quote of the day (and probably much longer.)

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one’s time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.
H. L. Mencken

    This is such a strong statement as it sums up the problem many people have these days with allowing freedom to occur. They see it first aiding those they see as bad/evil/enemies so they squash it thinking they are creating justice.
