Government is not the solution to our problem—government is the problem.   Ronald Reagan

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time   Mike Adams (RIP Mike)

View of impact from an earth-bound telescope.  Clearer views should be forth coming from the LICIACube, Hubble and JWST.
