A defendant's testimony and summation.
[T]he mind is an attribute of the individual. There is no such thing as a collective brain. There is no such thing as a collective thought. An agreement reached by a group of men is only a compromise or an average drawn upon many individual thoughts. It is a secondary consequence. The primary act — the process of reason — must be performed by each man alone. We can divide a meal among many men. We cannot digest it in a collective stomach. No man can use his lungs to breathe for another man. No man can use his brain to think for another. All the functions of body and spirit are private. They cannot be shared or transferred.
We inherit the products of the thought of other men. We inherit the wheel. We make a cart. The cart becomes an automobile. The automobile becomes an airplane. But all through the process what we receive from others is only the end product of their thinking. The moving force is the creative faculty which takes this product as material, uses it and originates the next step. This creative faculty cannot be given or received, shared or borrowed. It belongs to single, individual men. That which it creates is the property of the creator. Men learn from one another. But all learning is only the exchange of material. No man can give another the capacity to think. Yet that capacity is our only means of survival.
Nothing is given to man on earth. Everything he needs has to be produced. And here man faces his basic alternative: he can survive in only one of two ways — by the independent work of his own mind or as a parasite fed by the minds of others.
–Howard Roark's courtroom speech,
from The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
didn't build that — somebody else made that happen" is the honest confession of a parasite. By definition, he is not a thinker. Parasites only desire what somebody else promises them, whether it be a food coupon, public housing, "affordable" health care, or even a "fundamentally transformed" nation.
Thus, when asked who cares about them more, parasites would naturally pick a tyrant over a freedom lover. They are programmed to literally salivate when the tyrant tells them, no, you can't build that or make that happen yourself, and mortally fearful of the freedom lover who demands, for their own and all our sakes, that you do. But how else may a tyrant convince the parasites that they all need him? that without him all of them are helpless? and that "we're all in this (collective) together"?
But all we know on earth — all we need to know — is that collectivism is tyranny, tyranny collectivism. Collectivism is nothing except extreme conformity. Nor can anybody make it happen except by extreme force.
The creator faces nature alone. The parasite faces nature through an intermediary.
The creator's concern is the conquest of nature. The parasite's concern is the conquest of men.
The creator lives for his work. He needs no other men. His primary goal is within himself. The parasite lives second-hand. He needs others. Others become his prime motive.
The basic need of the creator is independence. The reasoning mind cannot work under any form of compulsion. It cannot be curbed, sacrificed or subordinated to any consideration whatsoever. It demands total independence in function and in motive. To a creator, all relations with men are secondary.
The basic need of the second-hander is to secure his ties with men in order to be fed. He places relations first. He declares that man exists in order to serve others.
Ayn Rand's jury, therefore, finds the defendant not guilty. Failure to be a slave of
"somebody else" some collective is not a crime. Subservience to it has never supplanted, nor ever will supplant everybody's Creator by Whom all are endowed with the certain unalienable right to exist. Personal freedom, not collective servitude, is our and our society's greatest strength.
Parasite-n-thief Øbuiltnothing, on the other hand, appoints himself the sole judge, jury, and executioner of all such defendants.

Obama did build that. He made that happen.
he only reason we're all in this Øbungler Depression together is there's this Worst. pResident. Ever. in our lives. He, more than anybody else, "helped" to create this unbelievably long period of high unemployment that we have that forced and still is forcing Americans to suffer. He spent like the drunken Demøcrook that he is, wasting trillions of our dollars on reckless boondoggles.
Let him be absolutely clear: "Shovel-ready was not as... uh... shovel-ready as we expected."
He tried his extremist plan, and it failed everybody — miserably.
Everybody, that is, except greedy, selfish Big Green bandits and corrupt Big Union vultures — a.k.a. his campaign donors.
While "good" at starting fires and burning everything down to the ground, Baracklutz Harebrain Øblewit and his whole extremarxist Dumbøcomrade Party freak show couldn't put out a match if every one of them had his/her/other own fire service.
First they "promised" to "cut the deficit in half."
Except BØnehead the Blunderer-n-Thief hasn't — not even close — and instead has racked up more debt than any previous president since the founding of this country. In terms of outstanding debt, he's added more of it than all 43 of them combined. In one year alone he issued as much new debt as all the other governments of the world combined.
That's not what you do when you "want to give something back."
Øbraindead's plan "worked," all right. Worked at putting tons of us out of work.
They also lied about all the jobs they would "create or save."
For 41 straight months, Backward Øharmful the Causer o' Grief created and maintained a jobless rate higher than 8 percent. Nobody else has made that happen since the last Great Depression.
Also, yes Øblockhead did build that average 9 percent unemployment he's inflicted on all of us throughout his soon to be expiring one term. When President Bush had the keys, it averaged 5 percent. Moreover, if you've looked for a job since Øblamesomebodyelse took office, you should always be struck by the fact that he reduced your chance of finding one by two-thirds. His plan worked!
As if that wasn't bad enough, our Jobskiller-in-Chief has made it absolutely clear he hadn't spent even one nanosecond "thinking" about the record number of Americans who've been out of work for more than six months. Or the record number of households that have at least one member looking for a job. Or any of the eight millions workers who dropped out of the labor market and still has no hope of getting a job. Or even the number of part-time workers. Because if he had, he'd have to confess our real unemployment rate is 15 percent.
It's the Øbreakdown of the great American jobs machine. Instead of doing anything yes he can to help rebuild it, he's purposefully done everything yes he could to break it down. And, no, he can't say somebody else made that happen.
So it is all Big Øbamistake's fault that fewer Americans are working today than in the year 2000. Which is quite an "accomplishment" when you consider there were 31 million less Americans back then and 11.4 million less workers in our labor force.
The only real question left is who would want to let Øfelon keep his job when so many of us have lost ours?

