Reader comments about this quote:
There really is a need for a national department of education for those desiring a democratic oligarchy to complete its dumbing down of America. When there is no more knowledge of freedom and liberty. the meaning of words being changed and the concepts lost, those of a slave heart, and socialist mind set will be in bliss until fiscal laws and wars overcome them. It's almost impossible to educate the pridefully ignorant. "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." (Samuel Adams)

    Apparently von Metternich's ratio of the moral justification for raping a women or killing a child is higher than 10,000,000:1. The Hutu were around seven million to the Tutsi's approximate two and a half million... Nah, but we should really ignore history anyway, the historical carnage that comes through majority rule without exception, and create an arbitrary number to Democratically justify immoral acts. Thanks to the concept of "wikiality," we can think ANYthing we want, and if enough people believe us, then we're justifiably right-- Democracy of knowledge!! We can create our own realities, regardless of the facts--just so long as the majority agrees with us!!

    The truth is the truth -- whether we know it or not. 10 million votes cannot change one true fact.

    Some people’s idiotic belief in man made global warming is a perfect example. Ethanol made out of corn is another.
