MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE TO W.S.C.



famous churchill quotes, most appropriate to the times in which we live:

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

reuter's...

"A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him."

gitmo...

"Battles are won by slaughter and maneuver. The greater the general, the more he contributes in maneuver, the less he demands in slaughter."

let our military leaders do their jobs...

"Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities... because it is the quality which guarantees all others."

all you cowards, please shut up...

" Danger - if you meet it promptly and without flinching - you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!"

react appropriately, in appropriate measures...

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."

remember who they hated before they hated you...

"You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else."

ahem...

"When the eagles are silent the parrots begin to jabber."

you know who you are...

"When I am abroad, I always make it a rule never to criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home."

dixie chicks, danny glover, nancy pelosy, et.al; please shut up...

"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."

an emphatic win...no cowering...no bowing to the enemy...

winston, we hardly knew you.

I love them all, Nanc, but especially this one: ""When the eagles are silent the parrots begin to jabber." How appropriate is that?

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Don't know EB, I suspect they're plotting something or figuring out what the secret sign is going to be.

I prefer, "no solicitors" but some might prefer "no parking">

"Get your live bait and sushi, here" or "Eat here and get gas!"

Where is our Churchill right now? We need him bigtime. Every day I see my country dying bit by bit--and nobody with the stones enough to do a damn thing about it.

Warren said...

Florian, Churchill was vilified as a warmonger before the war and after the war. he was only allowed to step in and fill a vacuum after it had become apparent that the Nazis fully intended to destroy England as well as gobble up the rest of Europe.

Even in this day and age. The leftists still vilify him and attempt to smear him. Recently, he was accused of harboring Anti-Semitic feelings because of an unpublished article in his library. The problem is that he didn't write the article. Someone he had hired had written the article and he had made sure it wasn't published.

The moment hasn't come but we must remain ready. We can only hope that a person with conviction of character will step forward to fill those shoes and when they do, they will be standing on the shoulders of a giant!

Warren said...

Berty, how about, "don't stand on the sushi"?

nanc said...

i would never stand on sushi, no matter how beautiful it would make the bottom of my feet.

Cats would follow you to the gates of heckydurn!
