An American Dream?

Pravda's editorial board, err the Ragister, is praising CommieTommie Harkin

All should share in America's prosperity

Harkin's pushing a social(ist) contract based on FDR's Second Bill of Rights.

The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

The right of every family to a decent home;

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

The right to a good education.

Besides the quandary of who's going to pay for it all, and the scientific community is united in that fact, these rights(?) sound eerily similar to those expressed in the Soviet Constitution which guaranteed to the Soviet citizens the right to work, rest and leisure, health protection, care in old age and sickness, housing, education, and cultural benefits.

I have to say NYET, Comrade.
