I can’t find the words for all of the outrage. It sits in my head, a sticky ball of glue that makes every thought slow and messy. The more I struggle the more I lose my grip on the things I want to say.
I am muted by the knowledge that to release this mess would only renew the fight and crush me under the weight of those same asinine excuses.
This must stop. Will it ever stop?

Ayn Rand is one of those things that a lot of us, when we were 17 or 18 and feeling misunderstood, we’d pick up. Then, as we get older, we realize that a world in which we’re only thinking about ourselves and not thinking about anybody else, in which we’re considering the entire project of developing ourselves as more important than our relationships to other people and making sure that everybody else has opportunity – that that’s a pretty narrow vision.
President Obama, in an interview with Rolling Stone, when asked about Paul Ryan’s “obsession” with Rand. source (via shortformblog)
This perfectly summarizes my feelings about Ayn Rand and why I feel differently about her work now than I did when I read it.

All I can hear in my head right now is Oprah screaming “YOU get a gay husband, YOU get a gay husband, EVERYBODY GETS A GAY HUSBAAAAAAND!”
I WANT ONE. And a new car too. And then I shall sell that car in order to buy Romney a heart and/or a clue.
Yay gay husband!!!

I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my band Twisted Sister’s song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ in any capacity. There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X.
