Welcome to the Roaring 20’s


Happy New Year!

It does not matter that only a few in each generation will grasp and achieve the full reality of man’s proper stature — and that the rest will betray it. It is those few that move the world and give life its meaning— and it is those few that I have sort to address. The rest are no concern of mine; it is not me or The Fountainhead that they will betray: it is their own souls.
—— Ayn Rand New York, May 1978

Here’s wishing you much success in the coming year…

May you achieve all you desire.

Words on Wednesday


“After my initial feeling of being violated, seeing that pompous fool using my creation to stroke his infantile ego, it finally struck me that the leader of my country and the free world actually enjoys comparing himself to a mass murderer. How sick is that? These are sad and strange times we are going through. Fortunately all things, even national nightmares, eventually come to an end.”

Jimmy Starlin

Forty Percent on Kool-aid


Did you notice, we have 40% on kool-aid.

They either retire, or in denial.

It seems these 40% have decided to give up the constitution, patriotism, and humanity.

I often wonder, why someone would place their trust on a draft dodger, sleezbag, bully and narcissist. And so much more.

Character defines human society.

Do you want:

Luke SkyWalker or Darth Vader?

Avengers or Thanos?

Spider-Man or Green Goblin?

Character or Iniquity?

Take your pick.
