RIP, Margaret Thatcher

April 8, 2013

Upon finding out that Margaret Thatcher died this morning, this quote from Thomas Sowell’s Basic Economics* came to mind:

“The last President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, is said to have asked British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher: How do you see to it that people get food? The answer was that she didn’t. Prices did that.”

RIP, Margaret Thatcher. You will be missed.

  1. So if Thatcher supported all those things (and I said “if” because we all know O’Donnell could be piecing junk together), then why are the liberals dancing on her grave?

  2. I suspect because there are two main groups of people in the UK: those that are to the left, and those that are waaaay to the left (compared to the USA), and those two groups don’t like each other much.

    I doubt Republicans would have voted for her if she were in the US.
