“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 Randall McElroy III @ The Distributed Republic:
Left and right, pundits applaud Obama Nobel Peace Prize speech
This, to the discerning mind, is a clear sign that the speech is full of shameful lies that would make a decent person cringe.
Reminds me of my definition of the word “bipartisan”.
