In fact, I would think someone like you would have had to have read the book to have such a strong view on it and be protesting it in your sig. Frankly, I don't care about it and it means nothing to me.

    As for her, I have no opinion of her. I never bothered to care enough to even learn that much about her and I don't care if you want to blast her to your hearts content. Have fun with it really. I think it tells something about you when you bring her up in discussion for no reason like you from time to time.
    That fine and dandy. You can call yourself what you want to call yourself. Its a free country.

    And others can identify what they see in your posts and in your views and compare them to others who sound a whole lot like your are in mutual agreement about many things.

    That is part of freedom and liberty. God Bless America!!!

    Apparently not since you admitted your own lack of awareness about these things under discussion.

    Paranoid demonizing hackery in the form of calling the opposition extremist names =/= awareness.

    I know plenty about Rand, Niet, Mach and the rest. You're not talkin' to an uneducated, intellectual child. Spare me your condescension.

    Interesting viewpoint. So am I correct in assuming that you feel a company showing a profit despite X number of humans being harmed or killed as a direct result of the company's actions is still a "moral" entity?

    The one term Marxist did spend his formative years in Islamic Indonesia. He has occasionally stumbled and spoke of his Muslim, er Christian faith. And an interviewer did say that the one term Marxist did recite the Islamic call to prayer in arabic. So you may have a kernel of truth there.
