one of my "friends" on there has that quote and I replied with this...he was not a human being, he was a cockroach that was finally stomped out after ten years. if anything, we gave him mercy by just throwing his worthless carcass into the ocean and not bringing him back here and spitting on him like he was Mussolini.

“One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure—and in some cases I have—that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.”

We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

Great danger lies in the notion that we can reason with evil.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile — hoping it will eat him last.

We all dream of a world of sunshine, happiness, and peace. The problem is...half of people think it sounds like a wonderful place to live, the other half think it sounds like a wonderful place to pillage.



Some of my present favorites.

To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.

My wife's cousin utter this bullshit last night on her FB wall:

I do not celebrate death. Death does not bring peace. Murder does not make history...diplomacy does...and i will not celebrate until diplomacy is made.


It went quickly downhill from there. She is now no longer welcomed at said cousin's house and was also unfriended by the cousin's mom (her aunt). Fuck 'em. Two less idiots I have to deal with cordially at future family gatherings.

Meh. I'm a First World War history buff, particularly interested in the Battle of Verdun. Read about the taking of Fort de Vaux. It's quite an awe-inspiring tale of hardship and courage. My heritage is half French but, while I'm known to throw out the "surrender monkey" tag at today's crop of Frogs, they weren't always neutered.
