Quote of the Day

Nomad's comment under National Bank sent me on a 20 minute hunt for this quote:

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget ye were our countrymen. -- Samuel Adams

It seems that Sheepledom is not unique to us today. It would read today:

If you love your portfolio, your DVRs, your McMansions, more than freedom, the easiness of slavery better than the struggle for freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your input or your guns (but you dont have any). Beg Nanny Gov to feed you. May you not even realize you are a slave and may we forget you were ever our Countrymen.

Samuel Adams was a smart feller. Makes good beer too! Ha ha!
