Re: Mitt Romney is a Ferengi

Meh. The Ferengi's in the right, this time, brother.

Still, as I've often pointed out, Ferenginar's actually got big government oversight, as the FCA would tell you, with their by-laws--or the Nagus, who hands out opportunites like synthehol in the Gamma Quadrant. Or the standard Ferengi contract....

Nonetheless...Quark was on to something, noting how the income tax goes against the spirit of free enterprise. One wonders if it was Ishka's idea, or the Congress of Economic Meddlers and their desire to mold the favors system their way.
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
