Short quote from article by Ed Evans, MGySgt., USMC (Ret.) (Not as lean, Not as mean, But still a Marine) About A Terrorist Incident in October, 2002. "It really is TIME WE TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK. We need TO REFUSE to go watch multi-millionaires play football and baseball, complaining all the way that they don't get what they deserve.
"We need to REFUSE TO PAD THE POCKETBOOKS OF OVERPAID, UNDER-TALENTED MOVIE STARS who have confused celebrityship with wisdom. We need to REFUSE TO PANDER to an out-of-control news media that believes it is in control and knows better than the American people.
"WE REALLY NEED TO BE AMERICANS AGAIN, full of hope for the future and in control of our destiny. The world needs us to be Americans. For everyone else, I REPEAT: "Delta's ready when you are (referring to airline and those who threatened to leave USA)."
"I agree with you, that in Politicks the Middle Way is none at all. If We finally fail in this great and glorious Contest, it will be by
bewildering ourselves in groping after this middle Way." -- Adams to Horatio Gates, 23 March 1776, Papers of John Adams, 4:59.
