    Mitch the turtle has dropped back to the Donny the hair. Its a finish we all know is coming. Senate must stick a knife in the back of Caesar. And Rome burns for the corruption of the Rich Leadership.

    800,000 US citizens are being punished for the 'presidents' actions.......
    Article 33: Individual responsibility, collective penalties, pillage and reprisals. No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. ... Reprisals against protected persons and their property are prohibited." Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, collective punishment is a war crime.

    1913 wasn't a very good year. 1913 gave us the income tax, the 16th amendment and the IRS. -- Ron Paul
    A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings, not credit creation by a central bank. -- Ron Paul
    All initiation of force is a violation of someone else's rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it's supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals. -- Ron Paul
    Another term for preventive war is aggressive war - starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition. -- Ron Paul
    As recent as the year 2000 we won elections by saying we shouldn't be the policemen of the world, and that we should not be nation building. And its time we got those values back into this country. -- Ron Paul
    Back a hundred years ago, especially around Woodrow Wilson, what happened in this country is we took freedom and we chopped it into pieces. -- Ron Paul
    Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis because there will be a rejection of the dollar, the rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened. -- Ron Paul
    Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven't had capitalism. -- Ron Paul
    Cliches about supporting the troops are designed to distract from failed policies, policies promoted by powerful special interests that benefit from war, anything to steer the discussion way from the real reasons the war in Iraq will not end anytime soon. -- Ron Paul
    Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations, and politicians who create deficits should be exposed as tax hikers. -- Ron Paul
    Everyone assumes America must play the leading role in crafting some settlement or compromise between the Israelis and the Palestinians. But Jefferson, Madison, and Washington explicitly warned against involving ourselves in foreign conflicts. -- Ron Paul
    Have you noticed the debt is exploding? And it's not all because of Medicare. -- Ron Paul
    Having federal officials, whether judges, bureaucrats, or congressmen, impose a new definition of marriage on the people is an act of social engineering profoundly hostile to liberty. -- Ron Paul
    How did we win the election in the year 2000? We talked about a humble foreign policy: No nation-building; don't police the world. That's conservative, it's Republican, it's pro-American - it follows the founding fathers. And, besides, it follows the Constitution. -- Ron Paul
    I am absolutely opposed to a national ID card. This is a total contradiction of what a free society is all about. The purpose of government is to protect the secrecy and the privacy of all individuals, not the secrecy of government. We don't need a national ID card. -- Ron Paul
    I am just absolutely convinced that the best formula for giving us peace and preserving the American way of life is freedom, limited government, and minding our own business overseas. -- Ron Paul
    I have never met anyone who did not support our troops. Sometimes, however, we hear accusations that someone or some group does not support the men and women serving in our Armed Forces. But this is pure demagoguery, and it is intellectually dishonest. -- Ron Paul
    I will always vote what I have promised, and always vote the Constitution, as well as I will not vote for one single penny that isn't paid for, because debt is the monster, debt is what's going to eat us up and that is why our economy is on the brink. -- Ron Paul
    If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant. Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect liberty - not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we can tell the world how they ought to live. -- Ron Paul
    In time it will become clear to everyone that support for the policies of pre-emptive war and interventionist nation-building will have much greater significance than the removal of Saddam Hussein itself. -- Ron Paul
    Just think of what Woodrow Wilson stood for: he stood for world government. He wanted an early United Nations, League of Nations. But it was the conservatives, Republicans, that stood up against him. -- Ron Paul Justifying conscription to promote the cause of liberty is one of the most bizarre notions ever conceived by man! Forced servitude, with the risk of death and serious injury as a price to live free, makes no sense. -- Ron Paul
    Legitimate use of violence can only be that which is required in self-defense. -- Ron Paul
    Of course I've already taken a very modest position on the monetary system, I do take the position that we should just end the Fed. -- Ron Paul
