Roger Clemens was on trial for lying to Congress. Does anyone see the irony here ?

For the first time, our liberty tree man has me speechless. Todays quotes are VERY hard to answer to. All three quotes just floored me. I just keep trying to remember what is right, and what is wrong.

That's easy Kimo...anything that can be considered a violation of property rights...is wrong. And let's remember our first piece of property in life, is our own body.

Excellent. The Common Man is in the majority -- when he is ready, he will no longer tolerate the dictates of a few monopolists. The question is only WHEN...

I think this is childish philosophy. A child sees all rules of parents, school, etcetera as oppressive until he is able to learn the reason why. Of course children are poor and weak but soon enough learn the reason for "law", I wish I could say the same for y'all!
