Regarding The Post Below...

-After I recieved flak from the post itself along with four commentators at, I tried to defend my case by posting a comment. Normally this would be fine, except whoever operates the website obviously regulates what is allowed to be said, which explains why there is no defense of my statement. I also noticed, by sheer coincidence, that the same video is now at NoodleFood, here.

The False Depiction Of Objectivism

-I've never been a fan of Jon Stewart and now I am no fan of Steven Colbert because of this*.

-It seems like every time objectivism becomes displayed to the masses (another good example would be episode 61 of The Simpsons) it is mindlessly ridiculed, always without substance.

Jonathan Swift: "When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him."

*I couldn't directly load it from youtube because the owners, Viacom, took it off due to copyright laws.

The BBC Is A Joke

-Let's take a look at what Martin Bell of the BBC has to say about news-reporting:
"Let me dispose of the objectivity myth right now," said the BBC's Bell. "There cannot be such a thing - all journalists are human beings, what you report comes through the filter of your senses and your memory and your experiences."[Source:]

-This translates simply into newsworthy events being dictated not by an objective reality, but rather by how someone feels about it. Objectivity cannot exist, according to Bell, because each person feels different about a specific occurence which in turn influences them in different, subjective ways. He makes this clear when he says "...what you report comes through the filter of your senses and your memory and your experiences." Reality is not objective; rather it is controlled by the way each individual feels about it. If one were to accept Bell's belief, it is also to be said that every journalist is bound by some cosmic force that is out of their ability to control; the mystic assertion that the journalists' do not have the ability to stop, halt or pause the "filter" of their senses to determine the objectivity of a certain event.

-The bottom-line: Events either happened or they didn't. There is no middle-man. It is the media's job to report what literally happened. The truth will find its way to the surface.

-The BBC is trying to make excuses for being slanted, since no one - according to Martin Bell - can be objective.

-It is safe to say that Martin Bell thinks that "There can be no such thing as objectivity"; wouldn't you agree? The statement itself seems pretty objective.

It Looks Like Christmas Is Coming Early!

-This is a gift for anyone who wishes to expose Noam Chomsky for the piece of shit that he undoubtedly is. I would also like to note that this post was inspired entirely by a critic in my comment section two posts down. This link catches Noam on every back-sliding, context-dropping, communist-endorsing statement that he's ever been a part of. As you can imagine, there are quite a few.

An Upcoming Islamic Conference

-I guess living in Tampa does have its perks (sometimes):
The Secular Islam Summit will be held in St. Petersburg, Fla., on March 4-5. Speakers include notable experts Ibn Warraq, Walid Phares, Amir Taheri, Nonie Darwish, and Irshad Manji, among many others.[Source:]

-I will be there as well and as a bonus it's open to the public! For more information, check out the brochure here.
