Even More Quotes of the Day

"The lowliest, indigent, white redneck who lives in a rusted-out old school bus down by the river in Tennessee is 'privileged,' by definition, whereas the children of multimillionaire Barack Obama or multimillionaire Tiger Woods are 'not privileged.'  In fact, since they are black they are, by definition, 'oppressed' by the white redneck who lives in the rusted-out old school bus down by the river."
Tom DiLorenzo

"Everyone once took for granted that the goal was to seize the federal apparatus and impose their vision on the country.
How about just abandoning this crazy, inhumane task?
Why not admit the differences are irreconcilable, and simply go our separate ways?
Is this not obviously the most humane solution?
Or is there some expectation that somehow, down the road, we'll all be reconciled?
To the contrary, it's only going to get worse.
Forcing these irreconcilable parties to continue along in this way is what normal people would call 'extremist.'
Radical decentralization and secession, on the other hand, are the obvious and necessary solution.
And you know it's the sensible solution, because no one is allowed to discuss it."
Tom Woods

"If the pro-gun control people want to blame someone besides the man in there pulling the trigger, the man who illegally got a weapon, maybe they should look in the mirror. Maybe they should consider their own complicity in making guns more difficult for law-abiding citizens to carry. Maybe they should look at their part in this war on guns and gun owners. Perhaps their derision played a part in seeing to it that no one in that church had the means to stop that killer."
Daisy Luther

"If the national anthem is of such importance, why do we not perform it in everything we do? Is breakfast, or the start of our workday, or going to a grocery store, or undergoing root-canal work at the dentist’s, to be preceded by this tune? Do we refrain from extending such collective foolishness into our daily lives because the numbers of persons are not sufficient to convert individuals into fungible components of a mob?"
Butler Shaffer

"National borders have never really been about how nations self-identify. They have always been about access to resources and the ability to impose taxes. Politics is about how, and on whom, those revenues are spent. The larger a country, the more people it can tax. The larger a government, the more professional politicians and civil servants it can employ."
Ivo Vegter

"Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt."
Christopher Hitchens

"If the flag is symbolic of government and that government lies at every turn, enslaves its people, steals from their labor, passes laws that are an execration to their Christian faith, takes from them their liberty, mandates the murder of 1 million babies a year, imports tens of thousands of immigrants to replace American workers and drive down wages, and that makes war on other countries that have not threatened us, why should any acknowledge its presence with more than a sneer?"
Bob Livingston

"The claim that 'diversity is America’s greatest strength' is the biggest of all lies.  The truth is that diversity is America’s greatest weakness.  We see this not only in America, but in countries like Germany, France, and Belgium, where far-left leaders have destroyed their once proud cultures with immigration policies that ignore the wants and needs of their own citizens.
As is always the case, when I use the term diversity, I am not referring to a person’s skin color, be he white, brown, yellow, or other.  Diversity is about a person’s cultural beliefs and practices.
The hard truth is that tribalism, which has been around since the dawn of civilization, is the underpinning of a civilized and peaceful society.  The reality that those on the Radical Left (and many in the RINO camp) refuse to accept is that people prefer to be around others who are culturally most like them and, the corollary, they have little desire to be in close proximity to those who are culturally different.
When those in power try to force tribes with different cultural values to live together, it tends to engender hatred and violence, which is why the government should remove itself from the social-experimentation business and let tribes live separately and in peace with other tribes."
Robert Ringer

“'Social justice' can only be achieved through voluntary interactions among individuals within a given social unit. Stealing from some and giving to others through a concept of forced redistribution only creates control and therefore injustice; an unjustly created permanent victim group and an unjustly created permanent dependent group.
That’s not social justice, that’s social control."
Garry Reed

"Stalemate in Korea? Perpetual trouble in Korea? Loss in Vietnam? Continual war in the Middle East and Afghanistan? Confrontation with Iran, Russia and China? Turmoil in Libya and Africa? Worldwide American commitments and possibilities for warfare? Where exactly are the just compensations to taxpayers for the vast takings devoted to the U.S. military establishment? Where is this mythical 'national security' that has been the object?"
Michael Rozeff

"To be blunt about it, in 1954 Armistice Day was hijacked by a militaristic US congress and renamed Veterans Day. Today few Americans understand the original purpose of Armistice Day, or even remember it. The message of peace seeking has been all but erased. Worst of all, Veterans Day has devolved into a hyper-nationalistic quasi-religious celebration of war and the putatively valiant warriors who wage it. We no longer have a national day to recognize or reflect upon international peace."
Arnold Oliver
