  1. Yeah, this was pretty recently after I read the book and I discovered the historical facts a couple years later.
  2. HOLY SHIT I meet Jimmy Fallon a couple years ago, I was working with him. He was a really cool, down-to-earth guy. I was in a crowd on set and everyone was talking about their favorite authors and I said my was Ayn Rand and he said never heard of her, and I suggested he look her up. I also gave the run down on the meaning of dollar sign to another person, and Fallon was in earshot. I wonder if...
  3. Well, I forget people would rather sit on their ass and bitch and complain then do anything. You're missing out, looks like he is hard at work thinking of answers to these questions...
  4. http://www.whitehouse.gov/openforquestions/ Google's front page was plugging this. Figured there would be some questions we can all think of.
  5. http://www.businessweek.com/careers/manage...ws+%2B+analysis This is a article criticizing the letter. I'd post my thoughts, but I'm out the door and I'm shutting this thing down. I'll get back to it in a couple hours.
  6. Despite the reasons he said he was giving, I think there is also more two. It's like saying "If this is going to cause so many problems, I'll give it away, but the government sure as hell isn't going to get it's hands on it" I think that's admirable and within his self-interest, but as Zip pointed out -- not the only option. As sNerd and Jake Ellison pointed out, he was and feels threatned. It's a self-defensive measure too, so the mob and their pitchforks don't come banging on your door... but the mob still doesn't get the money, they just don't have any reason to bother this man and his fam
  7. So, I've been thinking about going to the University of Florida for my MBA, then I saw this... Ehhhhh... maybe not?
  8. I've been wanting to read it Gladwell's work. When I get a chance too, I'll post a mini-review here.
  9. So, the criteria for running with the GOP is to be outwardly religious? Why is that? Would anyone here say that Giuliani is more well-reasoned and rational than the people he ran against in his own party? (That's supposed to be "aren't" or better yet, "are not the". Late night typos.)
  10. I can shot the following holes in that. A.) Edited or not, it doesn't change the fact that he said it. So why should I just ignore it because it appeared on a certain network? B.) Having millions of fans does not make you right. See: Hitler, Chavez, (Bin Laden?) C.) You act like this is the only exposure I've ever had to Limbaugh. I just showed this as one of many examples of this man being despicable. I guess it all depends on where you set you standards then. Which is an interesting point of discussion for all Objectivists on this board. This could be true.
  11. You're dropping the context. I never said they were "pro-capitalism" or at least what we considered "pro-capitalism", I was illustrating that Obama has not satisfied the criteria for being a blatant socialist although there is a lot of dialogue that suggests he is a socialist. I like defined terms and objective measures. When judging something, you need to look at the facts, not subjective interpretation. In the context of this thread and what was said... it does actually raise some issues. Obama had moments of showing support for "free-markets" and this is enough for socialists to cri
  12. I'd say he appears anti-intellectual because of his choice of words and methods of argument. He resorts to name calling and childish antics. Like with Fox, he didn't bother checking the facts before he said "he must of been off his meds" ... He doesn't appear to think about things before he just says them. Also, I agree with what themadkat was saying. She's listened to him for years and doesn't hold in high esteem so I don't think insisting that listening to him more makes everything magically better. Let's see him write a doctoral thesis if he's so much more intellectual than all th
  13. If MSNBC said gravity existed would you stop thinking gravity existed? That's the typical conservative response to any and all criticisms, "bias!" "agenda!" "the MSM" "intellectuals!" Does he have have the actual transcript from the actual show in question on there? Please link that instead. I don't have time to sip through his backpedaling revisions of what he actually said. Yeah, people who think and vote in the exact way he does. I've never seen him care to much about anyone else. No matter how long you listened to him, that doesn't change the what he sa
  14. More like this is what's needed. More evidence from our Intelligience Agencies.
