  1. It may be back on: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/09/10/3008109.htm
  2. I think Glenn Beck was trying to highjack the Tea Party. And I agree that he was up to something when he asked that people not bring signs...it helps him control the message. Fortunately, I don't think the average Tea Partier is buying what Beck is selling. His rally was nothing but a prayer meeting for the religious right, a group that has been growing more bolder throughout the Bush years. The Tea Party on the other hand, was partly a response to the religious right in my opinion. Many conservatives are sick of the anti-abortion, anti-gay and fake capitalism the religious right advocates and have seen the devastation to the economy and our individual liberty that their policies have caused. They hate the principles of Beck's followers as much as they hate the policies of the Obama administration. I saw no religious signs at the Tea Parties I have attended and the people I talked to were interested in one thing...reducing the power of the federal government to intrude into our lives, economically and personally. I think more people are awake now than before the Tea Party movement began and I don't think Beck's revival will make them close their eyes again or move toward religion.
  3. I haven't read the Romantic Manifesto yet, so I don't know if this is redundant, but at ARC TV they have posted a 48 minute audio lecture by Ayn Rand on Art in Education. Here is the link, just scroll down the page to find it. http://arc-tv.com/category/appearing/ayn-rand-appearing/
  4. I think Pink Floyd said it best: *Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are. You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are. And when your hand is on your heart, You're nearly a good laugh, Almost a joker, With your head down in the pig bin, Saying "Keep on digging... Pig stain on your fat chin. What do you hope to find. When you're down in the pig mine. You're nearly a laugh, You're nearly a laugh But you're really a cry.* -Pigs part one from their album Animals. Will Obama ever stop digging? It doesn't look like it to me. The socialists can dish it out, but they can't take the heat. Ha Ha charade they are... Not that the conservatives are offering much better!
  5. Funny... Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are my favorite bands. I am not sure Led Zeppelin fits into this thread as individualistic in the the lyrical sense. But Pink Floyd certainly does, at times. I like Welcome to the Machine and Animals the best. Although many think those albums were indictments of capitalism, I think they can be better viewed as a depiction of the strength of individual humans to fight the corruption of collectivism. Their lyrics are brutally honest.
  6. Objectivist Punk Rock, what a good idea! I haven't listened to any punk for ah...a few years but I always liked the raw energy of it. I like "Stand Up" a lot. I hope your band is a success!
  7. I thought the first segment was the best but I agree the show was a mess. I think the host needs to do a better job moderating the discussion. It's pretty funny when they show all the guests talking at once! Yaron did a good job defending the insurance industry. I always enjoy his tv appearances. He's on this show again tonight, by the way.
  8. I like the wings. I think they suggest that man's mastery of electricity will allow flights to great technological heights.
  9. Actually, thank you for posting these links, Trebor. I was interrupted three times while listening, so I never got the finish the broadcast! Tomorrow, I plan to try again, and your links will no doubt be of value. Michaelangelos's, David is an image I can recall at will...so beautiful. The others I had not seen at all. MissLemon
  10. I just noticed that on ARI's registered user page, there is now a recording of Leonard Peikoff's talk radio show, with the topic, "What is Art." I'm heading over there now to give it a listen. MissLemon
  11. I DO write them back and say if you "must take action" then I must take action to try to convince everyone I know, who votes, to make sure you don't have the ability to "take action" in the future. I don't get many responses using this approach. I see it's possible they won't succeed in getting this passed so I am just hanging on to that thin hope.
  12. Very nice! Is that supposed to be electric cables encircling him with one end, the one in his right hand, kind of unravelling? Interesting...
  13. I think a government run health care monopoly is exactly what they are trying to do. The government can run it's plan without a profit, in fact they can run at a loss...forever. So how long could any private insurance company compete with that? When I write my Senators, asking them to vote NO, be they liberals or conservatives, all I get back is a form letter stating that both sides of the isle have agreed that the government "must do something." A phrase that sends shivers down my spine. My Representative in the House, Cliff Stearns did send a reply stating that he is against the "public option" in heathcare reform. I guess that's something. ARGH, my blood is boiling over this issue! How do you guys stay calm?
  14. The woman could be Myrna Loy but I am not sure. I say bittersweet because the girl is so beautiful already but she doesn't see that, she longs for a future that she's not sure she can attain, that's why she looks sad as she gazes at herself. Ha, Ha, very funny....
  15. I think it's a lovely bittersweet painting. The white thing is a comb that is stuck down into the bristols of the upturned hairbrush. My mom kept her brush and comb just like that on her vanity table. The string like thing, I think, if you look closely is a hand mirror, look into the standing mirror to see the round shape of it. The other string like things are loose hairs caught in the teeth of the comb.
