… it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a parliament or a communist dictatorship … the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
-- Hermann Goering

From Dreams From My Father:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."


"I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."



"There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white."



"It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

~ Barak Obama. More quotes than Hermann Goering there eh Bobby?:)

The liberal bird sits on its pompous perch, safely tucked away in corners and recesses of the nation that still remain at liberty, chirping perfect chords of justice; unaware of the viscious predatory cats that have already devoured freedom in the urban forests. ~ Me

On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does.

One day, while sitting on a combine chopping some grass for our dairy farm, my Uncle said this...

"You know, when it is all said and done, and the coffin goes in the ground, it is the farmer that is the richest man of all."

I do not think he was talking about money.

I spend all day with my wife, and I am here when the kids get on the bus, and when they get home. It is a lot of work, far more then 40 hours a week, but being a farmer has its rewards.
