“Anyone who clings to the historically untrue -- and thoroughly immoral -- doctrine that 'violence never solves anything' I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms”     Robert A. Heinlein,    Starship Troopers

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)
