Why Does CNN/Money Hate Freedom?

I mean the opening is wierd enough:
We Americans pride ourselves on being a hard-working bunch, so here's a thought to spoil your Labor Day rest: By global standards, we're lazy. We've been getting lazier. And the days of the American dolce vita may be numbered.

The surprising report of our relative sloth arrives in new research from the UN's International Labor Organization, which looks at working hours around the world. When it comes to what we might call hard work, meaning the proportion of workers who put in more than 48 hours a week, America is near the bottom of the heap. About 18% of our employed people work that much.

[ cf Are Americans too lazy? ]
But the Real Money Shot is the sub heading half way through the article with the assertion:
Is America falling apart? Ask Ayn Rand
WOW!!!!

Go Team America!!!!

Ah yes, can there be any more doubt that NOW more than evere WE MUST privatize Zombie Hunting to keep america American!!!
