Thought for the Day

The following is thanks to Sasha of Sound Off with Sasha, 2 pm Fridays on WGCU 90.1 on the FM dial:

"No one can say he didn’t warn us ... about forming a Military Industrial Complex,  and now this: --

'Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history.  There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things.  Among them are . . . a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas.  Their number is negligible and they are stupid.'
     - President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1954"

The source of the quote is a letter from Eisenhower to his brother, Edgar, dated November 8, 1954.*

*Sasha found this reference for me when I inquired for the source of this quote.  Thank you Sasha.
