George Santayana Quote

“To knock a thing down, especially if it is cocked at an arrogant angle, is a deep delight of the blood.”

While this quote is a very abstract notion...It would be very very satisfying to see the American Royalty masquerading as our representative government knocked down a peg or three. It would be nice to see Statesmen with a sense of genuine nobility representing us to the world instead of the other way around.

Those of us who agree are not the problem.

Let us hope that a goodly number of the arrogant royalty in Congress will be knocked down a peg or two on November the 2nd.

I constantly fantasize about knocking the aristocratic pigs in this country on their ass. It's a great pity it's illegal for some reason.

This bit of droll wisdom was never truer than today. I think we'll have some deeply delighted people come this November 12th when Dirty Harry Reid and Nancy (airhead) Pelosi, and Barny (lollipop) Franks come tumbling down and in 2012 when their nibs Mr. and Mrs. Arrogance will be knocked off their pedestal.
