I would ask how people feel about animals being relegated to baggage on planes, but they'd pretend that it has "no relevance"...
One thing I know. What happened in 1983 has little relevance to the current economic disastrous policy that needs correction. All of this is just an attempt to distract from the reality of the President's actual record. It's fluff. We're worrying about the wind in Oklahoma and blaming it on Texas sucking all while ignoring the Hurricane on the East Coast. We're letting the media focus on the small stuff to the detriment of our nation.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
- -- Aristotle
Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
