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

“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: No Winners Edition

by Stephen Littau

Ultimately, it is the job of the media to give straight, objective coverage of any story.

Whatever the final verdict on Zimmerman, the media is clearly guilty of playing on the most primitive racial divisions in our society to fuel racial animosity and boost ratings.

There are no winners here. -Juan Williams

  1. I don’t watch TV, but I was eating at a Burger King and could not avoid hearing the three talking heads on FoxTV. FoxTV played clips from the trial, and the trio commented on them. The woman journalist (I don’t know her name.) was as blatantly biased towards the prosecution as any super-liberal idiot at CBS. The two men seemed to be commentators and not journalists. They, at least, listened to what was said, and provided reasoned comments. It’s interesting (though not surprising) that the journalist was hyperemotional and heavily biases.
