Christ. That asshole deserves a quick shot in the mouth more than just about any human being I've ever read.

Just when you think they couldn't be bigger dicks. "Suck it up" Really? That's your advice. Tell that to someone who lost their home or better yet tell that to someone who lost a family member in Sandy. Fucking Randian pricks.

Every time I see this nonsense I wish there was some way we could run an experiment where half the country has the opportunity to be an Objectivist paradise, and the rest of us can muddle through paying taxes and helping each other out. In a few decades we could see who is happier and more successful.

Within a year the Objectivists would be plotting raids on the other half of the country for food / wealth / slaves. Those types are not capable of surviving in a society where they are actually expected to contribute at all, they are a symptom of poisonous amounts of affluence.

Yeah, those liberal blue states need to just "Suck It Up." It makes me sick the way these people are whining about getting a little water into their homes. Why is this even the governments problem in the first place, don't they have insurance?

They just need to grab a hammer and get to work! (or maybe a shovel?)

What if facilities storing fertilized eggs were damaged or a brain dead bulimic with a feeding tube in her throat was in trouble due to Hurricane Sandy? Then I imagine the right-wing would say the federal government needs to get involved.

They'd get more outraged if their favorite country club got a bunch of water hazards.

There was a really great book already written about an Objectivist paradise. It's called Lord Of The Flies.

One of the other things I wonder about from time to time is, with all those important and productive people in Galt's Gulch, who cleans the toilets or hauls the trash?

Well I hope that statement turns some of the east cost Republicans into Democrats.

A real Galt's Gulch would be like the Jamestown settlement populated only by self-declared "gentlemen", without John Smith to set them straight and force them to work. They'd starve to death.

The one universal trait I've noticed about Randroids is they inevitably have a ridiculously high and inaccurate self-opinion about their own ability to produce something useful. They certainly can't without the surrounding infrastructures they excoriate. For some reason, they seem to think Ayn Rand was talking about THEM when classified only a select few as productive. In reality, anyone who has time to sit around and read that long-winded 1000+ page book probably isn't very productive at all.

I would end up something like this.

re: #12 SidewaysQuark

I'm happy to report that I'm not one of those special "productive" people. On the other hand, I do cook, sew, clean, garden and tinker with things so you might just want to get on my good side in case of an apocalypse...

Ha!
