Reader comments about this quote:
Like "spreading Democracy"? Boy that sure worked out well in Egypt, Iraq and Afghanistan. There's a uniformity there that we can do completely without.

    Well said. Like these 'diversity' programs -- they are uniformity programs in fact. We are naturally diverse -- what the social engineers want is conformity and obedience to authority -- all decisions are to be sent to the 'central scrutinizers' for permission.

    Carlton, (-; There's a uniformity there that THEY can do completely without ;-). As the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land enforces, compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity, all rights deriving from the collective as well as all other unlawful tyranny uniformly, stupid and meanness will continue to increase exponentially. Doing anything one pleases, as it does not infringe on another, is ideal.
