SEC, lies and Ayn Rand

Those wonderful folks who bought you ENRON must be jumping for joy over George Bush's picking of California Congressman Chris Cox to be head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Cox who is a fan of Ayn Rand would be well to remember these thoughts from her as he makes his decsions on the Commission:

"Upper classes are a nation's past; the middle class is its future. "

And when he is in the White House he might remind George Bush of another of her thoughts :

"Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. "

By the way is Baghdad burning?
