"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Herman Cain in my opinion has no chance against Obama. Romney and Gingrich offer stronger opposition especially in debates and established contacts. Why, really, does anyone think itís the Demís going after Cain?
I think we just dont know. The first two...I would guess...guess...that something happened that was relatively benign, the NRA leadership felt it would be best to toss out a token payment, and whatever happened to the two individuals was insignificant enough to them that they signed off on a pretty small scale settlement. The latest to come out? Anytime someone shows up with Gloria Allred at her side, she blows her credibility before she even opens her mouth.
At this point I dont care. My problem isnt with the allegations or even the level/severity. Cain lost me on this issue when he came and said he didnt know anything about any of this. Sorry...just not believable and not credible.
I would say 3, but seriously a few months ago I told one girl at work she had a nice fat ass (in a good way). If I told certain other girls the same thing that would have been sexual harassment, I would have gotten fired. I would say it is something like that.
"Weíre going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and thatís crazy." -Reagan
