"When clients ask me a serious question, I always tell them what I know, not what I think. When it counts, never ask people what they think. Ask them what they know. You do not want to know what people think. The cheapest commodity in the world is opinions. If you don't think so, just ask anyone anything (especially teenagers), and they will give you an answer that is often without any basis in experience, knowledge and/or reasoning. I want to know what a person knows, not what they think."
Think: If you don't have to give up your car because others drive drunk with theirs and sometimes kill people in head-on crashes . . . then why do you have to give up your gun because others commit crimes with theirs? What person with a lick of common sense would suggest that we ban cars and driving because some people drive irresponsibly and kill people? The same logic applies to guns.
Willie McCool, a U. S. Navy Commander, NASA Astronaut and the Pilot of Space Shuttle Columbia Mission SRS-107. He was killed, along with the others, when their spacecraft disintegrated during re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere in 2003: "From our orbital vantage point, we observe an Earth without borders, full of peace, beauty and magnificance and we pray that humanity as a whole can imagine a borderless world as we see it and strive to live as one in peace." Ed's Note: I believe that God welcomed Willie into heaven with open arms.
Daniel Webster: "Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Thomas Aquinas: "To one who has faith no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible."
