Martin Luther King, Jr birthday, January 21, 2013, King quotes are relevant today yet rarely quoted, Obama et al should embrace, Means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek

“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”… Mahatma Gandhi

Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Isn’t it odd, with all of the great quotes from him, that we rarely hear many of them referenced.

 
Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.”

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

“The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.”

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

“Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.”

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.”

“I am not interested in power for power’s sake, but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.”

“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

“Means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek.”

“A lie cannot live.”

Nancy Pelosi, Not Enough Votes to Pass Senate Health Bill in House, January 21, 2010, Fox News report, Republican Scott Brown, MA US Senate seat

From Fox News, January 21, 2010.

“Pelosi: Not Enough Votes to Pass Senate Health Bill in House”

“WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she does not have the votes to pass the Senate’s version of a health insurance bill that is now in severe jeopardy of being scrapped.

Just days ago, that was the most viable option for keeping alive President Obama’s top domestic priority, but with the election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, the fragile coalition of Democrats has broken apart as lawmakers bicker over which portions of the $900 billion, 10-year Senate bill they will and won’t accept.

Emerging from a closed-door meeting with her caucus, the House speaker vented frustration with the massive version of the legislation.

“In its present form without any changes I don’t think it’s possible to pass the Senate bill in the House,” said Pelosi, D-Calif. “I don’t see the votes for it at this time.”

Among the issues that House lawmakers are unwilling to accept is the 40 percent excise tax on high-value insurance plans that unions earned an exemption from until 2018 after major backlash toward the Democratic-led Congress.”

Philip J Berg V Obama, January 21, 2009, Application for stay denied, Justice Scalia, Obama not eligible, Obama not Natural Born Citizen, Case 08A505

The corrupt, biased, inept, UnAmerican, US Supreme Court
has denied the Application for stay in the Philip J Berg
Vs Obama case. Yes, the same court that has as Chief Justice
John Roberts, the man that swore in an ineligible president
yesterday.

That’s right, the buck stops here. There will be no politically
correct BS on this blog. The US Supreme Court should have ruled
on several matters months ago, including but not limited to,
the following:

  • State responsibilities in presidential elections.
  • Clarification of the provision in the US Constitution requiring
    a president to be a natural born citizen.

This is part of their responsibility and they failed us.

From the US Supreme Court
