So the president is objecting to his picture being used for commercial purposes on a billboard? Ok, it's silly to think that the most famous man in American can control his image like that, but if that's your policy, fine. But then what was appearing in a commercial for George Lopez's talk show all about? Given the quality of the show, maybe Obama considers that charity work?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
