In Cardassia, the verdict is always known before the trial begins; and it's always the same.
I think Schiff is a “hero” because he's the perfect sort of setup man. He sets up a scandal, he plants the evidence, then he becomes the detective who goes and finds the evidence, then he becomes the judge who conducts the hearings and rigs the process and finally he declares the verdict. So his skill at performing all these roles simultaneously with the same straight face, this is kind of an achievement.
Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have…The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.
The point to remember is what government gives, it must first take away.
John S. Caldwell
No nation ever taxed itself into prosperity.
You’re correct, lack of water is a serious humanitarian issue. But it is not an overpopulation issue. Water, although plentiful, can be difficult to move to those who need it, hence local water scarcity. As Karen Bakker (2003) states: “Water is one of the heaviest substances mobilized by human beings in their daily search for subsistence…Water is expensive to transport relative to value per unit volume, requiring large-scale capital investments in infrastructure networks which act as an effective barrier.” In other words, we need more dams, canals, and pipelines, not more abortion, contraception, and sterilization.
If you're fighting the system, then you're still caught in it. It's not about fighting the system; it's about ceasing to hold it together. Non-cooperation. We cannot be imprisoned without our cooperation. Their power is in our acquiescence.

There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.
Senator Daniel Inouye
A study by meteorologist Anthony Watts found that almost 90 percent of the 1221 weather stations in the U.S. did not meet the National Weather Service’s setting standards, which requires that they be at least 100 feet from any artificial heat source or radiating surface.
No matter what you think of Trump and David Wilcock, jump to 38:18 and listen to David Wilcock until at least 45:56 in the video below. He says that everybody is dirty. There are no sinless white knights. We need to stop blaming people for their past misdeeds and allow them to be heroes right now to help the white hats finally win and make the whole world (and beyond) a better place. Also listen to Dan Bongino from 31:39 to 32:29 for a similar message.
#WalkAway with Brandon Straka
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.

The US government is similar to the mob, except it has prisons to make it look more respectable. Taxes are the protection money that you must pay to keep the government mob off your back. The government uses violent criminals to keep the sheeple scared so they'll pay even more protection money and allow more of their freedoms to be taken away for the sake of security. The government mob will fight crime on the surface, but most of their time will be spent on fining the sheeple for little violations here and there to squeeze even more money out of them. To the government mob, people really are sheeple. They are nothing but sheep to be sheared. And they are sheared far too often with hardly any time to grow between shearings.
Duane Alan Hahn
There are some acts of justice which corrupt those who perform them.
A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious.
It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.
Liberty may make mistakes but tyranny is the death of a nation.
Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man. There has never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.
H. L. Mencken
George Carlin on the Plutocracy
Bill Wesley at YouTube had this to say about the clip above: "There, that wasn't so bad, just a little pin prick injection of direct honesty instead of the usual quack tincture of pretend analysis. I can tell you what our masters fear the most and it's not education, it's worse than education. They fear unsigned creativity, individual invention and integrity. What we call 'education' is really just 'regimentation.' The goal is not to promote understanding, but rather to prevent originality. An independently owned patent can bring down an entire corporation."
There's a reason education sucks, and it's the same reason it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better. Don't look for it. Be happy with what you've got because the owners of this country don't want that. I'm talking about the real owners now. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them. That's against their interests.
Stripped of ethical rationalizations and philosophical pretensions, a crime is anything that a group in power chooses to prohibit.
Freedom is hammered out on the anvil of discussion, dissent, and debate.
Hubert H. Humphrey
Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.
The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem.
Government is not reason and it is not eloquence. It is force! Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.
By definition, a government has no conscience. Sometimes it has a policy, but nothing more.
The question is not whether the system works, but whether we like the way it works. Just because something works doesn't mean it is desirable. Concentration camps work, if your purpose is to enslave people. Stealing works, if all you care about is money. Lying works, if you don't give a damn about your personal integrity. Literally anything, no matter how monstrously immoral will work, depending on your desires and how you define the term work.
Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons.
Edited clip from "Day of the Dove" (Star Trek: TOS)
The object of government in peace and in war is not the glory of rulers or of races, but the happiness of the common man.
Baron William Henry Beveridge
Many people want the government to protect the consumer. A much more urgent problem is to protect the consumer from the government.
When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.
P. J. O'Rourke
Once upon a time only Washington's face was on our money, now Washington's hands are on it too.
Don't steal. The government hates competition.
Patrick Henry railed against taxation without representation. He should see it with representation.
Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
P. J. O'Rourke
The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets.
A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.
Alexis De Tocqueville
Taxation with representation of corporation through remuneration.
Duane Alan Hahn
It is getting harder and harder to support the government in the style to which it has become accustomed.
Today's dime is really a dollar with all the taxes deducted.
My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Civilized nations are ones that simply cannot endure wrongs or injustice except at home.
You threaten your own freedoms by trying to hinder the harmless freedoms of others.

A conservative sees a man drowning 50 feet from shore, throws him a 25 foot long rope, and tells him to swim to it. A liberal throws him a rope 50 feet long, then drops his end and goes off to perform another good deed.
I love talking about the Kennedy assasination. The reason I do is because I'm fascinated by it. I'm fascinated that our government could lie to us so blatantly, so obviously for so long, and we do absolutely nothing about it. I think that's interesting in what is ostensibly a democracy. Sarcasm - come on in. People say "Bill, quit talking about Kennedy man. It was a long time ago, just let it go, alright? It's a long time ago, just forget it." I'm like, alright, then don't bring up Jesus to me. As long as we're talking shelf life here...
I don't vote. On Election Day, I stay home. I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, "If you don't vote, you have no right to complain," but where's the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote—who did not even leave the house on Election Day—am in no way responsible for what these politicians have done and have every right to complain about the mess that you created.
Turning your underwear inside-out whenever you become tired of the current state of affairs is not a good solution. Both sides are disgusting.
Duane Alan Hahn
Explanation for the Dense:
Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same dirty pair of underwear. Americans keep turning their underwear inside-out and expect everything to be fresh and clean each time. That's insane. It will be business as usual because it's the same revolting pair of underwear. One side finds little ways to make things worse, we kick them out, the other side makes things a little worse, we kick them out and the cycle continues like that because most people seem to be in a trance. Wake up!
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. Most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
