Galt walks - Is competetion bad ?

Lets say your a highschool coach hired to instill a sense of achievement and competion in your team.  Your team is greatly succesful, to the point where they crush a competing team, a complete shutout.  Does your employer thank you for a job well done?  No they demand you apologize for doing your job.  What would be your response?

Well Micah Grimes - Coach of the Covenant school who was put in this position after his team won a 100-0 victory over a local rival, refused and was in turn fired.

Good for you Micah apologizing for doing your job to the best of your ability is teaching your ki

Have Yourself a Merry Little Bailout

Posse Whatzit?

Marines Stationed at drunk driving check points in California. Good times were had by all. Proof that its not just the constitution at risk.

As democratic underground reports...

Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) Provost Marshal (head of a unit of military police) and the local California Highway Patrol office will begin working together 12/12 — and through the holiday season — in a joint effort to reduce accidents and drinking and driving.

United We Fail

HAHAHA

PJ O'Rourke Visits Our Dreams of the Future

PJ O'Rourke (Token Republican at various mags) points out that as a culture even our dreams of tomorrow are slipping. He's a funny guy, but in this case his commentary is a sad reflection of humanities slip from utopian to dystopian dreams.

When our parents were kids, the future was fashioned in Buck Rogers gleaming art deco splendor, celebrating the triumph of man and science. Now we have dark visions of bleak corporate nightmares filled with mucus and smog.

England’s Net Nanny

England seems to be further and further along the curve on the path to totalitarianism.  From this side of the pond, it serves as a wonderful Panopticon to see where the erosion of privacy and civil rights in this country are headed.

Molon Labe! and Going Galt

I am Andrew Ryan and I'm here to ask you a question: Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

No, says the man in Washington, it belongs to the poor.

No, says the man in the Vatican, it belongs to God.

No, says the man in Moscow, it belongs to everyone.

This is the opening monolog to Bioshock, a libertarian dystopian video game. Sadly these days the man in Washington is saying it belongs to just about anyone we say it does - including large corporations, bankers and pretty much any company who has the ear of a congressman and a poor business model.

The Government We Deserve

So Obama has been crowned, this is a man who openly advocates wealth redistribution, aggressive carbon taxes which in his own words will drive the cost of electricity sky high, and consorts with avowed communists.  Buckle up folks because the next 4 years will be interesting, lets hope our country can withstand it.

To quote a famous wizard, we will be getting exactly what we deserve.

Greenspan enters the Confessional

The blogverse is a buzz with the news that big Al Greenspan, former drinking buddy of the high priestest of Libertarianism Ayn Rand, has come into congress and admitted that he was wrong about banks regulating themselves for their own best interest and long term survival.  Ms. Rand’s Corpse was clocked spinning at mach 3 in her grave over in Valhalla NY.

The Harsh Reality of Democracy

America is accelerating downhill from is position of prominence in the world, India and China are both on the ascent, but still our politicians are whoring themselves to the power of the masses for a few extra votes.  The glory of democracy is that everyman has a vote, the harsh reality is that most who do vote are selfish jackasses who will gladly sell long term economic growth for a buck today.
