There is not a person or ideology of any significance in human history that I would rank below Ayn Rand's glorification of war of all against all as the highest good.



I mean yeah Rand is up there but it's obvious why statements like this are pretty absurd.
And Pol Pot
And Mao, Stalin, Papa Doc, Baby Doc, Pinochet, Castro, the Kims, Erich Hoenecker, Macias Nguema, the Derg, Robert Mugabe, Hillary Clinton, Hoxha, Qadaffi, Saddam, the House of Saud, Paul Biya, Ted Bundy, David Parker Ray, Al-Baghdadi, Bin Laden, Brezhnev, Andropov, Kissinger, the Ayatollahs, Mullah Omar, Chavez, Maduro, Putin, Ceausesceau, Suharto, Mobutu, Nasser, and Amin.

Wouldn't this count as a remarkably peaceful night in Baltimore?

I note tumbleweed in response to this.
There aren't riots every night in Baltimore. The crickets you hear are in response to another attempt at whataboutery.

I'm pretty sure that a few murders, a dozen stabbings and tens of physical assaults are vastly less peaceful than some kids committing vandalism...
Is there a major urban city in the world in which any of those things aren't a problem? I got mugged at gun point right here in Tallahassee and this is literally God's Country. And burning down stores owned by "the man" aren't "petty acts of vandalism."

I make a point in making sure I'm never without cigarettes. I buy a pack before they close even if I have three or four left just to ensure if I get stuck up all night I won't be going crazy from nicotine deprivation at least.

since something similar happened in germany in late autumn - you may now know since NO ONE covers those - i instantly thought about 20 dead people and terrorism.

Same, although I was thinking of the similarly completely ignored Nice attack.
You.....you are kidding right? I saw like seven days of nonstop coverage of Nice.

57  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is a justified use of nuclear weapons? on: February 26, 2017, 11:39:25 am
One is absolutely justified, the others not so much. I'd authorize dropping a tactical battlefield nuke on Raqqa in response to any ISIS sponsored terror attack on American soil.

I welcome the phrase True Leftist returning to prominence in Atlas parlance.

lol I bet he stayed up all night writing that one.

Sadly, my reaction was, "Oh thank god it was a drunk driver and not an Islamist terrorist who would be Trump's Reichstag Fire."
I'm hoping the same too (for different reasons), because I really don't feel like worrying about going to street parties now.

Has yet to break on any channels. I'm praying our Louisiana posters are all fine if they were around.

I think it's because their Jobs..... don't need Free Trade or Fair Trade arguments. Doctors, Lawyers, Computer Scientists.....


Most of the Jobs leaking away are Blue Collar Jobs.

Exactly. Most millenials and Gen Zers aren't looking forward to working in a factory.
Then they should expect to continue to compete for work in the fluctuating job markets we've witnessed since we've become a post-industrial economy. Take for example the millenials who have taken out huge loans for their education, but aren't prepared for the real world when they find their degree in philosophy is useless unless they double down and enter academia. These people won't have a choice, and frankly, they deserve to be crushed under the weight if they can't even work at a factory in the interim.
68  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the status of weed in four years? on: February 25, 2017, 04:06:21 pm
I think it'll be legalized totally via referendum in 2018.

Um, explain to me the course of action that will make this happen.

I think what Crumpets said will be likely, although it feels like pot would be a stupid hill for Trump to die on.
I forgot to add: in Florida.

I think the momentum is on our side. The Medical Marijuana movement has been more active among college students here in Tally than the presidential campaigns were. Everyone I know who voted Yes voted because their implicitly aware that it is a step closer to legalization.

I'd vote Referendum, but of the options included, Labor because they're sufficiently anti-Europe.

The number will go down when they're looking for a stable job and aren't playing with their phone in Econ class.

To me this feels like the first night of the DNC all over again.

Thank God this over

It's not over. The Bernie wing will not forget. This is war.
Of f**k off it's the freaking chair. Get out an put Bernie wingers into congress in 2018
It's funny that so many non-Americans are outraged. It's not their party, it is not their fight.

I have just as much of a stake in the future of this country as you do.
Yes, but that doesn't mean your voice should be listened to in any context outside curious observations. I backed Brexit but I don't go around pissing on UKIP because of their recent infighting; it's not my place.

An olive branch means absolutely nothing. But please delude yourselves, we'll need the full eight years.
