QUOTE: Sowell “betters”

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their “betters.”

— Thomas Sowell “Knowledge and Decisions” 1980

QUOTE: An un Happy Anniversary

Monday, December 19, 2011

“He that outlives a wife whom he has long loved, sees himself disjoined from the only mind that has the same hopes, and fears, and interest; from the only companion with whom he has shared much good and evil; and with whom he could set his mind at liberty, to retrace the past or anticipate the future. The continuity of being is lacerated; the settled course of sentiment and action is stopped; and life stands suspended and motionless.” — Samuel Johnson (1709-84), English author

Happy Anniversary, my love.

QUOTE: … the tax would be paid by the cows

Quotation of the Day…
by DON BOUDREAUX on AUGUST 16, 2011
in SEEN AND UNSEEN, TAXES

*** begin quote ***

… is from EconLog’s David Henderson who recalls how the Herbert Stein described the failure to understand that taxes on corporations are taxes on people:

“I remember that in addressing the issue in the 1980s, the late Herb Stein said that it’s as if people think that if the government imposed a tax on cows, the tax would be paid by the cows.”

*** end quote ***

This reaffirms my RANT about the fact that a “corporation” is a fiction for a mob of real people. WHICH does nothing but hide the taxes in costs passed along to REAL people.

Argh!

QUOTE: “… simply because it is right.”

Saturday, August 6, 2011

“Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it political? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular – but one must take it simply because it is right.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

*** begin quote ***

So, the next time someone talks about some large group of collective people as “we” or take credit for events they never had anything to do with, be like Doug Stanhope and tell them, maybe “we” should just shut the f*#k up.

*** end quote ***

So there ain’t no “we”!

Like the old Lone Ranger joke, “what u mean we kimosabe”!

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? … … …” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn
