Also, you claim that I "worship" Rand because I picked a dollar bill as my symbol of the US when I was in elementary school (honest, I hadn't read Rand in the third grade). I chose the dollar because even then I knew that a nation's currency contained its symbolic representation of itself, and what it puts on its money tells a lot about how how sees itself. Most of my teacher's objections to the project were based on her attempt to pigeonhole me as a hyphenated-American, which was another reason why the project was apropos, the national motto of "E Pluribus, Unum" making my case for me (yes, I know that it doesn't appear on the dollar, but I also had a section on the quarter, the dime, the nickel and the penny; I earned that A+). I find it interesting that you see any respect for the symbolism of our national currency as a radical position, but the dollar is covered with the symbols of our nation, from the Great Seal to our first president. Isn't that worthy of respect?
Yes, Frank is gay. We all know it, because it's pretty much the be-all and end-all of his political stance. However, note that you didn't address his conduct, but went on the attack against those who raised this peripheral issue. Your rant against Rand is also part of your attempt to change the subject. Sorry, but no. Barney Frank is a hypocritical tightwad who spends other people's money promiscously, but refuses to part with a dollar of his own money. As I said before, the only screwing of his that concerns me is what he has done to millions of taxpayers.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

The defenses of Conservatives are not reflexive regarding individual politicians when they are deserving of negative scrutiny, unlike liberl's thoughtless and completely political defense of scum like Barney.
Liberal weenies like you have a reflexive defense for the indefensible and reprehensible actions of all liberals.
Look in a mirror for a change.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
