Well it is New Years Day and I haven’t yet gone out for a newspaper or read one on line. But before I do either I thought I’d do a little wishful thinking. So, here are a few headlines I would like to see in 09 starting today.
>Barak Obama discovers virtue of rational selfishness and promises to champion it.
>Republican Party discovers individual rights and promises to look into this exciting new concept.
>Supreme Court rules carbon dioxide now a life giving gas and no longer a pollutant.
>George Soros files for bankruptcy.
>Rep. Barney Frank, Christopher Dodd, Maxine Waters et al, admit that their “affordable housing” initiatives have made thousands homeless.
>Congress defeats bill to bring back the “fairness doctrine.”
>Michael Moore files for Bankruptcy.
>NASA fires James Hansen for unsatisfactory work performance and insubordination.
>Polls show American public beginning to understand that those who call for “affordable housing, health care, education” etc, are the same ones who made these things unaffordable.
>Michigan Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabinow defend automakers’ rights to make the kind of cars the CEOs want to make instead of the kind Congress wants them to make.
>Hiedi Cullen decertified as meteorologist.
>Al Gore’s speech on global warming cancelled due to extreme cold. Or lack of attendance.
These are just a few of my favorite things from a much longer list. But alas, I must now go get a newpaper and get back to the real world. Thank goodness for Objectivism.
