Daniel, thank ypou for the Eisenhower quote! It resonates with me perfectly!

Comment by Loren Miller on July 29, 2017 at 7:08pm

I have to wonder how dear Donnie would react to Eisenhower's quote, considering how little he knows about the military by comparison with DDE's expertise.  It would be amusing to hear how much more Orange Julius would allege to know than Ike did, but then, he must like the taste of his tootsies.  They wind up in his mouth so often!

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."

~Dwight D. Eisenhower, speech, American Society of Newspaper Editors, 16 April 1953

Loren, excellent quote. Thanks for introducing me to John de Lancie, Reason Rally 2016.

Let the children know the facts: that “In the beginning” is just one of hundreds of origin stories, that humans through the ages wrote these stories to answer as best they could the mysteries of life, that these stories are not literal, that the bible is not a science book, that the ancient storytellers used the best information they had, but today we know better.
-- John de Lancie, Reason Rally 2016

A great quote (IMHO) from the speech which I thought was the highlight of last year's rally.

"No system is a pure partnership or domination system. It is always a matter of degree, of where it is situated on the domination-partnership continuum."

Quite fitting here in the U.S. The major parties being the wolves and the citizenry being the lamb.

" Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch "

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities

If God has made us in his image, we have returned him the favor.

When we hear news, we should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation.
