From All Movie Guide: "My name is Orson Bean.
Harvard '47, Yale Nothing." Actually, that oft-repeated introduction is a
double deception: actor Orson Bean didn't go to Harvard, and his name isn't
really Orson Bean. As a boy magician, Dallas Frederick Burrows borrowed the
first half of his stage name from another prestidigitator of note, Orson
Welles. Bean made his legitimate stage bow in 1945, then worked up a nightclub
comedy act which premiered in New York at the now-defunct Blue Angel (in 1954,
he hosted a summer-replacement TV series emanating from this celebrated
nightspot). Landing on Broadway in the 1953 production Men of Distinction,
Bean won a Theatre World Award for his work in the 1954 revue John Murray
Anderson's Almanac, and Critics' Circle Awards for his performances in Mister Roberts and
Say Darling. His later stage credits included Broadway's Subways are for
Sleeping (1962) and Never too Late (1964) not to mention his extensive tours in
the Neil Simon-Burt Bacharah musical Promises, Promises.
In films from 1955, Bean's best-received screen performance was as the
testifying army physician in Otto Preminger's Anatomy of a Murder
(1959). An inescapable presence on TV, Bean has participated in virtually every
quiz show known to man, from the familiar (To Tell the Truth, I've Got a
Secret) to the obscure (Laugh Line). He was also a regular as the ineffectual
Reverend Brim on the Norman Lear syndicated series Mary Hartman,
Mary Hartman (1977) and Forever Fernword
(1978), and more recently was seen on a weekly basis as cranky general store
owner Loren Bray on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Women
(1993- ). Outside of his showbiz activities, Bean has proven a difficult subject to
categorize: blacklisted for his outspoken liberal views in the early 1950s, he
was an ardent supporter of Richard M. Nixon in 1968. A man of many interests,
Orson Bean was the founder of the arts-oriented 15th Street School of New York,
the author of the oddball 1971 volume Me and the Orgon,
and one of the charter members of The Sons of the Desert, the famed Laurel
& Hardy appreciation society. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

"Though defensive violence will always be 'a sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." - St. Augustine
"A new idea is first condemned as ridiculous, and then dismissed as trivial, until finally it becomes what everybody knows." -
"This is the real task before us: to reassert our commitment as a nation to a law higher than our own, to renew our spiritual strength. Only by building a wall of such spiritual resolve can we, as a free people, hope to protect our own heritage and make it someday the birthright of all men." --Ronald Reagan
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government." -- Edward Abbey
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." John Stuart Mill
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." ~~~George Washington
"I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University." William F. Buckley, Jr.

“A nation that substitutes emotion and empathy for rational thought will eventually digress into the Dark Ages,” Congressman Steve King (R-IA),
INTEGRITY: The highest courage is to dare to be ourself in the face of adversity. Choosing ethics over convenience and truth over popularity means there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
They may be more likely to go to Heaven for good intentions yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.~ C. S. Lewis

The government is conspiring against the citizens. The citizens have pitchforks, torches, tea bags, tea parties, Grand Juries and the Constitution. The government doesn't stand a chance!
