Objectivist libertarianism is easy to grasp. jimt. just remember that it's an attempt to dress up greed, selfishness, and a bitter hatred of anyone with less money than you as a political philosophy. Mix it with a heapin' helping of condescension and let stew for years. Voila! You've cooked up an objectivist libertarian.
When you're examining a problem, just imagine: "what is the approach to this problem that would be taken by the most sociopathic person in the entire world?" That would be the objectivist "solution".
"[Here, Mr. Rhoades fires up Google to see what The Huffington Post has to say about it...it may take a few minutes, but he will come back with biting words like "wingnut"...it's what he does.]"
James: that fantasizing about what I'm doing at some given moment? Another symptom.
James: That thing where you just toss out words for things that bug you? Like "public assistance", whether or not that phrase has any relevance at all to the person to whom you're speaking? That's a symptom, dude. Really. Get help.
James appears to be off his meds again.
"I've been called quite a few things since I've been commenting."
Me too, and when I start seeing some handwringing about that, I'll take the people complaining about name-calling a little more seriously. But so long as IOKIYAR, it's just more noise from the wingnut noise machine as far as 'm concerned.
“question … America.”
Why don't you post the rest of the quote, Ms. Henderson?
Or the conclusion of the article by Coons in which the quote appears?
Here, Ms. Henderson, since you're too dishonest to do so, I'll do it for you and correct the misinformation you seem intent on spreading before someone else is tempted to believe you have any credibility.
"When I returned last summer, I traveled all over the East Coast and saw in many ways a different America. Upon arriving at Amherst this fall, I felt like a freshman at an unfamiliar school all over again. Many of the questions raised by my experiences of the last year remained unanswered. I have spent my senior year reexamining my ideas and have returned to loving America, but in the way of one who has realized its faults and failures and still believes in its promise."
82soldier: right on schedule...
"To demean these citizen defenders of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is to risk political suicide. Primary elections have already proved this."
But will the general election do the same (despite all the pre-gloating here?)
As noted above, Angle's managed to make Harry Reid a viable candidate again, after it looked like he was certain to be defeated. And now from Kentucky comes the news that Jack Conway's pulled within the margin of error against Rand Paul, after a huge lead.
The opera ain't over yet, folks.
Oh, and let's not forget the "birther" contingent in the TP:
And Sharron Angle, who's single handedly managed to revive Harry Reid's chances by her raving about "Second Amendment remedies" and phasing out Social Security.
Nope, no loons there.
(Predictable hypocritical whining about name-calling begins in five...four...three....)
Rick Perry's suggested that Texas might secede from the Union again if the TPers don't get their way. O'Donnell, as noted above, claims she used to "dabble in witchcraft." And then we have these folks...
No loonies there, no siree....
