Since Jan 31, 1998
I'm a proud (unhyphenated) American living in Franklin, Tennessee! And I was #1244 to sign up on January 31, 1998! I've also been confirmed to be the one that coined the term "Belly Girl"!
When law and morality contradict each other the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law. - French Journalist and Economist Frederic Bastiat
Be not intimidated, nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery, and cowardice. - Samuel Adams
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds. - Samuel Adams
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that time on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world's great civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependency back again to bondage. - Scottish Jurist and Historian Sir Alex Fraser Tyler
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of freedom! - President John F. Kennedy, 1961
You are either with us, or you are with the terrorist! - President George W. Bush, September 20, 2001
We've witnessed, in little over a generation, the swiftest advance of freedom in the 2,500-year story of democracy. Historians in the future will offer their own explanations for why this happened. Yet we already know some of the reasons they will cite. It is no accident that the rise of so many democracies took place in a time when the world's most influential nation was itself a democracy. - President George W. Bush, December 2003
What? Me Worry?
The Obama Economy Even Gets To Me
I'm so depressed I started eating...
I'm You're Huckleberry!
States I've visited:
You are Batman
You are dark, love gadgets
and have vowed to help the innocent
not suffer the pain you have endured.
