The Los Angeles Rapists miss the playoffs for the first time since 1994. Hehe! That’s what they get!!! Meanwhile the Miami Heat are the number one seed in the East.
Debating with this dude on INTJ-Open. He’s denouncing Ayn Rand’s ideas although he’s never read any of her works. When asked why he’s attacking works he hasn’t bothered to read, he said he hasn’t read them because they’re beneath contempt. This guy has the ability to “know” without knowledge. That’s pretty good. Burn the books! Knowledge is irrelevent because I know how I feel. HAHAHAHA!!
I say read everything. You won’t agree with everything you read but you will always learn something. Sometimes your knowledge base will cause your overall point of view to adjust and that’s not a bad thing. And what better way to attack an idea than to first understand it? You certainly wouldn’t enter a boxing ring against an opponent without first studying the film.
I smoked a cigar yesterday. There is legislation pending in Michigan that would prohibit smoking in all bars and restaurants statewide. This will fuck the restaurant and bar industry causing business to lose money and some will fold but that’s ok. What does the state care about the right of a property owner to allow smoking in his own establishment or whether or not his business turns a profit? The government is not about freedom, it’s about taking freedom away.
Some student got 8 years in prison for vandalizing hummers and other SUVs. Apparantly this guy didn’t know the difference between political protest and crime:
The slogans Cottrell spray-painted onto vehicles included “Fat Lazy Americans,” “No Respect for Earth” and “SUV Terrorism.”
No respect for earth? Try no respect for property rights. SUV terrorism?? What do you call spray painting somebody else’s stuff with the purpose of making people afraid to buy them? Terror! What makes this guy think he should be the final arbiter of what other people can buy with their own money???
Then the guy asked the judge for mercy. Ha! Vandalizing a vehicle is just as cowardly as burning a cross in someone’s yard. In fact, there’s not a substantial difference between the two. In both cases the person crosses the line between free speech and terror. The judge rightly decided that mercy was not warranted in this instance. He said the defendant’s intelligence (he’s a doctoral candidate) should count against him, not work in his favor. In short, he should have known better. And that wraps that up!
