Social Unsecurity

A flash movie on the DNC website shows Bush pushing a senior off a cliff –the consequence of privatizing social security. Apparently, letting people decide what to do with their own money is the same thing as murder to liberals.

I would remind the sane reader that social security is in fact much more insecure that any stock market — after all, if you had invested in the stock market five years ago, you would have made the horrible loss of 0% interest, whereas social security payments are not only guaranteed to pay 0% interest, but are inflexible, unfair, untransferable (at death), and likely to break down, as the Ponzi scheme of the millenia unravels and millions loose as the so-called “lock-box” turns out to be empty.
Not to mention that social security is welfare socialism at its finest.

More Censorship

In yet another example of censorship by so-called liberals, an order of ARI fliers titled In Moral Defense of Israel sent to the University of Toronto Objectivist Club for a speech have been denied by the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency, which claimed “The following goods [the pamphlets] have been detained for a determination of tariff classification as they may constitute obscenity or hate propaganda.”
