"No pecuniary consideration is more urgent, than the regular redemption and discharge of the public debt: on none can delay be more injurious, or an economy of time more valuable." —George Washington

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." —Richard Henry Lee

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." —Marcus Tullius Cicero

"More to the heart of most Americans' concerns, how can a nation fighting a war on terror NOT seal its borders?" —Kathleen Parker

"Because we do not communicate to our immigrants, legal and illegal, that they have joined something special, some of them, understandably, get the impression they've joined not a great enterprise but a big box store. A big box store on the highway where you can get anything cheap. It's a good place. But it has no legends, no meaning, and it imparts no spirit." —Peggy Noonan

"What is a moderate interpretation of [the Constitution]? Halfway between what it says and halfway between what you want it to say?" —Justice Antonin Scalia

"[T]he more left one goes, the more one is likely to encounter people who substitute 'social justice' for personal morality." —Dennis Prager

"The line here is 'respect.' Everybody's busy professing their 'respect': We all 'respect' Islam; presidents and prime ministers and foreign ministers, lapsing so routinely into the deep-respect-for-the-religion-of-peace routine they forget that cumulatively it begins to sound less like 'Let's roll!' and too often like 'Let's roll over!' —Mark Steyn

"American actors like Gary Busey and Billy Zane appear in anti-U.S. movies for Turkish audiences; piercing intellects like George Clooney spend their time reminding us how the corpse of Joe McCarthy is the real threat to democracy; Western 'peace' activists rescued by Spec-Ops from a sword-assisted skull removal couldn't bring themselves to thank the troops, lest anyone suspect that guns might be occasionally useful after all. You'd call them useful idiots, but it's hard to see the 'useful' part."—James Lileks

Jay Leno: In France, rioters looted stores. Actually to be politically correct you cannot call them looters anymore. You now have to call them "undocumented shoppers."
