Thanks, Andy. Of course if I'd Googled it I could have saved you some bother.
Reality is a hallucination caused by alcohol deprivation.

Only Satan can rebuke sin. The righteous don't know enough.

God is not dead. He was merely voted out of office.

You can do anything with anybody if you just save them the trouble of thinking.

No problem. I actually thought it was Sen Fulbright that said it. I also remember the reactions to that statement.
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

We are told we have a humanitarian (and security) emergency at the US-Mexico border. Therefore, in response, we posit a solution that in the best case would take at least 5 years to start having any effect. Infallible logic from impenetrable minds.

Anyone care to guess what the ongoing cost of The Great Wall of Trump will be once people in Mexico discover the fun of plinking cameras, corroding fenceposts, and otherwise pranking the divisions assigned to patrol the border [1]?
