QUOTE: Walter Block on “Protectionism”

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Protectionism is a misnomer. The only people protected by tariffs, quotas and trade restrictions are those engaged in uneconomic and wasteful activity. Free trade is the only philosophy compatible with international peace and prosperity. – Walter Block

“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” – Ayn Rand

Too many times, the only one who can stop me is me.

Sadly, when I was young, I liked the habits that today imprison me.

So the past me, stopped the future me.


“This too shall pass”.

QUOTE: Churchill’s pigs

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” – Winston Churchill

I am watching a show about the poor in RIo.

Sad to see so much human capital wasted!

When I think of what I pay in “taxes” — that is nothing more than theft for fat connected cates, it makes me sad.

But then everything thse days seems to make me sad!


QUOTE: Not enough to cover the giant web of obligations

Thursday, March 28, 2013

“What remains are games of musical chairs, Ponzi schemes, frauds, swindles, stonewalls, ruses, ploys, scams, dodges, bluffs, subterfuges, QE martingales, interventions, rehypothecations, pretenses and other modes of evading or disguising reality. The reality is that there is not enough real wealth to go around, certainly not enough to cover the giant web of obligations that masquerades as ‘money.'” – James Howard Kunstler in an essay titled The Cyprus Fiasco Is A Metaphor For The Entire Global Financial System

“Why do you allow these men who are in power to rob you step by step, openly and in secret, of one domain of your rights after another, until one day nothing, nothing at all will be left but a mechanised state system presided over by criminals and drunks?” –  Die Weisse Rose (The White Rose), Resistance Leaflet 3, 1942
