THROBBING LIBERTY

craiganthonywells:

I must admit that it bothers me when I see objectivists who are icon worshipers of Ayn Rand and her work.

Her philosophy is individualism; the aim is not to reproduce the great, but to become great by ones own right.

I get it, she was one of the greatest thinkers of modern times, and I understand that respect ought to be paid to that, but don’t get a tattoo of “I swear that by my life etc.”, don’t cry “Who is John Galt?” at every possible opportunity, and don’t use Rand as your only source of wisdom.

If the Fountainhead has inspired you to become and architect or one of her quotes has inspired you to achieve, that is great- but what really matters is that you become your own inspiration. Make up your own mantra to define your life. Set your personal goal and work for it. Be proud of what you have achieved. Don’t become a follower of a cult.

Ultimately, Ayn Rand is just a woman of the past who fought to make her future better. You are alive; you arethe future- and the future cannot be created by repeating the past. Look to the present. Don’t try to be anyone but yourself, only better.

None of those

Let’s be real here just for one minute

If you watch, and enjoy, animes like K-On!, then you have no right to shit on bronies. They’re made for the same demographic. Hell, at least with My Little Pony, there’s some semblance of thought put into the episodes’ stories, meanwhile in K-On!, it’s literally Cute Girls Doing Cute Things(tm), over and over. There’s no semblance of story outside of the last arc of season 2, when the three are graduating. It tugs at my heartstrings (ok I cried like a bitch), but fuck me if there’s anything Oscar worthy in there (or whatever award goes to animated films).

With MLP, there’s actually conflict, and characters attempting to resolve it. Hell, if you tried, you could take that setting and make something legitimately good out of it, it just happens to be made for 6-year-olds (and have horses as the main species). Well done or not, that’s personal taste, but you haven’t watched the show if you’re going to say that there’s nothing going on in each episode. Even further, the ponies are no more cartoonized than other cartoon characters, especially compared to Lauren Faust’s other work. Your standard CGDCT is designed, specifically, to look cute and innocent. I would say that this is probably creepier for adult males to watch. MLP just has little girls as a target demographic. The characters in CGDCT shows literally are little girls; at best, they’re high schoolers that are designed to look like little girls.

Oh, and everyone who’s going to say “Well good thing I don’t watch CGDCT anime then!” well good for you, you can feel superior to someone who has absolutely no effect on your life except looking silly on the internet and giving you material to circlejerk to all your friends about.

There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.

ISIL executed surrenders of Iraq Special Operations Forces (ISOF)

(WARNING: GRAPHIC)

Hate these guys..

Why. Why would they surrender? Everyone knows they’ll be executed if captured by them. God damn these people are pieces of shit.

In 1944, and entire battalion of Army Rangers surrendered in Italy when they were out of ammunition. In 1995, Spetsnaz troops surrendered in Grozny. When you’re out of ammo and surrounded, you have three choices- die getting shot by the other dude as you try a suicidal charge and end up doing nothing, kill yourself, or surrender and hope for the best.

If you were in this situation, what can you honestly say you’d do?

Fight till the last breath. Tear them apart with your bare hands. Take one or two down with you.

Yeah, right. Because you, the dude armed with an M4 that’s out of ammo and no bayonet, suddenly possess more courage than someone from Spetsnaz.

Right.

Don’t mean to sound like a big bad internet tough guy but for one I wouldn’t not have a bayonet

The Middle East was pretty peaceful before the West arrived tyvm. Non-muslims were welcomed and respected, we had a democracy etc. Yeah you had your Kurds vs whoever but you could literally find that anywhere (Japan/China/Korea Italy vs Greeks, etc.) and it wasn't as violent as before. Our culture was pretty peaceful too my Grandma could basically walk half naked without fear of being buried alive, child brides were illegal etc.

Hahahahaha okay.

One word: Janissars, and your bullshit crumbles. The muslim world has done the exact same as the rest of humanity throughout history, be it building empires, enslaving others or going to war to expand. The peaceful muslim world would have conquered and subjugated Europe had that not been stopped. 

How did the Muslim world become Muslim in the first place m8

Just think— guns have a constitutional amendment protecting them and women don’t

Eleanor Smeal, President of the Feminist Majority Foundation (via arcticdiscos)

The right of the people to bear arms…

Are women people? I sure think so. The amendment is about protecting a right held by the people, not the guns. Well there’s one amendment protecting women.

Then you’ve got the first amendment, which i believe applies to women among everyone else.

Then you have the third amendment which applies to people that own homes. Women can own property. 

Then there’s the fourth. Last I checked women are also protected from unreasonable searches and seizures.

Then there’s the fifth, applies to all US citizens, women included. Are you starting to see a trend here?

The sixth provides due process for American citizens. Yes, women are citizens too.

The seventh is related to trial by jury. Something that women have a right to.

The eighth prohibits cruel and unusual punishment and also applies to women.

Other than the now repealed amendment relating to prohibition there are another 18. All of these put women in the same category as everyone else because each outlines the right of the people and last I checked women are people.

Is this not good enough for you? Do you need some sort of special “women only amendment?” Other than the 19th which ensures the right of women to vote? What would the new women’s amendment read? Give me an example of what sort of issue it would address to “protect” women.

As a Muslim I am appalled that you would attack sex in this manner. The Prophet Muhammad introduced Aiisha to pleasure at 6. The right man of faith in Allah can teach the children right.

Actually, this isn’t humor. It’s horror. The last thing America needs is another statist president. Bush and Obama already have done enough damage.
