"As a child, I saw a glimpse of the pre-World War 1 world, the last afterglow of the most radiant cultural atmosphere in human history ... The existential atmosphere (which was then being destroyed by Europe's philosophical trends and political systems) still held a benevolence that would be incredible to the men of today, i.e., a smiling, confident good will of man to man and man to life." (Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto).

Annals of Airheadery (aka Chronicles of Cretinism)

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2012-12-28 21:51

I am going to keep this thread permanently blue-stickied, like Marcus's Global Warming thread, Philip Duck's UN thread, etc. It will serve as a repository for exhibits in my case that America has now become Airhead America indisputably—comprachicoed, cretinized, lobotomized, infantilized, collectivized, Slayerized, zombified, pomofied, Gramscified, Alinskyfied and generally filthified beyond recognition (from the Founding Fathers' Republic) and beyond salvation. It is not a cliff that America hovers atop; it is the abyss.

This sub-filth, lower even than Slayer, has just performed for, and been embraced by, The Filth. There are those who, fresh from predicting The Filth's defeat in the recent election, dispute my depiction of contemporary America as "Airhead America" and a global cataclysm as imminent. I hereby rest my case (note: this excrement has received over 900 million hits):

Something Salutary for Saddamite Scum

In my personal topography of hell, among the lowest rungs is that reserved for the armchair quarterbackers such as Ronroids (and, of course, overtly leftist low-lifes) who diss the toppling of Saddam, in a flagrant flouting of the principle that a free or semi-free country has the right, albeit not the duty, to liberate a slave pen.

Producer John Aglialoro and Atlas Society founder David Kelley discuss the election ...

Aglialoro: It's no surprise that, after 55 years since Atlas Shrugged was published, Ayn Rand is still being attacked with total disdain by the socialist left.

Kelley: John, we knew up front that the movie reviewers, who overwhelmingly subscribe to the socialist left ideology, would trash Atlas Shrugged Part 2, despite the obvious improvements in cinematic quality.

The Quintessence of Airhead America

The Tyranny of the Tawdry via the Despotism of the Demagogue will take hold long before Peikoff's Goblian theocracy does:

Dramatic Collapse of US Freedom Ranking Under Obamarx

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2012-09-20 05:11

Folk here know I set little store by the indices for economic freedom touted by various think tanks, some of which have ludicrously awarded PLAB*-NZ gold medals in the past, but I've no doubt there are sound empirical reasons for the drop in America's place from 10th in 2011 (measuring data up to 2009) to 18th this year (up to 2010) in the Cato/Fraser rankings:

http://www.cato.org/pubs/efw/

The reasons can no doubt be distilled into one term: "Obamarx," subsuming the avalanche of regulations, the mountains of debt, the war on coal and oil, the cronyism, the de facto nationalizations (including medicine), the rampaging Nanny Statism perpetrated by The Filth as part of his agenda to "fundamentally transform" America. PLAB-NZ is ranked third.

Recently, Sean Hannity interviewed mega-slimeball Alan Colmes about the Islamaelstrom currently engulfing the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Asia. Sean was trumpeting his own prescience in predicting the course Egypt would take under the Muslim Brotherhood. Colmes triumphantly rejoindered: "You wanted democracy! And the Muslim Brotherhood was democratically elected!" Hannity had no response except a lame, "I don't know why I like you." (I don't know why he does either.) This exchange pointed up yet again the mortal damage one does to liberty by equating it with democracy. Mindful of this, I am here reprising my Stratos TV "peritorial" on the subject:
