"(...) entertainment businessmen should best remain in their swivel chairs and leave creative work to creative people."

Paul Andrew MacLean

(and often so true!)

That was from the Legend CD, wasn't it?

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

-Thomas Jefferson, Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin (1802)

"What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
- Thomas Jefferson

The words aren't quite correct but the meaning is there ... I used to carry this around in my briefcase for years before the paper finally deteriorated (I'm an accountant!):

"The secret of a good life is fairness and honesty.

If you can fake that, you've got it made!"

- Groucho Marx (of course)

I recall a speech included on the "Elizabeth Taylor In London" album (from 1963) in which she reads the words of William Pitt (the elder) taken from a letter addressed to the British Parliament - 18 Nov 1777, concerning [our] government's continued actions against the upstarts across the ocean. The speech concludes with:
“If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms -- never! never! never!”

In seeking to find the speech on the net, rather than transcribe it from the LP recording, I found someone else had beat me to it:
hosted by someone named Allen L Roland
- a name & site that means nothing to me.

The point being, it is a shame that our present "Majesties" aka Bush & Blair, had not studied our history a little better.

I won't copy the whole speech, suffice to say that its introduction includes the line: "you
CANNOT conquer America"

For those of a similar mind ...

For those of an alternative view, I respect that view and hope that, in the long run, you will be proved right ... I have my doubts.

"They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. In their grey visions they obtain glimpses of eternity, and thrill, in awaking, to find that they have been upon the verge of the great secret. In snatches, they learn something of the wisdom which is of good, and more of the mere knowledge which is of evil."

—Edgar Allan Poe, culled from "Eleonora".
