Letting The Days Go By

"The Titanic isn't going down...
it's just adjusting to the situation."

Hearing about the Democratic Convention
makes me want to shit a book on how to puke.

"White Is Black!  Hot Is Cold! Bad Is Good"
(oops...we really meant the last one...)

“No one in this world, so far as I know — and I 
have searched the records for years, and employed 
agents to help me — has ever lost money by 
underestimating the intelligence of the great 
masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone 
ever lost public office thereby.” H.L. Mencken

“All progress has resulted from people who took 
unpopular positions.” - Adlai E. Stevenson

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped 
in the flag and carrying a cross.” - Sinclair Lewis

“People never leave a sinking ship until they see the lights of 
another ship approaching.” - Buckminster Fuller

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of 
its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better 
to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral 
busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes 
sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but 
those who torment us for our own good will torment 
us without end, for they do so with the approval of 
their consciences.” - C.S. Lewis

“If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed; if you do 
read the newspaper you are misinformed.” - Mark Twain

“Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measels of mankind. 
Never do anything against conscience — even if the state demands it.” -
 Albert Einstein

“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will 
hate those that speak it.” - George Orwell

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to 
the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous 
and its speaker a raving lunatic.” - Dresden James
