About Van Basten

Basic Information

About Van Basten
Gender:
Male
Biography:
From what I have gathered, I was divinely conceived, and legend of my birth has been incorporated into Hoodoo myth. But, if you must know, my father was a Jedi, and my mother, a mermaid.

That should answer any and all questions you might have.

Important details aside, I'm more here to observe than participate.

"Decency, security and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that, in the administration of the criminal law, the end justifies the means -- to declare that the Government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal -- would bring terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine this Court should resolutely set its face." Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, 1928.

"I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." Thomas Jefferson

Anything good in the modern world, a capitalist put it there.

Remember kids: inside every technocrat is a plutocrat screaming to get out.

"Is it mandated by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution that innocent children, too young to decide for themselves, are to be denied the protection against crippling and death that immunization provides because of a religious belief adhered to by a parent or parents?" -- Justice P.J. Smith, Mississippi Supreme Court, 1979

"Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding." -- Louis Brandeis

"If these pale-faced nerds want to violently masturbate to Che posters and Das Kapital instead of learning useful information, let them. My groceries aren't bagging themselves." -- Gipper

"I am not among those who fear the people. they and not the rich, are our dependance for continued freedom." -- Thomas Jefferson, 1816

"It is a frequent vice of radical polemic to assert, and even to believe, that once you have found
the lowest motive for an antagonist, you have identified the correct one." Christoper Hitchens, 2004

"I walk where I choose to walk." Norman Thomas

Signature


"We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968
