George Patton believed that to know anything of world affairs, one must have an understanding of its history. Sound advice, I think. Patton's type isn't allowed to exist today; he was barely allowed to exist in his time. He understood politics as well as anyone but he was his own worst enemy when it came to the subject. However, if something needed to be accomplished, no matter how difficult, Patton was the "go-to" guy.

During the Memorial weekend, I did more reading of Patton's writings and found a site with hundreds and hundreds of his thoughts on every subject under the sun. They are short, diary type entries, so if you find one section particularly boring, scroll down to a new subject and read on. I discovered that no matter the time in history, some things never change. Here's a couple examples:

"Politicians are the lowest form of life on the earth. Liberal Democrats are the lowest form of politician."

"Fires are not put out by disbanding the fire department and wars are not prevented by destroying a country's armed forces."

Liberals and the MSM haven't learned a thing.
