Phony in Chief

How come you're offended only when it's your messiah who's exposed for the fraud that he is. What pretense of piety drove the criticism of Mitt Romney when he was 15 years old, pulling a schoolboy prank probably like some you've pulled in your day?
You seem right on until you say the "well educated" understand economics. If they do, it's hard to see why they think they can change the basic rules and come out with a passable result. I don't think the American people, as a whole, know or care to know what the rules are and what are the consequences of ignoring them. Unfortunately, most of us can't seem to accept the fact that though we are free to break any law we want to break, we are never free to escape the consequences of that choice.
What's this "Ex-Radicals" stuff? I don't see where any of them have changed their spots.

Just one small question: Why in the world would a just and loving god create a being that is evil by nature? Think on, genius.

Exactly which core Christian value is it that you see opposed in her work? I seems to remember she talks about charity and decency being personal and precisely in line with one's own best interest. What governments do in their name is no even close to the words used to describe their actions, and they certainly aren't Christian.

That stupid comment could come only from the shallowest of readers, buying the first miniscule thought that clouds the mind before it can realize a basic concept. In four (so far) readings of Rand's masterpiece, I have yet to find her preaching or proselytizing; she is the epitome of cutting to the chase, exposing the most basic principles and the consequence of trying to avoid their discipline. We are seeing today the clearest demonstration of her accuracy this or any nation has witnessed -- god (or whatever) help America!
Maybe the Justice will explain to the rest of us how Congress can pass a tax and the President can excuse over 1,000 people or groups from paying it. This isn't sleight of hand; it's downright criminal contempt for the intelligence and decency of the American people.

A Political Glossary: Part III

What makes man imperfect? I believe it's the impossible definition created by people who want something "better" than they have. They're also the ones who think that a lion killing and eating a gazelle is violent beyond civilized viewing. Wouldn't it serve us better if we just realized that we are what we are, and look for ways to make it as successful as possible? Perfect "justice" in human terms is a ridiculous fantasy.

Not only is it not a bank, but it is not federal. It is owned by a cabal of multi-millionaires who bamboozled the government into thinking they could/would act in the best interest of the country. Next, there is not reserve. It's just a paper printing tiger that thinks the printing of money is equal to the creation of wealth. Money isn't wealth, people! It's only a symbol of work, and there's no work being done to justify its proliferation. How can 330 million people be so blind?

What you don't seem to understand, Mattie, is that this problem is not about which candidate, but which value is held by the electorate. As long as we think there is such a thing as something for nothing, we will get exactly what we wish for -- something for nothing. Unfortunately, that something comes at a gigantic price to be paid by our most successful compatriots and ultimately our progeny, and that isn't nothing! No candidate on the American scene today can change our national psychopathy until we see the need for change and do it ourselves.
