It’s getting crazy out there. The severe bias in almost everything out there is … sorry I can’t think of a word that fits here. I thought these two quotes were apropos.

From I’m no hero by Charlie Plumb A Pow Story as Told to Glen Dewerf  (Independence press 1973)

P 108  “Not once did I see any printed matter-a book, magazine, newspaper, lyrics to songs, written speeches, or billboards- that contained anything but propaganda. I was given the understanding that writers, artists, and journalists were required to take a solemn oath to promote in every work the ‘people’s fight against obdurate aggression and world hegemony.’”

P 110  “I’d had plenty of time-much more than was necessary-to see that his ‘truth’ was nothing more than a fool’s tale. No person with the slightest discernment could possibly miss the fallacies in the propaganda. Yet, it happened all the time. Like this novice, the Vietnamese expressed amazement when I did not agree that their black was white.”

Thinking is easy,
Acting is difficult,

and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.

Maybe it's not a great quote, but still a good one:
"He is like a trained ape. Without the training."
Anything from Firefly is a great quote.

(not from firefly) "Looting is socialism without the middle man." Peter schiff

You've done a good job, Boston.  I thank you as well for your fine books.  They have brought light and joy to me, as I'm sure they have to many others.
Yes, thank you especially for your books. My father-in-law (who has since passed on) handed me "Bulletproof Privacy" a long time ago. Then he handed me "You and the Police." That got me started down a different road than I had taken before. I had always been somewhat freedom-minded, but that helped me begin to really understand what that meant.

You know that's true. Stopping at Covid is a good point all on it's own.  I was kind of responding to the many cartoons I've seen painting maga hat wearers as ignorant backwoods stubble faced moronic hicks. But yeah it is a separate point. I really need to take an art class though.
