    read Atlas Shrugged, but it's armed me against "Galt's Gulch."  I completely understand that we need to let them "Go Galt."  Let 'em.  They are not nearly as important as they think they are.  Myth and Lyin' are Orren Boyle and Ma Chalmers, not Galt, Dagny, Francisco, or Howard.  Nobody is.  They're are the vultures in Ayn Rand's fantasy because her "ideal" people DO NOT EXIST PERIOD.  

    What, Trump, Koch Bros., Addleson?  Ha!  What a fantasy they've built for themselves.  Well, I say, go live in that fantasy and build, by yourself, that Galt engine that doesn't exist -- that runs on kinetic energy.  What a joke.  I hope they all move to France, that communist refuge, or Switzerland with its universal health care.  We don't want them any more.  I'm fucking sick of it.
