"There are too many people, especially among the intelligentsia, who will never appreciate the things that have made this country great until after those things have been destroyed-- with their help. Then, of course, it will be too late." ~ Thomas Sowell

"Being openly mocked is not something leftists can tolerate for very long because what they want more than anything else is to be admired and esteemed. They are, after all, on a mission to save the world and it is paramount that others acknowledge the sanctity of [t]his goal." ~ Bernard Chapin

"In a way, Obama is the Jon Stewart candidate. He sits on the edge of politics, making wry and sardonic comments about what other people do without doing anything himself. No wonder younger voters love him; he gets to be ironic while taking no responsibility for anything. And when people press him for action, hed prefer to eat his waffle in peace until he can find a way to act as a commentator rather than as a real agent for change." ~ Ed Morrissey

Beware of socialism and nannystaters:

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ~ CS Lewis

"In the past, compassion was extended to the elderly, the abused, the innocent and the infirm. But during the last few decades, it has become an entitlement demanded by members of various voting blocs. In short order, it has been transformed into political currency doled out by political hacks trolling for votes." ~ Burt Prelusky

Quote of the Day

"The public at large after the initial terrorist news alerts and warnings about severe threat-red level usually settles down to indifference. Then there is a return to business as usual. Last autumns near riots to buy a Playstation3 video game have given way to jostling in long lines for the new i-Phones both are as essential to madcap consumers as Hillarycare apparently is not.

In the same way, we went right from the postmortem hysteria over Anna Nicole Smith to Paris Hiltons new spirituality after her short jail sentence. With the economy strong and consumers flooded with inexpensive toys, life is very good in the West much too good to worry about much else. September 11 is as far from us as the Blitz is from Londoners." ~ Victor Davis Hanson

Why are Westerners so insecure about everything that is so wonderful about the West: political freedom, free press, freedom of expression, equal rights for women and men and gays and heterosexuals, critical thinking, and the great strength of scrutinizing ideas - and especially faith? ... If we do not understand the differences between Islam and the West - why one is so great and the other so low - and we don't fight back and win this battle of ideas in order to preserve our civilization, in my view there is no point to your profession [journalism] or mine." ~ Ayaan Hirsi Ali, advocate for women's rights in Islamic cultures

Quote of the Day

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birthplace or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American.

"If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn't doing his part as an American.

"We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. We have room for but one language here and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns out our people as Americans, and American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house, and we have room for but one soul [sic] loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people." ~ Excerpt from a letter written by former President Teddy Roosevelt in January of 1919.

Re. the proposed "comprehensive" immigration reform bill (aka amnesty bill):

There may be practical and humanitarian reasons to allow continued residence, but why even consider citizenship, other than to engineer the electorate to the advantage of one party?" ~ Thomas Lifson

"Modern liberals, who have forgotten the meaning and value of liberty, now want to prescribe a rule or a policy for everything, including when and where trees are planted. In their view, the world is putty to be molded to their vision of the good. It is perfectible, and any defect in human relations, income distribution, the number or placement of trees, or even ones emotional state is subject to a new law, regulation, or bureaucratic control." ~ David Strom

"It's just a matter of time before we live in the time of the martyrs -- not the old martyrs who were true victims, but the misappropriation of that existential category for the purposes of instinctual expression -- i.e., sex, violence, or general envious acquisitiveness under cover of a "progressive agenda" -- for no one is more greedy and acquisitive than the leftist who believes he is intrinsically entitled to the fruits of another's labor. But his victimhood is a convenient way to conceal his soul-destroying envy from himself -- and even to convert what is a soul-illness to a political virtue." ~ Gagdad Bob

Truer Today Than Ever Before: Quote of the Day

Think of this the next time someone tells you that the UN should be in charge of [insert issue]:

"If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last
stand on Earth. And this idea that government is beholden to the people,
that it has no other source of power except to sovereign people, is still
the newest and most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to
man. This is the issue of this election. Whether we believe in our capacity
for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and
confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan
our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves." ~ Ronald Wilson Reagan

How I miss that man!

"Thankfully, "global warming" is slowly being recognized for the ginormous scam it is. It took Al Gore and then the UN to wake us up to the latest stupid leftist guilt-trip. Ironically, some were taking global warming seriously until these morons took it over as their pet issue of the decade.

As soon as Al and the others stop flying their private jets around the world to go to meetings on global warming, I'll give the issue another look. Until then, think I'll drive my SUV, with no passengers, over to the supermarket to pick up one can of soda. Or not. Maybe I'll just drive around for the fun of it. 13 MPG." ~ Commenter "Mega" on a post at Moonbattery

Quote of the Day!

Actually, it was said yesterday by Rush Limbaugh on his afternoon program, but I missed the show and only read the transcript today:

Well, they're [the media] never going to give up because, for this reason: Clinton's legacy is theirs. The media that we're discussing are all from the same generation. There is a generational tie to these people age-wise, culturally, educationally. Clinton's legacy is theirs. And that's why they are obsessed with it. Because if Clinton is allowed to fail and be portrayed as a loser or didn't do anything as you say, it doesn't reflect on the man they're trying to create as the most important Democrat president perhaps last century, second only (and it's a close race) to FDR.
