      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Cute Glenn Beck Quote

Glenn got himself befuddled during a plug for Goldline and came out with the statement quoted below.

This was on the first hour of his radio show of March 21, 2012 at around the 50 minute mark. I just heard it.

The context was that he was warning people about the weakness of the economy with the subtext that gold is a sound sturdy hedge agaist capital manipulations by the people wrecking the economy. And from the way he continued, he didn't realize his goof.

Paper is not worth the money that it's printed on.

I like that inversion even if it was a goof.

Paper is now worth more than money, so much so that we need to be warned about it's value instead of money's value.

Ain't it so true? Maybe not strictly, but that's sure the way it feels.

So that's why the new bills look like monopoly money!
