The Ayn Rand Institute: Introduction to Objectivism

The typical answer is that we must learn to deny our own interests and happiness in order to serve God or other people — and morality will teach us to do this. Rand’s answer is radically different. The purpose of morality, she argues, is to teach us what is in our self-interest, what produces happiness. “Man has,” she observes, “no automatic code of survival. . . . His senses do not tell him automatically what is good for him or evil, what will benefit his life or endanger it, what goals he should pursue and what means will achieve them, what values his life depends on, what course of action it requires.” This is what the science of ethics studies — and what Objectivism offers.

This Earth Day, Obama renewed his call for “comprehensive energy and climate legislation that will safeguard our planet, spur innovation and allow us to compete and win in the 21st century economy.”

6 Questions for Environmentalists On Earth Day - FoxNews.com

In lockstep with environmentalists, Obama has previously said the ultimate goal of legislation is “a hard cap on all carbon emissions at a level that scientists say is necessary to curb global warming--an 80% reduction by 2050.” But this raises the question: What is going to replace the coal, oil, and natural gas that we use to heat our homes and offices, fuel our cars and airplanes, power up our computers, and light up the night? “Green energy!” The Greens tell us, as they wax poetic about the promise of solar panels, wind turbines, “smart grids,” etc. Fact: there are three proven categories of industrial-scale energy: carbon-based, which produces about 86% of the world’s energy; nuclear, which produces roughly 6%, and hydroelectric, which produces another 6%. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION - We the People. Wisconsin residents finally regain their Second Amendment rights. Posted at 5:00 pm on June 23, 2011 by MadisonConservative This leaves Illinois as the only state without any legal concealed carry legislation, and a few states that need seriously improved laws(New York, New Jersey, California, Hawaii, and a couple of others).

Wisconsin residents finally regain their Second Amendment rights

The GOP-controlled Assembly approved the bill on a bipartisan vote of 68-27. The Senate backed the bill last week on a 25-8 vote, and the measure now goes to Walker, who supports it, for his signature. Wisconsin would become the 49th state to legalize the carrying of concealed guns. The legislation would require those who want to carry concealed firearms to obtain permits. Ultimately, this is a victory with one casualty: Constitutional Carry. Thankfully, it was Madison’s conservative host, Vicki McKenna, that kept the fight going even while Walker and members of the Wisconsin Senate and Assembly began to fold.

Bachmann Blasts Obama In Tea Party Response. NY Democratic Congresswoman admits she hadn’t heard of Fast and Furious. Posted at 5:25 pm on December 7, 2011 by Tina Korbe The Daily Caller’s Michelle Fields captures this damaging moment for the camera.

NY Democratic Congresswoman admits she hadn’t heard of Fast and Furious

At a Tuesday Congressional Hispanic Caucus event, New York Democratic Rep. Nydia Velazquez froze when Fields asked her about Fast and Furious. “Are you not familiar with that story?” Fields then asked. Appalling, right? Anyway, Velazquez isn’t the only member of Congress to be ignorant of the ill-advised Justice Department program that resulted in at least 11 violent crimes in the United States, the deaths of more than 200 Mexicans and the slaying of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Meantime, two other members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus had more to say on the subject, according to a report by Boyle. Illinois Democratic Rep. “I assure you that if I find that he, with knowledge and premeditation and foresight, was totally irresponsible, then he should leave,” Gutierrez said.
