Quotes of the Day

A couple of interesting quotes while I prepare for filling in for Brian Wilson from 3-6 p.m. on NewsTalk 1370 WSPD. Postings this week will probably be light due to the amount of show prep I need to do each day.

"Liberals have a new wish every time their latest wish is granted. Conservatives should make them spell out their principles and ideals. Instead of doing this, conservatives allow liberals to pursue incremental goals without revealing their ultimate destination. So, thanks to the negligence of their opponents, liberals control the terms of every debate by always demanding 'more' while never defining 'enough.' The predictable result is that they always get more, and it's never enough." ~ Joseph Sobran

"The main vice of capitalism is the uneven distribution of prosperity. The main vice of socialism is the even distribution of misery." ~ Sir Winston Churchill

Maggie,

Your second quotation especially struck a chord with me as I remembered another pronouncement of Mr. Churchill's that seems to apply to many of those currently in Congress attempting to redress the country's ills:

"He has all of the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire."
