Sure Neil, the "Christian" (wtf??) thing to do is provide mass amounts of shit f***ing healthcare at everybody's expense with absolutely zero chance of real medical innovation.

Just because you happen to disagree with him does not make him a phony or ignorant.
See post 18 and then look up the word ignorant.  It applies in spades to Mr. Peart here.


Look in the mirror.
Well, THAT was substantive... :wacko:

Mr Drum God provided no evidence for his claims.  

"Mr. Drum God" also didn't publish the quote, so he had no means to provide evidence. We have no idea what else was or was not said. Maybe that was an excerpt of a 15 minute dissertation Peart gave to the man. Which would actually be WAY more Neil's style, boring the hell out of someone in a long, monotone droning sort of way.

I suppose, given RSs recent record of journalistic integrity, misquoting him or taking his quotes out of context is possible.

However, it's doubtful that RS would suppress anything that would make a member of the GOP look bad.

I don't trust those quotes. I doubt Peart always knows what he's talking about, but I also doubt his full comments were as ignorant/insensitive as the quotes. And having seen Neil talk in many interviews and the like, there's no way he said nothing more than what the article quotes. Much more likely he explained and over explained for at least five minutes in an attempt to rationalize and justify his opinions and actions in an rather intelligent, but possibly ignorant, manner.

Also, the whole cease and desist order against Rand Paul, I read into that significantly once while trying to look up info on the connections between Rush and Ayn Rand. Neil didn't personally issue that statement; Rush did. The band doesn't want their music used in politics. Period.

I would like to see neil live in the real world, not the one he has now, and see the reality of a lot of life that money can't buy you, like working with low class people or having to deal with real issues without being able to hop on your bike for a year and run away..

There are no hard and fast rules for libertarianism, other than not being a statist pig, and both Neil and Paul seem to dig government intervention when it suits their agendas, both right and left.

Now I'm done.
I promised myself I'd never get into politics here and i did, f**k it. Barf

If Peart circa 2015 is a libertarian, Rosie O'Donnell is Miss America.

I'm surprised that everyone is surprised. Haven't you read his blog posts? He's been making statements like this for YEARS.

I remember cringing an awful lot when I heard the Jim Ladd interview with Neil a couple of months ago.  Of course, I'm partly to blame.  As soon as Jim Ladd called Roger Waters "intelligent", I should have turned the interview off right then and there.

You still buy Phony's albums, go to Phony's concerts and participate in a forum supporting the Phony. I guess the Phony part really isn't that important.

That's just your biased opinion because you are a Rand Paul fanboi.

Me, I doff my cap to Mr Peart for the first time in a long time. Good on him.

Now we know why he avoids the fan base like the plague - they're all Randian psychopaths devoid of humanity.

If you don't think Waters is intelligent then that's your opinion. Meanwhile I think you are stupid for making that comment. Well maybe not stupid, silly I guess. Immature most definitely.

I think the problem some of us are having has to do with how Mr. Peart expressed his politics. Not agreeing with Mr. Paul's politics is one thing, but to state, "he obviously hates woman and brown people" is lazy and uninformed. Mr. Peart is expressing his politics with talking points. Uninformed talking points. By the way, I'm not a fan of either Rand.

Exactly.

Randian politics are for middle class adolescent teenagers.  Not men.
