    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...

    More timeless, lib-poking wit from the Gipper: You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by the way he eats jelly beans... Some of you may remember that in my early days, I was sort of a bleeding heart liberal. Then I became a man and put away childish ways. The problem with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant... but that they know so much that simply isn't so A tree's a tree. How many more do you need to look at? Government is like a baby.

  • City must hire 111 bypassed black firefighter candidates, court rules

    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...

    Have you told your mother how much you love her and appreciate all she's done for you? Please do so while you still can. A Newborn's Conversation with God A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?” God said, “Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.” The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.” God said, “Your angel will sing...

    I caught Dennis Miller on the O’Reilly Matter a couple nights back and Miller made a noteworthy dissertation regarding the disreputable tactics of Nancy Pelosi. He referred to Pelosi telling the nation that seniors are going to be meeting premature deaths due to Paul Ryan’s Budget proposal. I really have to take issue with Miller’s rant but before I do, take a minute to view it so we’re on the same page... (continued after video)

    Just saw a clip from the new ATLAS SHRUGGED movie and thought it would be fun to hear everyone's favorite line from the book if you've read it. There are so many to pick from but I think mine is when Francisco has just deliberately caused the crash of D'anconia Copper's stock and he says to James Taggert: "money is the root of all evil, so I just got tired of being evil".

  • 'Oopsies!': Us Weekly apologizes to Sarah Palin over using fake quotes

    02/11/2011 11:46:14 AM PST · by The Unknown Republican · 44 replies
    Whoops! Us Weekly ran a story quoting Sarah Palin demanding that Christina Aguilera be “deported” over her botched performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV. 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...

    Quotations Page ^ | 09 January 2011
    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. You might all keep in mind this quote, which is very true: There are no warlike people--just warlike leaders.~Ralph...

    Best Notable Quotables of 2010: Demanding Respect for Obama While Still Bashing Bush By Rich Noyes | December 24, 2010 | 11:30 Rich Noyes's picture Even as the public grew increasingly disenchanted with Washington's full-throated liberal policies in 2010, the media elite's partisanship remained on full display. The Media Research Center's Best Notable Quotables of 2010 captured the highlights, as journalists continued to blame America's misfortunes on George W. Bush, even as they also insisted that Barack Obama deserved more credit for his amazing accomplishments. In the MRC's "They Don't Miss Him Yet Award for Still Bashing Bush," Time's Joe...

    Friends, take a moment to brush-up on some apposite quotes from Comrade Vladimir Illytch Lenin- advisable considering our smiley-face-commie of a president can likely recite them all standing on his head. This should sound plenty familiar to contemporary American political observers... the ones with their eyes open, anyway: ________________________________________________________ Disarmament is the ideal of socialism Pacifism -the preaching of peace in the abstract- is one of the means of duping the working class International unity of the workers is more important than the national.

    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. Even some more modern zingers like "You can't handle the truth" from "A Few Good Men" and "Expelliarmus!" from the "Harry Potter"...
