Quote of the Day

December 13, 2009

You ever come across raccoons in the outdoor trash can at 11:30 or so at night? As soon as they’re exposed by the beam of the flashlight (by the way, how much CO2 does the beam of a flashlight put into the atmosphere?), they turn on you with fangs and paws and let you know what follows will be a short conversation with very little talking involved.
Currently, climate scientists are raccoons hip-deep in statistical garbage and you should approach them with caution because they are unarmed (with facts) and dangerous.

From the comments in a Daily Telegraph article:

“How is it that when Righties quote Lefties, they have video, audio, and notarized confirmation from the Pope, but when Lefties ‘quote’ Righties, they have Wiki entries contributed by ‘Cobra’?”

Quote of the Day

July 2, 2009

One must admit, though, that socialist dogma is even more effective than ale in causing one “to see the world as the world’s not.” After all, no matter how much alcohol one consumes, one will eventually sober up…

Yup, true words from AuricTech. Suggested by Leslie Bates, who has an interesting, and frighteningly sobering, prediction concerning our Dear Leader and his distaste for actual democracy.

Quote of the Day

April 23, 2009

“…status is not the American Conservative position. Rather, conservatives believe that change for change’s sake is folly. What kind of change? At what cost? For the liberals and progressives, everything was expendable, from tradition to individualism to “outdated” conceptions of freedom. These were all tired dogmas to be burned on the alters of the news age.”

Isn’t the border fence shovel-ready?

Obama and his minions will be blaming President Bush for EVERYTHING ’till their dying breath.

“Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket” — Barack H. Obama

During the campaign, a fellow journalist confided that “I know Obama is a Manchurian candidate, I just can’t figure out what for.” — Michael Goodwin

“There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as “caring” and “sensitive” because he wants to expand the government’s charitable programs is merely saying that he’s willing to try to do good with other people’s money. Well, who isn’t? And a voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he’ll do good with his own money — if a gun is held to his head.” — P.J. O’Rourke

“There’s nothing like a dead body found in a pool of someone else’s blood.” — Leslie Bates

“Wearing a Che shirt in a free nation is as disgusting as wearing a Heinrich Himmler shirt in Tel Aviv.” — Leslie Bates

“The exact same people who are now demanding prison for Libby for not remembering who told him about Plame are the ones who told us it was perfectly plausible for Bill Clinton to forget that Monica Lewinsky repeatedly performed oral sex on him in the Oval Office. Even if chubby Jewish brunettes aren’t your type, be honest: Which of the two events would stand out more in your memory?” — Ann Coulter

“Because of the industrialization of agriculture — using massive amounts of fossil fuel — only 2 percent of Americans work in farming. And yet they produce enough food to feed all 300 million Americans, with plenty left over for export. When are liberals going to break the news to their friends in Darfur that they all have to starve to death to save the planet?” — Ann Coulter

“Gun bans don’t disarm criminals, gun bans attract them.” — Walter Mondale, U.S. Ambassador to Japan, 4/20/94

“If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege.” — Arkansas Supreme Court, 1878

“Communism and socialism is seductive. It promises us that people will contribute according to ability and receive according to needs. Everybody is equal. Everybody has a right to decent housing, decent food and affordable medical care. History should have taught us that when we hear people talk this stuff — watch out!” — Walter Williams

“The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.” — Peter Brimelow, [and others] National Review 02/01/93

“The Constitution is not neutral. It was designed to take the government off the backs of people.” — William O. Douglas

“You can count on a few things in this world. The swallows will return to Capistrano. Salmon will spawn. Canada’s geese will fly south for the winter. And tax cuts will create growth” — Investor’s Business Daily

“Saddam Hussein’s continued life is more of a problem than Osama bin Laden’s,” — former Clinton Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Christian Science Monitor, November 2003

Quote of the Day

January 27, 2009

James Lileks:

I’m off to the Mall to sell razor blades so people can scrape off their “Question Authority” bumper stickers. Just remember: Dissent is still the highest form of patriotism. Except now it will be practiced by the lowest form of people.

This must be part of the “change” they were talking about. Suppression of those who didn’t drink the BHO Kool-Aid(tm).

“Right-thinking people are not supposed to discuss any meteorological or geophysical event — a hurricane, a wildfire, a heat wave, a drought, a flood, a blizzard, a tornado, a lightning strike, an unfamiliar breeze, a strange tingling on the neck — without immediately invoking the climate crisis. It causes earthquakes, plagues and backyard gardening disappointments. Weird fungus on your tomato plants? Classic sign of global warming.” — Joel Achenbach

“Easy money, sudden fortunes, increasingly powerful political machines and blatant corruption transformed much of the nation; and the Senate, as befits a democratic legislative body, accurately represented the nation.” — J.F. Kennedy, “Profiles in Courage”

“America wasn’t founded so that we could all be better. America was founded so we could all be anything we damn well please.” — P.J. O’Rourke

Sunday morning quotes

November 30, 2008

“You socialists only have one rebuttal to the argument that socialism has been tried and failed miserably; it’s the same one an abused wife might hear from the drunken monster that blackened her eye: ‘It’ll be different this time, I swear!'”

Slobodan Milosevic wasn’t even a latent, long-term, hypothetical threat. ” — Ann Coulter
