  1. Welker did okay. She seems to have tried, at least, to somewhat control her biases or keep them beneath the surface for most of the time. I did laugh a few times at the rushing to get to the next topic. No more time to talk about this silly issue, let's more along now, oh, wait, Joe wanted to add something? Okay thirty more seconds and then we really must get to the very important question that I wanted to ask rather than staying with this one which destroys Biden...
  2. Wow, Yawon Bwook is such a tool.
  3. Could someone please give a shallower dive? Something that gets to the damed point? What is their gripe? I mean other than that they heard that someone reported that an anonymous source claimed that Orange Man said bad things about soldiers or anyone else, and these guys decided to believe it? I see that the left's press loves these guys, and they seem to enjoy praising themselves as being brave and principle saviors, but what real things are they bravely saving us all from? What's the substance? Thanks in advance, J
  4. The StarTrib’s take: Orange Man Bad. https://m.startribune.com/trump-seizes-on-conservative-group-s-claim-of-fraud-in-minneapolis-election/572566832/
  5. True. There are probably about 15 to 20 more "October surprise" fizzles against Trump to come. The trend seems to be that they're fizzling faster and faster.
  6. The left's media is completely uninterested. The local commie rag, the StarTribune, is focused on Trump's alleged tax info. On the subject of vote/election fraud, they're still quadrupling down on Russia, Russia, Russia. At some point, they will have to cover the vote harvesting thing. Well, I mean, they'll have to play it down, nitpick "fact-check" it, etc. Not actually "cover" it.
  7. Nope, nothing to see here. Look away. The legitimate press isn't covering the above racist nonsense, and the independent fact-checkers already debunked the idea of mail vote fraud two months ago, so, something like this, especially when coming from the totally and universally discredited right-wing racist hate organization Project Veritas, isn't even worth looking at. There is no mail vote fraud in America. That's just a lie that Trump put forward without any evidence. Now, back to the subject of Russian interference in our elections. They're at it again, but this time it's an even bigger thre
  8. Yeah, muh Russians! Muh Covington kids!! Muh 'Nazis are very fine people'!!! Muh 'All Mexicans are animals'!!!! Muh 97% of real, verified, actual, true climate scientists agree that we need socialism if we want to survive the Doom™!!!!! Muh 'dead soldiers are loser and suckers'!!!!!!
  9. Oh, so 'show us the work' is important now? Cool. Oh, wait, but it's only important regarding this single issue, and not, say, anthropogenic climate change, right? Got it. J
  10. Bummer. I missed it. Did His Royal Published Highness talk about how much of an authority his wife is? I miss those days.
  11. TDS is intensifying. It’s hilarious watching them go apeshit over what they’ve been told to believe about Trump and the post office.

    Newbsie

    Newbsie is still beating the dead horse. The boy never learns. He's now doing "research" into the concept of the Sublime by asking people who have never heard of it, except perhaps in vague layman's terms, to give their feelings and free-associations about it. Which actually does makes some convoluted sense, since that's exactly the method that Newbsie himself used to arrive at his ahistorical, willful misunderstandings of the concept.
  13. Hi kids, just checking in to see if anyone has gotten close to thinking about considering answering my unanswered questions on this thread, or explaining why they are not proper and therefore not deserving of answers. Any real science yet? Nope. I guess the Magical Thinkers still have nothing for those of us who are Evidence Seekers.
  14. Bwook is a mowon. His modus operandi is a goofy variation on Rand at her worst when she was being driven by aesthetic tastes and pretending that it was purely objectively systematic philosophy that she was doling out. It's his little feelings about what he's heard other people express in their feelings about someone else's emotional reaction to their willful misinterpretation of something that they misheard that Trump said. Anyway, I hope that Bwook is living comfortably while shredding that last of what remains of Rand's coattails.
  15. Yeah, it doesn't surprise me that you're unaware of his having been taken on on the subject. J
  16. Hear, hear! Yes, let's not go back to 2002. Stronger minds than Tony's have already covered the topic ad nauseam. Correct. J
  17. FDR statues remain unscathed. He had placed Japanese Americans in concentration camps. It doesn't get much more racist than that. Why is he exempt from the current mob? Heh. LBJ is famous for having looked down his nose on blacks as lesser beings. He is known to have frequently used the n-word when referring to them. He was motivated to cave in to the political pressure of civil rights by the idea of making blacks dependent on his party. He is quoted as having said that he would "have those n*****s voting Democrat for 200 years." His statues and portrait are intact and untouched. Why is h
  18. Sad. I had liked her ideological positions, and the clarity with which she expressed them. Apparently those positions now take a back seat to her impressions of the popular Narratives of people's alleged "character." The aesthetic tail once again wags the dog. J
  19. Years ago, Sciabarra got it so right in dubbing her Comrade Sonia, but times have changed and our lexicon has expanded since then: she is now a post-Objectivist boss Karen.
  20. Wahoo! The revival of Greta! The leftist media had spent all of that time and effort shoving Greta in our faces, trying to make her influential, but then the damned Covid ended all of that. Solution? Let's have Greta be an expert on Covid! Fuck yeah! Which policies will she support? Which punishments? How have we stolen her childhood and her dreams this time? By not wearing ineffective masks early enough? By not obeying soon enough? How daaaare you. You must bend the knee. https://n-politicss.blogspot.com/2020/05/beyond-parody-cnn-taps-greta-thunberg.html?fbclid=IwAR0ZAZ9
  21. Exactly. And it's fun to watch, and also to bitch-slap. J
  22. So much for the theory advocated in the film Tim's Vermeer. https://apnews.com/4e5a6f3b783b041e91a13c7a5e39713f "...research with infrared imaging showed that he began composing the work in shades of brown and black. He then drew the girl’s outline in black lines before working from the green background to the foreground: The skin of her face, her yellow jacket, white collar, blue headscarf and finally the quick dabs of white that make up the pearl..."
  23. It's been a while since we've had an Objectivist Roundup. Not much to report. Online Objectivism outside of OL is dead. The only thing worth mentioning is how dramatically Dr. Comrade Sonia, PhD., has deteriorated:
  24. Disturbed by the use of the word "they," Billy? Is it the bad word? Is it very revealing? Does it prove something extra icky about the non-Billy's who use it? Tee hee hee?
