"The Declaration of Independence was the Declaration of Responsibility too." - Sarah Palin
Good grief. That’s throw away fluff.
Until you can say you’ve done as much to protect and defend our rights and freedoms as she or her son (who’s in the military) have...then I suggest you garner up some sense of decency and at least appreciate the simple yet profound wisdom she offers...regardless of whether you ever vote for her or not.
Hunter gave a speech too. Standing room only full of crickets.
Yeah. I wish all conservatives could be considered “profound” for uttering such inanities.
Well, it was good enough for a survivor of a Nazi death camp who became one of the greatest psychoanalysts in the world, so I guess Sarah thought it might be a tad more important than you do.
Viktor E. Frankl, M.D., Ph.D., Viennna, Austria, 1905-1997, was a celebrated neurologist and psychiatrist, and author of 32 books. Some forty years ago in his national best selling book Mans Search for Meaning, Dr. Frankl advanced the idea that to have freedom endure, liberty must be joined with responsibility. To that end, he proposed that the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast be supplemented by a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast.
you’re right... there was a much better quote today:
“All Americans should get tested for HIV”
“American will no longer be the leading world economy”
those are so much better
Oprah is watched by millions each day too.
It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." ~ Theodore Roosevelt
LOL. NOW THAT is the way to compare. Yes. It’s pathetic what we have infesting the Whitehouse now.
And to be fair to Palin, I’m sure she really did have some keeper lines in her speech. She usually does.
Hmmmm. So do you think that Palin reads Frankl, or that she has a speechwriter that does?
Or is she as great a philosopher of the human spirit, a genius who passed through Hitler’s death camps?
Uh huh? Still waiting for the fart sniffers to post an article on DeMint or Barbour or any of the potential rivals. Instead, we get threads like this and those from SE OHIO Young Cofused Conservative guy.
No...He/she is saying that the quote by Palin isn’t some fluff saying.....somebody of great importance believed the same thing as well
Isn’t TR the guy who broke up the trusts and created the system of national parks? Not every FRiend will agree with the actions, or be swayed by the arguments of a man acted thus.
You not only insult Sarah, you insult Frankl.
Frankl's work largely involved people learning to overcome the effects of poisonous mental and emotional attacks precisely like those embodies in your "questions."
LOL, I really have to thank you - you couldn't have possibly illustrated the viciousness of what Frankl taught people to understand and heal from any better!
You'd love it if DH got this kind of attention and you know it.
Okay. Let’s say I grant you accuracy. Can you please teach me exactly what you are talking about?
You'll "grant" me accuracy?
LOL - don't strain yourself.
No, I can't teach you anything - because you already know what I'm talking about. Go play somewhere else.
Great minds think alike.
Did that ever occur to you?
