Martin Luther King's speech against the Vietnam War.

http://www.hartford-hwp.com/archives/45a/058.html

Quote:
Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one's own bosom and in the surrounding world. Moreover when the issues at hand seem as perplexed as they often do in the case of this dreadful conflict we are always on the verge of being mesmerized by uncertainty; but we must move on.

I think Thomas Jeffereson quotes are some of the best. Here is one of my favorites:

"Too old to plant trees for my own gratification, I shall do it for my posterity."

"They are playing T-ball on the lawn of the White House. George Bush and the Vice President and Condoleezza, all the folks down there playing T-ball. Beautiful summer day, playing T-ball. Let’s see, bank failures all over the United States. Record oil prices. A war with no end in sight. Well sure, let’s play some T-ball. - David Letterman

Campaign Quotes of the Day
Added by Chris Brown on Sep 16, 2008


From McCain this morning:

"We're going to need a 9/11 Commission to find out what happened and what needs to be fixed," McCain said on the ABC's "Good Morning America" a day after the financial crisis slammed global markets.

From Obama this afternoon:

"Sen. McCain offered up the oldest Washington stunt in the book. You pass the buck to a commission to study the problem," Obama said. "This isn't 9/11. We know how we got into this mess. What we need now is leadership that gets us out. I'll provide it. John McCain won't. And that's the choice for Americans in this election."

George Will on how McNasty's temperment caused McNasty to say that the SEC chair should be decapitated.
Quote:
Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that "McCain untethered" -- disconnected from knowledge and principle -- had made a "false and deeply unfair" attack on Cox that was "unpresidential" and demonstrated that McCain "doesn't understand what's happening on Wall Street any better than Barack Obama does."

It's not based on any particular data point. We just wanted to choose a really large number."

-- A Treasury spokeswoman, quoted by Forbes, on why the bank bailout will need $700 billion.

Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When through the process of law the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished. – 1924 US Banker’s Association Magazine
