"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

The Sizzle of Economic Freedom

I have been invited to attend the Minnesota Free Market Institute’s luncheon today.

2009 Spring Policy Luncheon with  

         Lawrence J. McQuillan Ph.D 

    “The Sizzle of Economic Freedom” 

“Instead of selling the freedom steak, sell the sizzle,” says Dr. Lawrence McQuillan co-author of The Sizzle of Economic Freedom. “Along with extolling the virtue of liberty, conservatives should be selling the everyday benefits of economic freedom. ” 

In a luncheon address sponsored by the Minnesota Free Market Institute on April 14th at the Minneapolis Hilton, Dr. McQuillan, Director of Business and Economic Studies at the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco, will highlight the benefits of economic freedom and the status of economic freedom in Minnesota. 

From 1998 until 2001, McQuillan was a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, specializing in international economics. While in graduate school at George Mason University, where he earned a Ph.D. in economics, McQuillan was a research assistant for Nobel laureate James M. Buchanan and received the H. B. Earhart Fellowship for research excellence.  

 Stay tuned.
