“I definitely wasn’t getting as much done as I would have liked,” said Garrus, shrugging. “The Citadel felt the same way, though. If anything, it feels better to get stopped by pointed guns than the bureaucracy. At least with the guns, you knew the people holding them cared about what you were trying to do.” ~ Sudden Supremicy chapter 10 by: Drenched in Megalomania.

I divide my officers into four groups, the intelligent, the stupid, the lazy and the hardworking. Each officer usually possesses two of these qualities. The hardworking and intelligent are fit for general duties. The lazy and stupid make up about 80% of all armies have use in routine menial tasks. The intelligent and lazy are fit for positions of highest command for they will invariably find the most efficient ways to complete a given task. Finally, the hardworking and stupid officers are a menace and must be disposed of immediately for they will create only mischief. ~~ High Army Command General Kurt Von Hammerstein-Equord
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every police operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? If during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever was at hand? The organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." — Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Nobel Prize winner and author of The Gulag Archipelago, who spent 11 years in Soviet concentration camps.Willing participation in a gun buyback because you believe criminals have too many guns is like castrating yourself because you believe your neighbors have too many kids.

Militia Duty: Defend. Co-operate. Prepare. To understand the above motto is to understand the foundation of society and legitimate government and law.
"The militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves, ... all men capable of bearing arms;..." — "Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic", 1788 (either Richard Henry Lee or Melancton Smith).
"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress shall have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, guns and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American ... That the unlimited power of the sword is not solely in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the People." — Tench Coxe, 1788.
"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials." — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788
If we are ready to violate the Constitution, will the people submit to our unauthorized acts? Sir, they ought not to submit; they would deserve the chains that our measures are forging for them, if they did not resist. — Edward Livingston
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded sense of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
Since self-preservation is the first law of nature, we assert the right to self-defense. The constitution of the United States of America clearly affirms the right of every American citizen to bear arms. And as Americans, we will not give up a single right guaranteed under the constitution. Malcolm X
To live is to suffer. To survive is to find meaning from within that suffering. Friedrich Nietzsche
Love and hate are not opposites; they are two sides of the same coin. We hate because we hurt, and we hurt because we love and in both love an hate, ultimately, we care. The true antipathy of love is indifference.
The real reason we cannot have the ten commandments in government buildings is that three of them state: Thou shalt not steal; commit adultery; or Lie. In a building full or lawyers, judges and politicians this tends to create a hostile working environment. - George Carlin

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!' Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.
Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.
Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.
The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.
Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.
Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.
Sincerely, Crock O. Schitt
