Heh!  Yeah, fits right along side of the MARK TWAIN quote:

 

"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."

" Congress seems drugged and inert most of the time.

Even when the problems it ignores build up to crisis and erupt in Strikes, Riots and Demonstrations; it has not moved.

Its idea of meeting a problem is to hold hearings, or, in extreme cases, to appoint a commission. "

Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States

 

Lincoln never met anyone (Hitler) that successfully lied for 12 years.

 

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed....Adolf Hitler

Day 173




" A Nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive Treason from within.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable,...

For the Traitor appears not a Traitor;...

He rots the Soul of a Nation, he works secretly and unkown in the night...

He infects the body politic so that it can no longer exist.

A murderer is less to fear. "

"The problem with the  man now holding the office is that he thinks he's the conscience of his constituents,and NOT their duly elected public servant."

 

Profound words in a speech by Ray Lafata, a man running for the office of Mayor in my hometown.

 

They kinda FIT these days somewhere, don't they?
