"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

  • Your what hurts??
"Ever recorded" always makes me chuckle, because mankind has only been able to observe and record anything about his environment for such an incredibly short time in the long, long history of the planet.  A lot went on long before man arrived.

For example...there is no way to calculate how bad the storms were that were triggered around the planet from the impact of the asteroid that dug the Gulf of Mexico, but I can assure you the winds were well in excess of those from Typhoon (insert any name here)...
