William Randolph Hearst Quote

“Any man who has the brains to think and the nerve to act for the benefit of the people of the country is considered a radical by those who are content with stagnation and willing to endure disaster.”

And if you are that man...Napolitano will be happy to label you a right wing extremist. (soon to be a "subversive")

The people voted for stagnation and disaster last November but seem to be waking up now. Tea Party anyone ?

Ravings of an egotistical, greedy, tyrant. This is the man who turned cannabis into "Marijuana" helped to criminalize it in order to protect his pulp, paper, magazine and newspaper empire. Check into this.

Regardless of who says it the truth is truth and it always stands on its own no matter who says it.

Anon, Its typical of people to go after a person's character when the truth they're faced with doesn't suit them. When logic is not on your side...use slander.

This is true, it's happening now! Pelosi says not a grass roots, but an astro turf uprising! How unamerican to not be excited about ones right to speak out!!!

E Archer, NYC

This quote can be used by anyone on the left or the right to justify any oppression. It's not enough that someone has used their brains, it matters what the actual ideas are! Change, change, change -- just because it is change doesn't mean it is change for the better. (and libertyjack is right)

O how wonderful that depicts Ted Kennedy and the hate mongers who cluster around their covens waiting for their next prey. All those who spew visceral and hatred comments are themselves from cauldron of darkness. I'm not an intolerant person only intolerant against those who are intolerant.
