    No, you're not a loon or a moonbat. You're a libertarian. Really, nothing more needs to be said. Most of us read Rand in college and rejected it for the bull**** that it is. Some of you saw it differently and thought she was the second coming.

    Those who are greedy are those who envy.

    Success is not greed, entitlement is greed.

    You obviously have a problem with success and you obviously believe (or have been brainwashed to believe) that you're entitled to more then you can produce for yourself.. You obviously have it in your mind that someone owes you something and it's the labor unions or the governments responsibility to get you what you believe is owed to you. Maybe you could achieve success if you dropped the whole "someone owes me something" attitude.

    The question you have to ask yourself is: do you want peanuts or a peanut farm?

    Quit speaking for others, and quit using the term "most of us."

    You keep on proving you're a collectivist when you spew that "most of us" crap.

    I bet you think you're so unique for playing follow the leader...

    BTW, Ayn Rand didn't invent liberalism, hell the Magna Carta was manifested in 1215, apparently that isn't taught in college because they didn't when I went to the reeducation camp aka college.

    Yeah, most of the fascists in this thread that wanted her fired for making a stupid picture are trying to do so out of some kind of fake support for the troops. Most of them will cry and whine when someone "disrespects" the troops, but haven't themselves lifted a single finger to help any of them.

    Uh, no she shouldn't. This is the epitome of stupid.

    These people that think she should be are absolutely nuts and are looking to ruin someone's life just for their own satisfaction.

    Chill out? You try to tell me I disrespect our military, and then imply that I didn't serve honorably, and you want me to chill out?

    When I knock your teeth out, then I will chill.

    Or you could just apologize for being so dishonest.

    Oh I think using the term 'most of us' is perfectly justified in this case. Libertariansim as a philosophy has been thoroughly rejected by 'most of us', as witnessed by any recent election. Except in Kentucky, of course, but they still believe in Creationism there.

    No, Ayn Rand didn't invent 'liberalism'. She didn't even invent 'libertarianism'. She merely perverted it. And found plenty of willing followers. Kind of like L. Ron Hubbard in that regard. Some folks will believe anything.

    I learned about the Magna Carta in high school.

    Yes. I have issues with someone lying and saying I disrespect the military.
    Yes. I have issues with someone implying I did not serve honorably.

    Now lets talk about your issues. Oh wait, I get infracted for that.
