Quote of the Day: 20141221

We now expect a negative inflation rate in the coming months.

— ECB Vice President Vitor Constancio as reported in Zero Hedge. We actually have a word for negative inflation, it’s deflation. But this is a politically incorrect term in central bank circles.

The cult of egalitarianism demands equal treatment of unequal circumstances, a model that can lead only to tyranny and oppression.

Quote of the Day: 20141026

We can’t afford to have that money go to the private sector. The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it.

From our friend JR, and in loving memory of the late great Province of Ontario whose citizens just took it off of life support:

“When a self-governing people confer upon their government the power to take money from some and give it to others, the process will not stop until the last bone of the last taxpayer is picked bare.

Kershner’s First Law

“When it is possible for people to vote on issues involving the transfer of wealth to themselves from others, the ballot box becomes a weapon with which the majority plunders the minority. That is the point of no return, the point where the doomsday mechanism begins to accelerate until the system self-destructs. The plundered grow weary of carrying the load and eventually join the plunderers. The productive base of the economy diminishes further and further until only the state remains.”

G. Edward Griffin, The Creature From Jekyll Island

Today we offer two quotes by H.L. Mencken:

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.


Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.


Quote of the Day: 20130203

From our friend JR comes a collection of quotes attributed to Vladimir Putin but which we have not tried to confirm:

“During the time of the Soviet Union, the role of the state in the economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.”

“We must seek support in the moral values that have ensured the progress of our civilization. Honesty and hard work, responsibility and faith in our strength are bound to bring us success. “

“… we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy.. We are optimizing state expensis.”

“… instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere.”

Quote of the day: 20121006

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

— Winston Churchill (Brainy Quote)
