Happy Fourth of July!

Some words for the holiday.

"And that is why so many business and governmental leaders today are promoting charity; it is desperately needed in an economy whose prosperity is based on growing inequality. First these leaders proclaim themselves experts on matters economic, and prove it by taking the most out of the economy! Then they promote charity as if it were the work of the church, finally telling us troubled clergy to shut up and bless the economy as once we blessed the battleships." — Rev. William Sloane Coffin

"Necessity, the tyrant's plea." — John Milton

"It means that we can't be scared out of who we are. And that's victory, folks." — LtCmdr Charles Swift, Hamdan's attorney, on the Guantanamo ruling
