How the SR-71 Blackbird's Engines Work

Not impressed yet? What if I tell you this plane was designed in the 1950's?

Such an amazing piece of engineering.

They were originally going to put guns on it, but found that it would fly faster than any bullet, so used it as a reconnaissance plane instead. (it also flys faster than any surface-to-air missile, so by the time it was detected it was already out of range)

I didn't say it allied with the current GOP, I said it provided cover for them.

However, there are distinct similarities as well. Her philosophy is nothing but an anti-philosophy, which is analogous to the GOP's policies which are also nothing but an anti-democrat stance. Neither one is -for- anything, they're only against the other side. Neither one provides any original thought or options.

Objectivism doesn't ally very well with the current GOP party, actually. Objectivism is very much against gov't cronyism. Also, Objectivism is extremely liberal on social issues.

It is true that Objectivism is very closely aligned with libertarianism, but that ain't the Tea Party socially.

What I find fascinating about the Dunning-Kruger Effect is that it implies that the root cause of an individual's stupidity (their lack of talent in a particular field) is due primarily to their refusal to acknowledge their own incompetence, rather than any particular lack of ability itself.

Which is to say: If one can not hear that they are singing out of tune, they do not see the need to correct their pitch in order to improve their singing. As far as they are concerned, they sound wonderful!

It's actually a pretty horrifying conclusion. ><

When you take into account her personal history, her "philosophy" becomes a bit more understandable. Her family lost everything to the Communist revolution when she was a little girl. Thus, her life's ambition was to prevent Communism from gaining any foothold. Objectivism is the result. A philosophy of "not" Communism. If a communist is for it, she's against it. At least in public where it counts.

This makes it perfect cover for the Republican party of No, who built their modern philosophy of government on the same foundation. No to anything the Democrats support.

Slowly... slowly things are changing. Too slowly; it feels almost like a gargantuan task on the scale of ending slavery or overthrowing a government. Still, slowly these pieces of shit will learn to treat people with respect thanks to cell-phone videos and the like, and eventually the US might have a police force again, rather than an occupying military force.
