And the #BlockReuters List Continues

If you missed the reason for the #BlockReuters movement, then please take a look at my prior post, which also includes the initial list of those who have blocked Reuters on Twitter. Please remember to follow @ToddKincannon; see my prior post as to why. Also, follow @ConservativePA whose work allowed this post to be made hours earlier than otherwise. Thanks, Ken Carroll @KenInEastman

"I love to see honest and honorable men at the helm, men who will not bend their politics to their purses nor pursue measures by which they may profit and then profit by their measures." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Rutledge




“The average newspaper has the intelligence of a hillbilly, the courage of a rat, the fairness of a claim-jumper, the information of a high-school janitor, the taste of a designer of celluloid valentines, and the honor of a police-station lawyer.” - H. L. Mencken



“We must have a citizenship less concerned about what the government can do for it and more anxious about what it can do for the nation.” - Warren G. Harding 



“What is honored in a country will be cultivated there.” - Plato



“Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood--the virtues that made America. The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.” - Theodore Roosevelt



If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. - George Washington 



“Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.” - Winston Churchill



“Fascism was really the basis for the New Deal. It was Mussolini’s success in Italy, with his government-directed economy, that led the early New Dealers to say "But Mussolini keeps the trains running on time." - Ronald Reagan 



“We welcome change and openness; for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace.  There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization:  Come here to this gate!  Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate!  Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” - Ronald Reagan



“Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man.” - Mark Twain



“If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." - Samuel Adams



“It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are of a different opinion, it is because they only know their own side of the question. The other party to the comparison knows both sides.” - John Stuart Mill 



“Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have.” - Harry Emerson Fosdick



“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams
