    "And when you trust your television
    What you get is what you got
    Cause when they own the information, oh
    They can bend it all they want."

    Profound Statements

    In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is a congress. – John Adams

    If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed. – Mark Twain

    Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself. – Mark Twain


    I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
    – Winston Churchill

    A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
    – George Bernard Shaw

    A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money.
    – G. Gordon Liddy

    The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity. But not in that order.
    Brian Pickrell
    There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.

    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.
    Keats

    context
    TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?


    The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats
