It’s idiotic to compare Canada to the US. Even if Canada didn’t have gun laws, it would less violent. Canadians are different.
I live in New Hampshire, and we have lower crime rates and gun violence than most western European countries yet we have a very high ownership of firearms. How do you explain that? Your comparison falls flat on it’s face.

What did the socialists use to provide light in order to read before the candle? Electricity.

Kind of like the idiots who told us, before 9/11, to sit calmly and abide by the demands of hijackers.

Tell that to the interventionists in both parties. I see conservatives still clinging to the idea the Iraq was a good idea because to admit that it wasn’t would be to admit that team red is wrong or has been wrong. The interventionists are certainly going to try to run the show here too. They count on the short memory span of the average voter who becomes even more forgetful the more fearful they become. The interventionists don’t want you to think about the price-tag either. What’s 1.7T in the Iraq debacle when the debt is 17T? Whats another 17T? They have a printing-press and an anesthetized electorate. Anything goes.

Why? Because he stated a fact- that by removing secular dictators, we ended up with even worse theocratic terrorists to fill the vacuum? He’s right. You can’t talk about ISIS and the like and exclude the full story of the US government’s blunders in foreign policy.
You and he are correct about that, it's other things Rand has said or supports that is the problem. I consider him a rino. And I'm sorry about that too because I once fully supported Rand.
No...it's really not about that. it's about his desire to appeal to "everybody" and his support for Mitch McConnell when we could have had a real conservative in Kentucky. Glenn asked him "Why do you support McConnell" and all he could muster, after the stammering, was "he asked me to"...I don't like someone who is always trying to play both sides against the middle. Stand for America, stand for our strength, stand for being the moral high ground (which, in this world, we are), stand for something other than retreating from the world on foreign policy.

Some times, they do get it right. Don’t just assume because they are leftists, which I’m not fond of, that everything they do is bad. They have taken sides in issues that affected liberty of those who you would assume they would never advocate for:
For a good price, he could go down to Home Depot in the morning and hire some hombres – about 5 of them – and ask them to help him deal with this problem. Some dinero up front, some dinero quando la problem es no mas.

Kelly Ayotte, without even reading the article, who I knew would support Yellen. I need to call a tea-party state senator and beg him to primary against her.

And that’s a collectivist statement, lumping a group of individuals together and proclaiming they all are the same is a fallacy on top of ad hominem. What evidence do you have to support your statement? Why is it so hard to view people as individuals? That this has to even be explained on this site demonstrates that some individuals who purport to be “conservatives” don’t realize the essentials of individualism.

I enjoyed Bryan Suits (war veteran) show when I lived in the Seattle area. Good for him.
@Krishna - tune in on Sunday(?) evenings to KFI AM 640 Los Angeles - you can get it on the web, and get back to listening to Bryan Suits!

Other parts like Detroit? Or how about Oakland? Newark? Philly? Broke-a-fornia? ****-clog-hole? Looter-ville DC? New York? Whatever their views are, the opposite of I will assume are the correct views. And the reality of these places is a testament to this.

Any time a leftist utters the word “invest”, you better hide your wallet.

man, and this was making the rounds on facebook. Something about it seemed to be hype-ish

As Ayn Rand said, a gun is not an argument. Banning something is the same thing as using a gun to say “no, you can’t do this” says the state. “Why?” asks the individual “Because, I said so, and this gun backs up my decision” says the state.
Wouldn’t you rather win with ideas and persuasion?
Tell that to over 200,000 people who died and were tortured dismembered gang raped in the last 15 years. this is a nefarious belief and you are suggesting trying to persuade sociopaths. here's an example of one of the new laws passed in Egypt when Morsi took over, after your wife is dead you can have sex with her within six hours after she's dead...go ahead try and persuade people who are this demented
Sorry fellow, Ann did not like Islam. Was on the Wik , but probably removed.
She didn't care much for homosexuality either.
Ann's lackadaisical world view on religion came about because her relatives were Hebrew fighting and fleeing a Bolshevik Revolution where religion was pandered to by some of the hierarchy of Church. Her family lost everything. This deduction can be clearly made by her defense of Israel, and her vacillating desires pursuing her ambitions and round about association with Cecil B. DeMille. - sorry, eating a delicious bowl of freshly made chicken soup with diced avocados and Town House c-r-a-c-k-e-r-s - excellent.

“Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage—the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors.
Racism claims that the content of a man’s mind (not his cognitive apparatus, but its content) is inherited; that a man’s convictions, values and character are determined before he is born, by physical factors beyond his control. This is the caveman’s version of the doctrine of innate ideas—or of inherited knowledge—which has been thoroughly refuted by philosophy and science. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. It is a barnyard or stock-farm version of collectivism, appropriate to a mentality that differentiates between various breeds of animals, but not between animals and men.
Like every form of determinism, racism invalidates the specific attribute which distinguishes man from all other living species: his rational faculty. Racism negates two aspects of man’s life: reason and choice, or mind and morality, replacing them with chemical predestination.” Ayn Rand

Just like the 20th Century Motor company. Go ahead, try that, and see how they’d produce nothing.

You ought to keep it for yourself. You owe nobody anything except non-aggression. Unless of course it makes you happy to give it away. Ultimately, a person’s happiness and rational self-interest is the highest moral and not what the ethics altruism demand: that a person must sacrifice themselves, being a slave to society or ghost in the heavens, and not be happy in oneself.
