5 10 LINES FROM PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU’S SPEECH TO THE U.N.  (there were so many great lines,  I had a hard time paring them down to 10)
10)  “You know why we're called "Jews"? Because we come from Judea.”
9)  “[Palestinian officials] said the Palestinian state won't allow any Jews in it. They'll be Jew-free -- Judenrein. That's ethnic cleansing.”
8)  “President Abbas just said on this podium that the Palestinians are armed only with their hopes and dreams. Yeah, hopes, dreams and 10,000 missiles and Grad rockets supplied by Iran, not to mention the river of lethal weapons now flowing into Gaza from the Sinai, from Libya, and from elsewhere. “
7)  “Better a bad press than a good eulogy”
6)  “…as the prime minister of Israel, I cannot risk the future of the Jewish state on wishful thinking. Leaders must see reality as it is, not as it ought to be.”
5)  “…a terror organization presides over the [U.N.] body entrusted with guaranteeing the world's security.   You couldn't make this thing up.”
4)  It [the U.N.] doesn't only cast Israel as the villain; it often casts real villains in leading roles: Gadhafi's Libya chaired the UN Commission on Human Rights; Saddam's Iraq headed the UN Committee on Disarmament.
3)  “[The U.N.] It’s the theater of the absurd.”
2)  “Today I hope that the light of truth will shine, if only for a few minutes, in a hall that for too long has been a place of darkness for my country.“
1)  “…as Israel's prime minister, I didn't come here to win applause. I came here to speak the truth.”

Ronald Reagan: Top 5 One-Liners
5) “The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.”
4) “They say the world has become too complex for simple answers.  They are wrong.”
3) “Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty”
2) “Here's my strategy on the Cold War:  We win, they lose”
1) “Of the four wars in my lifetime none came about because the U.S. was too strong.”

I’ve been all around the world, and all across America - from the caverns of Zion, Utah (see the movie “127 Hours”) to the “Lord of the Rings” landscape of New Zealand, to the magnificent smoky mountains of Virginia.  But it’s always the next place that excites you.  And so the Underdogma fans over on the Facebook page suggested 5 new places to hike or camp:
5) Mackinac Island, Michigan
4) Gulf Hagas, Maine
3) North Fork, above Big Pine, California
2) Blowing Rock , North Carolina
1) Glacier National Park, Montana
