APPETIZERS

The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.
— James Madison, Federalist No. 48

In 2012, sales of adult diapers [in Japan] surpassed sales of baby diapers for the first time.
— from Code Red (Wiley, 2014)
by John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.
— Thomas Sowell, economist, historian, philosopher

The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed—where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.
— Judge Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge,
U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit

INDEPENDENCE

I would never invade the United States. There would be a gun behind every blade of grass.
— Isoroku Yamamoto, commander
of Japanese naval military forces in WWII

When you see that trading is done, not by consent but by compulsion, When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing, When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors, When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you, When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice—you may know that your society is doomed.
— Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged (1957)

Everything that is right or reasonable pleads for separation. The blood of the slain, the weeping voice of nature cries, ’tis time to part.
— Thomas Paine, Common Sense (Jan. 9, 1776)

Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you’re doomed.
— Ray Bradbury

IMAGINE THERE’S NO FDA

Imagine there’s no FDA
It’s easy if you try
No more illegal rules and regulations
No more they decide if you live or die
Imagine there’s no one there
Let the whole world declare
It’s up to you
To decide what you do
They’ve gone away
Imagine being free today.
