“Men are expendable; women and children are not. A tribe or a nation can lose a high percentage of its men and still pick up the pieces and go on, as long as the women and children are saved. But if you fail to save the women and children, you've had it, you're done, you're through! You join Tyrannosaurus Rex, one more breed that bilged its final test.”     Robert A. Heinlein,    Address at the U.S. Naval Academy April 5, 1973

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)
