Omar Nelson Bradley (February 12, 1893–April 8, 1981), nicknamed Brad, was a highly distinguished senior officer of the United States Army who saw distinguished service in North Africa and Western Europe during World War II, and later became General of the Army. From the Normandy landings of June 6, 1944 through to the end of the war in Europe, Bradley had command of all U.S. ground forces invading Germany from the west; he ultimately commanded forty-three divisions and 1.3 million men, the largest body of American soldiers ever to serve under a single U.S. field commander. After the war, Bradley headed the Veterans Administration and became Army Chief of Staff. In 1949, Bradley was appointed the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the following year oversaw the policy-making for the Korean War, before retiring from active service in 1953. Bradley was the last of only nine people to hold a five-star rank in the United States Armed Forces. C (Click here for full Wikipedia article)

Wars can be prevented just as surely as they can be provoked, and we who fail to prevent them must share the guilt for the dead.

While as a prudent people we must prepare ourselves to encounter what we may be unable to prevent, we nevertheless must never surrender ourselves to the certainty of that encounter.

The red-letter days, now become, to all intents and purposes, dead- letter days.

The teller of a mirthful tale has latitude allowed him. We are content with less than absolute truth.

Joseph Alois Schumpeter (German: [February 8, 1883 – January 8, 1950)[1] was an Austrian-born American economist and political scientist. He briefly served as Finance Minister of Austria in 1919. In 1932 he became a professor at Harvard University where he remained until the end of his career. One of the most influential economists of the 20th century, Schumpeter popularized the term "creative destruction" in economics. (Click here for full Wikipedia article)

-----

Bureaucracy is not an obstacle to democracy but an inevitable complement to it.

Capitalism inevitably and by virtue of the very logic of its civilization creates, educates and subsidizes a vested interest in social unrest.

Democracy is a political method, that is to say, a certain type of institutional arrangement for arriving at political - legislative and administrative - decisions and hence incapable of being an end in itself.

Economic progress, in capitalist society, means turmoil.

Entrepreneurial profit is the expression of the value of what the entrepreneur contributes to production.

Geniuses and prophets do not usually excel in professional learning, and their originality, if any, is often due precisely to the fact that they do not.

History is a record of 'effects' the vast majority of which nobody intended to produce.

Innovation is the market introduction of a technical or organisational novelty, not just its invention.

Politicians are like bad horsemen who are so preoccupied with staying in the saddle that they can't bother about where they're going.

Situations emerge in the process of creative destruction in which many firms may have to perish that nevertheless would be able to live on vigorously and usefully if they could weather a particular storm.

Success depends on intuition, on seeing what afterwards proves true but cannot be established at the moment.

Surely, nothing can be more plain or even more trite common sense than the proposition that innovation... is at the center of practically all the phenomena, difficulties, and problems of economic life in capitalist society.

The ballot is stronger than bullets.

The capitalist achievement does not typically consist in providing more silk stocking for queens but in bringing them within the reach of factory girls in return for a steadily decreasing amount of effort.

The first thing a man will do for his ideals is lie.

The modern mind dislikes gold because it blurts out unpleasant truths.

The stock exchange is a poor substitute for the Holy Grail.

The typical citizen drops down to a lower level of mental performance as soon as he enters the political field. He argues and analyzes in a way which he would readily recognize as infantile within the sphere of his real interests. He becomes primitive again.

We always plan too much and always think too little.

-----

(A) taxpayer is someone who has to work for the federal government without taking a civil-service test.

A hungry child knows no politics.

All great change in America begins at the dinner table.

An economist is someone who sees something happen in practice and wonders if it'd work in theory.

Approximately 80 percent of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources.
(10-Sep-1980)

Cannot swords be turned to plowshares? Can we and all nations not live in peace? In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity.

Freedom is individual- there is no 's' on the end of it. You can diminish it, but you cannot divide it and choose to keep 'some freedoms' while giving up others.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuous revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions.

Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.

Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

History teaches that wars begin when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.

I favor the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and it must be enforced at gunpoint if necessary.

I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I'm in a cabinet meeting.

I never knew anything above Cs (in school).

I would just warn you that if you get in bed with the government, you'll get more than a good night's sleep.

It is time for us to realize that we're too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams.

Middle age is when you're faced with two temptations and you choose the one that will get you home by nine o'clock.

Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with conflict by peaceful means.

Politics is just like show business, you have a hell of an opening, coast for a while and then have a hell of a close.

Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they've made a difference to this world. Marines don't have that problem.

Sometimes the right hand doesn't know what the far-right hand is doing.
(Attributed)

Status quo, you know, is Latin for 'the mess we're in.'

The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor. We maintain our strength in order to deter and defend against aggression- to preserve freedom and peace.

The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted. It belongs to the brave.

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are 'I'm from the government, and I'm here to help.'

The other day, someone told me the difference between a democracy and a people's democracy. It's the same difference between a jacket and a straitjacket.

The size of the Federal budget is not an appropriate barometer of social conscience or charitable concern.

Unemployment insurance is a pre-paid vacation for freeloaders.

We cannot play innocents abroad in a world that is not innocent.

We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Welfare's purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.

Well, I would- if they realized that we- again if- if we led them back to that stalemate only because that our retaliatory power, our seconds, or strike at them after our first strike, would be so destructive that they couldn't afford it, that it would hold them off.
(when asked if nuclear war could be limited to tactical weapons)

What does an actor know about politics?

What kind of people do we think we are?

When cruelty is inflicted on innocent people, it discredits whatever cause.

You and I are told increasingly that we have to choose between a left or right, but I would like to suggest that there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down...

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

>p>Ronald Reagan is the first modern President whose contempt for the facts is treated as a charming idiosyncrasy.
-James David Barber

In the Reagan years, more federal debt was added than in the entire prior history of the United States.
-Richard Darman

He has the ability to make statements that are so far outside the parameters of logic that they leave you speechless.
-Patti Davis

The fox, as has been pointed out by more than one philosopher, knows many small things, whereas the hedgehog knows one big thing. Ronald Reagan was neither a fox nor a hedgehog. He was as dumb as a stump. He could have had anyone in the world to dinner, any night of the week, but took most of his meals on a White House TV tray. He had no friends, only cronies. His children didn't like him all that much. He met his second wife — the one that you remember — because she needed to get off a Hollywood blacklist and he was the man to see. Year in and year out in Washington, I could not believe that such a man had even been a poor governor of California in a bad year, let alone that such a smart country would put up with such an obvious phony and loon.
-Christopher Hitchens

Frozen out
(permalink)

Published Friday, February 05, 2016 @ 5:11 PM EST
Feb 05 2016

Windows 10 continues to be a source of ongoing adventure.

Every few days, my machine randomly freezes solid. The mouse cursor is unresponsive and even control alt delete isn't recognized. The only thing to do is hit the power switch and hope the open applications refreshed any recently open files.

As usual, MIcrosoft has no specific solution for this problem. Searches suggested it had something to do with Windoes' active-state power management feature: in power options, PCI Express, set both options to off. We will see. The freezes don't happen daily, If I make it to next Friday, I'll consider it fixed.

Unless you have an urgent need to go to Windows 10, I'd suggest waiting. Word is there will be another build released before the free ugrade offer expires on July 29.

Quotes of the day: metaphysics

Published Thursday, February 04, 2016 @ 8:50 PM EST
Feb 04 2016

A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
-Walt Whitman

Corporations are neither physical nor metaphysical phenomena. They are socioeconomic ploys- legally enacted game-playing- agreed upon only between overwhelmingly powerful socioeconomic individuals and by them imposed upon human society and its all unwitting members.
-Buckminster Fuller

History is not the past. It is the stories we tell about the past. How we tell these stories- triumphantly or self-critically, metaphysically or dialectally- has a lot to do with whether we cut short or advance our evolution as human beings.
-Grace Lee Boggs

Humanists hold that ethical values are relative to human experience and need not be derived from theological or metaphysical foundations.
-Paul Kurtz

I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.
-Woody Allen

In metaphysics, the notion that earth and all that's on it is a mental construct is the product of people who spend their lives inside rooms. It is an indoor philosophy.
-Edward Abbey

It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic, of all things physical and metaphysical, of all things human and all things superhuman, of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul, that the life is recognizable in its expression, that form ever follows function. This is the law.
-Louis Sullivan

It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion, you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary... but, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics. I guess I wouldn't believe in anything anymore if it weren't for my lucky astrology mood watch.
-Steve Martin

Metaphysics is a restaurant where they give you a thirty-thousand page menu and no food.
-Robert Pirsig

