Friday Quote – Trench Coxe

Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…

The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.

— From the Pennsylvania Gazette, 1788

Friday Quote – Ron Paul

It’s sad that our republic is in such a state that so many Americans see their freedoms as being dependent on a single Supreme Court justice. Federal judges were never meant to wield the tremendous power that they do in modern America. Our founders would find it inconceivable that a handful or unelected, unaccountable federal judges can decide social policy for the entire nation.

Friday Quote – Frederic Bastiat

IF the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of makind?

Friday Quote – Thomas Sowell

The reason so many people misunderstand so many issues is not that these issues are so complex, but that people do not want a factual or analytical explanation that leaves them emotionally unsatisfied.

Friday Quote – Neil Gaiman

Fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gifts of seeing the world through their eyes. Fiction is a lie that tells us true things, over and over.

Friday Quote – Billy Chapata

Honor the friendships that allow you to pick up from where you last left off, regardless of how long it’s been since you connected. The friendships that survive hiatuses, silences and space, those are the connections that never die.

Friday Quote – Judge Andrew Napolitano

The Second Amendment is not about hunting. It’s about the right to shoot at tyrants if they take over the government.

Friday Quote – Nick Harkaway

And don’t tell me the end justifies the means because it doesn’t. We never reach the end. All we ever get is the means. That’s what we live with.

Friday Quote – Robert Heinlein

The capacity of the human mind for swallowing nonsense and spewing it forth in violent and repressive action has never yet been plumbed.

Friday Quote- John Roderick

World War II has generated more fanfic than anything else, except for Star Trek.
