Sorry, Robert.  We've got a bug in the system that often does not save responses if the page has been open for more than 15 minutes before sending.  So, long responses are usually the ones that get hit.  We are working on it.  Try copying your text before sending, then redo if it does not get saved.  You are not being censored, we value your comments greatly.  Cheers!

Thank you, Mike.  Our site(s) have been banned for years in many places.  I check our domain trustworthiness regularly to make sure we haven't been added to any banned lists.  I can say that there has been a concerted effort over the years to censor sites and pages that promote 'liberty'  it is a trigger word for 'hate speech' because it offends the ruling class and their dependents.  Let's hope that the cause of Liberty does not entirely depend on this site. :-)  Mike if you wouldn't mind sending me an email, I'd like to get more details about the messages you've been getting when trying to connect to the site, maybe figure out how to get 'approved' again.  Cheers.

'Dental caries' is tooth decay due to bacteria, cavities are the result.  The details are correct.

Thanks, Frank.  You are right, the source is incorrect (even though it is declared as a reference in many other places).  The quote is actually from "Great Fortunes from Railroads", 1910, p.183.  The source has been updated.

I hate it when that happens.  :-0  We're still making adjustments to the site's design.  If you have left open the page for more than 30 minutes, your session may have expired.  I have bumped the session time up to 90 minutes now.  For those long posts, copy the message before saving.  It happens to me on other sites, too.  Cheers.

Editor, Liberty Quotes Joe Schmoe, Iowa (8/8/18)

The quotation is often attributed to Dr. Rogers with an incorrect date of 1931. The quotation is part of a longer 1984 sermon in a larger series titled "God’s Way to Health, Wealth and Wisdom" (CDA107); it also appears in Dr. Rogers' 1996 work "Ten Secrets for a Successful Family" stating that "by and large our young people do not know either the importance or the value of honest labor".

Rogers did not originate the quote and did not claim to have originated it. Instead, he was citing almost verbatim a bit of anti-Soviet propaganda that had circulated in many magazines in the early 1960's. The quote appeared before that in the Congressional Record of 1958, where they were appended to the record by congressman Bruce Alger. Alger had borrowed the words from Gerald L. K. Smith, who had written them first in his magazine, The Cross and the Flag. Since the quote was attributed to Rogers in 2009, it has been regularly attributed to him; however, Rogers was essentially quoting Smith at the time.

Hi, John: The new format is displaying all previous responses.  A few of the latest quotes had not been posted before, so your comment was among the first.  We are trying out a new feature in the links to Comments box.  Clicking a link to a recent comment opens the page and scrolls down to the comment.  Scrolling up then shows previous comments and the quote itself.  We are open to further suggestions or comments.  Thank you!

Hi, Mike, I hope you like the new site features. Formatting of text is now possible.  It seems that your post is missing several word separators.  You may have pasted in the text and lost some formatting.  Let me know as this has only occurred with some of your posts.  There is a Reply feature for all posts, so you may reply directly.  I am still working out the occasional 'bugs.'  Cheers.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thanks, Jay.  We've made the correction.  Cheers.

Christian American, this is not a religious quote but a 'usury' quote. Also we sent 3 Bible quotes yesterday condemning usury, not sure why you missed them. I invite you to consider how usury came to be known as an evil in these ancient cultures/religions. Thanks for the laugh about our "PC leaning." :-)

Editor, Liberty Quotes

The source has been updated. The quotation was published by the Mark Twain Association in 1943 from an essay titled 'Official Physic.'

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Tom, read the Source information with the quote. It is not an accurate quotation and is a paraphrase of two actual quotes, which are referenced there. Cheers.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thanks, Kate, the change has been made. Cheers!

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thanks, Terence. This quotation is excerpted from one of Jefferson's drafts of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson wrote 'inalienable' in all of his hand-written drafts; however, in Adams 'rough draft' it was 'unalienable.' Adams was on the committee which supervised the printing of the text ordered by Congress, and it may have been at his suggestion that the change was made. The quote as inscribed on the Jefferson Memorial in the nation’s capital also says 'inalienable' but does not include 'inherent and inalienable' as was in this draft. 'Inalienable' is most correct with Latin roots, unalienable combines English and Latin. While unalienable was in popular use in the 18th century, today, inalienable is the more commonly used form with the same meaning.

Thank you, Andrew, we have made the changes.

Thanks for the reference, Steve. We'll check it out. Cheers.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thank you, Mike, for your very considerate contributions to, well, everyone. Cheers!

Thanks, Mary. I'll add the Harry Browne quotes to the database.

Abby, the source has been updated. Cheers.

Don, we have also been unable to find the source of this quote. We have tagged it 'Attributed' as it is popularly attributed to Truman.

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thank you, Steve. The quote is popularly attributed to Hitler, but most likely a paraphrase. Since Hitler spoke German, searching for the source of this quote would require the actual German. The quote is found in A. E. Samaan's 'From a Race of Masters to a Master Race.' We have put that quote here and tagged the source of this quote accordingly. Thanks again!

Editor, Liberty Quotes

Thanks to those who 'do' think and have pointed out the lack of source of this quote. We're going to tag it as 'questionable' with a source that is 'attributed' until we can find a source. Cheers.
