  1. U? Did you know Ayn Rand was of Jewish descent? I am not saying you are afraid of "being alone" but you have joined a social circle . . . to be read and discussed . . . or are you here to simply plant signs in the yard?
  2. Is *time* real or just a concept based on observation? While browsing I came across the following letters concerning Objectivism and *time.* Michael Hardy is, or was a professor at M.I.T., if I remember correctly. Very interesting. I don’t remember quoting these letters before though I have discussed the concept of time. How would you fit “time” into objectivism? Peter From: "David S. Boyer" To: objectivism Subject: OWL: Objectivism and Time Date: Sun, 08 Feb 2004 09:46:02 -0500. I've recently finished reading Piekoff's Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand. While re-reading the first
  3. I think a lot of "secret and "super beets" formulas will be put forward before it is announced that a true, proven vaccine is available.
  4. William? You should have re-quoted the whole sentence! U also wrote: "He's Drumpf for all the things he hasn't done but should have done by now and could have easily done by now. But he is a salesman, a liar, a showman, and a renigger, et. al." end quote Was "renigger" a slip of the bicycle wheel? Jooz and Renigger? The word renege could have an "r" attached, I suppose. But the "n" word is clearly visible. Is it a secret "high, hi, sign for some dear, lost, Nazi buddies? Yet, U's bio makes him seem like a decent guy, living in North Dakota. I am having doubts. I may become an "un-f
  5. Why would an objectivist support President Trump with spirit and emotion? Time to refresh? These old, oft repeated letters are from a fan and colleagues of Ayn Rand. They give a hint as to why I say that under President Trump we are freer, better off, and safer using reason and rationality . . . the “OH what a relief he is emotion” may be felt after the 2020 election.

  6. And U wrote: "And especially for Marxists and Drumpfs." You may be losing fans, because when you call President Trump, "Drumpf" it is like saying sarcastically, "Hey? I like the little bastard." People begin to detect a liar.
  7. You could go to Area 51. I'll put in a word for you.
  8. I remember an article in a science magazine about the last of the Neanderthals. Humans competed and went to war with them and the Neanderthals over a period of centuries, retreated en masse to a region on the northern Mediterranean Sea where the last thousands of their survivors lived in a group / territory. And there they died.
  9. That reminds me of a movie and a real life pseudoscientific instance where someone listened to radio static coming from "the galaxy." Listen long enough, trying to make sense of any of the noise, and you will start hearing patterns . . . and then words . . . and then it's ET on the line!
  10. I watched the movie, “Dunkirk” tonight. Harry Styles, who sang with the band One Direction, plays British Army private Alex, and does a good job. It is a well done movie and riveting.
  11. With vampire fangs hidden but exposed for mere seconds, important Democrat Morticia, or is it Vampira, has spoken. Is she Loony tunes? You be the judge. Why would the democrats travel back in time to promote communism? Peter From The Washington Post: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s convention speech serves as warning to Democratic establishment and Biden. Rachael Bade 58 mins ago Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s move to nominate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president was entirely symbolic as the party rallies around nominee Joe Biden to challenge President Trump. But while the party gave the fr
  12. I went looking for that odd word “comprachicos” and found some letters with the word, or in the case of Barbara Branden’s letter it was from a thread “IQ” where the word was mentioned. Peter . . . . Starting to get the point now about modern symbolic logic? It's not just nonsense or shoddy reasoning hidden behind obfuscatory symbolisms. It's deadly, because its chief practitioners are dedicated to wiping out objectivity and man's ability to grasp the facts of reality. They're just another bunch of Comprachicos, hiding out in the universities, laying in wait for innocent victims whose min
  13. Interesting? I am not sure about listening to an audio version when I have use of my eyes. Doctor Who: Christopher Eccleston Returning as The Ninth Doctor. The first Doctor of the new era is back for a new audio series. By Matt Fowler Updated: 9 Aug 2020 12:51 pm Christopher Eccleston, as the Ninth Doctor, helped usher in a new era of Doctor Who, though his tenure would be short-lived as the actor would leave the series after only one season of 13 episodes due to a breakdown in his relationship with then-showrunner Russell T Davies. Eccleston also famously turned down the chanc
  14. I will give the clues and answers to a couple and then you see if you can figure out the clues. From The New York Times Sunday crossword, “Questions for the Pharmacist,” by Cathy Millhauser. What’s your favorite old TV show? Smokey and the Bayer. What would you say if you found some pills in your mixed vegetables? Bufferin succotash. How do I get these tablets out of the bottle? Bang the Tums slowly. Dristan and Isolde. Perpetual Motrin. The age of Anacins. On Eleve of absence. Family Sucrets.
