+Indy VMUG Thank you all for putting on a great Conference again this year.

One quick question: Can you double check the presentation slide-deck for "Practical Path to NSX" session? The PDF I am seeing looks nothing like the presentation I sat through (which had a lot of specific practical "learn this" information) and more like a generic NSX pitch.

I'm not a huge fan of Ayn Rand's writing. Her imagery is overly flowery. Her exposition is redundant - rewording and reiterating points like a drill sergeant. And her characters are 1-dimensional and black and white: either heroic and God-like, or conniving and villainous.

However, her stories do touch on some important universal themes and reveal some powerful observations about the nature of politics, govt and the collusion of the state and big businesses.

This article touches on several such aspects and how they are not the simplistic over-exaggeration they were often caricatured as being.

Why we reject the argument of "if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear."

Don't fall for politicians claiming every new story is the greatest threat/risk we've ever faced.

Notice that it's always the ones claiming that bad things are going to happen that get the soundbites and the news interviews. The people that point out statistics and how low the risk really is aren't really as sexy and so nobody sees them. 
WATCH: The kids from Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark? learn the true meaning of terror...election-year rhetoric.

Can we please get through the election so all the "What's Hot" posts aren't ridiculously lazy "Republicans are evil racists" and "Democrats are stupid socialists"?
