Are they domestic or foreign and how many people believed the lies? Could libertarians and O’ists have influenced the election by voting for President Trump?

  4. Here are a couple of letters that mention Rothbard. Peter From: "George H. Smith" Subject: ATL: Re: Buridan's ass (was "Are mind and will an illusion?")

Any action demonstrates choice based on preference: preference for one alternative over others." [_Man, Economy, and State_, HB, p. 65]" Bill then concluded: "In fact, what free will w
  5. I could not find much about BB’s Master Thesis. I may have pasted these letters on OL before, but it is interesting to reread something after a lag of time. And there may some duplication because I had a bad habit of saving letters to two or more different threads. Peter From: "George H. Smith" To: "*Atlantis" Subject: ATL: Re: Murray Rothbard and Ayn Rand Date: Wed, 31 Oct 2001 18:23:16 -0600.

Objectivists promote laissez-faire and property rights. Should common carriers be allowed to ban President Trump from access? I am interested how “fans of Rand” think about this issue.

  7. I am feeling pissed off but not yet depressed. In his second inaugural address President Bush said: From the day of our founding, we have proclaimed that every man and woman on this earth has rights and dignity . . . . Across the generations, we have proclaimed the imperative of self-government." And he vowed to "all who live in tyranny and hopelessness" that "when you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.

  8. I am looking around for my covid immunity shot. Any suggestions? CVS? Walgreens? My wife suggests the VA but they took too long on one other crucial matter, though they came through in the end.
  9. I think the demotion of President Trump is partly responsible. 2024.

  12. One portion of President Trump’s legacy for America will be that he kept us out of wars and the following reflects how I grew up in a military family. It’s a bit of a joke with a big grain of truth. Peter The Foo Fighters: . . . . I've been waiting on a war since I was young. Since I was a little boy with a toy gun. Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Just waiting on a war for this and that. There's got to be more to this than that.
