|I remember so well how a guest on that occasion wondered what Ayn would have to say about taxes being 'too high'. Ayn retorted without hesitation, "80$ is not too high if the issue is defense for yoursurvival, but fot most other things 20% is much too high."|
Her words about 80% have worn their way into my mind through repetition, in connection with the current Iraq affair. Of course! If all is at wirk, even 90% is not too high. Whet her she would have thought the Iraq matter was to be counted among the 80% I do not know, but ai suspect that she would have. If the aim of the Islamo-fascists is to get rid of all of us, as they repeatedly declare, and if they have not only the will but the ability (they will have nukes soon enough at any rate), then 80% is not at all too much! People were always thinking that she exaggrated, but as I've said to many people in the intervening years, "I've told you a million times not to exaggerate!"
