A great quote describing Hitlery Clinton: "...a woman who enabled a guy who turned the Oval Office into a frat house and his intern into a humidor.”


Schlichter did good in this interview.

Tyranny/Oppresion

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
― C.S. Lewis

I really like the the term "...Moral Busybodies." If anything describes liberals today, Moral Busybodies does...

We are witnessing a great awakening. Millions of Texans, millions of Americans are rising up to reclaim our country, to defend liberty and to restore the Constitution.

Concur; I dislike the term Social Justice Warrior for it implies at least the potential of something that is clearly missing. Moral Busybodies, as in:

"Don't you think that matches up nicely with my other current favorite word, you irrelevant moral busybody?"
or
"You moral busybodies are so dense you're like a walking event horizon."

Yup, that's a keeper.
