Objectivist Orgasm alert!! All Black Dan Carter is about to seduce the world, in which he is the most gorgeous creature ever. As his most adoring fan, I think I'll have to do a Dominique!

Shamelessly Shiraz!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-03-31 03:05

After SOLOC 3 in Philadelphia in 2003, it was claimed I had something to do with a Shiraz shortage that afflicted America's East Coast for several months. This claim, while outrageous and slanderous, was probably true. Shiraz has been my mind-alterer of choice for many years now—and my policy on moderation is that it should be practised in moderation, if at all.

Diseased Hsiekovian Chickens' Homecoming — Dem-Scum Redouble Their Treason

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2007-03-23 12:53

Desperate Dem-scum are trying to rush through a measure called the "Murtha Proviso." It would cut funding for the war in Iraq and haul US troops home next year, willy-nilly.

Filth. Utter, unspeakable filth.

Beautiful Song, Beautiful Singing

Please note a rendering of the song "Scenes that Are Brightest" has now been attached to my "Sins that Are Tritest" article below. It's a live recording of my friend Lillian Young, from a concert we both performed in some years ago.

Today's Reprise—Right plus Left = Wrong!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-03-17 09:45

[Originally published in Auckland University's student magazine, Craccum]

Right plus Left = Wrong

Libertarians are often labelled "Right-wing." Some libertarians themselves accept the appellation "libertarian Right." I reject the term altogether. There are too many disagreements, fundamental and incidental, between libertarians and those on the Right of the conventional political spectrum for me to countenance using the same label, however it be qualified.

Jack Wakeland's Letter to the President

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2007-03-08 08:05

Jack Wakeland, associate of "Enemy of Objectivism" Rob Tracinski, has launched a letter-writing campaign to President Bush urging him to be more KASS towards Iran. His own letter to the President is reproduced in Tracinski's excellent TIA Daily today. I commend this approach to the Hsiekovians, and suggest it is vastly superior to voting blanketly for the treacherous Dem-scum who, we learned today, are revving up their campaign to have America commit to withdrawal from Iraq by 2008. I urge every SOLOist to write a letter like this. Note the White House e-mail address below.—Linz

AR = Ayn Rand: Audacious Revolutionary!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-03-06 21:49

[Reprised to commemorate AR's death, 25 years ago today]

Last week I retraced the steps of SOLO in its three brief years of existence. Since I'm still in seasonally nostalgic mode, let me reminisce about the day Ayn Rand died, twenty-one years ago. I was presenting Morning Report on New Zealand's National Radio that day, and it fell to me to read the announcement of her death. As a recent, awe-struck young convert to her ideas, I found it difficult to report to the nation that her valiant heart had stopped beating.

Nanny State Is Uncool!!

I just saw Mark Peck, ex-MP and spokesman for the Smokefree Coalition, say on the Sainsbury programme (for non-Kiwi SOLOists, that's the current affairs programme that follows our leading TV news bulletin) the reason he doesn’t expect his push for a tobacco tax hike to be successful is the “Nanny State” argument, which he said is “huge” and was the cause of Finance Minister Michael Cullen calling the proposal “political suicide.”

Free Speech's Fits and Starts

[Reprised for obvious reasons—Linz]

"Freedom is the fundamental requirement of man's mind. ... A gun is not an argument."—Ayn Rand

Walking home from the gym the day of the first anniversary of the beginning of the liberation of Iraq, I encountered several hundred smelly Saddamites marching towards Parliament to demand the reinstatement of their toppled idol (I exaggerate the letter, but not the spirit of their protest).

Bush's Address to the Nation

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2007-01-12 02:03

A good poke in the eye to Saddamites and Hsiekovians. One hopes there will be follow-through on the promise to "address" Iran and Syria. Most worrying to me was that in spite of laying out coherently the consequences of failure, Bush's demeanour suggested his heart wasn't in it. I suspect the Dem-scum and their revolting fellow-travellers have succeeded in breaking his spirit.—Linz
