Guns And Weed - Coming Soon To A Theatre Near You


 This is back when grown men presided over the Oval Office. -- Trey Garrison


 I think I've posted this before but I'm still getting laughs from this pic.


"Slow are the steps of freedom, but her feet turn never backward." -- James Russell Lowell (1819-1891) American author and diplomatist

"It's difficult to view the world outside our human context. Staying alive and paying the bills both require our attention squarely fixed on our own business. Our sprawling cities and suburbs are wonderful and frightening tributes to creative self-absorption. In them, we spend our microscheduled days bustling between work and the endless details of our private lives, turning in our moments of rest to the buzzing distractions of television and computers - all accelerating toward some ultimate, unseen fulfillment of convenience and hyperreality. Little encourages us to pause and look around, much less question the end goal of all our busyness. Anything slower than the quick cuts of TV commercials is overwhelmed by our impatience and short attention. Unfortunately, we might be missing something important - to our happiness and to our survival." -- Jason Gardner Source: From the introduction to The Sacred Earth: Writers on Nature & Spirit, edited by Jason Gardner, 1998, New World Library

"Liberty, next to religion has been the motive of good deeds and the common pretext of crime..." -- Lord Acton [John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton] (1834-1902), First Baron Acton of Aldenham Source: Lord Acton, in The History of Freedom in Antiquity (1877)

"The control of the production of wealth is the control of human life itself." -- Hilaire Belloc
(1870-1953) French-born British writer Source: THE SERVILE STATE

"To blindly trust government is to automatically vest it with excessive power. To distrust government is simply to trust humanity - to trust in the ability of average people to peacefully, productively coexist without some official policing their every move. The State is merely another human institution - less creative than Microsoft, less reliable than Federal Express, less responsible than the average farmer husbanding his land, and less prudent than the average citizen spending his own paycheck." -- James Bovard (1956- ) American author, lecturer Source: Freedom in Chains, The Rise of the State and the Demise of the Citizen (St. Martin's Press), 2000 /James.Bovard.Quote.8A0D

"Usurpation, the exercise of power not granted, is not legitimized by repetition." -- Raoul Berger (1901-2000) was an attorney and professor at Harvard University

Come on now. I mean, Hard Work must have killed someone. -- John Eli Shuey
