Ayn Rand and the Tea Party

I find it curious and a bit amusing that Ayn Rand is the darling of the Tea Party movement. She is a famous  atheist and that is not the case with most Tea Party supporters. I am guessing that Tea Party supporters are not in the liberal category of theists. Her primacy of existence view would not be supported, or even understood, by the vast majority of Tea Party members.

The Odd Libertarian Conception of Freedom

But this just highlights what a strange philosophy libertarianism is. While libertarians claims to be driven by a goal of maximizing freedom, what they mean by "freedom" is not what most people take that word to mean. To a libertarian, the only freedom that really matters is freedom from government intrusion. But often, meaningful freedom can only be created through government intervention.

Great stereo version of The Beach Boys doing Surfin', here, available for downloading.

I have a lot of stereo Beach Boys but was missing this one. Kind of forgot about this hit. The Beach Boys sound so much better in stereo.

This site is way cool!

You think of a character and it plays 20 questions to get the answer.

I thought of Atticus Finch and it got it!

Happy New Year

It's now 2010. The new year used to be a concern when writing checks. Not anymore. I now use on-line banking to pay bills. I'm also stuck with out-of-date stamps.
