Does It Speak For You?

A Quote That Speaks For Many, Including Myself...
by The Old Hippie Because You Still Aren’t Stopping Them, At Least Not Yet.


“Whenever you think that the Government has done things so extreme that it can’t top itself -- torture, theories of presidential lawbreaking, a six-year war justified by blatantly false pretenses -- it always tops itself.  On top of the massive debt under which the country was already drowning, another $700 billion is now being added in order to save the nation’s richest individuals from the consequences of their own recklessness, allowing many of them not only to remain enriched, but become further enriched, all while basically ensuring that the Government is incapable of spending any money for years, if not longer, on programs designed to improve the lives of the vast, vast majority of its citizens -- the same citizens who are forced to fund this bail-out.  That seems hard to top, but the only thing certain is that they will find a way to do so.”

-- Glenn Greenwald

Also - for a further perspective...
Here is another ‘recent’ quote of significance...

“The national government will maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests.  It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality.  Today Christians stand at the head of our country.  We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit.  We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press — in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of Liberal excess during the past years.”
