Quote for the Week

Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

Amen!

I kinda liked the stimulas package that was suggested. Give everyone over fifty-five a million. Strings are: pay off your mortgage, buy a new car and retire. Any thing left is yours.

So for forty million dollars, equal number of jobs would open, buying cars would also create jobs and foreclosure would stop in that age group.

I can dream, can't I?
