Objectivism in Practice

A very nice piece on John Allison and BB&T, in the National Review, of all places: Objectivist Philosophy for Fun and Profit: John Allison isn’t your typical bank executive. For one thing, when he retired at the end of last year as CEO of BB&T — a North Carolina–based bank with more than 1,500 branches […]

Not Enough Money for Obama

It’s nice to read decent pieces from non-Objectivists: There is Not Enough Money To Pay for Obama’s Unprecedented Spending Spree: We were in a fiscal hole when President Obama came into office and for 100 days he’s been digging it deeper and deeper.  The numbers involved are astonishing and power is being concentrated in the […]

The Guns of Nihilism – On Obama and the Pirates

Seems like Obama wasn’t completely honest about his administration’s role in the recent pirate crisis. In The Guns of Nihilism, Ed Cline lays out the meaning of the crisis and America’s response to it: I freely admit to parodying the title of a great adventure film here, “The Guns of Navarone” ( 1961, directed by […]

The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale […]

Pirate Bay: Guilty

Pandora on the Palm Pre

I’m a huge Pandora fan, and so I’m really looking forward to Pandora on the Palm Pre:

On Obama’s Foreign Policy

It’s difficult sometimes to decide whether to mark something as “Food” or “Poison”. This piece, a good, albeit chilling, piece on Obama’s foreign policy: A Snapshot of Obama’s Obscene Foreign Policy is exactly such a thing–is it “Food” because it educates on an important topic, or “Poison” because the topic itself is terrible. I’ll opt for “Food” […]
