Obama’s wildest dreams

Tax-subsidized vacations as a “basic human right.”

Via the American Spectator Blog, Doug Bandow notes:

America is just so, so far behind Europe.  How do we live with ourselves?

Indeed.  Forcing people to work for their vacations is so … passé.  From the Times of London story:

AN overseas holiday used to be thought of as a reward for a year’s hard work. Now Brussels has declared that tourism is a human right and pensioners, youths and those too poor to afford it should have their travel subsidised by the taxpayer.

Under the scheme, British pensioners could be given cut-price trips to Spain, while Greek teenagers could be taken around disused mills in Manchester to experience the cultural diversity of Europe.

What happens when the government runs out of other people’s money to redistribute and the masses don’t get their free candy they’ve come to expect? 

Greek police ready to beat down the mobs angry about the loss of free candy. (And they don't even know about their new human right to a vacation yet!)

  1. I’d like a vacation from filling out my tax forms. What are my chances?

    • ROTFL. Let’s sign up, QR. Do you think Geithner will give us a cruise?

      I have two degrees in English and am confounded each year by the verbiage that’s intentionally designed to obfuscate meaning. I dream of flat-rate, file on a postcard taxes. Sigh.
