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

“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.”     C. S. Lewis

Quote Of The Day: What He Said Edition

by Doug Mataconis

Rep. Patrick McHenry (R, N.C.) on today’s Clemens-McNamee hearings

“This isn’t a hearing, it’s a show trial,” Rep. Patrick T. McHenry, R-N.C., said Tuesday. “And it is another reason why people are fed up with Congress. We’re facing huge challenges in housing, government spending, taxes and illegal immigration. Congress would be better served to focus on any of those issues instead of inserting itself into a name-calling, finger-pointing, school-yard brawl.”

Like I said, what he said.

  1. I disagree with the “priority” argument. The problem isn’t that they have more important things to do (even though they do); the problem is the sports nonsense is nowhere near their jurisdiction.

    And this is coming from someone who absolutely loves baseball and hates what steroids did to it.
