“The Earth is degenerating today. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer obey their parents, every man wants to write a book, and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching.”
— From a tablet found in Assyria, circa 2800 BC
“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”
— Socrates, circa 380 BC
“Feminism is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands.” — G.K. Chesterton
Let’s hear it for the HR Department…
This one’s for all those institutions (government and corporations) who just have to know what you’re doing all the time:
“It’s not that I have something to hide. I have nothing I want you to see.” — Anon
So FOAD, the lot of you.
From Walter Williams:
“Knowing who owns what weapons is the first step to confiscation.”
I don’t think I have to caution any of my Readers about this, but anyway: if ever some government apparatchik wants to register guns — any kind of guns — resist, refuse to comply, make a noise about it.
I should point out that back in the police state known as Apartheid South Africa, all guns had to be registered to owners, who were themselves registered as such.
I had five guns that the Gummint knew nothing about. In fact, now that I think back, I had more un-registered guns than registered ones. If it was possible under that government, it should be easy-peasy Over Here.
Do ye the same, O My Readers.
About Hillary Bitch Clinton’s new job:
This job is mostly symbolic and won’t require the caftan-wearing granny to do actual work. It’s mainly showing up to events and collecting paychecks, a skill she has honed over many years.
It made me chuckle.
Once again, the QOTD comes from Diplomad:
For the coming year? What do I really want? I want revenge.
I know that’s not very Christmassy and all, but then I am an Old Testament sort of guy who wants to see my enemies smitten by a vengeful God. I wish disaster upon the world’s oldest political party, the Democrat party; at a minimum, I want to see the Dem Party suffer the fate of British Labour for what it has done to America and the West. That clown show long ago ceased to be even mildly amusing.
We got very lucky in 2016: Donald Trump provided us a life boat to get away from the Democratic Titanic. We need to take advantage of that to the full. GOP: And, please, no more Romneys or Ryans! No more me-too GOP.
My thoughts, exactly.
