I’m  just going to leave you with a few quotes you can think about:

“Better to die on one’s feet than live on one’s knees.”  Jean-Paul Sartre

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”  Abraham Lincoln (this applies to all perps)

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Ben Franklin

“Freedom lies in being bold.”  Robert Frost

“Better to die fighting for freedom than to be a prisoner all the days of your life” Bob Marley

“If  freedom is short of weapons, we must compensate with willpower.”  Adolph Hitler

“Don’t interfere with the Constitution.  That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” Abe Lincoln

“Secrecy begets tyranny.”  Robert A. Heinlein (and the government has a lot of secrets)

“Freedom is never given; it is won.” A.Philip Randolph

“The state can’t give you freedom, and the state can’t take it away. You’re born with it, like your eyes, like your ears.  Freedom is something you assume, then you wait for someone to try to take it away. The degree to which you resist is the degree to which you are free.” Utah Phillips (I guess
I’m free. I resist a lot.)

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” John F. Kennedy

“Freedom’s  just another word for nothing left to lose.”  Kris Kristofferson

“The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are:  a subtle kind of murder.”   Jim Morrison (This is here for one of my readers. I hope she/he gets the hint)

“I tried to contain myself, but I escaped.”  Paul Paulsen (I can say this applies to me. I did escape for a while, and look at me now.)

Well, that’s enough quotes for today. I don’t want to bore you to death.  Just think about the above quotes;  all quotes stated by very smart people.

Gang Stalking – Off Topic – PostaDay 2011 – Assemble your dream guest…

Think of all the famous, or infamous, people living or dead, and pick six to share a fine meal with. Who do you pick? What do you expect to happen?

There are three people who I’ve always admired. They’re all dead, of course. Maybe if they were alive, I would not admire them as much. The three are:  Thomas Jefferson; Benjamin Franklin; Leonardo da Vinci. Then I need another three to share my fine meal.

There are so many people I admire, but choose three  I must.  There are no rock stars that interest me.  Most politicians today are only interested in getting re-elected and have no guts.  I would like Oprah to be at my dinner.   Look  what she’s done with her life.  I could learn a lot from her.  And she’s rich. She could give me a few hints on becoming rich, and she’s met everyone.   Who else?  Abraham Lincoln.  I’ve always admired Lincoln.  I’d definitely want him at my meal. I’d like to hear what his opinions are about today’s government.  One more.   Martin Luther King, the civil rights leader.  He had so much courage.  I’d like to hear the truth about his death.   And that’s my dinner list.

Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and da Vinci are on my dinner list because all of them are  brilliant.  They were scientists, writers, architects,  and  discussing  anything  with them would thrill me no end.

I expect the discussions  with all the above to be fascinating.   None of them is a shrinking violent and opinions would be flying right and left.
