Ayn Rand Railed Against Government Benefits, But Grabbed Social Security and Medicare When She Needed Them
By Joshua Holland
Ayn Rand was not only a schlock novelist, she was also the progenitor of a sweeping “moral philosophy” that justifies the privilege of the wealthy and demonizes not only the slothful, undeserving poor but the lackluster middle-classes as well.
Her books provided wide-ranging parables of "parasites," "looters" and "moochers" using the levers of government to steal the fruits of her heroes' labor. In the real world, however, Rand herself received Social Security payments and Medicare benefits under the name of Ann O'Connor (her husband was Frank O'Connor).
As Michael Ford of Xavier University's Center for the Study of the American Dream wrote, “In the end, Miss Rand was a hypocrite but she could never be faulted for failing to act in her own self-interest.”.............

House Republicans Are Already Redefining 'Rape'

 Jim Newell,
Give them credit: It's only January, but the new Republican-controlled House is already obnoxiously redefining "rape" in pieces of legislation. Under their plan, only abortions from "forcible rape" would be eligible for government funding, instead of the much simpler "rape."

not too much to add here

she's in her own world. what sort of person would want to send our men and women into war THEN IF THEY COME BACK DENY THEM FULL BENEFITS? you tell me you fuckers who elected  her. you just tell me

Bachmann eyes cuts to veterans health benefits
By Sahil Kapur
WASHINGTON – Tea party hero Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) this week proposed a blueprint to eliminate $400 billion from the federal budget, which included billions in cuts to veterans' health care and disability benefits.
Her plan would freeze health care funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and slash $4.5 billion in disability benefits to military veterans.
Bachmann posted the document on her official Web site, calling the spending cuts "real and necessary" to avoid increasing the debt ceiling above $14.3 trillion. She supports the United States wars in Iraq and Afghanistan..............

Veterans Of Foreign Wars Slams Bachmann's Proposed Benefit Cuts

Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-MN) budget proposal to impose freezes and cuts on veterans' benefits is now picking up the scathing objections of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Some key quotes from the organization's press release:
"No way, no how, will we let this proposal get any traction in Congress," said Richard L. Eubank, the national commander of the 2.1 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. and its Auxiliaries.


"I want the congresswoman to join us in a tour of the Minneapolis VA Medical Center and Poly Trauma Center the next time she's in her home district to witness firsthand the great work the VA does every day to heal their wounds and ease their pain. Then I want her to look those disabled veterans in the eye and tell them their service and sacrifice is too expensive for the nation to bear.

"The day this nation can't afford to take care of her veterans is the day this nation should quit creating them," said Eubank..................

and he's becoming MORE AND MORE off kilter. he's grabbing thoughts and ideas and theories from goddess only knows where. he IS over the edge. the fact ANYONE believes one word he says is more frightening than the man himself. he is NOT going to be fired. he is NOT going anywhere (unfortunately)

To target Fox News over 'Nazi' label, rabbis make use of Murdoch's other media
Washington Post Staff Writer  
 A coalition of rabbis wants Fox News chief Roger Ailes and conservative host Glenn Beck to cut out all their talk about Nazis and the Holocaust, and it's making its views known in an unusual place.
The rabbis have called on Fox News's owner, Rupert Murdoch, to sanction his two famous employees via a full-page ad in Thursday's editions of the Wall Street Journal - one of many other media properties controlled by Murdoch's News Corp.
The ad is signed by the heads of the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements as well as Orthodox rabbis..............

and i had NO idea nabokov was into butterflies. as a matter of fact, i know very little of the man. usually i read up a bit on authors and artists. i don't go overboard mind you but i want to find out a bit about them. i just have never done any digging on nabokov at all.

Cosmo Quickie: Don't Judge the Models

Every so often we take a look at Cosmo's website to see if there's anything blogworthy going on. (Yes, sometimes reading the magazine every month is just not enough torture for us.) I was looking at the site today and noticed an article called The 10 Hottest Texts to Send a Guy. Here are a few of them:

I know you're busy today, but can you add one thing to your to-do list? Me.

you may think you're safer if you kill everyone (including NINE YEAR OLD GIRLS) WHOSE SKIN IS A BIT DARKER THAN YOURS.........but you're NOT safer. you're not safer at all. what you are is a thief of souls. an ugly oozing shell.


Brisenia Flores, Another Nine-Year-Old Girl, Was Shot and Killed in Arizona

Brisenia Flores, 9, was killed on May 30, 2009, when a group led by anti-immigration fighter Shawna Forde raided the girl's family home in the border town of Arivaca, Arizona. Allegedly, the attack was organized in the name of the Minutemen, a crew of vigilante border patrols, who hoped to steal money and drugs to fund their revolution against immigration. The Flores household was attacked mistakenly, for they had no drugs or money, but according to reports, Forde and her cronies commenced to shoot Brisenia's father in the head, killing him, before wounding her mother and eventually, shooting Brisenia in cold blood. Minutemen honcho Shawna Forde's trial is set to open this week. But why has this story not been more thoroughly covered by the media in the meantime?.........

Who Killed Brisenia Flores?

A month ago, anti-immigrant activists brutally shot and killed nine-year-old Brisenia Flores and her father. Brisenia's the adorable little girl to the left.

We cannot stand silent in the face of extremism like this. Please learn more on this page and then help us spread the word by sending this to 10 friends below.
It is up to all of us to tell Brisenia's story.

What does this have to do with the Minutemen and FAIR?

Shawna Forde, the alleged ringleader and one of three suspects arrested in the deadly home invasion, heads up a border "watchdog" group known as the Minuteman American Defense (MAD).............

The Bloody Truth Behind Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric

sally kohn

A week after a white supremacist attacked the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, and on the day that three teenagers are being sentenced in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, for brutally beating and killing a Mexican immigrant, it's time we confront the fact that behind violently anti-immigrant and supremacist rhetoric is a real urge and a real encouragement for actual violence.
On May 30, 2009, a group of armed men and women killed 9-year-old Brisenia Flores and her father in Arivaca, AZ. The vigilantes were Minutemen, members of a "civilian defense corps" that polices the US-Mexico border for undocumented immigrants. When Jason Bush, 34, Shawna Forde, 41, and Albert Gaxiola, 42, allegedly busted down the front door of the Flores home and murdered Raul Junior Flores and his daughter and seriously injured Flores' wife, the armed gang was supposedly looking for drugs and cash to fund their anti-immigrant organization..................


'Minuteman' Leader Allegedly Kills 9 Year-Old and Her Father to Finance Hate Group

By Andrea Nill
This weekend, Shawna Forde, 41, leader of the Minuteman American Defense (M.A.D.) group and two of her associates were arrested in connection with the murder of a 9-year-old girl, Brisenia Flores, and her father, Raul, in Arivaca, AZ. Local police are reporting that Forde and her posse broke into the Flores home dressed as law enforcement officers looking for money and drugs to finance her border watch group with the intention of leaving no witnesses behind..........

Own goal! Mic captures Sky presenters' sexist diatribe against female linesman - and Apprentice star Karren Brady
Sky Sports presenters Andy Gray and Richard Keys were at the centre of a sexism row last night after they questioned whether a female linesman knew the offside rule during a Premier League football match.
The commentators, who apparently believed their microphones were switched off, were recorded making disparaging remarks about Sian Massey, 25, before Liverpool’s Premiership clash with Wolves yesterday..........

.................During the game, which Liverpool won 3-0, Ms Massey angered Wolves by refusing to rule Raul Meireles offside before he set up Liverpool’s first goal. The replay showed that she made the correct decision...................
