"Let’s face it: The former frat boys who populate Wall Street today understand economics about as well as the pinko professors whose courses they snored through.

That’s why betting their entire industry on “subprime” loans to people with no jobs and no collateral made sense to them – and why betting the entire U.S. economy on the likes of Obama makes sense to them now.

These jokers don’t even know what’s in their own self-interest, much less yours. Trusting them with your money is like trusting Bill Clinton to babysit your underage niece."

       --- Mrk Skousen

This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so true …

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.” - Dwight D. Eisenhower.

“It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded, who cry for blood, more vengeance. More desolation.” - William Tecumseh Sherman

“As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.” - George Washington

“I didn’t vote for Mr. Bush, let’s just leave it at that.” - Johnny Cash

Just to be clear (because I know ya fall a lil’ left of center), 18th century definition of ‘liberal’ was much different than today’s use of the word in US politics. By ‘more liberal’ he was referring to ‘less constrained by Government rule’. The ‘government protections’ he refers to is the Constitution.

"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

  • Ben Franklin

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning.

Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?
