  2. Hey everyone!! It's been a while. Hope the past few years have been kind to you all.
  3. This discussion reminds me of how the media twisted the story about that woman spilling McDonald's coffee on herself.

    Who was it?

    "We have no more right to consume happiness without making it than we have to consume wealth without producing it." I make a distinction between being productive and not being productive. The Rent Collector has a legal right to his property and I am not disputing that. But if he was not responsible for the creation of the item being rented out, he is collecting on the basis of a legal privilege, not on his productive efforts. He is not being paid for anything he -did-. If I had a choice between saving a productive prole or a rent collector from drowning I would save the prole. Ba'al Chat
  5. Why deport these people? Ba'al Chatzaf The irony is, they are already trying to deport themselves, so the petition actually means nothing outside they want to grant their wish but not let them keep their homes when they go. So we have reached the point people are trolling a Gvoernment website to do what amounts to snarky comments in the comment section? Brother, you asked for it! Actually, that's not ironic at all. That's just the failure to understand the difference in deportation and secession. Secession does not equal "self-deportation". Clever phrasing though!
  6. It's coincidental that I came across this thread as just last night I was talking to my brother about what goes on inside the brains of our furry little friends, specifically, our cat. We humans are introduced to language at such an early age it's hard to imagine sensing the world without assigning words to it, but then it's hard to imagine a cat somehow describing an object or a situation to another cat. Also, I wonder if we humans first communicated with our hands. It's evident, as can be seen with sign language, our species' ability to create a complex language through the use of our ha
  7. Here's the petition to deport everyone who signed a petition to secede from the Union.
  8. "we also have fewer horses and bayonets" now that's funny
  9. So happy to hear him call out George Hippopotamus. Detest that guy!
  10. This is short lecture from Daniel Pink on the Science of Motivation. Although Pink doesn't directly credit Ayn Rand, her philosophy is very apparent in his presentation. For a quick proof go to 12:38. Also, I can't get over how much he looks like, Andy, from the t.v. series, Weeds.
  11. I found the Wikipedia article on the Vulcans fascinating. The quotes from G.W. blow my mind. I do realize they are pre 9/11 but still, quite amusing. "If we're an arrogant nation, they'll resent us. If we're a humble nation, but strong, they'll welcome us. Our nation stands alone right now in the world in terms of power, and that's why we have to be humble, and yet project strength in a way that promotes freedom." - Bush 2 “I'm not so sure the role of the United States is to go around the world and say this is the way it's got to be. We can help. And maybe it's just our difference in gov
  12. MSK, sorry again! From now on I'll start threads like these in "Stumping in the Backyard". Anyways, I've held on to Ron Paul for too long. Whether or not there was corruption within his campaign, it doesn't matter. Ron Paul's bid for election is history. Now it's Gary Johnson all the way!
