    Classic pianist Khatia Buniatishvili

    Is anyone here familiar with this lady? Hails from the Republic of Georgia, has 5 CDs out, plays concerts all over the world but mainly in Europe. Often will have her sister Gvantsa join her. Often plays in an almost dreamy like manner. And, if that isn't enough, is as you can see, quite beautiful! Speaks fluent English, French, German & Russian, along with her native Georgian. And has spoken out against Vladimir Putin's aggressive policies, another reason to admire her. Here are three of her performances: Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata Liebestraum Chopin's Waltz In C Sharp Minor and her with her sister playing 4 handed piano Astor Piazzolla's Libertango Enjoy!

    Antifa fascists attack Yaron Brook and Sargon of Akkad

    One thing that came to my mind before this whole Antifa attack took center stage.........what was Yaron Brook doing attending a debate sponsored by an organization calling itself "The King's Libertarian Society"? I thought the Ayn Rand Institute considered libertarians "Persona Non Grata", and David Kelley's appearance as a speaker at Laissez Faire Books was the thing that sparked the rift that resulted in the Institute booting him out. How is Brook's appearance any different?

    Antifa fascists attack Yaron Brook and Sargon of Akkad

    "Antifa" is supposed to mean "Anti-fascist"? Sounds like a case of the pot calling the kettle BLACKSHIRT!

    Atlas Shrugged Part III Greenlighted

    I just saw it, having already seen Pts 1 & 2. Same disappointment as with the first 2, the acting was so flat! I always pictured Dagny as being much more animated in her joy and bitterness, and the actor's "Who Is John Galt?" speech was comparable to having an opera sung by a folksinger!

    So I'm researching the Austrians and...

    A friend had directed me to this disturbing article. I was familiar with Lew Rockwell's anarcho-capitalism and Christianity, but the Von Mises Institutes attempts to reconcile what Ludwig himself stood for, with Christianity is outrageous! http://againstpolitics.com/von-mises-washed-in-the-blood-of-jesus/ .

    Inquiry on a quote by Noam Chomsky

    I recall him saying that 'progressives' (meaning: Leftists) have an obligation to deny or downplay the truth about oppression under communist dictatorships, on the grounds that otherwise it would give intellectual/political ammunition to American warmongers, something along that line. Can anyone find the exact quote, as stated by Chomsky, direct from his writings, and give a link?

    In her handbag - The Fountainhead

    As you can guess by my avitar, I met her in person in Calgary. Mentioned to her that I read The Fountainhead when I was 19, and she responds "Yes, it was really challenging for a French person".

    3 Cheers for the Reaper, Kim Jong Ill, Qaddafi, and Osama in 2011

    My mother told me to always speak good of the dead. Okay: Kim Jong Il is dead. Good!
  9. Then again, you can always fight protests this way: My link The Patriot Guard Riders have been useful as serveing as a buffer between the Westboro Inbreds and the funeral procession line. And, always at the invitation of the berieved families. Incidently, if you can set aside the references to God, this is a worthy song & vid:

    Access To Energy Online

    For those who don't know of him, Dr. Petr Breckmann was a refugee from Communist Czechoslovakia who came to America and started a newsletter, Access To Energy, in 1973. His book, The Health Hazards Of Not Going Nuclear, was praised by objectivists for it's unabashed pro-science, pro-free market stance, and opposition to the anti-rational anti-capitalist crowd. Not it is online, for anyone to see back issues. My link Great intellectual ammunition for those who want to preserve the free society in the 21st century and beyond.
  11. Okay, so this doesn't necessarilly makes her an Aristotilian, let alone an Objectivist, but scroll down to where she quotes Aristotle. Rachael Flatt Gal is one hard worker, juggling skating and schooling, never once getting a 'B' or lower.

    In her handbag - The Fountainhead

    Ah...the virtue of selfishness indeed. Go to this link: NY Times article Mother wanted her to think of herself first because she wanted her to be strong. Well, look where that strength brought her.

    In her handbag - The Fountainhead

    An update: Visit My Website Man, to go through what she did, losing her mother to a heart attack just 2 days before competing in the Olympics, and ultimately winning a Bronze medal for her country on homesoil, really has been an inspiration for millions. And read her comments on The Fountainhead at the end of the article.
  14. You could not make this up! Go to telephone interview .

    Pat Robertson, I'd say he hit a new low

    This reminds me of someone's observation that Man creates God in his image. Robertson's idea of God is a serial mass-murderer who kills scores of people wantanly because of the sins of some. Sounds more like a reflection of Robertson's sense of life.
