Quote Of The Day — June 18, 2015

.
The science of government it is my duty to study, more than all other sciences; the arts of legislation and administration and negotiation ought to take the place of, indeed exclude, in a manner, all other arts. I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry and porcelain.”

John Adams, (October 30, 1735 — July 04, 1826),  Letters of John Adams, Addressed to His Wife

    Well, there’s the problem… the most recent generation has studied painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry and porcelain. We don’t have any warriors in charge, only metrosexuals and lawyers.

      You’re so right, Hardnox. And McChrystal and just a handful of others are the last ones we had. Dempsey isn’t worth two hoots and a holler~! He’s putty in the hands of the obomination.
