Things That Grind My Gears

Ayn Rand's philosophy grinds my gears, and - truthfully - I do not think I would have liked her personally, either. Paul Ryan supporters claim that he no longer believes in Ms. Rand's philosophy. I suppose he really had to do that since her philosophy is an out-and-out atheistic bit of tripe.

When did he deny her atheistic ontology of the world? It seems pretty recently. At least he did not name a child "Rand" as some other politicians have done, making it harder for the sons to avoid the fallout of the fathers.

Perhaps Mr. Ryan was unaware of Rand's atheism. People like to describe Ryan as a policy and budget "wonk". Apparently he is not a philosophy "wonk".
