  1. OT: From http://www.dailytrojan.com/media/storage/paper679/news/2006/10/31/News/Activists.Lob.Meat.Condoms-2411743.shtml?norewrite200611060842&sourcedomain=www.dailytrojan.com

    A battle of political extremists ended in the throwing of meat and condoms Friday as about a dozen protesters from the LaRouche Youth Movement interrupted a lecture by an Ayn Rand Institute speaker.

    Department of Public Safety officers asked the protesters to leave after they threw meat and condoms and interrupted the speaker by singing politically charged songs. The protest was one of several the LYM has organized against ARI events.

  2. What the flying fuck is Nick Gruens argument again?

    Can someone go to bat for him. Because I don’t make it that he’s even gotten so far with it that we could identify where he’s come off the beam?

    Whats his fucking problem with lifting the tax-free-threshold and throwing all these blood-suckers off the public artery?

    I suspect that the confirmed thief thinks its a choice between lesser evils because he reckons actually cutting government spending is just out of the question?

    But then I can’t fucking make out what he’s on about.

    Could somebody help me out here?

  3. I have been looking for some reasoning why the tax-free threshhold should be set so low that it takes money from welfare recipients, haven’t found it yet.

  4. Nick Gruen says we’ve got the worlds best welfare system. I wish he’d tell that to the ALP. He should also then explore the iinter-relatedness of ‘world’s best’ targeted welfare and high so-called EMTRs.

  5. I think he bamboozled himself since he just cannot stand the idea of slashing spending.

    Its just so sacriligious to imagine reducing the level of thieving that he just cannot abide by it. So I’m supposing that he is turning himself inside out in a desperate attempt to square that circle.

  8. I can’t think of anything more tragic then a LaRouche Youth Movement. Kind of like a bowel movement really…
