2. At the risk of Godwining on post 1...
...it's Adolf Shicklgruber.

I can't say the "H" word.

3. LOL! I forgot about Godwin's Law!
Takes me back to my early wild and wooly Usenet days.

Yup, poster #1 both wins and loses. (YOU, on the other hand, are entirely too sly...Touche!)

4. Shakespeare?
Sounds like something he would say although I don't know his works as well as someone who really studies him.

7. Reminds me of a Stalin quote (which is still troublesome today)...
"One death is a tragedy; a million is a statistic."

9. It is Hitler, and it's
"What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."

And I didn't google it. I wrote it down a long time ago.

With so many powerful interests clamoring (and succeeding in too many cases) to do our thinking for us -- we cannot afford to ignore this lesson in history.

We should all commit this quote to memory.
