Would You Please Take Control of My Life?

September 26th, 2011 by Myrhaf · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

I heard the clip on the radio. I can’t force myself to watch the video. A smarmy rich liberal asks Obama, “Would you please raise my taxes?” So why don’t these rich leftists start a campaign to get the wealthy to volunteer to give more money to the federal government? They don’t need to wait […]

Now they put out an even more ham-handed attempt to intimidate Americans: Attack Watch. It is currently being laughed off the internet, which is a good sign. The Democrats […]

On Facebook Betsy Speicher links to a remarkable 1943 letter from Ayn Rand to a Reverend. The letter is for sale on eBay for $4,999. A few questions come to mind after reading the letter. Do these thoughts represent Ayn Rand’s mature philosophic thinking? Is it realistic to believe Christianity could resolve its moral contradictions […]
