The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
- Edmund Burke 1795 -

"I have come here not in anger or to anger, but "to assert my right to think for myself, to refuse to have my ideas assigned to me as though I was an intellectual slave because I'm black.

"I've come to state that I'm a man, free to think for myself and do as I please. I've come to assert that I am a judge, and I will not be consigned the unquestioned opinions of others.

"But even more than that, I have come to say: Isn't it time to move on? Isn't it time to realize that being angry with me solves no problems? Isn't it time to acknowledge that the problems of race have defied simple solutions, and that not one of us, not a single one of us, can lay claim to the solution? Isn't it time that we respect ourselves and each other as we have demanded respect from others?"

facts can only be disseminated among the people.

The price of Freedom is eternal vigilance

Ultimately, it is more important that
the United States of America should survive in freedom
than that the United Nations should survive at all.

Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA -
ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the state.

The Cowardly Meek
Mourn not for the dead
Who in the soft earth lie,
Dust to dust, as will you and I,
But mourn for the cowardly meek
Who see the wrongs of rulers, yet dare not speak.

If you are mean to your family and nice to your friends,
you are only fooling your friends.

You judge people by their private life, not their public life.

The Enemy Of All Free Men
I am your enemy, your nightmare and your destruction.
I am more powerful than the combined militaries of the world.
I have destroyed more men than all the wars of all nations combined.
I massacre millions of people each and every generation.
I have wrecked more homes than all other causes known to you.
I cause the downfall of the greatest civilizations in history.
I spare no one.
My victims are rich and poor, young and old, strong and weak.
I do not respect color nor creed.
Children shall know me to their eternal sorrow.
I cast my shadow over every thought of man.
I hide in unseen places and I go about my work silently.
You have been warned of my presence, but you do not listen.
I never sleep and I am everywhere you are.
You can not hide.
Illness, revulsion, disease and death follow me and are my friends.
I will give you nothing.
I will take everything you have and then seek more.
I will cause you to turn away from all you once believed in
I will blind your eyes to the sins of your elected leaders
I go where my master orders.
The Prince of Darkness alone sends me into your life.
Once allowed inside, seldom am I asked to leave.
America, won't you please allow me to enter and give me rest.
I will remove all your worries and concerns.
I will take away any concern for individual responsibility.
I will bring you bliss.
I am your friend.
I am Apathy.

You got to stand for something or you will fall for anything!

Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.

We must deal with the world as we find it, not as we would like it to be.
