Update on the United Police States

mvardoulis's picture
Submitted by mvardoulis on Sun, 2015-08-16 06:11

Hello SOLO, its been awhile (yet again). I wish I could say things here in The United Police States haven't gone as poorly as I expected for liberty since the last time I waxed prophetic on the subject some six years ago, but alas, my dire predictions have largely come to pass. Everything which has happened here in the once-land-of-the-free has lived down to my expectations, and my observations of the overarching, net effect trend over all that has happened in the United Police States since I have been of voting age confirm the dramatic decline of individual liberty.

Music of the Gods: "The One Tenor" by Lindsay Perigo

An Opera Singer For All Ears

By Number Six

This review is from - The One Tenor (Kindle Edition)

I need to state from the beginning, my understanding, affinity for, and therefore genuine appreciation of opera is very limited. I am a part of the vast majority of music listeners who are best described as an admittedly unsophisticated follower of “popular” music.

I almost forgot, it's been so long since Mr. McGoohan 'resigned' from the burdens of this world. Happy 85th birthday, Patrick!

"Governor Deval Patrick's moves to ban on-line gambling buried deep in the very same bill that would allow three casinos to be licensed in the state of Massachusetts smack of fascism and cronyism," says SOLO-US spokesman Michael Vardoulis.

I am truly amazed and impressed with SOLO and especially the “virtual Galt’s Gulch” online SOLOpassion community. There is nothing like this anywhere else: a site where Objectivists and near-Objectivists can debate freely (even with the HOST no less, as I have, without being ‘thrown off’) as well as exchange knowledge and resources to the betterment of those who love liberty and reason everywhere!
