  1. William is a Russian sleigh ride in one person throwing off "data" hoping the scientific wolves stop and eat. --Brant
  2. You seem to be yearning for a world that isn't there and never was there--where what's on the ostensible surface matches what's below. --Brant
  3. the neckbone commonly broken by hanging wasn't the neckbone that was broken indicating he may have been strangled. --Brant
  4. Nice rant, Wolfo, but there is no federal debt. All that "debt" is in spent dollars which are from a sovereign (fiat) currency. If your trillion buck T-bill has matured the US Treasury will give you another--roll it over--or credit your account with a trillion dollars. Just-by-pushing-a-button. Because of inflation you don't preserve wealth in any fiat currency but in assets. --Branto
  5. Any "scientific consensus" is bogus, politicalized science. Its first cousin is "climate change." A family of lying liars. --Brant the real message is "Shut up, fool!"
  6. This thread is the first I had ever even heard of CC. I don't do TV any more. --Brant
  7. Interesting. I think the notion of equality before God led to moral equality within society led to legal equality led to individualism. More or less. --Brant
  8. We're at war with CNN and other such media and the guy got in a good shot. Why are we at war with them? They're at war with us, and have been for decades. It's the good guys starting to shoot back. --Brant N0 MERCY!!!!
  9. Now doubters are labelled by the MSM as speculators without facts. Well, that's what you've been doing to all and sundry forever so we can't do what you do, but with much more honesty? Jesus --Brant
  10. The front page of today's Sunday NYT has an Epstein article with two notable sub-headlines: he hanged himself and he wasn't on a suicide watch. My impression is they wrote the headlines then "researched" the story. You can't believe this crap. --Brant
  11. Closer to poetry than prose isn't poetry. However, in the either-or continuum, it's not poetry. This is because without prose poetry is impossible and not even conceivable. So it's prose. --Brant THERE!!
  12. Ayn Rand was a woman to stay away from, even while reading and appreciating her work. --Brant
  13. Not a poem as such, but I forget the exact nomenclature. --Brant
  14. There wouldn't be a novel without Roark fixing up Keating's work, Dominique being flat-assed stupid, and blowing up the housing project. Etc --Brant and that was just an overture to AS
  15. That house they repaired to might have been inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, a picture of which appeared on the cover of Time magazine. I toured it in 1973. --Brant
  16. Rand's three novels are so different they should be considered separately save one to another. John Galt had no place in the world of Howard Roark. When Rand wrote Galt's speech she essentially created Objectivism and it personally trapped her therein just as writing the novel itself trapped her in its world. This created the Rand trance which ensnared many people, some for the better some for the worse. All the betters transcended it through personal and intellectual growth. You have to forgive her for it; who regrets Atlas Shrugged? Not me, not a bit of it. --Brant
