Randoms from April

Over at, writes Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:

Any American who thinks that he lives in a free country is delusional. He has no protection against roving gangs of goon thugs, and the state has license to steal his children. If America is a free country, I would hate to contemplate an unfree country.
Over at his weblog Royal World, pens Mr. Theodore Harvey:
The catastrophic destruction of cultural heritage in Nepal, along with the loss of human life, is horrible indeed, but I wish that more people could come to see the abolition of an ancient monarchy, as happened in Nepal seven years ago, as being just as tragic a cultural loss as this, though far more preventable.

Quote of the Month

Over at the Mail on Sunday, Mr. Peter Hitchens says:

I have an idea. At every future Election, there should be a slot, at the top of each ballot paper, in which we can put a cross against ‘None of the below’.
