  1. The statists are already framing their straw men; "Corporation=Person" and "Money=Speech", much like they did with the ever popular "Health Insurance=Health Care" and "Health care is a right" proposition. Will these fallacies "stick" and allow their argument to gain traction? Unfortunately, I think they probably will as usual.
  2. The "auto-tuning" thing may be getting kind of played out but... Symphony of Science - 'Our Place in the Cosmos' (ft. Sagan, Dawkins, Kaku, Jastrow)

  4. Me likey. This is one of my most favorite recent videos. Starring Reps. Bachmann and Boehner as the heroes defending against the power hungry "witch" who uses her "Special Speaker Powers" for the purposes of evil. "Let's 'vote for' jobs! I also enjoyed the funny gags through the rest of the video and an interesting line in the lyrics during the round table 'poker game' discussion. "Win to quit/quit to win."(@1:38) Even though they are referring to Palin, one may ponder John Galt. Edit: As I was posting this, I'd just figured out the Waxman puppetry reference. Ha!
  5. Hi, I'm new to the forum. Good question and answers. Wouldn't one first ask what will be the value gained and what may be the total cost (F. D'Anconia)? In the above examples: Canaris was found out and executed(paid a price), one can only imagine the fate of the politician who proclaims to a group of collectivist types. If the value to be gained is exceeded by the cost of your life .....then there's the question of risk(gambling)........................ uh, excuse me.....nice meetin' you guys, I have to go read more Rand.
