Yikes !!!!


Keith Olbermann just played the clip from last night's Tea Party Repug presidential debate in which Wolf Blitzer posed a hypothetical question to Ron Paul about a man who gets a serious illness, has no health coverage and can't afford it, and Ron Paul's response was, "He should take responsibility.....That's what freedom is about."
Then Wolfie asked if the man should be allowed to die, to which one of the Teabaggers in the audience shouted, "Yeah!"



These are some scary, twisted, existentialist mofos.

6. Didn't that have to do with accusations that he was a commie?

 

I can't remember. I've never seen it as a play, just read the story. There were four stories in one book. "Being and Nothingness" was one of the others but I can't remember the other two. It's been over 20 years since I last read it.

9. Sartre declined the Nobel because he believed

that the prize should only be awarded posthumously.
