Evil can only be fought.

but in terms of how they affect their parents:
as obstacle to career or wealth, as prized possession,
as fashion accessory, as guarantors of personal genetic immortality,
or as guards against alienation and loneliness.

Julia Black (Producer)

" The fight for freedom is God's fight. Freedom is an eternal law of God.
Men cannot break it with impunity, but can only break themselves upon it.
When a man stands for freedom, he stands for God.
As long as he stands for freedom, he stands with God.
And were he to stand alone, he would still stand with God.
Any man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."

Ezra Taft Benson (patriot, statesman)

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

President Ronald Reagan

"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.

"If you analyze it, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism."
President Ronald Reagan

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

"You can’t be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy."

upon which all subsequent reasoning must depend.

"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors."

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
Cliff Clavin (sage)

"The more laws and order are made prominent, the more thieves and robbers there will be."

"Property is the fruit of labor...property is desirable...is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."
Abraham Lincoln

"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance.
The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.
"
C. S. Lewis

"The forces of safety are afoot in the land. I, for one, believe it is a conspiracy - a conspiracy of Safety Nazis shouting "Sieg Health" and seeking to trammel freedom, liberty, and large noisy parties. The Safety Nazis advocate gun control, vigorous exercise, and health foods. The result can only be a disarmed, exhausted, and half-starved population ready to acquiesce to dictatorship of some kind"
P.J. O'Rourke

"Truth does not hide.
You can go everywhere there is to go without crossing your front door.
You can see all there is to see without peering through your window.
The faster you travel, the less you see.
"
Lao Tzu (The sage, author)

"An explanation of cause is not a justification by reason."
C. S. Lewis

"There is no hell. There is only France."
Frank Zappa

"In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Lower Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. That is an average of a trifle over one mile and a third per year. Therefore, any calm person, who is not blind or idiotic, can see that in the Old Oolitic Silurian Period, just a million years ago next November, the Lower Mississippi River was upwards of one million three hundred thousand miles long, and stuck out over the Gulf of Mexico like a fishing-rod. And by the same token any person can see that seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Lower Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long, and Cairo and New Orleans will have joined their streets together, and be plodding comfortably along under a single mayor and a mutual board of aldermen. There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact."
Mark Twain

"Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right."
Ezra Taft Benson

"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in.
Aim at earth and you get neither.
"
C. S. Lewis

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there will be a shortage of sand"
Milton Freidman(economist)

"It’s disturbingly classist and elitist for gay men to think they can love their children unreservedly after treating their surrogate mother like an incubator, or for lesbians to think they can love their children unconditionally after treating their sperm-donor father like a tube of toothpaste"
Robert Oscar Lopez

"If a lot of dogs are on the beach, the first thing they do is smell each other's asses.
The information that's gotten somehow makes pacifists out of all of them.

"
Democrat Dustin Hoffman (idiot, Obama supporter)

"There are all kinds of atrocities and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free-fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50-caliber machine guns, which we were granted and ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search-and-destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare. All of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions...."
Democrat John Kerry (Senator, confessed war criminal)

"It is true that liberty is precious — so precious that it must be rationed."
