Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
“The problems of taxation and government spending are not problems of representation or lack thereof. They’re problems which inevitably accompany the exercise of coercive power. Until our “Tea Party” participants understand that, they limit themselves to pruning branches on the rotten tree which they’d be better off chopping down entirely.”
Thomas L. Knapp

“While NATO provides Europe with a security blanket, it provides America with what she cannot live without: a mission, a cause, a meaning to life.”
Pat Buchanan

“I am all too afraid that a historian, a hundred years from now, will footnote America as a historical curiosity where people once enjoyed private property rights and limited government but it all returned to mankind's normal state of affairs -- arbitrary abuse and control by the powerful elite.”
Walter Williams

"Nothing short of total repudiation of our entrenched systems can rescue America, We are under the control of a two-headed, one party political system. Wall Street controls our financial lives; the media manipulates our minds. These systems cannot be changed from within. There is no alternative. Without a revolution, these institutions will bankrupt the country, keep fighting failed wars, start new ones, and hold us in perpetual intellectual subjugation."
Gerald Celente

“No doubt the majority of Americans didn’t want to go to war against the British in 1776. But would anyone say now that it was the wrong thing to do? No doubt the majority of Americans didn’t want a civil war. Both those wars were, at their core, about state’s rights. About oppressive governments trying to overreach their authority and impose unlawful mandates on the states. It was about their freedom to do what they wish with their lives.
I think we have met the enemy and it is us. We’re a bunch of fast food nourished, MTV anesthetized, shopping mall, plug-in-drug (aka television) addicts who will do anything to preserve that way of life at least until we die.
After that who cares? We’re a clinically obese, socially disconnected, politically inept and intellectually bankrupt nation of douche bags who deserve everything they get.”
Don Cooper

“You might think that after a century of tyranny, total war, genocide, and mass murder, not to mention organized robbery through taxation, inflation, debauched currencies, and redistribution, all of which have generated moral corruption and social decay- well, a little skepticism toward the modern state itself is long overdue. But the news media still persist in the faith that government is the natural instrument for the betterment of the human condition. If you believe that, you can believe that a tiger can be taught to pull a plow.”
Joe Sobran
“The best government is a benevolent tyranny tempered by an occasional assassination.”

From the Darkness:
"Let me be clear: we monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States," Napolitano said in a statement. "We don't have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown, and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence."
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano defending the fascist, "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” report.

"In both magnitude and probability, climate change is an enormous problem." EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson
