There is no error so monstrous that it fails to find defenders among the ablest men. Imagine a congress of eminent celebrities such as More, Bacon, Grotious, Pascal, Cromwell, Bossuet, Montesquieu, Jefferson, Napoleon, Pitt, etc. The result would be an Encyclopedia of Error

The purification of politics is an iridescent dream. Government is force.

The safest road to Hell is the gradual one -- the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.

The Western world has lost its civil courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, each government, each political party, and of course in the United Nations.

This study sounds like a load of crap, but not because of its conclusion. I lived there for a long time and I saw the rapidly increasing segregation. No, it is crap because it seems to be a touchy-feely social science study that isn't rigorous, doesn't define its terms, and uses metrics that are made up specifically for the study. The Bay Area of 1970 was less racially segregated than it was in 2010. But I don't care. I will use this to bludgeon any leftist who spouts the nonsense that only enlightened, woke, progressive America has positive race relations. That is total shit, as any drive through San Francisco, Portland, Chicago, New York City, Boston, Seattle, etc will reveal.

You know what part of the country is integrated? The racist South. Funny how that works!

When I was a kid we had a German Shorthaired Pointer that we ran almost every day along a power-line right-of-way that was filled with game. He would cool off on his own in the little creek running through the area, which made it entertaining when he got back into the car.

I'm still trying to get bounced out of that sewer they call twitter, and while I have tried a variety of techniques, absent the obvious stuff like "Learn to code," I haven't hit on something that is obviously protected speech (in a sane world) but will still get me bounced. To be honest, I read it less and less for anything except the occasional chuckle over some monumentally dumb shit pouring out of a Lib's mouth. But I'll get there...I promise! My Twitter Feed
