In January of 1971, General Telford Taylor, chief prosecuting counsel at the Nuremberg trials, made a considered statement regarding the American statesmen and bureaucrats who designed the war in Viet Nam and mentioned, in essence, that if the standards of Nuremberg and Manila were applied to these men, then "there would be a very strong possibility that they would come to the same end Yamashita did".
He was referring to General Tokiyuki Yamashita, aka "The Beast of Bataan" and "The tiger of Malaya"; who was the Military Governor of Japan for the Philippines during the war, and was convicted of war crimes and executed by hanging in 1946.
It makes you wonder if the same could be said about the men involved with the war in Iraq.

Just thought I'd share these words from the man who coined the term "military-industrial-complex."

This quote appears in AZ quotes ; Brainy quotes ; Wiki quotes ; and Goodreads quotes. The odds appear to favour President Nixon being the author of this quote. IMHO, this quote belongs in Truth Monger's "Words from the Wackos" collection. hint, hint

At a Passover service in 2001, Rabbi David Wolpe offered this quotation during his sermon.
Rabbi David Wolpe is the senior Rabbi of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles, CA.
He has also been named 'the most influential Rabbi in America' by Newsweek Magazine.

Starting at 17:00 of George Carlin's 1999 HBO Special entitled "You Are All Diseased", George launches a tirade about people who believe in angels. When I first saw the picture of what I initially thought to be crucified angels, I immediately thought of those words uttered by George Carlin.
I extend a huge Thank You to Truth Monger for the picture and the template I used to create this meme.
Here might be another question to ponder. How many out there actually believe in angels?

I would like to share quote memes featuring 5 quotes from Zora Hurston who was a civil rights activist, author, folklorist and anthropologist who lived from 1891 to 1960. Hope you like them.

I think this quote by Robert Reich goes a long way in explaining why and how Trump got elected.

This is a link to a scene from the series "The Newsroom" that clearly shows Republican mentality and hypocrisy in which Republican presidential candidates actually boo a soldier deployed in Iraq because he declared himself to be gay.
The highlight is when Will McAvoy calls out all the hypocrites with this question: "How many different kinds of disgusting do you have to be to boo a man who volunteered to fight and die for you?"

These memes I found are for all those sheeple that consider themselves part of the flock and are proud of it instead of offended.