  15. I hit the condense button and I like it better that way.
  16. Shadow Net? Trivia time. Who directed the movie, “The Green Berets”? John Wayne. I have asked this before but who’s birth name is Hans-Jörg Gudegast? Who played in the National Challenge Cup as a fullback with the Jewish American soccer club Maccabi Los Angeles, scoring the winning goal in the semifinal and a penalty kick in the final against Cleveland Internationals”? Eric Braeden better known as Victor Newman on “The Young and the Restless.” That Shadow Net thingee reminded me of a Eric Braeden movie. From Wikipedia. Colossus: The Forbin Project (a.k.a. The Forbin Projec
  17. On Steve Hilton’s Show The Next Revolution on Fox news, he called Biden’s pick: “Kamala Chameleon.” I liked that Boy George song, where he talked about contradiction, color, and living without conviction. Culture Club – “Karma Chameleon.” There's a loving in your eyes all the way If I listen to your lies, would you say I'm a man without conviction I'm a man who doesn't know How to sell a contradiction You come and go, you come and go Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon You come and go, you come and go Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams
  18. “Well, I’ll be darned,” said Ronald Reagan, also known as The Gipper. It’s a bit early and not yet midnight, but from RCP and CNN, August 17, 2020. General Election, Biden 50, Trump 46. Biden + 4 It does look that perhaps there is no positive Kamala affect. However the composite polling still shows Biden ahead by around 7 percent. On another front I had about 7 requests for money from the DJT campaign. It may be that time . . . for those crushing ads to begin.
  19. Thanks to our northern province, Canadia. MIke Myers. I am a bit leery about the idea of mail in voting, though some voters have opted for that method over the years, as with the elderly. Of course there are always absentee ballots among the military and their families. When I vote I must show my ID, even though the polling staff may know me by sight. What if election day comes and goes but Americans are are still waiting for the absentee ballots to come in and be counted? That is not good. And there is a greater chance of fraud. After taking precautions a grocery store can have peop
  20. The best president since Abraham Lincoln is Trump? I am not sure of the comparison but as far as making America freer again the Pastor is right. It is Trump. I wouldn’t mind seeing one of those “sliding scale of values graphs” showing the various Presidents’ adherents to the Constitution and the promotion of freedom. Yup. Trump or Reagan? I would put Trump over Reagan. So, who was the United States greatest enemy? The Japs? The Nazis? The North Vietnamese? No. the greatest enemy of the United States was The Confederate States of America. The CSA sought to destroy The United States.
  21. He was too young. My brother who passed away from cancer at age 68 was also named Robert.
  22. Did you say Sniff? Huh? What? Sorry to wake you Joe. It didn’t work. Huh? The sniff test, Sir. Previously on Network TV. Hello. My name is Joe Biden and I am going to be the next President of the United States. Let me introduce to you, my running mate and next Vice President of These United States, Camelot . . uh . . . I mean Pamela . . . uh . . . I mean, ‘RELAEASE THE KRAKEN!”. From Bing.

  23. Do I have time for one more? You ask how to say my name? Kamala sounds like Pamela! And Kamala sounds like Camelot! It's true! It's true! The Brahmin’s have made it clear. The climate must be perfect all the year, like in California which is Camelot. A law was made a distant moon ago here: July and August cannot be too hot. And there's a legal limit to the snow and pot here in California-lot. The winter is forbidden till December and exits March the second on the dot. By order, summer lingers through September In California-lot, Camelot. I will turn America into one
