Some nice Regan quotes from Boortz.com

Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose.'- Ronald Reagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' - Ronald Reagan

'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.' - Ronald Reagan

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. Was too strong.'
- Ronald Reagan

'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.' - Ronald Reagan

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.'
- Ronald Reagan

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.'
- Ronald Reagan

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.' - Ronald Reagan

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.' - Ronald Reagan

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.' - Ronald Reagan

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.' - Ronald Reagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'- Ronald Reagan
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
"Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian
beer. Then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the
way, and then to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese
TV. And the most British thing of all? Suspicion of anything foreign"

Lord Taylor of Warwick, during a House of Lords debate on 'Britishness'
All good wishes
As Gary Lloyd said, "When the government’s boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence."

If you have ever lived in England, your thinking would be different. Brits are not anything akin to we Anglos, when it comes to this. In Britain, foreigners are not gently forced to assimilate, like here in the US. During the 60s, during my short stay at Lakenheath, you could see this, if you were observant. At the time, I did not, but looking back, it was there, for all to see. Brits have allowed the Franco-German influence to permeate their way of life, and for the worse.

If England is to retain any semblence of it's heritage, it will have to break away from the EU. And then provide all the foreigners with a Hobson's choice. Otherwise, my English history professor will have been correct, when he ended his course outline "End of England". Only difference is that it will have taken longer than he anticipated. Shock

The headline is enough. Wright wrote that many MI5 and MI6 operatives were convinced that Wilson was a KGB mole, who got into office by technological vote manipulation. in 1974, they saw the takeover of their political system by Marxists and tried to assassinate him. Thatcher was the beneficiary of the rebound against the Marxists, but did not endorse Wright's exposé of the affair. To this day, the stain they left behind is substantial.

I am a man constantly haunted and hounded by the open possibility of nebulous contingency. Therefore:


"ALL THAT WAS ONCE BENEATH YOU SPEAKS TO YOU NOW"



Quoted from advisers to leaders both Western and Eastern, both ancient and contemporary throughout history.

Hopefully after the recent events one generation will be: "Regan? Who??"

Here is a fav from the late Hunter S:

Quote:But with the throttle screwed on, there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right... and that's when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms. You can barely see at a hundred; the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are the wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers. You watch the white line and try to lean with it... howling through a turn to the right, then to the left, and down the long hill to Pacifica... letting off now, watching for cops, but only until the next dark stretch and another few seconds on the edge. The Edge... There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others- the living- are those who pushed their luck as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there. Or maybe it's In. The association of motorcycles with LSD is no accident of publicity. They are both a means to an end, to the place of definitions.

"if you want something you've never had, you need to do something you've never done."

The status quo will never take us anywhere we haven't already been.

"When they took the 4th Amendment, I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs.
When they took the 6th Amendment, I was quiet because I am innocent.
When they took the 2nd Amendment, I was quiet because I don't own a gun.
Now they have taken the 1st Amendment, and I can only be quiet."
