  1. Already beheaded 151 people this year, about to behead 50 more. ISIS or the 'Islamic State'? -- nope. Assad? -- bzzzt, guess again. "confessions extracted under torture, trials that bar access to defense counsel" Aha! Those evil islamo-nazi mullahs of Iran! -- sorry, no. China? North Korea? Hamas? Boko Haram? Somalia? (Hint: it's a U.S. ally that funded ISIS and al-Qaeda ) http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/saudi-arabia-executions-kingdom-to-behead-50-men-convicted-of-terrorism-offences-despite-threat-of-a6750631.html
  2. This struck me today while I was reading a book. My thought is that totalitarians like Schicklgruber or Stalin or Mao didn't choose to do what they didn't because of "altruist" premises. Rand's argument is that no selfish (Randian sense) would commit the horrors that they committed. But, while I was sitting down, I reflected on how much time I spend thinking about politics and I came to the idea that these men did the things that they did because they had the desire to shape society/the world. Any thoughts?
  3. It's now official. Barack Obama rules America like a dictator. And virtually no-one notices or cares. I follow the newspapers, magazines, radio, and t'v' shows a lot. Probably more than is good for me. And yet this is the only article I've been able to come across in the two weeks since Dictator Barack's decree and unprecedented power usurpation: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323823004578591503509555268.html The most important part of the Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Michael McConnell (Hoover Institution and Stanford Law School) is probably this: Basically, ObamaCare, a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act, was passed into law in March of 2010, but a huge part of it was somehow "suspended" by Pres. Obama two weeks ago totally without authority. In the United States, the Congress has full power and authority to make the laws, and the President has zero power and authority to repeal or delay them. And yet Obama did. How is this possible? And why the silence from everyone?
