Multiple Choice

Over at Soccer Dad, SD has a couple of interesting excerpts up. Without checking his title, can you guess the origin?

It is being persistently perpetrated in various fabrics of social life including politics, economy, culture and military affairs.”

Is it from?

a) A Jimmy Carter speech during the Bush years,
b) A North Korean press release,
c) A Noam Chomsky piece at Huffington Post or
d) A posting by filmmaker Michael Moore

Not so easy, huh? Try this bit:
