Quote from: larsone86
Real story: Obama's international diplomacy skills may bring ceasefire to African region, and maintain oil production.

MSM headline: "African militants hold Obama in high esteem."

TV news talking point: "Do we really want a President who is respected by terrorists and militants?" [next to photo of Obama in traditional African clothing]

Clinton: “Obama is weak because he talks to our enemies, when I am strong because I threaten to obliterate them with nuclear bombs.”

Voter: “I am voting for Clinton because I heard on the news that how Obama is closely aligned with African militants. Also I think Hillary is a fighter.”

Quote from: Lord J Esq
How often do writers invoke a parenthesis, only to leave its mate forgotten in the torrent of words that follows! We live in the realm where all of those unborn closing parentheses congregate. We are they. Each of us is the tail end of a thought so incidental that it could not even exist in the writer's own world without being sheltered, by us, yet, through authorial negligence and our own ensuing absence, that world has been turned upside down as parenthetical thoughts leech into the environment, corrupting all things. We, we markers of the fantastical, can only gape at the pandemonium. Each of us has a place we shall never reach. Each of us belongs to something from which we are forgotten. Aware that nature has played some cruel trick on us, but only dimly, we seek out our beginning, and we seek out the purpose that gave rise to us, but what would we do even if we found them? They are written, and we are not. We are free radicals, a realm of closing parentheses who once could have brought order to the cosmos, but not do not even exist:)
No interviews, please! There is much work to be done if we are to restore sanity to the cosmos.

Quote from: Niccolo Machiavelli
It is well that, when the act accuses him, the result should excuse him; and when the result is good, as in the case of Romulus [killing his brother Remus to save Rome], it will always absolve him from blame. For he is to be reprehended who commits violence for the purpose of destroying, and not he who employs it for beneficent purposes

Quote
Si vis pacem, parra bellum.

Quote from: The Havamal
At eve praise the day,
when burned down, a torch,
a wife when bedded, a weapon when tried,
ice when over it, ale when 'tis drunk.
