“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

    DHS Quietly Moving, Releasing Vanloads of Illegal Aliens Away from Border

    JUNE 03, 2016
    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents, Border Patrol sources tell Judicial Watch. The government classifies them as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and this week around 35 were transferred 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. Judicial Watch was present when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at the Phoenix Greyhound station on Buckeye Road.

    2. Everybody is a star
      Who could rain and chase the dust away
      Everybody wants to shine
      Who will come out on a cloudy day?

      'Tis the sun that loves you 'round
      When the system tries to bring you down
      Every had to shine at night
      You don't need darkness to do what you think is right

      Everybody is a star
      I can feel it when you shine on me
      I love you for who you are
      Not the one you feel you need to be
      Ever catch a falling star
      Ain't no stopping 'til it's on the ground

      Everybody is a star
      One big circle goin round and round
      Shine, shine, shine, shine

  6. “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    ― Muhammad Ali
