Brant Gaede Posted April 14, 2008 Share Posted April 14, 2008 (edited) Shayne,You know better than that. There is a world of difference between acting like a rugged individualist and actually being one.If you read carefully, you would have noticed I was calling on George to stop acting and start being. Rugged individualists actually do things like study and check, not just pop out with jargon bromides at the drop of a hat. Work is not as fun as acting, I admit. But it is real. Acting is acting and always will be. Facts are not opinions and all that...MichaelI'm not following this thread perfectly closely, all I know is that George is right about the principles here except regarding how they apply to children, you evidently prefer politically-correct statists to forthright individualists, and Wolf & Brant are pretending not to know what the phrase "Ayn Rand villain" refers to and some how find this to be a clever retort rather than the stupidity it actually is.All in all, pretty weird stuff going on in this thread, I think you guys are all on drugs.ShayneDo you think an ad hominem deserves more than "a clever retort"? Now you are claiming we "are all on drugs." George and his principles are one thing, how he addresses others is another. In fact, I'm closer to George and his principles than I think Michael is. So much so that the only reason I was able to keep posting here was by adding my signature line. It's interesting how George keeps sanctioning this place with his presence while putting the torch to individual "evil" doers. By his standards Michael is much, much more evil than HH.--Brant Edited April 14, 2008 by Brant Gaede Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
