Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“There was no doubt all kinds of sin and vice and debauchery in Jesus’ time. Moreover, Christianity was an outlaw religion for the first few centuries of its existence. Yet, we never hear Jesus or Paul or anyone else talking about “mobilizing” Christian voters to ‘take back Rome‘.”
Doug Newman

“Cooperation doesn’t come out of the barrel of a gun. Is it too much to ask that the self-righteous busy bodies spend only their own money (or money given voluntarily to them) and stop making war on the rest of us?”

“My philosophy: Win the battle for freedom in your own head, against your own ignorance, first. Enter the battlefield of ideas and share them with others, if you like, soon thereafter. Worry about who pays for the roads in Libertopia much later, if ever. Trust a bureaucrat, even a well-armed bureaucrat, with the future, never.”
Wilton D. Alston

“Politicians claim the financial industry needs more regulation, but when I'm being robbed I don't want the cops to subsidize the robbery and I don't want them to "regulate" it either. I want them to stop it. When they don't, I smell a payoff.”
Joe Schembrie

“Only our own government possesses the motive, means, and opportunity to tyrannize us. Only our own government has already significantly curtailed our liberty.”
Michael Rozeff

From the Darkness:
"This crisis demonstrates beyond doubt that a global capital market requires much stronger global cooperation and supervision. And we need to ensure that we have an effective global early warning system to alert us across continents to economic and financial risk."

"We are proposing a world leaders' meeting in which we must agree the principles and policies for restructuring the financial system across the globe." British Prime Minister Gordon Brown

"The government's role will be limited and temporary. These measures are not intended to take over the free market, but to preserve it."
Lying GW Bush defending the government’s bank “investment.”
