Political Parties With Shitty Websites: The Alaskan Independence Party

December 27, 2013


By Hercules Abdelaziz After Misty Lee’s thorough investigation of the crappy Angelfire-hosted website of the Vermont independence movement, the scientific editors of Selecting Stones thought that it might be a good idea to carry forward with some scrutiny of a more well-known separatist movement’s piece-of-shit website.  Accordingly, I decided to contribute a short article on […]

Political Parties With Shitty Websites: The Green Mountain Republic

December 22, 2013


By Misty Lee “…a separation must be staged with the bloated bureaucracy of the United States.  This break must occur on all levels: political, economic, societal, cultual, [sic] and emotional.” So says the webmaster of our latest shitty website, that of a party “founded on the belief that democracy CANNOT be practiced on a large […]

Political Parties With Shitty Websites: The Objectivist Party

December 8, 2013


By Misty Lee In early 2008, Thomas Stevens — who advertises himself as “Dr. Tom Stevens” — resigned from the Boston Tea Party and founded the Objectivist Party on February 2, the birthday of reactionary author Ayn Rand.  While Stevens has a bachelor’s degree from New York University and a law degree from Hofstra, he […]

Political Parties With Shitty Websites

December 1, 2013


By Misty Lee In the United States of America, all children who attend school learn how the electoral system works: When they reach the age of eighteen they are obliged to register for jury duty, and as an added extra they will be given the option of voting for one of the two parties that […]

Kansas City Wants to Know: What Is a Human Being?

September 24, 2013


Yesterday, it came to the attention of the scientific editors of Selecting Stones that our first experiment in video had been taken down by YouTube.  Well, looks like we have yet another enemy!

The General Ideological Changes of Direction After Hitler’s Downfall

July 13, 2013


Why are so many Americans so ill-informed about the science of political economy?  Did the United States of America really just pick up where the Nazis left off after World War II? What does it say about the general ideological changes of direction since the downfall of Hitler that the only “public intellectuals” allowed by […]

Pressing Ahead: Selecting Stones at Year 2

May 1, 2013


The scientific editors of Selecting Stones are all exhausted as of late.  We’ve been putting in long hours as wage-laborers, and well, y’all know how that goes! So, this year on May 1, we must confess that we simply don’t have the energy at the moment to make as grandiose of a statement as we […]

A Selecting Stones Video: “Europe in the 2000s vs. Europe in the 2010s”

We probably won’t be making this a regular thing, but as an experiment the scientific editors of Selecting Stones have decided to create a video and publish it on YouTube.  The title of our video is “Europe in the 2000s vs. Europe in the 2010s” and its topic is exactly that: an audiovisual comparison between […]

God Is Law and Shirley Phelps-Roper Is His Lawyer

February 26, 2013


The materialist Ludwig Feuerbach explains it best in The Essence of Christianity: “Religion is the dream of the human mind.  But even in dreams we do not find ourselves in emptiness or in heaven, but on earth, in the realm of reality.”  Anathema Maranatha!  We should only like to add that in this realm of […]

Juan Cole Watch: What does Juan Cole’s secret Love Affair with the CIA say about Academia?

January 27, 2013


Middle East Studies professor Juan Cole fancies himself something of a superstar among academic armchair-leftists, thanks in no small part to his mindless and puerile blog Informed Comment, which is apparently quite popular among other academic armchair-leftists.  What are the “left-wing” credentials of somebody like Juan Cole, though?  It remains something of a question.  After […]

Things That Are Caesar’s

January 26, 2013


By Phil Ingram In the first installment of The 9/11 Necromancy, the question was raised: how exactly did the attacks of September 11, 2001 manage to catch a nation of 280 million patriots entirely by surprise?  Was the United States of America still the country of the future or had the time to repay the […]

January 10, 2013


Q: Will capitalism survive the next storm or is this truly the end of the world?
