Quotes of the Week

Some great quotes about the state of the nation this week. First from Dean, on diagnosing the exact reason that the occupy movement appears to be careening out of control.

By rejecting the norms and institutions of civlized society they only find themselves recreating those institutions but without the underpinning of the rule of law. Without the rule of law, the Occupy "villages" become a study in the tyranny of the majority where pendulum swings in the "mood" of the General Assembly. . .

Next, from Peggy Noonan, quoting Paul Ryan on what should be the real object of our ire, both tea partyer and occupier:

The "true sources of inequity in this country," he continued, are "corporate welfare that enriches the powerful, and empty promises that betray the powerless." The real class warfare that threatens us is "a class of bureaucrats and connected crony capitalists trying to rise above the rest of us, call the shots, rig the rules, and preserve their place atop society."
Amen, brother.
