SOLO-International Op-Ed: Dollars for Despots

Philip Duck
January 20, 2010

Yet another hopeless talkfest kicks off today as officials from the morally bankrupt United Nations meet the wholly corrupt ministers and bureaucrats of 15 Asian and Pacific Island states tagged, ‘Least-developed countries.’ (LDCs)

Intro to 'Total Passion'

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2014-06-14 23:05

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):

SOLO Quote of the Day

administrator's picture
Submitted by administrator on Wed, 2017-08-16 05:30

"You know whom they are not initiating violence against? Yaron Brook. Onkar Ghate. Elan Journo. Harry Binswanger. Anyone associated with the Ayn Rand Institute. And you know why they don't protest Brook when he speaks on campus? Because he says absolutely nothing controversial with respect to the culture wars. He's right there smack dab in the middle of what Tom Woods calls the 'three-by-five card of allowable opinion' when it comes to any issue important to the Cultural Marxists.

"Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

And everyone who voted for them, including treasonous anti-Trump Obleftivists on the Left Coast. They will, no doubt, object to Trump's "fire and fury" talk. May fire and fury rain down on their fetid for-sale-to-Soros anuses:

When I consider that all world leaders in their different eras get handed complex problems not of their own creation - Lincoln and the scourge of black slavery, say, or Churchill with the outbreak of the Second World War - I’m tempted to shrug and just conclude that it comes with the job. But then I remember that these great leaders of the past never had to confront a foe where a nuclear attack on themselves or a close ally may be the result of their actions.

Fiat has just launched the following ad all over the world, celebrating 60 years of Fiat 500.

In his Milan apartment, sometime in the fifties, a suave Italian gentleman is listening to Mario Lanza singing the title song of his latest movie, For the First Time. As he opens up Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream and begins to read, our gentleman seems to fall asleep. He is then seen to step out of his unit ... into the present day. He bumps into a beautiful woman. And Mario. "For the first time I'm in love." What on earth could happen next?! Will whatever happens stand the test of time?! Is it all just a dream?

CNN Filth inadvertently exposed by one of their own employees. The most salutary moment is when any notion of "ethics" in journalism is derided as "adorable." Pretty much where we're at in life generally, in this grotesque anti-culture of moronnials, pomowankers and fry-quackers, aided and abetted by, of all entities, the Ayn Rand Institute. In any event, even in such a depraved world, this must surely spell the end of the Russia bullshit, as well as the careers of such Filth as Zucker, Cooper, Lemon, Tapper, Stelter et al ... mustn't it?
