Of Course Ed Snider Is An Ayn Rand Wingnut

sniderThe plot thickens with that whole Left Behind-style Atlas Shrugged movie we’ve been talking about: Turns out, Ed Snider executive-produced it! Snider, perhaps taking a page from Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie’s recent forays into Hollywood, told the Metro, “They tried to make this film for 50 years. Hollywood did not want to make this movie because it did not adhere to its liberal agenda.” Which then triggered his Pavlovian Tea Party response: “The United States is now a mixture of capitalism and socialism.” Okay, guy. Groan.

    I know Mr Snyder wouldn’t want to be called out as a hypocryte stuck on welfare, so I guess he’ll be returning the $30 million dollars of public money Comcast received to build the giant USB memory stick at 17th and Arch and appoloogizing for the cable television monopoly this city guaranteed him for so long.

    Mr. Snyder and his buddies seem to be doing JUST FINE under this evil combo of capitalism & socialism. How the fuck can somebody with a net worth of $300 million and who lives in THIS house (http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/ed-sniders-house/view/?service=1) gripe about the system under which he obviously flourishes?

    He’s obviously upset about having to pay the servants instead of owning them.

    Not too be confused with Trump Tara.

    Ed’s house is nice but I prefer the neighbor’s to the right however, Ed has a tennis court and the neighbor doesn’t. Decisions, decisions.

    JB…I hope you understand that I do not begrudge anyone the success they find in this absolutely amazing (if imperfect) country of ours as long as it does not come through nefarious or underhanded or despotic means. This country enables the achievement of wildly fantastic goals without resorting to the degradation of our fellow citizens or their communities. I will continue to despise those who realize success without adhering to those basic guidelines.

    It has been an absolutely super hectic and crazy week with work and social life, so here is the latest updates in the life of Arthur Kade:

    1) I needed to get away to help decompress and detach from some of the things that I have been emotionally and spiritually dealing with, so I spent the weekend in my second home of NYC. On Saturday, I went to the hottest day party in town at LAVO NYC (It is impossible to get into, but luckily my face is still pretty recognizable in NYC), and I have to be honest, it’s one of the best looking crowds you will ever be in a room with. I was several models from Wilhelmina and Ford, and there were at least 100 other dimes in the room, it was a packed house, and everyone was dancing on couches with magnums of champagne and vodka at their tables all afternoon. I said to one of The Entourage who was with me, “This makes the other parties at Bagatelle and Revel look like Single A Baseball”. The marketing managers at LAVO recognized me while walking through, with one stopping me and saying “Hey, Your Arthur Kade?”, and then brought me and my friends over to their table to party. It was like being in St. Tropez..Just pure Kade Style. I then called the GM at Buddakan in Philly to do me a favor and get me reservations at the NYC location, and he called me back and we had 10pm reservations with the best seats in the house. He’s the best!!!

    so.. a full year and a half after this shitty blog post… can you critique some of Ayn Rands ethical principles or are you just a typical “She’s a greedy bitch!” type of pseudo-intellectual. i would assume the latter.
