A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

Republic > Democracy
If you do not know the difference, I advise you to look it up ladies and gents’.
That said, good luck to the “fantastic” Arab Spring and the “Democracies” growing there in…
Those should, just great places to be.

Big Brother is making its push…
The Maldives are absolutely beautiful…. but its continuous proof that Islam and Democracy are simply “incompatible.” Until Egypt, Libyan and Tunisia (Arab Spring) prove otherwise, I will not digress.
I almost ranted because I thought this Bill was banning the word,
but the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” (a misnomer) is trying to save homosexuality talk
for High School and not anything under that. My thoughts? Kids learn far more
thank you think in Elementary and Homosexuality needs to be taught alongside
Sex-Ed classes whenever they start, if that is 5th Grade like in California then so be it.

Finishing on a lighter note: “The Saddest/Funniest Robbery you’ll ever see”
Thought this was a very cool video.
Disclaimer: (1) I disapprove of the OWS (Occupy) movement - its shown in the video. I like their original message but thats it. (2) It uses footage from RT: Russia Today, a crap Propaganda Kremlin News Agency. Otherwise, enjoy.
