From the book Power in the People by Felix Morley, as linked by Gary Galles at the Ludwig von Mises Institute:
The founders certainly believed, and frequently asserted, that the primary purpose of government is to secure private property.

"Trigger" is newspeak for "We will take your money later, after promising cross-our-hearts that we won't take your money right now."

Those of you of a certain age and/or a Wikipedia addiction will also recall that Trigger was a horse.

So we can therefore conclude that the Democrats want you to believe that they are a horse of a different color. Or something like that.

Sometimes Thoughts of the Day can just get a bit out of control.

The very act of hyphenation (i.e. something-American) strips the very humanity from those doing it, and from those to whom it is done.

I am an American. Period.

Hyphenation Is Racism.

Raising a ruckus at a Congresscritter's town hall meeting is getting a bit like students at a college basketball game storming the court after a big win.

Part of it is real emotion, part of it is "Look, Ma, I'm on TV" and part of it is kind of a fad.

Although personally I'm all for every politician being aggressively yelled at whenever he or she pokes his/her face out in public.  That's what they're for.

I really, really, really don't want to live through a civil war. I really don't.  But if I have to, I will side with the Constitution and those who defend it.
