the Progressive Frankenbureaus who believe that they can order Americans around outside of the originally-understood concepts of separation of powers.
