    Last night, the world lost a truly great human being.

    Margaret Thatcher's work is done.

    America has lost a true friend, Great Britain has lost their finest leader since Churchill, and world lost a great woman.

    God's speed, Maggie. We'll never forget you.

    R.i.p.

    I'm glad they made a decent bio pic while she was still alive. I can't stand Hollywood smear campaigns after someone is gone. It all becomes heresay at that point.... even when there is public record to contradict.

    Sad day indeed, this world needs more forward thinking people, not less. Her presence was felt and will be missed.

    She will be remembered for centuries as a principled, courageous leader who single-handedly pulled Britain out of the ditch, stood with Reagan to end the Soviet Union, and talked about liberty and personal responsibility in ways that most present-day leaders cannot manage.

    “I think we've been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it's the government's job to cope with it. 'I have a problem, I'll get a grant.' 'I'm homeless, the government must house me.' They're casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It's our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There's no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation."

    ― Margaret Thatcher
