Some of my favorite Quotations

Ecclesiastes 9:11
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Matthew 23:24
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Proverbs 26:11
As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.

Jeremiah 1:5 (New International Version)
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would 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." --C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock

"The essential difference between Constitutional rights and modern socialist rights is that Constitutional rights - like the right to liberty, bear arms, or free speech don't cost other people anything. Modern socialist rights, like health care, shelter, food, and whatnot, cost somebody to provide, so they involve ordering people to make and distribute goods at a government-set rate."

"Politicians never accuse you of 'greed' for wanting other people's money -- only for wanting to keep your own money."-- Joseph Sobran

"Every government interference in the economy consists of giving an unearned benefit, extorted by force, to some men at the expense of others." .....Ayn Rand

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views. .....Wm F. Buckley

No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people. -- H. L. Mencken

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." Margaret Thatcher

People who believe in a conspiracy theories "develop a selective perception, their mind refuses to accept contrary evidence, As soon as you criticize a conspiracy theory, you become part of the conspiracy."

Government Expenditures shall only be referred to as "insignificant" when they are so small that the IRS would not hound a widow or an orphan into an early grave to collect same!

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a Turd by the clean end."
R. J. Wiedemann LtCol. USMC Ret

Barack Obama: Making GW Bush look smart, Bill Clinton look honest, Jimmy Carter look competent, Lyndon Johnson like Alexander the Great and Richard Nixon like less of a crook!

"Americans tend to see themselves as independent doers, not dependent victims. They don't like to be told, especially by those with fancy academic pedigrees, that they are helpless and in need of government aid."

One who hates what most people love probably savors his uniqueness. He believes that secession from his country, class, race and species bespeaks righteousness and partakes of the heroic. But above all he has an almost insane vanity. ... He lusts instead for an apocalyptic denouement that will topple the power structure and give him his chance.

We are bleeding to death financially but not because our throat is cut. We are bleeding to death from a million pinpricks.

"Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants - but debt is the money of slaves."

The difference between the good guys and the bad guys is whether they use human shields or make themselves human shields.
