Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by German War Criminal Hans Frank

Excerpt from Wikipedia

Hans Michael Frank (23 May 1900 – 16 October 1946) was a German war criminal, lawyer who worked for the Nazi Party during the 1920s and 1930s, and later became Adolf Hitler’s personal lawyer. After the invasion of Poland, Frank became Nazi Germany’s chief jurist in the occupied Poland “General Government” territory. During his tenure throughout World War II (1939–45), he instituted a reign of terror against the civilian population[1] and became directly involved in the mass murder of Jews. At the Nuremberg trials, he was found guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity and was executed.

Frank’s view of what the judicial process required was that:
[The judge’s] role is to safeguard the concrete order of the racial community, to eliminate dangerous elements, to prosecute all acts harmful to the community, and to arbitrate in disagreements between members of the community. The National Socialist ideology, especially as expressed in the Party programme and in the speeches of our Leader, is the basis for interpreting legal sources.[7]

The Wikipedia entry on Hans Frank is fascinating.

Excerpt from Jeffrey Tucker’s Wikipedia

Alleged role in Ron Paul Newsletters[edit]

In an interview with Reason, Timothy Virkkala, former managing editor of the libertarian magazine Liberty, alleged that Tucker played a role in the production of racially charged newsletters written on behalf of Ron Paul. By Virkkala’s account, he heard from Bill Bradford, then the editor of Liberty, that Tucker was an “assistant, [and] probably a writer” who assisted “editor and chief writer” Lew Rockwell in creating the newsletters.[9] Eric Dondero, who served as (election) campaign coordinator and senior aide to Ron Paul in the mid to late 1990s, told the American Spectator in an on-line reader comment that “Lew Rockwell and Jeff Tucker wrote the newsletters.”[23] According to a political blog by Economist, unnamed “numerous veterans” of the libertarian movement said it was an “open secret” throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s that Tucker and Rockwell ghostwrote the newsletters.[24] In response to questions about his role with the newsletters from Reason, Tucker said, “I just really am not going to make a statement, I’m sorry. I’ll take all responsibility for being the editor of Mises.org, OK?”[9]

Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Libertarian Harry Browne

Wikipedia

Harry Edson Browne[1] (June 17, 1933 – March 1, 2006) was an American writer, politician, and investment advisor. He was the Libertarian Party’s Presidential nominee in the U.S. elections of 1996 and 2000. He is the author of 12 books that in total have sold more than 2 million copies.[2]

Prior to his death, he was also working on a book called The War Racket: The Lies, Myths, and Propaganda that Feed the American War Machine. War, he contended, was just another government program, and was essentially flawed because “government never solves anything.” According to Jim Babka, “As Harry explained to me, the book was unlike any other he had ever written. Harry was well-read in his history, but after starting on the project he realized that ‘well-read’ wasn’t enough.” According to Browne’s wife, Pamela, he collected over 400 books, read almost all of them, and made copious notes. He was struggling with the book’s structure at the time of his death.[8]

Inspirational Quote of the Day: A Song Video by Randy Travis

The sentiments expressed don’t get any whiter than this.

Lyrics
He wore starched white shirts buttoned at the neck,
And he’d sit in the shade and watch the chickens peck
And his teeth were gone, but what the heck,
I thought that he walked on water

He said he was a cowboy when he was young
He could handle a rope and he was good with a gun
And my mama’s daddy was his oldest son,
And I thought that he walked on water

If the story was told, only heaven knows
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo
And although his wings, they were never seen
I thought that he walked on water

Then he tied a cord to the end of a mop,
And said, “son, here’s a pony, keep her at a trot”
And I’d ride in circles while he laughed a lot
Then I’d flop down beside him

And he was ninety years old in sixty-three
And I loved him and he loved me
And lord, I cried the day he died,

‘Cause I thought that he walked on water

If the story was told, only heaven knows
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo
And though his wings, they were never seen
I thought that he walked on water

Yeah, I thought that he walked on water
