Stay for the End

January 23rd, 2009 by Bill Brown · 12 Comments · Comment Contest Friday

Many blogs do a caption contest every Friday wherein the blogger posts a picture and then visitors leave their take on an appropriate and funny caption for that photo. I really enjoy contributing to those sorts of things, but it doesn’t seem appropriate for TNC so how about a comment contest on Fridays. We select an article—nothing too lengthy—and you supply a comment analyzing it. Our commenters thus far have been exceedingly insightful so I’ll be most interested to read your take. Winner gets a free RSS subscription to TNC!

Added bonus: Ashton Kutcher’s treatise on “Creating a Nation of Philanthropists, One Pledge at a Time” {via}

    I sacrificed enough just watching this video to the end.

    The individual is nothing! The Community is all!!

    Difficult to watch. Without Rand, I think I would have turned out to be just such a Lefty as I was gung-ho liberal like these kids when I was in college. I read ‘Anthem’ as a senior and then leftism was dead to me.

  • Harold

    What? I pledge to be a servant to our President and to all mankind? Do we have royalty in this country?

    No seriously, this is really sickening guys 🙁

  • L-C

    Aww, they cut right before the part with the guns and the police. :/

    How come they always skip that? I guess reality’s about to become R-rated.

  • Joseph Kellard

    They asked me my pledge, so here goes: I pledge to further pursue my own values, goals and happiness. And I plan to do more of this without making any mention of how my pursuits actually, secondarily, make the world a better place.

    Just to let you know, my segment was cut from this video.

    “A servant to our president”, eh?

    An astonishing panorama of the endtimes. They must be fought. I’ll see you on the intellectual barricades.

  • Richard

    I pledge to trap myself inside a late 90’s Gap commercial, parrot whatever the second hand demagogues tell me and to be the biggest tool I can be each and every day.

  • Trader G

    Clearly, we need more Lemon Pledge.

  • Richard2

    I pledge to mist my orchids twice a day, instead of just once.

    All that video deserves is ridicule. Demi M you have hooked up with a demi-brain (a.k.a. half-wit)

  • Roger Theriault

    I’m with Mr. Kellard. I pledge to further pursue my own values, goals, and happiness. While doing that, I further pledge to not be a burden on any of my fellow citizens in any way whatsoever.

  • rob sama

    I skipped to the end. I’m still amazed at how eager lefties are willing to sieg heil. Pledging to serve the President? Nice work guys…

  • EdMcGon

    I’m still amazed they use the pictures of Obama which look like old Nazi or communist propaganda posters. Either the irony is lost on them, or…