Metaphysics is almost always an attempt to prove the incredible by an appeal to the unintelligible.
-H.L. Mencken

My studies in Speculative philosophy, metaphysics, and science are all summed up in the image of a mouse called man running in and out of every hole in the Cosmos hunting for the Absolute Cheese.
-Benjamin DeCasseres

One may not regard the world as a sort of metaphysical brothel for emotions.
-Arthur Koestler

Religion merges into mysticism and metaphysics and philosophy. There have been great mystics, attractive figures, who cannot easily be disposed of as self-deluded fools. Yet, mysticism (in the narrow sense of the word) irritates me; it appears to be vague and soft and flabby, not a rigorous discipline of the mind but a surrender of mental faculties and living in a sea of emotional experience. The experience may lead occasionally to some insight into inner and less obvious processes, but it is also likely to lead to self-delusion.
-Jawaharlal Nehru

The great question in life is the suffering we cause, and the most ingenious metaphysics do not justify the man who has broken the heart that loved him.
-Benjamin Constant

The moral truth here is obvious: anyone who feels that the interests of a blastocyst just might supersede the interests of a child with a spinal cord injury has had his moral sense blinded by religious metaphysics.
-Sam Harris

The philosophy of Atheism represents a concept of life without any metaphysical Beyond or Divine Regulator. It is the concept of an actual, real world with its liberating, expanding and beautifying possibilities, as against an unreal world, which, with its spirits, oracles, and mean contentment has kept humanity in helpless degradation.
-Emma Goldman

The Yankees, the first mechanicians in the world, are engineers- just as the Italians are musicians and the Germans metaphysicians- by right of birth. Nothing is more natural, therefore, than to perceive them applying their audacious ingenuity to the science of gunnery.
-Jules Verne

We live in a time of twin credulities: the hunger for the miraculous combined with a servile awe of science. The mating of the two gives us superstition plus scientism- a Mongoloid metaphysic.
-Edward Abbey

While the easiest way in metaphysics is to condemn all metaphysics as nonsense, the easiest way in morals is to elevate the common practice of the community into a moral absolute.
-Daniel J. Boorstin

Quotes of the day: Betty Friedan
(permalink)

Published Wednesday, February 03, 2016 @ 7:05 PM EST
Feb 03 2016

Betty Friedan (February 4, 1921 – February 4, 2006) was an American writer, activist, and feminist. A leading figure in the women's movement in the United States, her 1963 book The Feminine Mystique is often credited with sparking the second wave of American feminism in the 20th century. In 1966, Friedan co-founded and was elected the first president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), which aimed to bring women "into the mainstream of American society now [in] fully equal partnership with men". (Click here for full Wikipedia article)

-----

A girl should not expect special privileges because of her sex, but neither should she 'adjust' to prejudice and discrimination.

A woman is handicapped by her sex, and handicaps society, either by slavishly copying the pattern of man's advance in the professions, or by refusing to compete with man at all.

Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.

Chosen motherhood is the real liberation.

It is better for a woman to compete impersonally in society, as men do, than to compete for dominance in her own home with her husband, compete with her neighbors for empty status, and so smother her son that he cannot compete at all.

It is easier to live through someone else than to become complete yourself.

It is perhaps beside the point to remark that bowling alleys and supermarkets have nursery facilities, while schools and colleges and scientific laboratories and government offices do not.

Just as darkness is sometimes defined as the absence of light, so age is defined as the absence of youth.

Men are not the enemy, but the fellow victims. The real enemy is women's denigration of themselves.

No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor.

The feminine mystique has succeeded in burying millions of American women alive.

The feminist revolution had to be fought because women quite simply were stopped at a state of evolution far short of their human capacity.

The feminists had destroyed the old image of woman, but they could not erase the hostility, the prejudice, the discrimination that still remained.

The insult, the real reflection on our culture's definition of the role of women, is that as a nation we only noticed something was wrong with women when we saw its effects on their sons.

The only way for a woman, as for a man, to find herself, to know herself as a person, is by creative work of her own. There is no other way.

Who knows what women can be when they are finally free to be themselves.

Women who 'adjust' as housewives, who grow up wanting to be 'just a housewife,' are in as much danger as the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps... they ate suffering a slow death of mind and spirit.

You can have it all, just not all at the same time.
