Karl Kraus (Austrian writer, 1874 - 1936)

No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.
Theodore Roosevelt
(1858-1919) 26th US President
Our system is changing and [Congress] is the one branch that must act if we are to reverse those changes. We are seeing the emergence of a different model of government, a model long-ago rejected by the framers. … A dominant presidency has occurred with very little congressional opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court. … This body is moving from self-loathing to self-destruction in a system that is in crisis. The president’s pledge to effectively govern alone is alarming, and what is most alarming is his ability to fulfill that pledge. When a president can govern alone, he can become a government unto himself, which is precisely the danger the framers sought to avoid.

Did you hire him?
No.
Can you fire him?
No.
Did you write his job description?
No.
Do you pay him?
Yes, but only because I’ll be put in prison if I refuse.
So, do you still believe he works for you.
Oh, yes, absolutely.
Why do you think so?
Because he says he does, and the people who hired him say so, too.
Robert Higgs
I will say this in defense of whores: Unlike social conservatives, I have never seen them lobby the government to force others to live their lifestyle.
Restraint of government is the true liberty and freedom of the people.

So, now, we are hearing calls for a boycott of Burger King. Why? Because BK is making a reasonable business decision based on a bad tax policy that seems designed to kill jobs and force businesses to relocate to other countries.

As you have probably seen, Burger King announced this…

The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.

Some people would let the government sell them dirt when they already have fields full of it, but wouldn’t trust a business man to sell them seeds.
