Atlas Didn't Shrug But He Was One Of The 99%

Ayn Rand uses Atlas as an example of an exceptional being. The premise of her story is that exceptional people hold up the world and support the rest of us and if they were to shrug our world would come crashing down on all of us unexceptional people. If Ayn were to have looked into the mythology she butchers with her inaccurate metaphors she would have known that in mythology Atlas was a Titan and humanity arose from the Titans who battled the Olympian Gods. Atlas was forced into his labor by the Olympian Gods for daring to rise up against them.

I believe you mentioned some shady dealings regarding Rick Perry and the track built in Austin.

Now, I'm a big fan of the F1 races, however, I am aware of the political and financial shenanigans that are part and parcel of the F1 circus.

Please Discuss Norquest Pledge = Marginal Rate

If you read the Norquest pledge, it refers to the "marginal income tax rate." Isn't that the highest bracket? Please discuss the actual text of the pledge(s) and exactly who it is protecting. Here is the Senate version of the pledge:

How to start taking control of our political process

I apologise in advance for the poor spelling and grammer. I have never professed to be an english major.

In any event,

I have been watching all I can about the occupy movements and I think were missing the point here. We have seen the growing response of government, ie. locking out the press and violently cracking down on peaceful protestors, in obvious violations of our constitution.

Appropriate Size of Government

BP caused the same accident as Deepwater Horizon (4/20/2010) in the Caspian Sea (9/17/2008) and State Department knew it.

The release of the secret cable revealing this fact was made public by Private Bradley Manning and remains a cause for his imprisonment. Condoleezza Rice and BP tried to make sure the Public didn't hear about it.

U.S. has prison slave labor population as well as China

Saw Monday TV show about China's prison slave labor population and found it disingenuous that no mention was made of our prison slave labor population. UNICOR, previously known as Federal Prison Industries is a for-profit corporation run by the Bureau of Prisons - 110 factories at 79 federal penitentiaries. Prisoners are paid either nothing or 23 cents an hour.

What's Wrong With America: Ideology and Injustice Collide

First, let's consider what makes this time slightly different than previous times of unrest. The essential facts are that most Americans are suffering through the deepest economic depression since the 1930s. We barely avoided a complete economic collapse and may still see an economic collapse if the euro fails. With so many homes worth less than the loans against them, the American consumer economy is simply upside down. This is unique in our history -- unprecedented home ownership with unprecedented loss of value.

Can someone verify what I heard today as true?

While I hold dear libreral ideals, I whole heartedly support our troops here in the United States and Overseas. These people put their lives on the line so we may sleep soundly. Patriots who are out their on the front line protecting our country from its enemies. I worked for the Department of the Navy for almost 10 years, from the early 70s to the early 80s. Then our citizens in uniform if single were given a place to sleep, 3 meals a day, a first outfit of uniform, and healthcare. If they were injured whether it be in combat or not in combat we took ca

Is History Repeating Itself in a sort of unplesant way?

In 1960 John F. Kennedy won the Presidential election and became President of the United States. Richard Nixon lost. Richard Nixon, I belive also had some ethics problems with the Republican Party and was pretty much punished for his wrong doing. Now if one of you out there knows more about what he did please feel free to educate us as I was only 4 years old when all this took place. It was only eight years later that all was forgiven for Richard Nixon and he Ran for President of the United States in 1968 and won.

We Don't Need Another Cable Giant.

Thanks to the FCC, two-thirds of our nation's high-speed internet subscribers may soon be under the control of just two companies.

According to a recent article over at CommonDreams.org, that agency has approved Charter Communication's $90 billion dollar takeover of two other cable providers: Time Warner and Bright House Networks.
