"You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common, they don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable, if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering."
Doctor Who
British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963

    A GREAT quote! Reminds me of tha O'Donnell broad who says she BELIEVES evolution is a myth. Would it not be better if she did not tell us what she believes but tell us what she knows. People say what they believe when they don't know. We need more statements of FACT and less statements of BELIEF in this old world.

    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers. Most of our recent elections prove this. Actually, most of our elections starting with Lincoln right up till now prove it.

    I wonder how many of the above commentors include themselves among those that cannot face facts... it's always the 'other guy,' right? ;-)

    (-: I like it a lot ;-) Definitive facts (liberty, inalienable rights, personal sovereignty, etc.) are not common with the patrons (rich, stupid or otherwise) un-altering views of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land.

    Common and collective views on facts concerning socialism (communism to fascism, progressivism to neo . . ., etc.) are seemingly non-alterable.

    When Liberty and Freedom are defined, all else must fall in line. 
    For this, violence comes forth, in convulsion through rejection of the truth.

    The Doctor. Being Awesome. Sadly, in the last season we've seen this a little less.Just hope the show keeps its integrity, which seems to be fading away.
