They come up every day if yer on there. I find some gems from years past. Have at it.


JL from 5 years ago.

The only way to eliminate crony capitalism (the giving of political favors to certain businesses, creating billionaires that didn't earn it except through political pull) is a complete separation of state and economics. If the government had no say in who got money, tax breaks, or regulations we would have true capitalism. Thus we would have true prosperity across the board. And this separation of state and economics is just for the same reason and for the same purpose as the separation of church and state.

Thought for the day.

Happiness is a state of non-contradictory joy—a joy without penalty or guilt, a joy that does not clash with any of your values and does not work for your own destruction, not the joy of escaping from your mind, but of using your mind’s fullest power, not the joy of faking reality, but of achieving values that are real, not the joy of a drunkard, but of a producer.

A friend posted this about the unconstitutional gun ban and subsequent state of emergency in VA. This is getting ugly and rightfully so.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
― Ayn Rand
