                      QUOTE A DAY
       "Words That Inspire, Provoke and Entertain"
                  Tuesday Oct. 23, 2007
-----------------------------------------------------------

Greetings fellow quote lovers:

Friends... and after so many years, many of you have become 
just that. We have been through much. Saturday, my middle 
son was accepted at his first choice of school for college. 
And he received a partial scholarship based upon his 
academic record. I am so proud, I am bursting at the seams. 

This week's theme is "Conscience" and I sense something 
very wrong is going on with our country. Did you know that 
certain police departments are being trained by Blackwater 
mercenaries? 

In response to last week's featured video, V. Jackson sent 
me this note: 

      5-Year-Black Girl Handcuffed By Police
    http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=7562  

--This video is over 2 years old, and is taken out of 
  context. No, it's not racism, unless the child's black 
  teacher is a racist for calling the cops after attempts 
  by school officials to quell this child's tantrums were 
  to no avail, and her mother was unavailable to pick her 
  up for at least an hour after the school contacted her. 
  It's the school's duty to provide a safe environment to 
  not only the students, but the staff as well. If you 
  don't think a 5 yr. old can hurt anyone, tell that to 
  the family of the student who was shot by a fellow 
  kindergartener. Here's the rest of Desre'e Watson's 
  story: 
 
    ABC News: Police Handcuff 5-Year-Old After Tantrum 
         http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=694504
 
    BBC NEWS | Americas | US police handcuff five-year-old 
      http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4475513.stm
 
I hope you share this information with your readers, JA... 
I've come to expect more from you than a link that is 
irresponsibly misleading and sensational. V.l Jackson-- 

I can only say that there can be no justification for hand-
cuffing a 5-year-old girl. I am ashamed that any reader 
would invent propose the nationwide curse F-E-A-R that 
V. Jackson does when they bring up a child shooting some-
one. Not only is that irrelevant since the 5-year-old had 
no gun, it is so preposterous that they handcuffed her 
because they were AFRAID. 

Yes dear readers, something is wrong with our nation. In 
Maine they want to give birth control to 11 year old girls 
without parental permission. If handcuffing little girls 
becomes permissible, then this mindset will also accept 
torture and ORDER AT ALL COSTS. ORDER..ORDER...ORDER. 

We enter into a Brave New World. Visit the video and the 
one featured. Please comment on the video on EVTV1 and 
discuss so the entire group can read. 

Best,

JA

           JA's Video Pick of The Week

       Helicopter Video of Police Brutality

  In a dramatic video shot from a helicopter, a policeman 
  brutalizes a suspect until he discovers that he is being

 On some positions,
 Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?'
 Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?'
 And Vanity comes along and asks the question, 
 'Is it popular?' 
 But Conscience asks the question 'Is it right?'

 And there comes a time when one must take a position that
 is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do
 it because Conscience tells him it is right. 
 -- Martin Luther King

 Reason often makes mistakes, but conscience never does.
 --Josh Billings (1856-1950) Irish playwright 

------------------------------------------------------------


 Courage without conscience is a wild beast. 
 --Robert Ingersoll (1833-1899) American philosopher & 
   orator
