Troubling Signs

In Woody's not at all humble opinion, Ayn Rand's contributions to cinema, literature and philosophy are equivalent to the contributions of coprophagy to the art of cuisine.

Woody regards "Tweet" and "Twitter" to be the cries of our rhetorical canaries being extinguished in the IT coal-mine.

Remember when teachers, public employees, libraries, Planned Parenthood, NPR and PBS crashed the stock market, wiped out half of our 401Ks, took trillions in TARP money, spilled oil in the Gulf of Mexico, gave themselves billions in bonuses, and paid no taxes?
Yeah, me neither."

Clarence Darrow, of a slightly earlier generation of Mandarins, said "a criminal is a predatory person without sufficient resources to start a business"...or words to that effect.

Shorter: Don't bother!

When I was being indoctrinated in leftist propaganda(=college) I learned there was some French guy who said that laughter is a social correction mechanism. We laugh at a behavior outside the 'norm' to identify it and bring it back into the 'norm' of behavior.

Your post made me laugh a lot, which in light of what I said above says something very sad about our society today.
