Meaning?

Meaning?

“From what I know of them, I would not trust an ordinary politician with my grandmother’s toothbrush,”  said  Major-General Lord Baden-Powell.  Help me understand this assessment of Hellary or any politician.

Hellary revisited

Hellary revisited

In Revolutionary days, Shelburne was accused of being a “pious fraud.”  In reply to his character, Fox said: “I see fraud plainly, but…where is the piety?”  Hellary anyone?

Advice to Hellary

Advice to Hellary
If you, Hellary, would like to “make your life’s work a reality” ( meaningless words I heard on a local radio commercial) -  why not symbolically campaign for a wedding of  Betty Crocker and Aunt Jemima?  The gay, racist and women’s agendas of liberal Democrats will be satisfied. Cultural nannies on the left can lick their fingers after indulging in such a yummy combination filling of  their politically correct pie.

Is war American?

Is war American?

Alexander Hamilton said:  “War … is a science to be acquired and perfected by diligence, by perseverance, by time, and by practice.” I say: warfare is the basic ingredient of American patriotism.  What say you?    

CLINTONS REPRESENT THE 'ORDINARY PEOPLE'

CLINTONS REPRESENT THE 'ORDINARY PEOPLE'
"All of which made another part of the Clinton rollout — a new photo spread in the trendy fashion magazine ELLE featuring Chelsea Clinton modeling high-priced clothing, jewelry and shoes while discussing equal opportunity — all of that made for a discordant note in ClintonWorld's big week.
One photo in the ELLE article featured this caption:
Chelsea Clinton in a Gucci dress, Mateo New York bracelet, Cartier bracelet, Garland Collection ring, Halleh ring.
Another photo featured this caption:
Derek Lam blouse, Stella McCartney trousers, Bulgari necklace, Tiffany & Co. bracelets, Trollbeads bangle, Garland Collection ring, Halleh ring, Brian Atwood pumps."

SARAH HOYT: The Architecture Of Fear.

I can’t push you and I won’t. If you want to keep your opinions — left, right, moderate, libertarian, anarchist — hidden, it’s your job. I am not the keeper of your soul.
However, I want you to think of the dark and dank place that fear and that suspicion and the constant spying lead.
And then I want you to think of how good it would feel to get off your knees, stand on two, look your tormentors in the face and say “No more. I’m free. My thoughts and my opinions, my beliefs, my tastes, my friends are my own. You have no power over me. Not now, and not ever again.”
That’s all. I just want you to think.

PATHETIC STUDENTS ARE TOO DELICATE TO SEE TERRORISTS KILLED

PATHETIC STUDENTS ARE TOO DELICATE TO SEE TERRORISTS KILLED

RENSSELAER POLYTECHNIC’S PRESIDENT MAKES A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR SALARY, but it’s not for academic rigor orbackbone: “Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, New York postponed its screening of American Sniper, scheduled to show April 10, after receiving a request from the school’s Muslim Students Association (MSA) to cancel the screening.”

Pathetic.

Liberty or nothing

            Liberty or nothing
A British Colonel Isaac Barre, said this of us way back in 1765: “I claim to know more of America than most of you, having seen and been conversant in that County.  The People I believe are as truly Loyal as any Subjects the King has, but a people Jealous of their Liberties who will vindicate them, if every they should be violated -  

            The rest if history… until now… when we acquiesce to royal rules and decrees on a daily basis.  Taxes external and internal in colonial America were as nothing to today’s impositions.

PARTICIPATORY FASCISM - Government Defines Rights – Not God or Nature

PARTICIPATORY FASCISM - Government Defines Rights – Not God or Nature
“The mixed economy that has prevailed in the United States since World War II, a uniquely American form of participatory fascism, has lent itself to a substantial expansion of the scope of government authority over economic decision-making.  Given capitalist color by the form of private property rights, the system has denied the substance of any such rights whenever governmental authorities have found it expedient to do so.”

From Robert Higgs’s indispensable 1987 book, Crisis and Leviathan

“Let us hope that Mr. Obama does not become the Neville Chamberlain of our time.”



IT’S LOOKING INCREASINGLY AS IF NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN MIGHT REPRESENT A BEST-CASE SCENARIO.
