I'll start. In a country where the sole employer is the State, opposition means death by slow starvation. The old principle: who does not work shall not eat, has been replaced by a new one: who does not obey shall not eat.- Leon Trotsky (1939)from pg. 119 "The Road to Serfdom" by F.A. Hayek

Aside from the host of quotes on this board that criticize our nation, condemn its leaders, attack our government and denounce its policies, and blame our citizens, one post stands out as particularly anti-American. It was posted by "Magic", a citizen of Mississippi: ". . .Mississippi is one of the worst. Filled with racists, bigots, and uneducated idiots. Finishes bottom on every single indicator where states are compared. It is hot, muggy, and full of mosquitos. Now with the Casinos, organized crime is rampant. The state is full of gun toting, Camaro driving, Confederate flag waving dixie whistlers. I have only scratched the surface, it is BAD! Much worse that I could ever describe. Please stay away from Mississippi. Do it for the children." This hatred of one's home, this sort of characterization of a state of our union, is appaling. I don't like "Magic" because of this sort of dreadful talk about one of our states. Again, no suggestions or efforts to improve, just pure bad-mouthing. I don't like this.

I am glad you think so [b][size=6]GOOD FOR YOU[/size=6][/b] People have been saying these things about my home state of Mississippi for 100 years and when it comes from a person from Mississippi it is appalling... [b][size=6]GOOD FOR YOU[/size=6][/b] [fixed spelling error pointed out by IMHO]

IMHO, You are now my favorite person on this board. I think I will move from my windowless shack and live on the streets of Boulder collecting money from generous citizens of your fair city until I have enough for a home. I can only hope that you will show me pity when you pass me on the street. From everything I have heard about Boulder, it must be 1000 times better than any place in MS. I hope you forgive the self degradation pointed out by you. I am an evil man and you are obviously wealthier, healthier, and happier. If you are feeling generous, maybe you could teach me to shoot? I would really like that too. Humbly yours Magic

Great collection of quotes, DarkHelmet! My memory, though, is that this (above repeated) quote was made with full knowledge that the microphones were amplifying the comment. It was meant, I think to be a joke. Doesn't take anything away from the humor, or from the intended praise for RR. I hesitate to make posts like this sometimes. . . don't think that I'm trying to pick on you. Your compilation is a great one, IMHO.
