From Noodlefood: On Rand and Hickman

Noodlefood's Diana Hsieh posted a video response about the Rand/Hickman thing; thorough, with many good points. Similarly to my own comparison of Rand's critics with Rand's accusations against sympathetic reviews of Seance on A Hot Afternoon, she points out the critic's own projections onto Rand's early, immature views.

Video Footage from Occupy Philadelphia

"One Soviet flag at a rally is not indicative of the movement," or, so I'm told. Well, these people had no qualms about marching alongside it, or the banner from the Democratic Socialists of America, so, guilt by association, I say.

Here's my footage of what the mainstream media won't show you. See for yourself. Better yet, if you can, go see it live, and witness the socialist recruitment tables set up at City Hall. (Oh, and that last one, with that "goddamn Ayn Rand book"...well,don't get exited; that was just me.)

Ayn Rand vs. "Occupy Wall Street"

It was a dirty job, taking those protest pictures...(literally; the New York situation is literally getting stinky and unsanitary.)

Fortunately, I brought some disinfectant:

Sorry, Roseanne; that "goddamn Ayn Rand book" is not going away.

"Occupy Philadelphia": The Pictures They Won't Show On Prime Time

This is the image you'll likely see in the media coverage of "Occupy Wall Street," Philadelphia-style:

How adorable. 

But it's bullshit. 

Here is what saw, in person. When Roseanne Barr says she wants a mix of capitalism and socialism ("people-ism), you may think she's thinking of those kids. But look at these pictures, and remember that she said that bankers should be "beheaded." 

As has been said, "All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war."
