"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

Stop me if you think you've heard this speech before (III)

Quote a Kennedy.

NOIA Conference, June 16, 2009
As JFK said, "Let is [sic] never negotiate out of fear; but let us never fear to negotiate."
Hebron Announcement, August 20, 2008
As JFK once said, “…a rising tide lifts all the boats. And a partnership, by definition, serves both partners, without domination or unfair advantage. Together we have been partners in adversity - let us also be partners in prosperity.”
Atlantic Canada Oil and Gas Summit, May 30, 2005:
JFK said “let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.” The new approach in Newfoundland and Labrador is to negotiate fearlessly, with a goal of getting a great deal for the province, but also fully prepared to do no deal at all rather than do a bad deal.
St. John's Bored of Trade, November 1, 2001:
Bobby Kennedy defined it best just before his assassination in 1968 when he said "GDP means everything ... except that which makes life worthwhile."
Inaugural Speech as PC Party leader, April 7, 2001

John F. Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country."

I say to Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, "Ask not what we can do for our country, because we have done enough. Let's ask our country what they can do for us."

Enantiodromia --is typically experienced in conjunction with symptoms associated with neurosis and often foreshadows a rebirth of personality .

Will the bona fide Danny Williams please stand up ?

I've been waiting for the Williams speech that includes this line in a speech to a rally in Botwood:

"As John Kennedy once said: 'Ich bin ein berliner'..." even though the quote and the context mean absolutely nothing to the people hearing the speech.
