What Politicians Really Mean...

A few helpful translations from Joseph Sobran to help decipher what politicians really mean via the Adam Smith Institute Blog:

"Need" now means wanting someone else's money. "Greed" means wanting to keep your own. "Compassion" is when a politician arranges the transfer.
(H/T Greg Mankiw) Sadly, I was thinking of tagging it as being humour, but it's unfortunately all too true.
