Spam does, indeed, have its own key.
That was awesome!
Now I like Whedon again.
It’s times like this that I find myself in need of a thesaurus. I want to say, “That was great!”, but it’s such a boring response to such a great (see, I told you) clip. Anyway, much enjoyed, thanks.
/ Off to google, “thesaurus”.
You worried me for a minute there.
You’d think that a guy with a fake name would correctly pronounce another person’s fake name.
My reaction on seeing the title : :eek:
My reaction after clicking on the link : :eek:
Geez, my heart was in my throat!
I had the barest glimmer of a moment of panic, but that I realized, c’mon. The man who gave this speech could not, ever, possibly, seriously support Mitt Romney for President.
Anybody checking the thread this morning needs to see this. A good balance to Meat Loaf’s endorsement!
Why the dig against Ayn Rand though? She didn’t have anything against helping people.
Ha! That’s funnier than the video.
I knew it’d get a chuckle out of most people. It is true though, and funny only if you’re ignorant. Which, I thought, was what we were fighting.
Talk about ignorant…are you really so ignorant of political discourse in this country that you don’t know why a dig at Ayn Rand is appropriate in this clip, and that you think your second sentence pertains?
You know how dogs will often cock their heads at an angle when they see something they don’t understand at all? I did exactly that when I read your message.
From the Ayn Rand FAQ: “My views on charity are very simple. I do not consider it a major virtue and, above all, I do not consider it a moral duty. There is nothing wrong in helping other people, if and when they are worthy of the help and you can afford to help them. I regard charity as a marginal issue. What I am fighting is the idea that charity is a moral duty and a primary virtue.”
So, basically, she didn’t have anything against helping other people… she just didn’t think anyone should.
If it’s a moral duty, it’s not charity.
Great speech. Thanks for the link WhyNot.
Whedon should take a lesson in morality from River Tam, who responded to a do-gooding interventionist teacher’s question about how anyone could possibly dislike having ‘enlightenment’ brought to them by a large government:
And he might also listen to Malcolm Reynolds, who was no fan of the “Alliance”. Which, by the way, was not a right-wing fascist state. It was a ‘progressive’ state trying to bring its version of enlightenment to the world, by force if need be.