    Our country's founders cherished liberty, not democracy. -- Ron Paul
    Prices are going up. Unemployment is continue to go up. And we have not had the necessary correction for the financial bubble created by our Federal Reserve system. -- Ron Paul
    Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. -- Ron Paul
    The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people. -- Ron Paul
    The most important element of a free society, where individual rights are held in the highest esteem, is the rejection of the initiation of violence. -- Ron Paul
    The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people. ---- Ron Paul
    There is nothing wrong with describing Conservatism as protecting the Constitution, protecting all things that limit government. Government is the enemy of liberty. Government should be very restrained. -- Ron Paul
    There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it. -- Ron Paul
    There's nothing wrong with being a Conservative and coming up with a Conservative believe in foreign policy where we have a strong national defense and we don't go to war so carelessly. -- Ron Paul
    Throughout the 20th century, the Republican Party benefited from a non-interventionist foreign policy. Think of how Eisenhower came in to stop the Korean War. Think of how Nixon was elected to stop the mess in Vietnam. -- Ron Paul
    To me, to be a conservative means to conserve the good parts of America and to conserve our Constitution. -- Ron Paul
    War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war expenditures. -- Ron Paul
    What is not conservative about saying, 'Don't go to war unless we go to war properly with a full declaration of war and no other way?' -- Ron Paul
    When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads. -- Ron Paul
    When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans. -- Ron Paul
    You don't have freedom because you are a hyphenated American; you have freedom because you are an individual, and that should be protected. -- Ron Paul
    You wanna get rid of drug crime in this country? Fine, let's just get rid of all the drug laws. -- Ron Paul
    Don't worry about what anybody else is going to do. The best way to predict the future is to invent it. -- Alan Kay
    Premature optimization is the root of all evil (or at least most of it)in programming. -- Donald Knuth
    Lisp has jokingly been called "the most intelligent way to misuse a computer". I think that description is a great compliment because it transmits the full flavor of liberation: it has assisted a number of our most gifted fellow humans in thinking previously impossible thoughts. -- Edsger Dijkstra, CACM, 15:10
    Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. -- Mark Twain
    What Paul does, and does very well, is to take ideas and concepts that are beautiful in the abstract, and brings them down to a real world level. That's a rare talent to find in writing these days. -- Jeff "hemos" Bates, Director, OSDN; Co-evolver, Slashdot
    Since programmers create programs out of nothing, imagination is our only limitation. Thus, in the world of programming, the hero is the one who has great vision. Paul Graham is one of our contemporary heroes. He has the ability to embrace the vision, and to express it plainly. His works are my favorites, especially the ones describing language design.
    He explains secrets of programming, languages, and human nature that can only be learned from the hacker experience. This book shows you his great vision, and tells you the truth about the nature of hacking. -- Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto, creator of Ruby
    To follow the path: look to the master, follow the master, walk with the master, see through the master, become the master. -- Modern zen Poem
    No problem should ever have to be solved twice. -- Eric S. Raymond, How to become a hacker
    Attitude is no substitute for competence. -- Eric S. Raymond, How to become a hacker
    It is said that the real winner is the one who lives in today but ableto see tomorrow. -- Juan Meng, Reviewing "The future of ideas" by Lawrence Lessig
    Fools ignore complexity. Pragmatists suffer it. Some can avoid it. Geniuses remove it. -- Alan J. Perlis (Epigrams in programming)
    A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God. -- Alan J. Perli

    Funny how most if the Repubs were for a number of Trump's ideas, justices and so forth but now that this shutdown continues to linger, some are separating themselves from him. This shutdown is a disaster for those persons not being paid but some of these people speaking out need to decide if they are really for or against the people.

    I can't help but wonder what ISISrael is getting away with while the US government is shut down... Trump has to be doing this for some reason; a reason which probably serves those who pull his strings, just as they have pulled the strings of most, if not quite all, of the presidents before him right back at least as far as Woodrow Wilson.
