Quote of the Day- Revolutionary Truth

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

George Orwell
English essayist, novelist, & satirist (1903 - 1950)

--Sounds a little like the time we are living in now. Orwell often had a way of "seeing" into the future it seemed. Or humans have a way of messing up the same old way over and over again.

Global warming?- You dare look at all the facts and point it out, you are labeled a denier.

Abortion?- You dare want women to see the whole truth before they 'choose' to kill the baby, you are trying to tell women what to do with their own bodies.

Same-sex marriage?- You dare say that marriage is something in particular-same as for thousands of years; that a child does best with a mother AND a father and you are the extremist.

Religion?- You dare say that your religion is true; you are definitely a nut (regardless of the reasons you may have for holding your view)

Any other examples?

1) Barry Obama is the Man of Perdition.

2) Uppity, non-Southern Whites are not above the conservatives, rednecks, and "poor White trash" that they like to deride as the new political correctness whipping boys.
