The rightwingers really love the hell out of….cough..so-called philosopher, but really just a fucking novelist with only two big sellers, Ayn Rand. Personally, I think the broad was nothing more than a rich, uppity cunt that thought the majority of the world was there to make her and her buddies in the Corporatocracy more money.
The idiot that started our financial slide into hell, Alan Greenspan, was a friend and follower of Rands btw. She later cast him aside after he went to work for the gasp…government. Matt Taibbi says it best for me in the latest Alternet Q&A with him regarding his new book:
She was this great novelist who wrote all these very ponderous long novels like The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. The general theme of all of them was that there were two classes of people: the producers and the parasites. In her books, the producers were the great industrial figures who actually created businesses and commercial empires, and everybody was somehow feeding off of them. You were either making something, or you were a parasite. That ethos is still very much alive; it’s part of the Tea Party rhetoric. They talk about “water carriers and water drinkers” and split the world up into those two categories. Greenspan actually spent a lot of time with Rand, they had these little tea parties at her house, and he was under her tutelage. He was one of her protégés who directly carried the flame for her religion. But it was ironic that he ended up being the chief regulator of the economy that had been an anathema to everything that she believed, being a government regulator. Yet he somehow did it and didn’t feel contradicted about it.
The religion of Ayn Rand…how telling is that? Talk about class warfare, that nasty cunt believed in two classes, the have’s and have not’s who’s only goal in life should be to service the rich…or as she thought of them…the producers. I got a good view of how popular this cunt has become by reading this article entitled: 10 Shameless Right-Wing Tributes to Ayn Rand That Should Make Any Sane Person Blush.The article points out that since it seems the religious wingers are taking a backseat to the teabaggers now, Rand has been elevated to the pinnacle of Nutterville, thanks to the likes of Glen Beck and other alum’s of Nutter U. The article identifies Rand’s followers as Randroids…I love it! Here is an interesting passage:
An excellent example is this March 2010 nugget from the Christian Science Monitor: “Apple vs. GM: Ayn Rand knew the difference. Do you?“
You may wonder what “Apple vs. GM” means. (God help us, not an iCar!) But Yaron Brook and Don Watkins of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights aren’t talking about anything so dull as a market conflict — they’re talking about a moral struggle between “producers” like Apple — those few, sterling individuals who wrest value from the earth — and “looters” like GM, whom they describe as “pseudobusinessmen” whose “business isn’t business, but political pull.”
You’d think Brook and Watkins could find better examples of looters than GM — Enron, say, or Goldman Sachs, or Jack Abramoff. But Randroids are generally quiet when such people use political pull to amplify profit, even illegally. (In fact, way back in the scandal-ridden days of 2002, USA Today did a story about suits who found themselves harassed by “prosecutors, regulators” and “a Republican president”; these poor, rattled execs read Ayn Rand, USA Today said, to “remind themselves that self-interest is not only the right thing to do from an economic standpoint but is moral, as well.”)
Apple has it’s products manufactured in China. This is interesting to me since Apple computers are the most expensive fuckers on the market. HP also manufactures most of it’s systems overseas as well, but at least I can friggin afford one of those. GM manufactures all but 15% of their vehicles in the US and all Enron ever did was drive the price of electricity through the fucking roof…But back to the Randroids…They have been waiting forever for the movie version of Atlas Shrugged. Well, it went from a major studio $70 million dollar production with Angelina Jolie to an indy version with a paltry budget of $5 million bucks. Again, from the Alternet 10 Shameless tributes writeup:
The $5 million project is now only part one of a proposed Atlas Shrugged trilogy (the three parts to be titled Atlas Shrugs, Atlas Takes a Load Off and Atlas Shows All You Bastards, presumably). Mediaite’s Frances Martel is dazzled: “The progress on the set of Atlas Shrugged,” she gushes, is really “a much more important story to both pop culture and the political world” than, say, the recent Shirley Sherrod scandal, which the damn liberal media chose to follow instead “because race is a sexy thing to cover,” unlike wonkish subjects like Hollywood movies.
I rest my case…the Randroids are such fuckwads, it gives me a migraine just thinking about them and their allegiance to Rand and her self-absorbed bullshit that masquerades as philosophy. Besides, if Limbaugh, Beck and other extreme rightwing nutters quote this woman, it shows you how fucked up she really was.
Kudos to Tengrain for tweeting about it. It’s a teabagger deluxe called SNEETCHES:

More on the never-ending fuckery of our batshit crazy of the week, Christine O’Donnell. From Politico:
But none were more surprised then the staffers who worked for O’Donnell in 2008, when she made the second of two prior unsuccessful bids for the Senate.
The tea party giant-killer who knocked off Rep. Mike Castle Tuesday is barely recognizable to them. They remember a candidate who was less interested in conservative causes than scoring a television deal, one who suggested dodging campaign vendors, believed she could give the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention and fixated on a harebrained idea to distribute tens of thousands of two-ounce suntan lotion packets to voters.
Kristin Murray, who left her position in the state party to serve as one of several campaign managers for O’Donnell during that race, said warning bells went off in June 2008 when the two were discussing cell phone plans.
“She told me that she thought Joe Biden tapped her phone line,” she said.
Alan Moore, who worked on press releases and policy statements for two months during the 2008 bid and now helps run the conservative site Townhall.com, said his conversations with the candidate led him to believe “her priorities were completely out of whack.”
There is much more so check out the writeup. Isn’t it great when the GOP eats their own? And the gist of the article, for me, is that she really wants what Palin got….lucrative tv contracts and money….lots and lots of money.
And his buddy John Bohner as well…wtf is up w/these two fuckwits and their hatred of the 14th Amendment to our Constitution? Ernie is a member of Nutter University, otherwise known as the Heritage Foundation. Watch him spew his fuckery below:
It’s always the undocumented folks fault. Why in the blue hell isn’t it the assholes that hire them who should be tarred and feathered, not to mention brought up on charges. These people would not be coming from 1000’s of miles away if there weren’t any jobs!!! They come up here and work for shit wages that NO american will do for the wages paid.
So, a hearty FUCK You Ernest Istook! You are our Fuckwit of the Week!
At least they did me. Here we go:
Bart Stupak is grinning like a fool over this one, DHHS limits abortion funding for new high-risk insurance pools.
I realize Politico is a rightwing rag for the most part…but this is Fox News-like yellow journalism at it’s best. What the Politico Web site deletes from its articles without telling anyone.
If you have ever lost a loved-one to this shit or suffer from it’s deadly consequences yourself, I am quite sure this article will really jerk your chain. Lobbyists push use of deadly asbestos in developing nations.
If none of those articles get to you…then you must be a rightwing nutter and a Batshit Bachmann/Teabagger supporter.
The first and third ones really, really piss-me-the-fuck-off. That they still manufacture asbestos is criminal to me. That they want to use that friggin shit in countries already suffering is outrageous. They want the poor and high-risk people to pay for their own legal medical procedures is fuckwitted, selfish, innane and disgusting. They preach and preach about forgiveness…but when people make mistakes and try to fix them…wtf assholes? See Alex Trebek and buy a fucking clue you jerkwads.
