Did You Hear What They Said? New Year's Edition

Happy New Year, True Believers!

Yes, I know 2006 has already begun, but around here, it gets BUSY right after Christmas!

Life Happens.

Now that things have momentarily settled down, let's ring in the New Year right with another edition of:

Remember, it's not a hit-piece. . .they ACTUALLY SAID IT!!!


AMERICAN CULTURE

"Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... [W]e have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." —Theodore Roosevelt

"America is, essentially, a conservative nation on most issues. Liberalism is an attempt to change the nation's culture more than an attempt to accurately represent it." —Mac Johnson

"Congress can no more repeal the law of supply and demand than physicists can repeal the law of gravity. If you restrict the profits you can make for something, you'll get less of that something. If you restrict prices, you'll get less conservation." —Jerry Taylor

"The States can best govern our home concerns and the generalgovernment our foreign ones. I wish, therefore...never to seeall offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawnfrom the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold at market."
-- Thomas Jefferson (letter to Judge William Johnson, 12 June 1823)


"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened." -- Norman Thomas, six-time Socialist Party presidential candidate and one of the founders of the ACLU

IRAQ

"In recent weeks most Democrats seem to have concluded that the war effort is a sinking ship, the American people have already jumped overboard, and if Democrat politicians follow them off the side, the people will reward them by putting them in charge of the life rafts." —James Taranto

"American leftists want 'peace,' without realizing that peace is a byproduct of defeating evil. The left also wants to use the war for partisan political gain and will seek to deprive President Bush of any credit for victory because it could benefit him politically. How sick is that?" —Cal Thomas

"We cannot win this militarily. Our tactics themselves keep us from winning,"--Rep. John Murtha

"It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge he'll be commander-in-chief for three more years. We undermine the president's credibility at our nation's peril."--Sen. Joe Lieberman

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it." —Thomas Paine

"Nancy Pelosi said Democrats will produce an issue agenda for the 2006 elections but it will not include a position on Iraq…"--The Washington Post (12/16/05)

HOWARD DEAN

''The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong,"--Howard Dean

"Dean's take on Iraq makes even less sense than the scream in Iowa: Both are uninformed and unhelpful."--Rep. Jim Marshall (D-GA)

"I think Howard Dean...represents himself when he speaks. He does not represent me."--Rep.Ellen Tauscher (D-CA)

ABORTION

"I do think abortion is murder—of a very special and necessary sort. What else would one call the deliberate stilling of a life? And no physician involved with the procedure ever kids himself about that...legalistic distinctions among 'homicide,' 'justified homicide,' 'self-defense,' and 'murder' appear to me a semantic game. What difference does it make what we call it? Those who do it and those who witness its doing know that abortion is the stilling of a life."-- Dr. Magda Denes, abortion advocate, clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst, "Performing Abortions," Commentary Magazine 10/1976

ECONOMY

"The prosperity of commerce is now perceived and acknowledged byall enlightened statesmen to be the most useful as well as themost productive source of national wealth, and has accordinglybecome a primary object of its political cares."
-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 12, 27 November 1787)


"Economic ignorance, misconceptions and superstition drive us toward totalitarianism because they make us more willing to hand over greater control of our lives to politicians."--Walter Williams

"For tax reform to galvanize the voters and to overcome the special interests, the plan needs to be pure, simple and revolutionary." —Dick Armey

And now for our MULTIPLE CHOICE Question:

This is from Thursday, March 20, 2003

Who issued the following statement in response to the commencement of military strikes in Iraq:

“It appears that with the deadline for exile come and gone, Saddam Hussein has chosen to make military force the ultimate weapons inspections enforcement mechanism. If so, the only exit strategy is victory, this is our common mission and the world’s cause. We're in this together."


A) George W. Bush
B) Tony Blair
C) John Kerry
D) Hillary Clinton


Scroll down for the answer (no cheating!!)

More great stuff. Welcome back. :)

Here's some more great stuff that "they" said (President Bush Lies Like a Cheap Rug edition):

The following from various Presidential speeches and White House Fact Sheets, all verifiable through various searches and official government sites...


April 19, 2004:
You see, what that meant is if you got a wire tap by court order -- and, by the way, everything you hear about requires court order, requires there to be permission from a FISA court, for example.


April 20, 2004:
Secondly, there are such things as roving wiretaps. Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so.


June 9, 2005:
These wiretaps must be approved by a judge, and they have been used for years to catch drug dealers and other criminals. Yet, before the Patriot Act, agents investigating terrorists had to get a separate authorization for each phone they wanted to tap.


July 20, 2005:
Law enforcement officers need a federal judge's permission to wiretap a foreign terrorist's phone, or to track his calls, or to search his property.


July 20, 2005:
Law enforcement officers must seek a federal judge's permission to wiretap a foreign terrorist's phone, track his calls, or search his property. These strict standards are fully consistent with the Constitution.


Were these definitive lies, or was the Preznit just foolin'... inquiring minds want to know...

Thanks again to Ron for stopping by with the encouraging words and to van.mojo for the humorous graffiti.

If you thought what van.mojo wrote was humorous, then you've got one exceedingly damaged sense of humor.

Either that, or you're being disingenuous again.

Now, you're gone from disingenuousness to outright lying. Mighty Christian of you there, Robb.

Stop by anytime, s9, and be sure to bring proof.

We've already established in another thread that you think execution on the grounds of treason is the appropriate treatment for every member of a certain group to which I demonstrably belong. And now, you are taking the interesting position that you "hope all is well" with me and mine.

You'll forgive me, I hope, for holding onto the nagging doubt that you might be a Quisling. Yes, I'm afraid, Robb, that you have burned out any possibility of me ever trusting you after that.

No, I don't work at Quisnos'.

I hear they have good sandwiches, though.

Thanks for stopping by.
