Atlas Shrugged is one of the most popular books ever, and yet you say it is incredibly boring dribble. Doesn't this seem to be a major contradiction? Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong. But... William Buckley says it's boring. So as long as it isn't your own mind that you are basing your ideas on, then it must be correct. I have waded through some of William Buckley's turgid molasses of words, and I can understand how he could possibly not understand clear writing. Every time I read Atlas Shrugged, I am stopped in awe on almost every page. I imagine though that you have to be a "producer" yourself to understand the book. Other people probably do not have the mental enzymes necessary to process the ideas in this book, and so the ideas simply pass through their minds and out the other end. This book which is sometimes damned with the praise that it is for the young and naive, is an amazing example of what is possible. But then I am only 63, so maybe eventually I too will outgrow my ideals and principles.
Come on. Doesn't everybody see through this? This is all planned. The media is assisting Obama in keeping this as "under the radar" as possible. The intended audience is ONLY the Mexican voting bloc.
Gruber is lying about the GOP because he thinks Americans are too stupid to notice.

Can the Pope Shut Up Too?

I am no fan of the Pope, particularly for his communist leanings such as his fixation on income "inequality," but I am offended by your arrogance to assume you know his motives when you do not approve of his ideas. You cannot know if he is "desperate" to be "relevant" rather than speaking his honest thoughts on this subject. This is a lazy attempt to discredit the messenger. If you think he is wrong, then beat him with your superior evidence.
YES, global warming DID create ISIS... the global warming FRAUD that is. The rising food prices around the world are making people desperate, and most of this can be blamed on "global warming" regulations, increased energy costs, taxes and subsidies, converting our food supplies into fuel, and killing jobs and people's hopes. Then once these people erupt in despair, we drone their wives and children to further their commitment and enrollment efforts.
How could Ron Paul criticize our foreign policies? They've been such a sparkling success! The Arab Spring was even more successful than the Occupy Wall Street. They were both successfully encouraged by the experienced community agitator occupying our White House.

Who is Rand Paul?

Principles instead of platitudes. Rand Paul: "If our freedom is taken, the American dream will wither and die." Barack Obama: "Hope and change. Yes we can. Change we can believe it." Hopefully, enough Americans are sick of being treated like idiots. Rand Paul speaks to us like adults.
The invention of the WHEEL also replaced a lot of human jobs, but we seem to have adapted pretty well.
Come on people, we can't share any wealth if we don't make it first. Robots are just tools to make our lives easier. Thank the robot inventors for sharing this with us. We will profit from their inventions even long after they're gone, just as we are still profiting from the invention of the wheel (which I am sure, also replaced a lot of jobs).

The only thing this man-child is pushing to the limit is this country's patience. Watch out when it's had enough of his childishness.
