  5. Jackie Evancho - Someone An Objectivist Can Admire.

    Well said.
  6. There is a video here: http://www.amazon.com/Songs-Silver-Screen-Jackie-Evancho/dp/B008R3EYWM/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1348953064&sr=1-1&keywords=jackie+evancho Her website: http://www.jackieevancho.com/us Her Facebook page, which you can Like: http://www.facebook.com/jackieevancho?fref=ts WHAT A VOICE! AND SO SMART!
  7. The movie is quite good by Objectivist standards. The story - full of brilliant minds, and cool machines, and a love of machines, books and people of action, and heroism, and fighting bad guys. Just like the Ayn Rand fans should be. And the movie making - *superb*. Martin Scorsese did an *amazing job*. Acting is wonderful too. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0970179/ If you have seen it, or read the book, chime in. Again, this is not an Objectivist work; it is overwhelmingly good, but not "perfect" so let's focus on the good qualities here.
  8. We should all look into and be aware of the ongoing events with LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick. Please read the History and Status tabs of the site below: https://www.fitzpatrickldf.org/status/#.UGO6NI6yoso Darrell Cody

  10. If you are not already active, involved with the Tea Party, get involved. Totalitarianism is made one step at a time. Obamacare mandate, SCOTUS ruling and now this: New York OKs nation's first ban on super-sized sugary drinks http://news.yahoo.com/york-oks-nations-first-ban-supersized-sugary-drinks-154425573--sector.html Get active. Find your local Tea Party here: http://www.teapartypatriots.org/ Recommend Atlas Shrugged to everyone, and read the ARI's 'What Can I Do?' page: http://www.aynrand.org/site/PageServer?pagename=participate_arc_activism
  11. So, who has contacted their local Tea Party to actually do something about this?
  12. Well pointed out. Anyway - get active, everybody. Tea Party, etc.. Today. You, yes, you.
  13. About the murders at the U.S. embassies in the Middle East - http://news.yahoo.com/clashes-egypt-over-film-protests-spread-115710576--finance.html Those of who care for freedom and a safe America - get active. Where Reason ends, violence begins. And there is A LOT of non-Reason in America today. Get active - the life you save could be your own - since we are all Ayn Rand fans.

    That's what Ayn Rand looked like when she smiles! Maybe we don't see enough pic's of that.
  15. Ayn Rand silver medallion

    The image looks great. It looks like the image on the cover of the ARI Archivist Jeff Britting's biography of her seen here: http://www.amazon.com/Ayn-Rand-Jeffrey-Britting/dp/1585674060/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347166488&sr=8-1&keywords=Ayn+rand+jeff+britting Dan Rohr and the designer who did this even gave a dramatic, perhaps even artistic, emphasis of Ayn Rand's famous "penetrating eyes". The image looks just like her. I like it!

    People - let's be happy someone is being productive and doing something tangible to advocate these good ideas and make a better world to live in instead of criticizing his product, or the producer, ok?

Learn more about Johnson at: GaryJohnson2012.com 9:00pm to 10:00pm Richard Kostelanetz writes: Having published in 2003 a book about a NYC community which I'd lived for three decades and knew well, I thought it appropriate to write another book, not quite a sequel, about the NYC community to which I once planned to move. If my SoHo was about the rise and fall of an artists' colony in whose history I fully participated, so this sequel would be about a decline that preceded my participation in its revival as NYC's premier beach town. As in its predecessor, I would combine objective description and history with personal experience, establishing complementary truths. If my SoHo memoir portrayed how an art world developed within NYC, but not quite of it, this book portrays a string of Atlantic beach towns, a group different from others along the East Coast in its incorporation into a great city. (Miami Beach, recall, is legally separate from Miami.) I suppose that if the development of NYC has proceeded differently over the past two centuries, NY could have become not just a port city but also a beach city, much like Rio de Janeiro, whose black and white mosaic path between the street and the beach became a popular promenade for everyone, even businessmen discussing deals that are then consummated when someone pulls out some paper or, nowadays, a laptop computer for recording details. If the libertarian theme of the first book held that an industrial slum was transformed not by any city planning but the spontaneous collaboration of hundreds of young people mostly artists who discovered that industrial spaces could be occupied, the theme of my Rockaways is that the central city undermined it in various ways after World War II. It is now coming back thanks to small entrepreneurs. I hope to show in conjunction with my talk to do a PowerPoint presentation of historic images from the Rockaways. It draws upon my Kindle ebook: " The Rockaways: The Fall and Rise of NYC's Beach Towns:" tiny.cc/Rockaways Richard Kostelanetz is a writer and artist. He often attends Junto.

  20. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

    Dark Knight Rocks! I love the happy ending, and the proselytization of a bad girl like Seline - Catwoman - into a hero. That's always SO satisfying.
  21. 3 young women have been jailed for singing a song protesting Putin in Russia. This is a SICK breach of justice.
