Default Got This.....

.....in my e-mail today. Bold ones are my favs.

Wise Sayings: Government[/align]
[/align]1. In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one[/align]useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more[/align]is a Congress. -- John Adams[/align]
[/align]2. If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed; if[/align]you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed. -- Mark[/align]Twain[/align]
[/align]3. Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself. -- Mark Twain[/align]
[/align]4. I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into[/align]prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. -- Winston Churchill[/align]
[/align]5. A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul. -- George Bernard Shaw[/align]
[/align]6. 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[/align]
[/align]7. Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. -- James Bovard[/align]
[/align]8. Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from[/align]poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor[/align]countries. -- Douglas Casey[/align]
[/align]9. Giving money and power to government is like giving[/align]whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. -- P.J. O'Rourke[/align]
[/align]10. Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else. -- Frederic Bastiat[/align]
[/align]11. 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[/align]Reagan[/align]
[/align]12. I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and[/align]report the facts. -- Will Rogers[/align]
[/align]13. If you think health care is expensive now, wait until[/align]you see what it costs when it's free. -- P.J. O'Rourke[/align]
[/align]14. In general, the art of government consists of taking as[/align]much money as possible from one party of the citizens to[/align]give to the other. -- Voltaire[/align]
[/align]15. Just because you do not take an interest in politics[/align]doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you. --[/align]Pericles (430 B.C.)[/align]
[/align]16. No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the[/align]legislature is in session. -- Mark Twain[/align]
[/align]17. Talk is cheap... except when Congress does it. --[/align]Anonymous[/align]
[/align]18. The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. -- Ronald Reagan[/align]
[/align]19. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing[/align]of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the[/align]equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill[/align]
[/align]20. The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist[/align]is that the taxidermist leaves the skin. -- Mark Twain[/align]
[/align]21. The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of[/align]folly is to fill the world with fools. -- Herbert Spencer[/align]
[/align]22. There is no distinctly native American criminal class...[/align]save Congress. -- Mark Twain[/align]
[/align]23. A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -- Gerald Ford[/align]

Here's another.

FOR CONSTIPATION: ALTERNATIVE TO MEDICATION
If you are bothered by occasional or frequent constipation, repeat the
following phrase three times in succession when symptoms occur:

"My financial and personal well being are totally in the hands of Barack
Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Tim Geithner, Rahm Emmanual,
Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Al Gore"

If that doesn't scare thecrap out of you, then you are probably destined to
be full of it for the rest of your life.

Caution: potential side effects may include immediate nausea and/or
vomiting.
