    That's timkona's "politics of NO," in a nutshell. Maybe he'll use it as a signature line.

    Stubborness we deprecate,
    Firmness we condone,
    The former is our neighbors trait,
    The latter is our own.

    -John Wooden

    Oh my... sound familiar?

    Since I don't read Latin... I looked it up.

    "Fallaces sunt rerum species.
    (Seneca, De Beneficiis 4.34)

    The outward appearances of things are deceiving.

    pron = fahl-LAH-kays soont RAY-room speh-KEE-ays.

    Comment: Its not so much the outward appearance of anything that is the problem. Its the inner reaction we bring to the outward appearance of things that can create conflict."

    I'm suprised that no one brought this up;

    The mesaage is that there are known knowns-there are things that we know that we know. There are known unknowns, that is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns, there are things we do not know we don't know. And each year we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns

    Straight jacket please, probably put some SNL writers out of work for a while...

    And, of course, "I didn't come here to be insulted!!!!", "Well, where do you usually go?" Poor Margaret Dumont, at the hands of Groucho Marx

    Jack Burton: Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.

    From Yogi Berra:

    You can observe a lot just by watching.
    He must have made that before he died.
    To the question "What would you do if you found a million dollars?"--I'd find the guy who lost it and, if he was poor, return it.
    If you don't know where you are going,you will end up somewhere else.
    You better cut that pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.
    Nobody goes there anymore, its too crowded.
    You should go to other peoples funerals because if you don't, they won't come to yours.
    A nickle isn't worth a dime today.
    The towels are so thick here I could hardly close my suitcase.

    If a small thing has the power to make you angry, does that not indicate something about your size?
