HA HA HA! Ayn Rand took Social Security and Medicare!

That's fricking classing. Ayn Rand Mrs-Government-Interference-Is-Always-Evil, took Social Security and Medicare while dying of lung cancer. She was of course a lifetime smoker because smoking symbolized man's conquest over fire, and questioned how she could get cancer because she had no false premises!

http://www.boingboing.net/2011/01/28/ayn-rand-took-govern.html

An interview with Evva Pryror, a social worker and consultant to Miss Rand's law firm of Ernst, Cane, Gitlin and Winick verified that on Miss Rand's behalf she secured Rand's Social Security and Medicare payments which Ayn received under the name of Ann O'Connor (husband Frank O'Connor).

As Pryor said, "Doctors cost a lot more money than books earn and she could be totally wiped out" without the aid of these two government programs. Ayn took the bail out even though Ayn "despised government interference and felt that people should and could live independently... She didn't feel that an individual should take help."

 This is the darling of the right, of the tea party? She died pennyless and alone. Apparently because she was like a Uber-Man builder and creator whom the government attempts to tax to death. Because, government interference is the only reason why you aren't rich/richer right now. It's like Social Darwinism for the mentally ill telling people that they are better off because they are better off. I've met Rand whores in the past, and while some were eagarly trying to make perpetual motion machines in their garages or accepting Federal Reserve conspiracy theories and fiat currency doubters, they are almost always rather off... but never so off as Rand herself, that poor socialist evil woman who stole money from others at gun point to make up for her own inabilities (Rand philosophy as to what social programs involve).

Ssnot, interesting info about A.Rand, thanks!

Quite a hypocrite, eh?--as we say in Canada, the land with four parties in power: Conservatives, Liberals, the New Democrat Party (NDP)--often called Liberals in a hurry, and Bloc Quebecoise http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloc_Qu%C3%A9b%C3%A9cois#Present_situationLe Bloque.

So Ssnot, what about the USA? Where, BTW, most of my cousins live.

Are you stuck with the two-party system? And are most people happy about it? Must the choice always be between the Republicans--the right-wing and/or the tea-party types-- and the Democrats--the left-wing, socialist and liberal-party types.

Me? Yes, I live in Ontario. We have a three-party system--Conservatives, Liberals and Socialist NDP. and I have had fun running for all levels of government. No luck, yet. The masses are asses, so it is said.

BTW, If I had the money--including the kind you can read about at www.torontodollar.com and at www.ppsn.on.ca I would organize and fund a federal party to attract truly independent people--people willing to see that we elect the kind of leader (head) and leaders we need. I mean people capable of seeing that having wings out of balance is no way to have a balanced political economy capable of producing the things that we all need and for which we can afford to pay.

May I suggest that a good name for the party I have in mind would be the TAIL-FEATHERS PARTY.

FEATHERS AND THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT
Without feathers what use would wings be? Without them how long would birds that depend on flight survive? Without them how would birds keep warm?

As a group, the tail feathers are probably as important as the wings. Without them, birds would not be able to take off. In flight, tail feathers are what keep the body of the bird in a balanced state and moving in the right direction. Sounds like the role played by good governments.

Interestingly, the tail feathers are situated right over the bird's anus. What a humble and yet a very important position. Here they have a clear view of what comes out of the anus. Government leaders, think about this.

What comes out ought to be good S.H.I.T.--socially healthy & indispensable treasure of great value. It is of great value to the land, the water and all creatures great and small, including us, who live on, or in it.

Again I remind governments: What comes out of the anus is the processed results of what the head, the leadership, takes in at the front end.

Flocks of birds (the people governed) that do not have and consume good foods, and other products they need, will not stay healthy for long. Neither will the land, the water and the air.

Sick birds make for sick flocks. This will become evident when what is consumed contaminates what ought to be good S.H.I.T.
Not good news for the whole flock, including government leaders.

THE ROLE OF GOOD GOVERNMENT?

We elect governments to keep an eye on the flock and the political economy. The best way to help us to be better, more productive and healthy citizens is to keep an eye on the kind of crap that we excrete. Healthy flocks, led by healthy leaders and producing good S.H.I.T. is the goal.
