    Catholic Bishops are ashamed of Paul Ryan. Like he cares.

    "Let them eat cake".

    Or do they say "rice" now?

    You can make a "BIG" pot.

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    ============

    While Ryan is rejecting the teeparty goddess' "philosophy", the Catholics are rejecting his -

    Like so many pubs these days, Ryan has no soul. All he has is his own wallet.

    Objectivism has always been the right wing radicals response to altruism.

    I was turned onto Rand by the liner notes of Rush 2112 and consumed Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead and Anthem. They were insipational to me.


    ...and then I graduated high school and went to work in the really real world.

    The truth is Rand, like Marx, missed the point. The relationship between worker and owner is, always has been and always will be symbiotic. The prosperity of one cannot be attained without the prosperity of the other.

    First the Catholics were mad at Obama.

    Now the Catholics are mad at Paul Ryan.

    Which one you think the Catholic's will stay mad at until Nov 2012?
