  • Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.
    "Across all industries and occupations, 70-80 year olds are regarded as unemployable, due to declining cognition, overall frailty, incompetence, and yet, somehow, we have an entire government filled with them making decisions for an entire nation."
    - a tweet I read a while back
    "To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society."
    -Theodore Roosevelt
    In all polities within this Overton Window, "conservative" just means "Liberalism according to which decade I prefer". To be truly Conservative would be best described as Traditionalist or Reactionary
    "What do you want?"

    "I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I'd look up at your lifeless eyes and wave like this. Can you and your associates arrange it for me, Mr. Morden?"

    -Morden and Vir, In the Shadow of Z'ha'dum
    Is that an Orthodox cross I spy with my little eye? Thumbs up!

    No (although my mother technicaly is one, and on her side some of my relatives even are Deacons and Priests), but I have a soft spot for Orthodoxy.

    Ah I see. Well, the Orthodox Church is always here if you decide to join.

    Thank you for the invite.
    Fun fact - I happen to live 6 kilometres from an Orthodox church, not something common in Poland besides a few areas along the border with Belarus.
    "When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they, and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain."

    - Napoleon Bonaparte
    I know not what treason is, if sapping and betraying the liberties of a people be not treason ...
    — Cato The Younger
    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    -Marcus Tullius Cicero
    Flee sloth; for the indolence of the soul is the decay of the body.
    -Cato the Younger
    "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.”
    -Mathew 10:34
    And still, I find it so hard
    To say what I need to say
    But, I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
    Just how I should feel today

    We can have no '50-50' allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.

    I know your joking. But for the people who actually think that, I don't care if these people are Jewish or not. I care that they aren't loyal to the USA. And that's all there is to it. Anyone who doesn't believe me can go pound sand.
    We must also remember what the late, great George Carlin said. "All of what we believe to be the civilized world is just one prolonged power outage away from savagery and barbarism not seen since the dark ages."

    Europe for the Europeans!
    The USA for the Americans! Especially the European ones.
    11 "Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. 12 And when you go into a household, greet it. 13 If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!
    Matthew 10:11-15
