Ahhh yes, the lies that are told to control the peons. One simple issue among zillions, let's hope talk radio is emboldening an otherwise emasculated society of helots, serfs, and slaves.

True Mike. Waffler and Reston need to listen to Mark Levin.

Mark Levin is a fall who pretends to have intellect. As for this quote TA forgets people.

All of life is a risk. Speculation sometimes pays off -- sometimes not. The pinoeering spirit is its own reward, but every now and again it frees one from the yokes of servitude into a newly discovered world. But it never happens without risk -- and thusly, courage.

And the ship that is in port forever is useless. It would be just as well to the rest of the world if it never existed.

If a ship does not sail at will, it is tied to the port of tyranny.
