(-: makes me smile :-) A question: will moderation bring back freedom, liberty, or individual sovereign rights in face of such a despotic occupying statist theocracy as now infests this land ?

    Very witty. We must not always be so moderate, especially in the defense of freedom.

    I'd say moderation in most things, especially at Thanksgiving when you have an urge to eat that second piece of pecan pie.

    Well, if moderation is moderated, won't that lead to increasing the amount of thing that is being moderated? And if there is moderation in excess, will that be absence or uncontrollable use of a resource? 
    This quote deserves deeper context.
