I remember when Obama first became President, the Atheist Experience made some kind of stupid remark about how Obama very well could be the first atheist president....yet he is just as religious as any other president we've had in the history of this country.

I think the guy in the video I posted had it right when he said that the reason people bring this up for Ron Paul is that the left liberals who would have voted for him need an excuse not to.

I suspect that Obama is probably MORE religious (at least in public) than many of the early Presidents.  Those who were explicitly Deist were likely a great deal less religious than any President in the last 35 years.

A couple of my own.

"New is to Labour as National is to Socialism" - bumper sticker, seen for sale in the UK in 2005

"During the course of a long and interesting life, a man must be prepared to abandon his luggage more than once." - supposedly Chinese

Granted there is some fail in that he confuses Evolution as a forward process by which people get better or something like that, overall, I'd call this a fav.

"Capitalism tries for a delicate balance: It attempts to work things out so that everyone gets just enough stuff to keep them from getting violent and trying to take other people’s stuff."   George Carlin.  Makes sense when you think about it, in that odd I have been awake for almost 50 hours sense.

Just because he did terrible things doesn't mean he can not say something that is fairly accurate.
"Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship. ...voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."  Herman Goering at the Nuremberg Trials.

As I said in the comments to said video, it deserves a standing ovation.

As John Stossel pointed out, if women get paid less for doing the exact same work, why would anyone ever hire a man?
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

A quote from this lecture:


Quote
The idea that democracy trumps liberty in the Constitution is completely off base. The Constitution doesn't exist to empower majorities. Majorities don't need to be empowered, they're already the majority!

"@eagleeye1975 The suffering is going to happen regardless. People have planned their lives around government handouts and they're going to pay the price for it no matter who gets elected. If anything good can come out of it, it has to be the exposure of the state. For that to happen, the state's failure must be absolute. There must be no doubt what the cause of the suffering was. Only then can people have closure and move on. We can't afford to have this myth go on anymore." --Lord T Hawkeye here:  http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?threaded=1&v=DTZvmoPiMss

To be fair, plenty of people who do that do so because the state has taken over 60% of their income and left them with little to nothing to show for it.  But still, Hawkeye's point still stands firm.

Someone posted a link to buy the DVD of Atlas Shrugged on the LPF Facebook group, somebody replied

The movie was horrible. The book serves a purpose though...I can't get more than 3 pages without falling into a coma.

This entire video:


And especially:

"If a progressive is for anything, a progressive has got to be for telling the truth about foreign policy, stopping the killing overseas, and not throwing hundreds of thousands of your fellow Americans into cages! Isn't that at least what you guys stand for? Then for heaven's sake, get off your high horse and join us."

One of the few videos where Edward isn't playing a character and gets down to some serious business.

I'd say something like, "Maybe this will silence the so called truthers," but we know that will completely ignore this anyway.

It's been awhile since Pat Condell made a video I agree with 100%:

Some of the comments in that vid are abysmal though.
