Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Exactly right. Or at least from the perspective of a naive and preconceived view of the world (and works of fiction).There is a reason fiction is called... fiction.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Really? Just like Reardan stole the formula from a penniless inventor whom he then murdered?
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: A very well annotated Wiki article disagrees. Link - Business career
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: But you are right about one thing, in that the initial wave was DOS IBM, not Windows.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: It's a NOVEL, for crying out loud.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: I suppose that next you will mention that Ayn Rand never wrote in detail about any of her characters taking a dump.
soy_bomb: grasping at every little petty swipe
Ishkur: This is the man who said he would take a dump to stop plumbing, and did.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: It's a novel. Get over it.
TenJed_77: MeinRS6: So Ryan is "obsessed" with Rand? Give that interviewer a gold start for getting out a false libby talking point and pitching up that softball to Obama when he wasn't sucking on his dick.Want to know what is for teens and dope smoking college freshman that adults should grow out of? Liberalism.Are you going to stay with this alt throughout the entire thread?
Ishkur: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Really? Just like Reardan stole the formula from a penniless inventor whom he then murdered?Did he? ....don't remember that plot point in the book. Or was that a lie spread by the moochers and looters determined to tear him down?Just Another OC Homeless Guy: A very well annotated Wiki article disagrees. Link - Business careerActually, it agrees, Kildall just didn't have the business savvy to press the issue. Your reading comprehension is functionally atrocious.Just Another OC Homeless Guy: But you are right about one thing, in that the initial wave was DOS IBM, not Windows.FTFY.Just Another OC Homeless Guy: It's a NOVEL, for crying out loud.A novel that people seem to regard, accept, and prop up as unerring truth (she also added a post-script to Atlas Shrugged that contained only four words: "And I mean it!"). Her subsequent writings and the founding and advancement of the Objectivist movement is enough proof to assert that she was dead serious about how she thought the world worked and this is what she wanted to be done with it.For that fact alone -- that it is a fable, an over-the-top, bombastic tome of nonsense full of absolutist morality, one-dimensional characters and extremist perceptions of humanity -- that the book is worse than bad, it is downright dangerous, if for no reason than it turns you into an asshole for a few years (if you read it in college like everyone else).And the worst part is we have people running for the highest seats of government who treat this book like a Bible (enough to foist it on every member of his staff).Just Another OC Homeless Guy: I suppose that next you will mention that Ayn Rand never wrote in detail about any of her characters taking a dump.I bet John Galt's dumps were massive, protruding lincoln logs, like powerful dark brown phalluses, so strong and eager to prove their worth that they break through the bowl and clog the sewers. No, not the sewers under his house, but al ...
NewportBarGuy: Kuroshin: I mean, I know you haven't been a Republican for quite a while, but you've fully jumped into the other team, eh?Compared to a party of free rape and perpetual war on the brown people and the poor people... Is there really an option?
Maud Dib: Omahawg: . However, most of them were dead from disease by the time whitey showed up so their influence on their environment was sort of on the wane by then and soon forgotten. See William Cronon's most excellent Changes in the Land for further details.As for as property....yeah....you think some Missouria is gonna just waltz into Kaw territory and start killin ...You mean the diseases that the white man brought?
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: So this genius would be smart enough to invent the stuff, but too stupid to market and sell it effectively? Really?
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: That says everything I am too bored to mention. You obviously have an axe to grind and the inability to actually think about the novel.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Bye.
Blues_X: MeinRS6: Want to know what is for teens and dope smoking college freshman that adults should grow out of? Liberalism.You sound extremish.[photos.imageevent.com image 323x350]
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: First, you sound more than a bit defensive
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Second, know how I know you have NOT read Atlas Shrugged
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: The book is NOT about the rich and powerful -vs- everyone else. Hank Rearden is rich and powerful - but so is the main bad guy, James Taggert.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: No, the book is about the competent person who does not demand sacrifice and refuses to sacrifice him/her self -vs- the incompetent secondhander.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: This is what is so stupid about that Bob the Flower cartoon rant against Rand
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: They, however, share with the rich and powerful there the trait of neither sacrificing nor demanding sacrifice.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: You are either a liar or uncorrectably stupid, or both.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: And I don't waste my time having discussions with such
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Wall of BS in response to Ishkur......And I don't waste my time having discussions with such.
