These new circuitries of death are meant to humiliate, subdue and dehumanize.” ~ Jeffrey St. Clair

The drone of the trees was in their ears; the chirp of birds; other incidents of garden life, inaudible, invisible to her in the bedroom, absorbed them.

  53. “I’m a humorist. A guy like Paul Simon just makes my life so much simpler. When I was there, he had a hearing against hate. Steven Spielberg came and testified against hate. Paul Simon said hate was bad. Orrin Hatch was there, and he was against hate too. Everyone was opposed to hate. Is this really a wonderful way to spend our tax dollars, to have these men drone away about how against hate they are?” ~ Dave Barry
  54. “Most plagiarists, like the drone, have neither taste to select, industry to acquire, nor skill to improve, but impudently pilfer the honey ready prepared, from the hive.” ~ Charles Caleb Colton

Here we don’t torture like in Guantanamo. Here we don’t have drones killing alleged terrorist without any due trial, killing also the women and children of those supposed terrorists.

They don’t know what they’re doing half the time, and any time we stick up for ourselves, we’re pigs because we don’t know how to articulate our frustrations and joys.” ~ Tim Allen
  58. “What is it about maps and globes that seems to require our undivided attention? I’ve spent hours looking at maps of places I will never see and maps so old that they are a record of nothing but the faintest glow of the past. Perhaps they turn us into gods, letting us look down at the insignificant drones that occupy the earth. Or maybe they simply feed off our hunger to go off into the unknown. Venturing off to places where people don’t chain themselves to tedious jobs and financial debts but places of imagination, mystery and freedom Perhaps they’re just trying to tell us something.” ~ Dan Kieran
  59. “I’ve never argued against any technology being used when you have an imminent threat, an active crime going on. If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and fifty dollars in cash, I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him.” ~ Rand Paul
