Comply With Me

"[...]Nowhere do more people meekly acquiesce to more useless inconvenience and needless indignity for less purpose. Wizened seniors strain to untie their shoes; beltless salesmen struggle comically to hold up their pants; 3-year-olds scream while being searched insanely for explosives - when everyone, everyone, knows that none of these people is a threat to anyone.[...]"-Charles Krauthammer
"[...]The American government is no longer acting as guardian of our freedoms; rather they have become our jailers. This Administration's perverted behavior toward its own citizens has been purposely allowed to flourish, all in the name of preserving political correctness in enemy identification.[...]"-Lee DeCovnick

Charlie Rangel 4, Prince Williams 121



Networks Allow a Scant Four Minutes on Rangel Conviction; Devote 120 Minutes to Royal Wedding :
Tuesday's evening news broadcasts and Wednesday's morning shows allowed a scant four and a half minutes of coverage to the conviction of powerful Democrat Charlie Rangel over ethics charges. In comparison, these same programs devoted 121 minutes to exhaustively examining every aspect of the announcement that Prince William is getting married, a disparity of 30 to one. (more)

From Tree to Glacier Hugging

"The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance ... is the illusion of knowledge. -Daniel J. Boorstin
"When I was a young boy, America's elite schools and universities were almost entirely reserved for males. That seems incredible now, in an era when headlines suggest that boys are largely unfit for the classroom. In particular, they can't read."-Thomas Spence, WSJ
"Too many “educators” see teaching not as a responsibility to the students but as an opportunity for themselves — whether to indoctrinate a captive audience with the teacher’s ideology, manipulate them in social experiments, or just do fun things that make teaching easier, whether or not it really educates the child."-Thomas Sowell
