  6. Dr. Peikoff on The Mosque in Manhattan at Ground Zero

    For your information. If you think the FBI is going to inflitrate and monitor what is going on inside any of the Mosques, think again. There are a couple of interviews with a former FBI agent (in disguise) out at PJTV. The two part series is titled “The Islamic Infiltration”. The former FBI agent says that the FBI is showing their investigative techniques to members of the Muslim Brotherhood, to check if those methods are offensive to Muslim sensibilities. Basic subscription is required to view these videos (only $5 p/month). If I can promote membership, you would be able to watch all of their weekly shows for the last 1 1/2 years including "The Frontpage with Allen Barton" which features either Yaron Brook or Alex Epstein.

  7. Yaron Brook on Glenn Beck's program

    Yes, I saw the program. I liked the fact that he repeatedly held up the Atlas Shrugged book and told his 2 million viewers to read it. I sent out an email alert a day in advance to my local Tea Party group to watch the show. Amazon reports sales of Atlas Shrugged increased. David McBride
  8. Happy Birthday to Prometheus

  11. Tea Party Study Group

    Ray, I agree with what you say. Some religious people are not open to any viewpoint different from their own, and it is true that some of them will part company when they find out you are an atheist. But I am not there to reach them. I am their to 1) work with them on common goals (already stated) and 2) to share rational ideas with them. Most of them have no idea what to do to change the government. After 19 years of studying objectivism and the books from Second Renaissance I have a bunch of ideas. Everybody is allowed to give their opinion during the meetings. Most of them respectfully listen to just about everything I say. David McBride
  12. Tea Party Study Group

    I have recently helped start and am an informal leader of a local Tea Party study group in Kearney, NE. We are currently working on the statewide petition to amend the State of Nebraska Constitution to allow for recall elections (a lot of people are mad at Senator Ben Nelson). The next petition down the road is for Nebraska to have a Sovereignty admendment. The group meets weekly to keep abreast of our petitions, politics (local, state and federal) and to study books. I was able to talk them into studying "A Familiar Exposition of the United States Constitution" by Joseph Story. I got it from Second Renaissance Books in the 90's. They are eager for ideas. The problem I have is what to do about the baggage they have. All of them are christians (baptists, catholics). Several of them are former members of a now defunct John Birch Society. So far during the actual meeting time, the group is focused on the petitions, politics, and the book we are reading and discussing. However, the small talk at the beginning and especially at the end of the meeting (but occasionally during the meeting) is on their favorite pet topic(s), the trilateral commission secretly running the world behind the scenes, illegal immigrants create crime and steal jobs, abortion, and the assortment of books, dvd's that you really must see. The leader of the group does a good job of keeping the meeting focused on the task at hand, however he agrees with most of those idiotic ideas. I am interested is do's and don'ts in order to preserve my own credibility, and to show them there are atheists who are not socialists. David McBride
  13. Romney drops out of the race

    Romney has dropped out of the race.
  14. Here is a website with a list of Governor Huckabee's bad decisions. See the list of how many times he used his power to pardon criminals. More pardons than the surrounding six states combined (703 times including 12 murderers). Including a rapist (Wayne Dumond) who 1 year later moved to Missouri and raped and murdered Carol Shields.

    Polish Divorce A Polish man moved to the USA and married an American Girl. Although his English was far from perfect, they got along very well until one day he rushed into a lawyer’s office and asked him if he could arrange a divorce for him. The lawyer said that getting a divorce would depend on the circumstances, and asked him the following questions: Have you any grounds? Yes, an acre and half and nice little home. No, I mean what is the foundation of this case? It made of concrete. I don’t think you understand. Does either of you have a real grudge? No, we have carport and not need one. I mean. What are your relations like? All my relations still in Poland. Is there any infidelity in your marriage? We have hi-fidelity stereo and good DVD player. Does your wife beat you up? No, I always up before her. Is your wife a nagger? No, she white. Why do you want this divorce? She going to kill me. What makes you think that? I got proof. What kind of proof?
