  1. A new Poem and Yes I am still around, just taking a break to sort through matters. The Most Dangerous By Keith Engel © The most dangerous man of all, Is the man with nothing to lose. No lower can he go in his fall. For it is up to him to choose. Which course will he go? Will he curse the cruel twist of fate? And shake a mighty fist at the woe. Just waiting for the gruesome date. And treating life as the real foe. Never finding true and real bliss, In this great grand grotesque Dance, Despising even his lover’s kiss. While leaving it all to chance. Going into a spitting
  2. For the time being I will not be putting up anymore poems. I wish to begin writing some more poems, as well as begin work on some other projects. Also, I am thinking about self publishing these and other works. So I better not post all of my works for free viewing.
  3. I mean by social issues, even though this should be a none issue, "allowing" stem cell research, research into human cloning, abortion, euthanasia etc. So maybe social issues wasn't the correct term to use in that respect, but maybe more of a promoting of life type candidate.
  4. Another Poem The Sleeper This man you well know You walk by him with the flow Jostling in the crowd while on the go And it just goes to show That when standing in the brilliant glow Of a man who is on the threshold One willing to be daring and bold Willing to grab on and take hold Of what it is so simple and clear Never showing any mind numbing fear Or a shiny single wet dewy tear Has it become any clearer? Or is it possible that a look deeper Is needed to see this man cleaner For you have placed him in the grime And it truly is a heinous crime Ye
  5. Welcome Tood, I too found out about Objectvism via Goodkind, also as a friendly reminder, remember to captialize Objectivism and Objectivist.
  6. Here is what was said when the design was chosen "Today's announcement is the culmination of some of the many milestones we've achieved working together to rebuild and revitalize Lower Manhattan, and there is still much work to do," Governor Pataki said. "The consensus among all levels of government, the private sector, and the families of the victims, that brought us to this point, is a fitting tribute to the heroes who lost their lives in those evil attacks. The Libeskind plan promises to add an element of modern vision and magnificence to the already striking New York City skyline. These
  7. Yup, that is the winning design, apparently. Here is a link to the actual site that you can look at all the designs and the winning one. http://www.emporis.com/en/bu/sk/wt/rd/
  8. If anybody wants to see what a nation's sense of life is in the physical form all one has to do is look at the winning design for the "replacement" of the Twin Towers. http://www.emporis.com/en/il/im/?id=199158
  9. This also reminds me of these beautiful peices of artwork as well: http://www.cordair.com/Larsen/anewheight.aspx http://www.cordair.com/Larsen/youngbuilder.aspx http://www.cordair.com/Larsen/studyforatc.aspx
  10. For all intense purposes I want a candidate who is hard noesed when it comes to self defense and the economy, conservative, and liberal when it comes to the social issues. IF you can name a candidate like that then I will go for that individual.
  11. This one is very tough not to fall under, at least it was in my case. Since I am a writer and Objectivist, I wanted to write stories that express Objectivism. My problems was that I realized that even though I might have a good idea for the story, the motivation behind these ideas were strictly propaganda. I have since corrected my thinking and have thrown out all ideas with this motivation behind it.
  12. I was just about to post the same thing. The quotes are great, but the longer one's do become a destraction.
  13. I found this on a blog and I found it really funny. Medical News another one that has been around, but worthy of posting: In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names - a trade name and a generic name. For example, the trade name Tylenol is acetaminophen. Aleve is naproxen sodium, Amoxil is amoxicillin, and Advil is ibuprophen. The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After consideration by a team of experts, it recently announced it has settled on the generic name of mycoxafloppin. Also considered were mycoxafailin, mydixadrupin, mydixarizin, mydixadud, dixafix, and
  14. Actually I am only twenty four, but as far as Megan's explanation about why older objectivist aren't around here, is one of the reason's you don't see me posting very often on many subjects. I post what is of interest to me and comment on those areas of interest only. I am not here for debate and argumentation purposes.
  15. Could you please put the page number that this quote is found on so I can read the entire passage and get the proper context?
