Wow! If you like quotes...

...you should check out this link!  Peter Cresswell, at his blog NotPC, has assembled an incredible collection of pithy, insightful, and frequently humorous quotes on politics and bureaucracy today.  There are so many, I don't know where to start.  But here are three:

        — Milton Friedman
The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive.
        — Thomas Sowell
The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.
        — George Orwell
