Political Divisions

"The censor believes that he can hold back the mighty traffic of life with a tin whistle and a raised right hand. For after all, it is life with which he quarrels." -- Heywood Broun

"To freemen, threats are impotent. [Lat., Nulla enim minantis auctoritas apud liberos est.]"
-- Marcus Tullius Cicero

"Political tags -- such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth -- are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire." -- Robert A. Heinlein


"those who want people to be controlled"


* A now-former Rosebud Texas police officer has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on a felony assault conviction for when he was caught on a state police officer’s dashcam choking a 17-year-old boy on the side of the road who was never charged with a crime, apparently just because the officer didn’t like the way he answered a question about his stalled-out car.

* A Sequin Texas police officer has resigned after being indicted for soliciting a girl under the age of 17 for sex via text messages and then attempting to cover up the attempt by deleting the messages.

* A Dallas Texas police officer is on administrative leave while he’s under investigation over a fatal accident where he crashed into a stalled vehicle while allegedly speeding on the way to a non-emergency call without his lights or siren and killed the 69-year-old man who was in the vehicle.


Shaka Zulu is one of the few military commanders from history who finished a war with a bigger army than he had when he started.

"Why should he toil and moil...when...the strong arm of his Uncle will raise and support him?" (Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter)


“Why do you carry a gun?”

The correct response: “I have an obligation to protect my family.”
