The Only Thing Necessary For Evil To Triumph
Is For Good Men To Do Nothing
|"- The woman who lost her son in Iraq was a very sympathetic person. Who doesn't feel for a mother who has lost her son? I cannot be the only person who caught this, but I think others have and are afraid to mention it for fear of seeming insensitive. (I myself have wavered over writing this, and I only get 150 hits a day.) The woman who lost her son said that when she was told, "she dropped the phone." I thought I heard that wrong, but a moment later she said she was all alone and had "no one to hold her up." I was outraged. The United States military informs next of kin directly, without exception, no matter where they are. For example, they went deep into the mountains in Mexico to inform a lost soldier's mother directly. I am not calling the woman a liar, but I am sure that Moore intended to leave the impression that our military is completely insensitive."|

|"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability"|
|"We can't go against these organizations as they could strongly boycott the film in Lebanon and Syria"|
|"The book, which weighs in at more than 950 pages, is sloppy, self-indulgent and often eye-crossingly dull Â the sound of one man prattling away, not for the reader, but for himself and some distant recording angel of history.
My Life reads like a messy pastiche of everything that Mr. Clinton ever remembered and wanted to set down in print; he even describes the time he got up at 4 a.m. to watch the inaugural ceremonies for Nigeria's new president on TV. There are endless litanies of meals eaten, speeches delivered, voters greeted and turkeys pardoned."
|"He didn't ask my permission. That's not his novel, that's not his title, so he shouldn't have done it."|
|"That thud you heard Wednesday came from the White House. The reason was that the 9/11 commission reported that there was never any link between Iraq and al-Qaida or between Saddam Hussein and the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001"|
|"That link was, in fact, one of the main selling points in President Bush's pitch to invade Iraq in the first place."|
|"No doubt, Saddam was a tyrant and a mass murderer, but those were not the main reasons given for the invasion. It is doubtful that the American public would have approved the invasion based solely on removing Saddam because he was a bad guy."|
|"It was the threat of weapons of mass destruction and the possible connection with the terrorist of 9/11 - although 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia - that rallied the support of most America for the invasion.
There have been no WMD's found yet and now the 9/11 connection has been debunked."
|"The attempt to tie 9/11 to Saddam was a mistake."|
|"It's time to tell the truth. The American people can handle it."|
In 1991, one of the reasons President George H. W. Bush committed United States troops to the Persian Gulf War was to
"(1) maintain the flow of trade through the Suez Canal
"(2) fulfill military obligations as a member of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
"(3) contain the spread of communism in the Middle East
"(4) assure the flow of Middle East oil to the United States and its allies"
A major criticism of the electoral college system has been that
"(1) party loyalty is weakened after a presidential election
"(2) electors frequently fail to vote for a candidate
"(3) members of the electoral college are appointed for life terms
"(4) a president may be elected without receiving the majority of the popular vote"
|"For me, I like speed. I like the thrill of it. But the jump also sets an example for older people, here and abroad, that just because you're 80 years old, it doesn't mean you're out of it."|

GOOD RIDDANCE, GIPPER ...
MORE PROOF ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG"
|"Wisps of distant memories,
Are dancing in my soul;
The sweetness and the sadness,
Will follow wherever I go.
For I will take you with me,
My heart will hold you near;
While wisps of distant memories,
Will mingle with my tears.
Arms that held me with such strength,
Will hold me still, at night;
In dreams of you, my comfort comes,
Until the morning light.
Then in the dawn of each new day,
I'll look there for your face;
In wisps of distant memories,
Time never can erase.
I'll see you in the evening,
In the setting of the day;
Your memory will hold me near,
You'll never be far away.
When I am standing on the shore,
And waves come crashing in;
I will hear your voice as it whispers,
Upon the ocean wind.
Deep within my shattered heart,
Amid the bittersweet pain;
In wisps of distant memories,
Your love will still remain.
Until I take my final breath..."

|"You'd be amazed at the number of active duty personnel who are coming up at events around the country, greeting me in ropelines or coming to rallies and telling me how important it is for us to stand up and fight for those who are not able to speak out for themselves right now for obvious reasons."|
