'Freedom Is About Authority': Excerpts From Giuliani
Families are significantly less important in the development of children today than they were 30 or 40 years ago. Religion has less influence than it did 30 or 40 years ago. Communities don't mean what they meant 30 or 40 years ago.


Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.

I hope this man goes down like McCain, fast.

4. He had it coming.


You have to be able to turn your sensibilities off to fully enjoy "South Park".

Of course, you also have to be able to turn them back on to live life.

5. I don't need external authority figures
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 10:27 PM by undergroundpanther
I am a king. I know how to rule mySELF.My kingdom is of one person,myself and no one else.
So I don't need some sort of symbolic external authority to tell me who I shall be what I value and how I live. A king does not demand another king bow to him unless that person is a tyrannical bully in that case this rogue should be exiled from the world,in any way that works. No self declared or other type of so called Authority figure seeking to dominate my kingdom within me, to violate the boundaries of MY kingdom and break my will can do it without declaring war with me.If he dares declare war on me than his ruin shall come..and the ruin of all those sheep that follow this wannabe king who can't even rule himself, so he thinks he has a right to rule others.Nothing is more disgusting and perverse than a bullying tapeworm wearing a tin crown,telling me what I should do, think, feel,or be...

10. Yep
But if a worm thinks himself a ruler of himself while his actions prove otherwise well.. It's not destroying a king to fight a worm with delusions he can dominate you that has harmed you..It's killing the tapeworm before it destroys you and all the kings around you whom you share space with in equal self soveriegn peace.

13. Key word "PEACE"
and to those who deny peace to the peace seeker, woe be upon them, as the peace seeker is a formidable master of fondue, and many other pointy things.

Thanks, but no thanks, Rudy. I rather like using my discretion, and I REALLY like freedom.

9. "Religion has less influence than it did 30 or 40 years ago."
Where the fuck have you been for the past 6 or 7 years?

This administration has told us that 'Christianity' is what it's all about since they came into power.

Where do you think women's issues re: abortion... gay issues: marriage... death penalty:... pro-life or pro-death... is the proper way to address these issues?

It's all about religion whether you like it or not.
