Yep, yep, yep- those Commie bastards in NYC finally decided to ban trans fats "for our own good", and are now pushing for a nationwide ban.
To quote Tommy Lee Jones as Two Face from Batman Forever, in regards to the Baby Boomer generation: "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST DIE!!!!!!!!"

I was just reading this article link to sourceand was reminded of precious words from Ayn Rand, in Atlas Shrugged.
In short, a 15 year killed a motorist here in NZ, by throwing a 8kg (um roughly 17lb?) block of concrete, from an over bridge onto the free way, killing a motorist.

It is illegal in NZ to smoke inside any public building and in some cases, outside as well. At Auckland International Airport, there used to be designated smoking area's, which have been removed because of the governments anti-smoking campaign.

Whilst listening to Lindsay this morning on Radio Pacific, some callers referred to the Auckland City Council as funding seances.
“A spiritual medium group was allocated a $2500 council grant to seek NZQA accreditation for their seance courses, and another $2000 was given to help fund two tarot card reading events.”

Perusing the NZ Herald the other day I saw the picture of the lovely looking lass who heads up this article.
Reading the article just about caused me to start banging my head against the wall. It's about the shortage of good 20-30 year-old men in the country and thus there is an excess of single women, the beauty in the headline is a victim of this terrible calamity. Or is she?
Thanks for the clarification, Luke. — by Ross Elliot on Sun, 2006-12-03 21:57

Whether or not both of them will I can't guarantee. What you should know about them is that they're both Statists- one is a self-proclaimed Liberal Democrat( I think I've mentioned that before. The other is economically "Liberal" and Socially "Conservative"- he's definitely an Altruist, but I believe he's more misinformed than anything else. He's also a great debater, and I think you'll likely consider yourselves somewhat honored to "give him a run for his money".
Republicans and Democrats being in Synch with each other has never been so clear and creepy before...

First off, I had a nice solid debate/discussion with my friend( he's in the post-modernist belief field, however he's one of the more calm, civil ones- a true rarity), using against him the very arguments that he used on ME. Folks I assure you- it was like the Carter Vs Reagan debates. I pretty much cleaned his clock. He still stands by his beliefs, but he could barely defend them( he defended them as well as George W. Bush defends Capitalism).

C. Utility of Rights
Russell Hardin (1986) sees rights as strategic protections of people against people. Rights shepherd the interests of individuals not by directly securing outcomes, but by securing or denying individuals certain choices or actions.

Diana Hsieh and likely others, have said that imminence of theocracy is not a part of what Linz has dubbed "the Hsiehkovian’s" argument. But if there is no practical or measurable threat, and Republicans are still ominously “the party of religion,” as Peikoff says, how else is this large claim any different than any other unfalsifiable claim?

B. Moral Aspect of Rights
David Hume surmised that the moral quality we attach to principles of justice is due to a generalization of the sympathy we feel for victims of injustice. We sympathize, to limited degree, with the interests of the general public. Because justice secures the public interest, we count principles of justice as moral principles.

After watching Ayn Rand's Donahue interview, Right Thinking Girl asks whether beauty is a virtue:
"Still, after watching the videos of Rand, I took a bath and while looking at the shape of my calves, a question formed: is beauty a virtue? An hour later, I was googling like mad, trying to find out if Ayn Rand ever said anything about physical beauty and what emphasis she put on it."
