Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Sheik Omar Chreitien tells us that September 11th was partly America's fault, for being so powerful.

"I said: `When you're powerful like you are, you guys, this is the time to be nice.' That's one of the problems. You cannot exercise your power to the point of humiliation for the others," Chr├ętien said. "The Western world, not only the Americans, but the Western world has to realize because they are human beings, too. There are long-term consequences if you don't look hard at the reality in 10 or 20 or 30 years from now.''
