Nationalize the banks

“Why not just nationalize the banks? Why shouldn’t you just fire the executives who wrecked these banks in the first place and tanked the world’s financial system in the process.”

- Terry Moran , April 2009

Not good to have freedom?

“I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not. I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.”

- Jackie Chan , July 2009

Population control

“We need to radically and intelligently reduce human population to fewer than one billion. We need to eliminate nationalism and tribalism and become Earthlings. And as Earthlings, we need to recognize that all the other species that live on this planet are also fellow citizens and also Earthlings. This is a planet of incredible diversity of life-forms; it is not a planet of one species as many of us believe.”

- Paul Watson

Oil Companies Watch Out!

“We’ll take on the oil companies and harness their record profits to create millions of clean energy jobs — high-wage jobs you can raise a family on. I’ll end their special tax breaks and give them a choice: invest some of your profits in alternative energy , or we’ll do it for you.”

- Hillary Clinton

There’s not enough government.

“Our problem today is too little government.”

- Barney Frank

- John Kerry , December 15, 2005.

State control of all births.

“[I]f children were born to unlicensed parents, the state would intervene immediately. Licenses would be checked in hospital maternity wards. Unlicensed parents would lose their children permanently. Adoptions would be final and irreversible.”

- David Lykken , December 17, 1994.

Your kids belong to everyone.

“There’s no such thing as other people’s children.”

- Hillary Clinton

The government should control all births.

“Childbearing [should be) a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. . . . All potential parents [should be] required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”

- David Brower
