GIVE TIL IT HURTS!

Trickles

You suspect that your wife is having an affair so you start looking for evidence. You find it, so you accuse her. She denies it so you show her a piece of evidence. She at first denies that it’s real, then accuses you of spying on her, then explains it away, then admits that, yes, she was at a bar with her handsome coworker when she had told you that she had to work overtime, but they finished the project early and went to celebrate before going home and that’s all there was and anyway he’s married.

You show her the next bit of evidence and she DARVOs again before admitting that, yes, they went to a hotel but that was only because he was too drunk to drive so she brought him there and that’s all that happened.

You show her the next bit of evidence… The truth is admitted only in trickles.

Or take another scenario: A government agency has been accused of violating not only the law but the Constitution and the ordinary expectations of decent treatment for honest citizens. The department spokesman denies the accusation. The next day, after proof of, say, warrantless surveillance having been conducted has been revealed on the morning talk shows, the spokesman acknowledges that it appears that a person may have been investigated without all the paperwork being in order. The next day, he admits that the problem may go further than first realized. And so on, with the admissions never, ever going beyond what’s been publicly demonstrated and usually not going even that far.

Or say a politician has been caught taking money from an unregistered foreign agent. Deny deny deny, well, yes, she had hired my consulting services and it was all aboveboard and I just haven’t gotten around to writing the invoice yet, deny deny, I regret that my actions gave the appearance. Once again, no admission going further than what the evidence proves has happened and counter-accusations fly just as thick as the explanations and the non-apologies.

There may be a reason that most men don’t trust women, bureaucrats, or politicians.

Well, I don’t trust most men either. They are uniformly as bad as the women, and every bureaucrat or politician is one or the other.

I’m just not a very nice person these days…
Hitler was a piker in comparison.

Well at least he did not call you LITERALLY STALIN!

Barry

Hitler I can compete with, Stalin no 🙂

MarkMatis

But Mousey Tongue did that with the help of the Soviet Union!

Barry

Ha, another good one!

Heh, now that’s a poster I like!

I truly hope there is a hell.

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
