Ike's Words of Wisdom That You Heard and Will NEVER Hear

Bill Katz has been around for a long time, and done a lot of VERY interesting things. Today, PowerLine pulls a couple of quotations from his blogpost from a few Presidents.

Two from Ike: first, the one ALL the Lefties love to love:

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex."

Katz demonstrates effectively that it's taken out of context--and that while it is what Ike said, it's not particularly exceptionable in any sense of the word.

Another Ike quote which the Left will ignore:

"Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."

...and holding in thrall such Frankensteinian derivatives as ESCR or Chimera-creations---or maybe "global warming"?
