    I saw a quote on Facebook and I was surprised that the person in question said this. Let's see if my fellow FReepers can guess who said the following... "Should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things, but their number is negligible and they are stupid."

    The Economic Collapse ^ | December, 2010 | The Economic Collapse
    Did you see Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on 60 Minutes the other night?  Bernanke portrayed the Federal Reserve as the great protector of the U.S. economy, he claimed that unemployment would be 15 percent higher if the Federal Reserve had sat back and done nothing during the financial crisis and he even started laying the groundwork for a third round of quantitative easing.  Unfortunately, 60 Minutes did not ask Bernanke any hard questions and did not challenge him on his past record.  It was almost as if they considered Bernanke to be above criticism.  But someone in the mainstream...

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | May 13, 2011 | Fran Spielman
    The Chicago Fire Department must hire 111 bypassed black firefighter candidates — and distribute “tens of millions of dollars” in damages to 6,000 others who will never get that chance — a federal appeals court ruled Friday, upholding a landmark ruling. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in a 9-to-0 decision, that, contrary to the city’s contention, African-American candidates hadn’t waited too long before filing a lawsuit that accused the city of discriminating against them for the way it handled a 1995 firefighter’s entrance exam. On Friday, the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that ruling and sent...

The only problem: It never happened. The item “quoted” Palin trashing Aguilera as “a demanding beauty queen who’s clearly in over her head” and adding for good measure, “If I were president, I’d deport Ms. Augilera back to wherever it is she’s from and give Amy Smart a call.” The fake quotes originated from an Onion-like satirical web site, relaying a fictional radio interview between the former Governor of Alaska and Fox News...

    The quote "The First Casualty of War is Truth" has been attributed to the Greek Tragic Dramatist. We are now facing this very concept in the Giffords shooting. Almost all initial reaction to this event are outright lies as to motive and attribution to cause. However, by the time the truth is discovered, lies and falsehood will have done their damage. Democrats will strive to make sure everyone who disagree with their Godless philosophy is pictured as having potential to violence.

    Movies and catchphrases go together like popcorn and microwaves. However also like popcorn, some of these catchphrases can get a little burnt and a lotta stale. There are, of course, certain movie catchphrases that have stood the test of time and will continue to do so. "Here's lookin' at you kid" from "Casablanca" and "We're not in Kansas anymore" from "The Wizard of Oz" are just a couple of examples of movie catchphrases that will never grow old.

He won the Cold War and defeated Communism, as Margaret Thatcher said, "without firing a shot".

    The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich ^ | 1959 | William L. Shirer
    "For the first time—in the last relatively free election Germany was to have—the Nazi Party now could employ all the vast resources of the government to win votes. Goebbels was jubilant. "Now it will be easy," he wrote in his diary on February 3, "to carry on the fight, for we can call on all the resources of the State. Radio and press are at our disposal. We shall stage a masterpiece of propaganda. And this time, naturally, there is no lack of money."

    NEW HAVEN — Reinhold Niebuhr, the famed Protestant theologian, will be credited with writing the Serenity Prayer in the next edition of the Yale Book of Quotations. “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference,” is the prayer that is ubiquitous with Alcoholics Anonymous, which uses it as part of its 12-step recovery program. Fred Shapiro, an associate librarian and lecturer at Yale Law School and editor of the Yale Book of Quotations, last year questioned the authorship of the prayer, based on...

    Ooops. A campaign mailer from 10th Congressional District candidate and Democrat Lt. Gov. John Garamendi that hit mailboxes today contained a reference to a quote from the wrong guy. The Garamendi mailer states that his Republican challenger “David Harmer supports off shoring jobs” and cites a story from the Utah’s Deseret News from April 23, 2004. Unfortunately for Garamendi’s opposition research team, the story quotes the David Harmer who was executive director of the Utah State Department of Community and Economic Development. The David Harmer who is running against Garamendi never held that job and wasn’t living in Utah at...
