No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives.

And we’re very, very pissed off ~ Chuck Palahniuk

  31.  The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are. ~ HL Mencken
