"I have known a vast quantity of nonsense talked about bad men not looking you in the face. Donīt trust that conventional idea. Dishonesty will stare honesty out of countenance any day in the week, if anything is to be got by it."

Arr it be a be a good o quote as any!

    OK, maybe more often than not, maybe not? The quote's accuracy and implementation has sure worked well for the patrons of the statist theocracy infesting this land.

    Much like Harper and Obama staring directly into the cameras and smiling as they signed away the sovereignty of Canada and the United States this week. They have officially embarked on the creation of the North American Union and a step towards Globalism.

    Give me a break! It's as basic as 123

    Thank you J. Carlton; but the egregious actions of Regan, Mulroney and both Bush Sr. and Jr. far outstrip any recent acts of Mr. Harper. He is only completing the actions that the Triumvirate of Evil (Regan, Mulroney and Thatcher) set in motion thirty years ago. I'm a little surprised that you're against this unification and the ipso facto establishment of the conservative dictatorship of our world. I thought this would be something you would be cheering.
     -- L. Hanson, Edmonton, Canada     
    L Hanson, I would be all for open borders in a society that treats liberty and freedom with respect and harbors a system of Justice. But that isn't what is happening. What we are seeing is yet another step towards a "Global Government" that has control of absolutely everything as its end goal. The notion that it's being brought about (in Canada) by a Conservative government is irrelevant in that all administrations have had their part in it. This I can not abide.
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    L Hanson: PS - Perhaps you are under the impression that I am a Conservative. Not really...I am a Libertarian. And Libertarians are reviled by both the left and the right because we advocate smaller, less intrusive and responsible government. They ALL hate that! LOL
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    L Hanson, I am not Canadian so you will have to explain your example. How is someone that is completing thirty years of egregious actions, obviously expanded more egregious than original, not as bad or worse than those that implemented such? Your comment describes you as one who has not read what J Carlton has been stating here or, one that thinks anything other than communism is a dictatorship.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Mike, I think Hanson is referring to the "Neo-Con" movement. Which to people like us would probably be as vile as the "Progressive" movement...which when you boil it down...are the same movement.

    This quote could be describing a bureaucrat who says "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you".
     -- jim k, Austin,Tx     
    Well-meaning, but misplaced honesty can be just as devastating as out-and-out liars. It's when people can't tell the difference betweeen one and the other that the real harm is done. Liberals are so atuned to bold-faced lying in order to advance their agenda, they don't even understand the concept of honesty. To liberals, everyone lies, it's just natural to them.
