Democrats beware: It is being claimed that sales of Atlas Shrugged have soared since the recent election. Maybe this will the long-rumored movie version off the ground.

Well nice to see others bring this up!

The movie news is from 2006 so I am not holding my breath. And having Kelley help with it is tantamount to ruining the film IMO.

The events in Atlas are shocking when you watch the news and it is really happening as we speak. Executive orders, limitations on ownership etc. all leading to fascism.

OTOH, Jolie as Dagney would be perfect. Too bad Gary Cooper is no longer available to play Hank Riorden. He was tremendous as Roark in

It is very simple: Barrack Obama is Bush44

You look at his appointments -- the latest candidate put forth by Obama is Chas Freeman for Chairman of the National Intelligence Council. In 2006, in full possession of all the horror, with more than enough time to consider what he is saying, Freeman states that the Chinese were overcautious in their response to the student demonstrators in Tiananmen Square in 1989. 3000 peaceful demonstrators slaughtered, and this guy says not just that it was right, but that the perpetrators of this action were "overly cautious."


Obama is unwilling to punish those who killed or tortured. And despite saying he won't torture, he maintains that we must keep the tool of rendition. Why? More torture is the only possible answer. Obama continues to support the use of the States Secret Privilege to suppress the rights of innocents rendered to foreign countries. No compensation for having their genitals mutilated because it might embarrass those in the Bush administration who ordered these horrors. Of course the rest of the world knows the story, so they are ignoring the brontosaurus in the shower stall. It helps keeps the stories out of the US media.

And so much more in the way of cover up of the abuses of Bush, and extension of the power of the government to destroy and wreck the lives of individuals at will, and to cover up their stupidity and mistakes. Yes, he should be called Bush44.
