Always remember, the average American has one tit and one ball.
Only an ignorant mind is repulsed by constructive criticism. The mind of the American Liberal is very ignorant.
History is a stairway on which men in hobnail boots ascending pass men in velvet slippers descending.
The use of the pen is an indulgence we can afford only because better men and women grip the sword on our behalf.
The constitution is not a suicide pact.
Liberalism is a philosophy of consolation for Western civilization as it commits suicide.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom. Alexis de Tocqueville
Will Rogers observed that it isn't what you don't know that hurts you, it's the things you know that aren't true.
Let's not enforce laws that are already on the books, let's just write new laws we won't enforce.
Those who beat their swords into plowshares will do the plowing for those that didn't.
Never start a fight, but when someone else starts it, youd better finish it.
"Never let the enemy pick the battle site." - Gen. George S. Patton
"America, no softer foe or more treacherous ally."
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." Winston Churchill
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I. ~One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.~
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing"
We hear that there are tumults and riots in Rome, and that voices are raised concerning the army and the quality of our soldiers. Make haste to reassure us that you love and support us as we love and support you, for if we find that we have left our bones to bleach in these sands in vain, then beware the fury of the legions.
It is the soldier, not the priest, who protects freedom of religion; the soldier, not the journalist, who protects freedom of speech. History teaches that a society that does not value its warriors will be destroyed by a society that does.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing that is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept free by the exertions of other men better than himself." - John Stuart Mill
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. George Orwell
-- I must study war and politics so that my children shall be free to study commerce, agriculture and other practicalities, so that their children can study painting, poetry and other fine things. -- John Adams
"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." --Richard Feynman
Pacifism is a shifty doctrine under which a man accepts the benefits of the social group without being willing to pay - and claims a halo for his dishonesty. Robert A. Heinlein
From Freeper River Rat's home page: Americans need to consider carefully the decision for war. Be clear on who their enemy is, and determine to defeat that enemy. Recognize there is no clean, polite or gentlemanly way to kill a stranger. If you are not prepared to kill all who stand with and support your enemy, then surrender to him, for he has already defeated you.
"That state which seperates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools"
"To spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary." Pournelle
"Wars begin when you will, but they do not end when you please" - Machiavelli
"The quickest way to end a war is to lose it" - George Orwell
""Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world. And all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, "The Haj"...
