* repeal vile, hateful, unconstitutional national socialist ObummerDoesn'tCare (do NOT replace it)

  "scientists and engineers in general learn the discipline of learning. If they get that skill, they can broaden their knowledge to relatd areas when needed to take on a new job or solve a perplexing problem... If such a company hires a promising engineer fresh out of school, for example, the company has all the tools necessary to help that engineer learn to use nano-technology techniques for a particular position, whether that person has a degree in nano-technology or not." --- Earl Boysen & Nancy Boysen 2011 _NanoTechnology for Dummies_ pg255

  "Of Liberty then I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is un-obstructed action according to our will; but rightful liberty is un-obstructed action according to our wll, within the limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual." --- Thomas Jefferson 1819-04-04 to Isaac H.

  "The most effective industrial research director I know says: 'The number of competent research people grows only with the square root of the total research group, the number of people capable of sustained superior performance with the cube root of the total.' To increase the number of superior researh performers from 3 to 10, one therefore would have to increase the size of the total group from 30 to 1K. Most experienced men would concur in the general proposition that the number of superior performers in any group -- whether this be skilled mechanics, doctors in a hospital, or professors at a university -- does not grow anywhere near as fast as the total group." --- Peter F. Drucker 1996 _The Executive in Action_ pg61

"Thus saith the Lord GOD: Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel; remove violence and spoil, and execute justice and righteousness; take away your exactions from My people, saith the Lord GOD. Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah..." --- Ezekiel/ יחזקאל/ Yechezqal 45:9-
"Now this is the mitzvoth, the statutes, and the ordinances, which HaShem your God commanded (Moshah/Moses/Musa) to teach you, that you might comply-with/execute/carry-out/fulfill/do them in the land to which you go to possess... Hear, oh Israel; HaShem our God, HaShem is unique. And you must love HaShem your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, must be in your heart; and you must teach them diligently to your children, and must talk about them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the path, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you must bind them like a sign on your hand (so you will often see them), and as a sign on your fore-head between your eyes (so others with you will often see them). And you must write them on the door-posts of your house, and on your gates (so those who enter or pass by will see them)." --- Deuteronomy/ דברים/ deberim/debrim/words 5-6

  "There's an old Chinese saying that 'prosperity can never last for 3 generations.' I'll bet that if someone with empirical skills conducted a longitudinal survey about inter-generational performance, they'd find a remarkably common pattern among Chinese immigrants fortunate enough to have come to the [United States of America] as graduate students or skilled workers over the last 50 years. The pattern would go something like this: The immigrant generation is the hardest working. Many will have started off in the USA almost penniless, but they will work non-stop until they become engineers, scientists, doctors, academics, or business-people. As parents, they will be extremely strict and rabidly thrifty... Everything they do and earn will go toward their children's education and future. The next generation, the first to be born in America, will typically be high-achieving. They will usually play the piano and/or violin. They will attend an Ivy League or Top 10 university. They will tend to be professionals -- lawyers, doctors, bankers, television anchors -- and surpass their parents in income, but that's partly because they started off with more money and because their parents invested so much in them. They will be less frugal than their parents... they will not be as strict with their children as their parents were with them. The next generation is the one I spend long nights lying awake worrying about. Because of the hard work of their parents and grand-parents, this generation will be born into the great comforts of the upper middle class. Even as children they will own many hard-cover books (an almost criminal luxury from the POV of immigrant parents). They will have wealthy friends who get paid for B-pluses. They may or may not attend private schools, but in either case they will expect expensive, brand-name clothes. Finally and most problematically, they will... be much more likely to disobey their parents and ignore career advice." --- Amy Chua 2011 _Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother_ pp20-22