Øbamadethathappen, Medicare-Killer-n-Thief, and his Medicare-gutting "outlay savings" (PDF)
ow does Øbamadethathappen
save gut Medicare outlays? Let me clearly count the ways:
He guts them to the depth and breadth and height
His soulless plan can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of justifying means and real disgrace.
He guts them to the level of everyday's
Senior most in need, by point of a gun and taxes not so light.
He guts them freely, as Seniors are deprived every healthcare "right";
He guts them surely, as they're burned by Øbamadethathappen's tax raise.
He guts them with no compassion but to abuse
In his old beefs, and with his Marxist comrades's bad faith:
He guts them with a hate he seems to let loose
On our oldest Seniors, — he guts them with the final breath,
Smiles, tears, of each Senior's life! — and, if government choose,
He shall but gut them better after setting up
Payment Advisory Boards Panels of Death.
Altogether, ObamaCare cuts $818 billion from Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) from 2014-2023, the first 10 years of its full implementation, and $3.2 trillion over the first 20 years, 2014-2033. Adding in ObamaCare cuts for Medicare Part B (physicians fees and other services) brings the total cut to $1.05 trillion over the first 10 years and $4.95 trillion over the first 20 years.
These draconian cuts in Medicare payments to doctors, hospitals and other health-care providers that serve America's seniors were the basis for the Congressional Budget Office's official "score" — repeatedly cited by the president — that the health-reform legislation would actually reduce the federal deficit. But Mr. Obama never disclosed how that deficit reduction would actually be achieved.
There will be additional cuts under ObamaCare to Medicare Advantage, the private option to Medicare that close to one-fourth of all seniors have chosen for their coverage under the program because it gives them a better deal. Mr. Foster [Medicare's chief actuary] estimates that 50% of all seniors with Medicare Advantage will lose their plan because of these cuts. Mr. Obama's pledge that "If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep it" clearly does not apply to America's seniors.
Moreover, there will be additional cuts to Medicare adopted by bureaucrats at the Medicare Independent Payment Advisory Board. ObamaCare empowers this board to close Medicare financing gaps by adopting further Medicare cuts that would become effective without any congressional action. Mr. Foster reports that "The Secretary of HHS is required to implement the Board's recommendations unless the statutory process is overridden by new legislation."
The drastic reductions in Medicare reimbursements under ObamaCare will create havoc and chaos in health care for seniors. Many doctors, surgeons and specialists providing critical care to the elderly — such as surgery for hip and knee replacements, sophisticated diagnostics through MRIs and CT scans, and even treatment for cancer and heart disease — will cease serving Medicare patients. If the government is not going to pay, then seniors are not going to get the health services, treatment and care they expect.
Mr. Foster reports that two-thirds of hospitals already lose money on Medicare patients. Under ObamaCare it will get much worse. Hospitals also will shut down or stop serving Medicare patients.

Democrats are extremely bad for your economic health.
oday, a quarter of all prime working-age Americans have been pushed out of the workforce.
They didn't do that.
Somebody else made that happen. Namely, Democommierats.
Jimmy Carter and ØJimmah the Second Coming of Carter™ each had a Democommierat-controlled Congress before and during his one term. The result: 25% of Americans between the ages of 25 and 54 kept or driven out of the job market.
Following Jimmah I's reign of error, Ronald Reagan and his Republican controlled Senate were well on their way to creating an over 80% participation rate for such Americans. Until Democommierats took over the Senate and made the rate drop.
BiIsIs al-Qlinton couldn't get it up above 80%, either. But, fortunately, Newt Gingrich and his fellow Republicans gained control of both the House and Senate. Then the participation rate was on the rise again.
The only reason it stopped rising was Demøcommierats retook control of the Senate.
Thankfully, President Bush and his Republican controlled Congresses made the rate rise for a third time, all the way back up to 80%.
Then crazed job-killing Demøcomierats(birm), led by Ninny Pelousy and Harry Reidtard, retook control of both houses of Congress and immediately made the participation rate plummet. They had help along the way, too: Their Job Killer-in-Chief, Jimmah ver. Ø2, doubled that dismal drop.
There Demøcommierats stubbornly kept it at its three-decade low for two extremely miserable years. The only reason that rate has seen any real uptick is Republicans regained control of the House.
Make no mistake: the more Demøcommierats control America's government the worse off all Americans are. Especially working-age Americans.
