Oldies but goodies

  These have been around awhile, but they are important enough to review periodically.



1) Suppose you were an idiot AND suppose you were a member
of Congress. But I repeat myself.
. . Mark Twain

2) I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity
is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself
up by the handle.
. Winston Churchill

3) A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always
depend on the support of Paul.
. . .George Bernard Shaw

4) A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow
man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money.
. . .G. Gordon Liddy

5) Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a
sheep voting on what to have for dinner.
. . .James Bovard, Civil Libertarian (1994)

6) Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from
poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
. . . Douglas Casey, Classmate of Bill Clinton at Georgetown University.

7) Giving MONEY and POWER to government is like giving
whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
. . P.J O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

8) Government is the great fiction, through which everybody
endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.
. . .Frederic Bastiat, French Economist (1801-1850)

9) Government's view of the economy could be summed up in
a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving,
regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
. . .Ronald Reagan (1986)

10) I don't make jokes. I just ! WATCH the GOVERNMENT and
report the facts.
. . . Will Rogers

11) If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you
see what it costs when it's free.
. . . P.J. O'Rourke

12) In general, the art of government consists in taking as
much money as possible from one party of the citizens
to give to the other.
. .Voltaire (1764)

13) Just because you do not take an interest in politics
doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.
. . . Pericles (430 B.C.)

14) No man's Life, Liberty, or Property is SAFE while the
legislature is in session.
. .Mark Twain (1866)

15) Talk is cheap ... except when Congress does it.
. . . Unknown

16) The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a
happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the
other.
. . . Ronald Reagan

17) The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of
the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the
equal sharing of misery.
. . .Winston Churchill

18) The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist
is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.
. . .Mark Twain

19) The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of
folly is to fill the world with fools.
. . .Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

20) There is no distinctly native American criminal class...
save Congress.
. . Mark Twain

21) What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.
. . .Edward Langley, Artist (1928 - 1995)

22) A government big enough to give you everything you want,
is strong enough to take everything you have.
. . . Thomas Jefferson

I'm fully aware of that. Given enough time, even an idiot will eventually spit out something intelligent. I posted it because it denotes the real character of this lunatic. It's like including a swine amongst pearls.

No biggie...
