"Freedom is not Americas gift to the world. Freedom is the almighty Gods gift to each man and woman in this world."
- My President, George W. Bush - October 21, 2004 @ a rally in Hershey, PA
At some point it becomes a seriously immoral act to refuse to acknowledge the truth, Kelly writes. At some point, you have to ask whether it is morally acceptable to regard those who yet refuse to come to terms with Communism other than as people who have chosen to adhere to known evil. - The late Michael Kelly
"The role of government is to create an environment in which people who've got a good idea and are willing to work for it can make a living, and expand their businesses and employ people. "
President George W. Bush, June 12, 2002
"It is less important to have unanimity than it is to be making the right decision and doing the right thing, even though at the outset it may seem lonesome..." "Leadership in the right direction finds followers and supporters."
-U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, August 27, 2002 - Speech to U.S. Marines at Camp Pendleton regarding Iraq.
Churchill once said, "We shall draw from the very heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival."
"But speaking here in my capacity as a polished, sophisticated European as well, it seems to me the laugh here is on the polished, sophisticated Europeans. They think Americans are fat, vulgar, greedy, stupid, ambitious and ignorant and so on. And they've taken as their own, as their representative American, someone who actually embodies all of those qualities." - Christopher Hitchens commenting on Michael Moore while appearing on "Scarborough Country," 5/18/2004.
"When I hear people say: "I want the old Tony Blair back, the one who cares", I tell you something. I don't think as a human being, as a family man, I've changed at all. But I have changed as a leader. I have come to realise that caring in politics isn't really about "caring". It's about doing what you think is right and sticking to it. So I do not minimise whatever differences some of you have with me over Iraq and the only healing can come from understanding that the decision, whether agreed with or not, was taken because I believe, genuinely, Britain's future security depends on it." - British PM Tony Blair to his Labour Party's conference the week of 9/27/2004.
"Facts are meaningless, you can use facts to prove anything..." Homer - that's right, Homer Simpson
|"Every war with fascism is our business."
"Who defeated Hitler and saved Europe from fascism? The French? No, the Americans did. We thanked them then because they saved us. Today we criticise them because they're saving somebody else."
"If we will keep closing our eyes to evil, then that evil will defeat us tomorrow. Unfortunately there's more hatred in men than love. Those who murder understand only force and nothing else. And the only force that is able to stand against them is the American democracy."
"Please don't tell me what the Spanish did. So what? Do you seriously think that it will save them from further attacks? No. The weak just get punched in the head. Pacifism lost a long time ago."
"France used to be a great power, culturally and intellectually. And what happened to them? They didn't want to fight for their own democracy, they thought it wasn't really their war [in 1939]. And they lost everything, because when you bend over and take it - even once - then you're finished."
Marek Edelman - the last surviving military leader of the Jewish Uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943, being interviewed about Iraq
"It's been a brilliant journey of self-awakening. And now you've simply got to ask yourself this: What is happiness to you?"
