Two Sides of the Same Coin

Here’s a few quotes I found while quote browsing…

“When once a republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.” ~Thomas Jefferson

“…we have only a one-party government. It’s the winners. And then everybody else is the losers. And the winners are divided into two parties. The Republicans and the Democrats…that’s what a charade the combat between the Republicans and the Democrats is. It’s rich kids. Winners on both sides. So the winners can’t lose. And, of course, the losers have no representation in Congress…” ~Kurt Vonnegut

“Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We’ve got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, ‘Stay the course.’ Stay the course? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I’ll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!” ~Lee Iacocca

“I’ll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. ‘I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.’ ‘I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.’ ‘Hey, wait a minute, there’s one guy holding out both puppets!’” ~Bill Hicks

    Jefferson and Iacocca really hit the bulls eye.

    We don’t need a guy pushing dreams. We need a surgeon to remove the infectious cancer spreading uncontroled in Washington.

    You said it, Pelmo. And like any operation, it’s probably going to be painful and the rehab won’t be a walk in the park, but the other choice is to keep getting sicker and sicker…if you don’t catch it early enough, at some point the cancer becomes inoperable.

    Hello JoeC,
    allow a regular reader to say “welcome back to your own blog!”. Like many other visitors to “Hard-boiled dreams of the world”, I was vaguely anxious, noticing such a long pause since “Christmas Eve morning”…
    Even as a non-US citizen, I am concious of the importance of this unfolding year, which will lead up to the choice of your future President: importance for your country, significant also for many others.
    I touched upon this in my blog, under the heading “2008: facts and trends” (see: and a follow-up article by a guest author (see:

    Thanks for the “welcome back,” JJS. I enjoyed reading the trend predictions and comments over at Serenidee and, though it’s late coming, I’m intending to post a related post soon.

    In the mean time, best wishes for the New Year, and your new endeavors!
