Quotes

"Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the 'hidden' confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights."
Margaret Huddy (Letters, July 21) wonders why "the world is indifferent to the loss of a Palestinian life" in contrast to the outrage felt over the recent murderous act in the Ukraine
"If the situation in the Middlethe Middle East deteriorates and the strait is blockaded, (Japan's) power supply will stop" warned Nobuo Tanaka, a former executive director of the International Energy Agency
Libyan Flag Graffitti, by Ben Sutherland, on Flickr (bensutherland) "Democracies make for stronger and stabler partners. They trade more, innovate more, and fight less. They help divided societies to air and hopefully resolve their differences. They hold inept leaders accountable at the polls. They channel people’s energies away from extremism and toward political and civic engagement….So for all these reasons … opening political systems, societies, and economies is not simply a matter of idealism. It is a strategic necessity."   Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, November 7, 2011
