It's Churchill-ism day!

 

''Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.''

 

''I'd rather argue with a hundred idiots, than have one agree with me.''

 

''Life is fraught with opportunities to keep your mouth shut.''

It was Twain I think that said something much like that, "Best to be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt.''

 

True words of wisdom!

Definitely written by a US citizen.

Indeed, written by a citizen of country whose founders recognized the necessity of including an amendment in the Constitution that enshrines the right of citizens to be armed. That right anticipates the possible need of the people to protect themselves against all manner of "bad actors", including an overreaching government.

Well, it sure has them scared right now or they wouldn't be falling all over themselves to take them from us.  I will not comply.  Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

In my book, a confrontation is at arm length with bare hands.
As a hockey player, I had to defend myself so often that way.

Probably wouldn't hurt to carry a Shillelagh too!  I use one as a cane, genuine Irish Blackthorn.

There is nothing theoretical about those who, as history documents, were slaughtered after they allowed themselves to be disarmed.

I played a little hockey as a young man so I understand.

“It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

“If it has four legs and it is not a chair, if it has got two wings and it flies but is not an aeroplane and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it.”

 

Said (allegedly) by the late Prince Philip to a World Wildlife Fund meeting in 1986.
