No liberty for the enemies of liberty.

No task is so humble that it does not offer an outlet for individuality.

When I consider the extream Corruption prevalent among all Orders of Men in this old rotten State, and the glorious publick Virtue so predominant in our rising Country, I cannot but apprehend more Mischief than Benefit from a closer Union. I fear they will drag us after them in all the plundering Wars, which their desperate Circumstances, Injustice, and Rapacity, may prompt them to undertake; and their wide-wasting Prodigality and Profusion is a Gulph that will swallow up every Aid we may distress ourselves to afford them. Here Numberless and needless Places, enormous Salaries, Pensions, Perquisites, Bribes, groundless Quarrels, foolish Expeditions, false Accounts or no Accounts, Contracts and Jobbs, devour all Revenue, and produce continual Necessity in the Midst of natural Plenty. I apprehend, therefore, that to unite us intimately will only be to corrupt and poison us also.

Ben Franklin, London, February 1775


A judicious questioning of the obvious may well be a mark of genius.

David Lindley


A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Douglas Adams

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.

Willem de Kooning


Honesty pays, but it don't seem to pay enough to suit a lot of people.

Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings are built upon the ruins of the bowers of paradise.

Thomas Paine, Common Sense

Nature is not fooled by public relations.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

Mark Twain

Good science is mostly about doubt and the disproving of beliefs. As such, it is close to impossible to "prove" anything beyond a shadow of a doubt. Global climate change, being as complicated as it is, with as many variables as it has, is unlikely to be proven to a standard that the non-science-based individual is likely to find acceptable. Science is most often an approximation until some better idea surfaces.

Suffice it to say, the majority of the scientific community feels humans are negatively affecting the climate. That being the case, it is the oddest form of hubris not to take the most conservative tack and try to ameliorate the damage that it appears humans are doing.

global warming

Troposphere, whatever. I told you before I'm not a scientist. That's why I don't want to have to deal with global warming.

Justice Scalia

free speech

Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us.

William O Douglas
