Re: The (new, straight-from-scratch) Trump thread

Anyone care to place a bet that the High Oompa Loompa will either invade a Middle Eastern country, or a major terrorist attack will occur on U.S. soil, within the next six months?

Re: Criticism of Libertarianism

I tried to post this before but the site rejected it: the pdf of "meet Charles Koch's Brain" , the story of Robert LeFevre, the former "I AM" cultist, Depression-era flim-flam man, leader of a sex cult, Red-baiter, FBI stooge, friend of Willis Carto, and repeated failed businessm...

Re: Criticism of Libertarianism

Lol so much for that thread....I wouldn't say libertarian ideas don't "spread everywhere" so much as they are taken up mostly by a specific cohort of angry men. Usually anti-feminists (hell yeah many of them are guys who can't get laid of course, loool). That's part of what makes Ayn Rand...
