One day an old man walked up to the gates of the White House. The Marine Guard on duty asked him what he wanted there. "I want to see President Kerry." The old man said.
"Sorry, Sir." The Marine said. "John Kerry is not the President." The old man left. The next day the old man returned and said again that he wanted to see President Kerry. Again the Marine told him that John Kerry wasn't the President and the old man left. This went on for three more days, with the old man and the Marine repeating the same conversation.
On the fifth day the Marine said: "Look, Old Man. Every day you come here and ask to see President Kerry and I tell you the same thing! What is it about 'John Kerry is not the President' that you don't understand?"
The old man smiled and said: "Oh, I understand. I just like hearing it."
The Marine stood silent for a minute, then saluted the old man and said: "See you tomorrow, Sir."STILL THE BEST QUOTES EVER!:

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship, and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the Earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!"
"It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have

"We have it in our power to begin the world over again."
From Ralph Peters, New York Post:
"President Bush is an especially appealing target for European scorn, since he's the least European U.S. President since Andrew Jackson. Bush speaks awkwardly, but acts powerfully. The European ideal is a politician who speaks beautifully and does nothing."
"Why Iraq? Because it was doable, while North Korea isn't. Because we bore a special responsibility, due to our bygone support for the Baghdad regime. Because Saddam had launched wars of aggression unmatched by other contemporary dictators. Because he DID seek weapons of mass destruction. Because the situation in Iraq continued to worsen. And because you have to start somewhere.
"We aren't trapped in a quagmire in Iraq. But the European left IS trapped in a quagmire of failure, mendacity and guilt."
From George W. Bush, STILL 43rd President of the United States:

"Isn't that just like a liberal? The chair-warmer describes Bush as a cowboy and Rumsfeld as his gunslinger - but the black chick is a dummy. Maybe even as dumb as Clarence Thomas! Perhaps someday liberals could map out the relative intelligence of various black government officials for us."
"You know, writers in general are notoriously bad verbal tellers of stories. We do much, much better behind a typewriter."
--Rod Serling, creator of Twilight Zone

--Richard Marcinko, Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined."
More From Thomas Sowell:
"If the battle for civilization comes down to the wimps versus the barbarians, the barbarians are going to win."
"Considering how often throughout history even intelligent people have been proved to be wrong, it is amazing that there are still people who are convinced that the only reason anyone could possibly say something different from what they believe is stupidity or dishonesty."
"The fraudulence of the left's concern about poverty is exposed by their utter lack of interest in ways of increasing the nation's wealth. Wealth is the only thing that can cure poverty. The reason there is less poverty today is not because the poor got a bigger slice of the pie but because the whole pie got a lot bigger — no thanks to the left."
"It would be devastating to the egos of the intelligentsia to realize, much less admit, that businesses have done more to reduce poverty than all the intellectuals put together. Ultimately it is only wealth that can reduce poverty and most of the intelligentsia have no interest whatever in finding out what actions and policies increase the national wealth."

--Col. Jack O'Neill, urging Major Samantha Carter to work faster as the asteroid they're on rapidly approaches Earth, Stargate SG-1
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States when men were free."
--Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States
"The civil rights struggle is over, and it has been won. At one time, black Americans did not have the same constitutional protections as whites. Now, we do, because the civil rights struggle is over and won is not the same as saying that there are not major problems for a large segment of the black community. What it does say is that they're not civil rights problems, and to act as if they are leads to a serious misallocation of resources."
--Walter Williams, Economist and Commentator
