If only we could all be so trusting. Or incoherent.

juvenal was a roman satirist, terry.

Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis, Anglicized as Juvenal, was a Roman satiric poet of the late 1st century and early 2nd century AD. He is known for coining the phrase "panem et circenses" ("bread and circuses") to describe the primary pursuits of the Roman populace. The rhetorical question "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?", "Who shall guard the guardians?" comes from his satire On Women, and arises in a discussion concerning the usefulness of having eunuchs guard your women. This phrase was famously used by Alan Moore as the inspiration for the title of his acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen, in which the phrase is translated "Who will watch the watchmen?"

jesus christ, hasn't it ever dawned on you folks that every state leader that ever broke the law was convinced he had a good reason to do so? if only thinking it made it so ...

those who presume the guilt of the president do so because he's been lying to us--badly--for 5 years now. we've seen more than enough.
