"Survival of the Fattest"

This statue by Jens Glaschiot contains the inscription, "I'm sitting on the back of a man. He is sinking under the burden. I would do anything to help him. Except stepping down from his back."

It's a wonderful work of art. And fascinating to me how so many different political parties assume Glaschiot's words back their opposing causes.

Speaking of which, I am now a regular contributor to the wonderful site, humblelibertarian.com. Go check out my first two posts about Sarah Palin and Spock.
