Quote of the Day

"No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by his assassin's bullet.
No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders.

A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled, uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.
Whenever any American's life is taken by another American unnecessarily - whether it is done in the name of the law or in the defiance of law, by one man or a gang, in cold blood or in passion, in an attack of violence or in response to violence - whenever we tear at the fabric of life which another man has painfully and clumsily woven for himself and his children, the whole nation is degraded.
'Among free men,' said Abraham Lincoln, 'there can be no successful appeal from the ballot to the bullet; and those who take such appeal are sure to lose their cause and pay the costs.' " - Bobby Kennedy


  1. No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by his assassin's bullet.

    O rly? Odd--I was thinking that just a week ago, we were told that JFK's "assassin's bullet" triggered "the decline of America."

    1. And yet that did not stop his CAUSES -- like civil rights.

      Your point failed, as your faulty thinking so often does.

    2. So America's prosperity wasn't one of his "causes"?

      So if someone had managed to put a bullet in Hitler's head in the mid-1930s, do you think his "causes" (Germany ascendant, Jews wiped from the face of the planet) would have gone as far as they did?

    3. Yes idiot criminal. By that time the Nazi death camps were already roaring and a new head of the Nazi party would not have changed that.
