Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

And You Thought Your Small-Town Was Crooked..

This town of Quarzsite, Arizona takes the cake in the most crooked small town in America. During the open-mike portion of the city council meeting, a citizen makes some comments on upcoming tax matters and I believe makes a mention of the corruption. She is shouted down by the council members and man-handled by the local goon police force. It's really unbelievable, like something you'd see in one of those futuristic movies where the Bill of Rights has been made obsolete.

See the violence inherent in the system! Remind me not to speed through that town! The Mayor says he will not rest until these council members go to jail. He refers to the police chief as an insane Nazi. That's special. Over at Adrienne's, there are some email addresses, in case you want to drop these lunatics a line.


  1. Thanks for re-posting this. And in case you're thinking I'm some sort of hard working journalist type, I found the email addresses on YouTube. I did have the foresight to copy and paste. heh...

  2. You are next week's featured blog at Don't Tread on Us.

  3. Hey, copy and pasting is more than a lot of people do.

    Thanks Trestin for highlighting my little blog!
