The Human Right to Room Service

No matter how fast Obama Europeanizes America, you can’t out-Euro the Euros.

The European Union’s Commissioner for Enterprise and Industry declares that there is a “human right to be tourists” and proposes government-funded vacations, initially for “seniors, youths between the ages of 18 and 25, disabled people, and families facing ‘difficult social, financial or personal’ circumstances”. But what about imams and transsexuals?

Next to this, Obama transferring those four Uighurs to a beach in Bermuda is pretty small beer. C’mon, Nancy, Harry, I’m sure the CBO could run the numbers and calculate that having 100 million Americans out of the country sipping margaritas in Tahiti significantly reduces the deficit.
