    Telling people you are a Scientologist. :eek:

    Or is IT?

    What do you think of people who speak Ayn Rand and her ideas in a positive light?

    *thh


    I'm in trouble now. I went down to hollywood and there were the uniformed ones...teh true cultists. Scary. My balls shrivelled up at the site of them. For the first time in my life I knew what it was like to feel as fearful as a samuraijack exposed.

    It's more like saying you're homosexual in public, actually. But if you use the right words, you can sniff out others who share your sentiments.

    In fact, it is very similar to announcing your opposition to Obama anywhere in New York.

    Tell me about it...

    ...and one of my Navy friends loves to hit up Starbucks with me on Sunday afternoon and loudly discuss politics. It never fails, the entire place ends up glaring at us, and I eventually convince him to leave. If someone asks him why he is so loud, he replies "I have an M-16 and I know how to use it. First Amendment, fuck off!"

    I'm not in the Navy, so I can't be so bold...I don't feel like losing my job!

    I personally dont see anything wrong with it. When you say something like that, it attacks other people's belief systems by saying to them that there is something out there other than what they believe. This in turn puts them on the defensive because its something they dont know about...it hurts their egos. Humans are egotists. It will forever be this way...and when something unknown pops up, it just scares people. Too bad for them, I say. If they dont like it.. then they can wear earplugs in their ears for the rest of their lives. I live in the US where freedom is scarce these days.. but it is my entitlement.

    I'm not a big fan of Ayn Rand, but why should it matter if somebody likes her ideas?
