Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wistom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harrassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.”     P. J. Proudhon,    General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century

Simon Says: I’m At A Loss…

by Simon Jester

The current crop of politicos are as vapid as they claim GWB to be.  I can’t write doggerel to match their idiocies — Shakespeare would gape, and Twain would reach for the whisky.

So, if the Muse fails me? I’ll fall back on quotations. 

Thus on the Democrats, and the Republicans, blundering towards the bottom of… well, something:

Error can point the way to truth, while empty-headedness can only lead to more empty-headedness, or to a career in politics.

Thank you, Number Ten Ox… and Mr. Hughart.

  1. VAPID?? I looked the word up. It means un-intelligent. These people are definitely intelligent. And so were the Nazis (to some extent)
    Draw your own conclusions.
