“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

by Brad Warbiany

From the AP, dated yesterday after the jobs report came out:

Definite signs that business and industry have turned the corner from the temporary period of emergency that followed deflation of the speculative market were seen today by President Obama. The President said the reports to the Cabinet showed the tide of employment had changed in the right direction.

Oh, wait… That’s not right. Let’s correct it:

January 21, 1930
“Definite signs that business and industry have turned the corner from the temporary period of emergency that followed deflation of the speculative market were seen today by President Hoover. The President said the reports to the Cabinet showed the tide of employment had changed in the right direction.” – News dispatch from Washington.

Have an irrationally exuberant weekend, folks!

  2. Missing the forest for the trees, Kevin?

    How about same quote found at GMU? I wasn’t validating the source, Alex Jones, rather I was highlighting the quote itself.

    (In all honesty, I don’t follow Jones enough to realize that I was linking to his site — I found it through a google search)
