  1. "Don't worry; we'll pick up the slack." It's...strange. When Trump first ran, I was not a fan of his, for a few reasons. But then I saw the over-reactions from others turn into TDS. I started to see through the lies. THEN, I saw MY image of Trump change from Trump the sleazy casino magnet and celebrity apprentice shit-stirrer to Trump the American, the fighter, the patriot, etc. And today, when I heard that he had gone to Walter Reed, my heart dropped. Up until recently, I was concerned about the government protecting the citizens during the riots, etc; Now, I want to protect Trump. I thoug

  2. Have you guys been watching the press trying to frame President Trump with the white supremacy thing? Let's start with the end first, then look at the idiot press. Here is just one compilation among many out there where Trump has disavowed white supremacy, including in the debate two days ago. Also, look at Chris Wallace in the 2016 election. Note that this video is impossible to find doing a simple YouTube search. YouTube and others do not want you to see this. So you can only find it on posts of others who embed it. Compare that to Chris Wallace asking th

  3. I didn’t watch the video. As you know, I rarely watch videos. I'll take your word for it that the material is choke-upping. What I signed on to comment about was Trump's "Thank you, I will never let you down!" He means it. He's fully out to give his all for decent Americans. I think it's the deep sincerity of his commitment which is why the leftists keep accusing him of being a liar. I think that they sense that he means it and the sincerity terrifies them. You went on to add the material after "btw" while I was signing in. I don't know, Michael, about your stateme

  8. Brant, I agree. I think he's sick and tired of being asked the same damn question by the same damn people when he keeps answering them. How enthusiastic can you get over a person like Chris Wallace acting like a retard on purpose and demanding you swear an oath to do what you normally do to boot? Getting exasperated and holding it in is energy-draining, but it is a whole lot better than saying, "Fuck you, asshole," in the middle of a presidential debate. Besides, President Trump's energy level for rallies and presentations and tweets--and his normal workload--is just as high a

Then I wondered who this guy was and why he made this video. So I looked. He made this video as a thank you to Tim Pool, of all things. He said Tim "unlocked" him. His name is Gary Lamb. He put this video up two days ago on YouTube. It already has over 430 thousand views. And after watching the full thing there on YouTube, I got even more choked up than before. btw - Lots of anti-Trump id

  13. Incidentally, during the lead-up phase to voting day, has anyone noticed that I rarely talk about the political opinions of anti-Trump luminaries in the Objectivist subcommunity? I just noticed this myself and wondered why. Then it hit me. Their opinions are irrelevant to the election. If there were something they say or do that would affect voting, I would be agreeing with them or rebutting them, but I forgot they existed when I have thought about the election. I'm not ignoring them. I literally forgot they existed. Seriously. Michael

In this age of alone togetherness a young adult on a blind date is like being a paid volunteer in some kind of orchestrated chaos centered around awkward intimacies and chance meetings in order to placate demands placed by social norms. This could not have been highlighted more than by the stark contrast of the paper tablecloth and plastic silverware juxtaposed along side the leaded crystal stemless goblets of the restaurant.

Philosophy and psychology are considered different areas of formal study and application but co-exist in the individual mind and his life. (Self-evidently). Healthy and unhealthy was the specific concern of this Objectivism-grounded psychologist.

In response to Schiff saying the Biden thing is Russian disinformation, he stated it came from Bidens' laptop...its not disinformation. He stated the electorate will have to answer the question as to how it all gets resolved. Why? I could see it in his face. He's beaten down by the clogged wheels of government legal justice immediately before an election that has Uge consequences. He seemed unable to conjure anything

  23. Ellen, It's like President Trump said in the NBC Town Hall the other day when what's-her-face was trying to entrap him about supporting QAnon so they could do their press outrage routine. He said he didn't know that much about QAnon, but he certainly doesn't think being against pedophilia is a bad thing. Besides, in my view, as I've mentioned in other places, I think the ambiguity and other things people like to debunk with Q's messages are behavior-engineered to spread. This is based on a deep understanding of human nature. (Nir Eyal is one who gives a basic algorit

  24. Adding full quotes from the Chinese envoy that were denounced by Canada. Items/incidents/cases to bear in mind -- a Huawei executive, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in transit by the RCMP in 2018, on the request of the United States. The charges were essentially fraud. She was released on bail with conditions while she fights the extradition process in Canadian courts. It's not looking good for her. The Chinese government essentially took two Canadians hostage in China, and has withheld consular services from them. This is what the prime minister called "coercive diplomacy" ...

Pelosi wants to use this money from the COVID-19 relief funds to buy support for Biden's campaign. That's why she wants a lot more money than was planned. Bribes cost a lot. Thank God President Trump finally put an end to it. It's about time. Pelosi missed out on her gravy train. From the tone of the above, I don't expect President Trump to go back to the table before the election, even if she agrees to everything he wants. He has his negotiating tactic and has been c

My hope was he would use his status as a RINO to grab the machine/monster of the seat of political and shake it , and a al Scott Adams rip a hole in the fabric of reality. And the reaction would expose how far and in what directions the corruption of power mongers had infiltrated all the institutions it touches.

He could have super isolated himself and all that. But he took normal precautions people always do with something like the flu, and a little bit more. But he piled on the work. Now that he has contracted the virus, he has inadvertently become a perfect role model for his message. He has essentially said, "I told you to do something and I did it myself.

  47. CM, Hi. I don't know how to answer this in a way that speaks for Objectivism per se, but I do know how I have come to grips with this seeming dilemma. One day I decided that there would be things in my lifetime I will never know, what with the universe being as big as it is, and as tiny as it can get. I accepted that and serenity appeared. And that made me rethink a few of my either-or values. (I used to be more of a Randian fundamentalist than I am now, although I still have a worldview formed by my contact with Rand's ideas.) One of the things I rethought was love.
