The more that learn to read the less learn how to make a living. That's one thing about a little education. It spoils you for actual work. The more you know the more you think somebody owes you a living.
The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets.
There is no more independence in politics than there is in jail.
| And how about this one from Winston Churchill? Guess we don't have many like him anymore either!!!|

Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.
- Carl Sandburg
There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:1. He talked with His hands2. He had wine with His meals3. He used olive oil
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:1. He never cut His hair2. He walked around barefoot all the time3. He started a new religion
But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian:1. He was at peace with nature2. He ate a lot of fish3. He talked about the Great SpiritBut then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:1. He never got married..2. He was always telling stories.3. He loved green pastures.But the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was virtually no food2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was still work to do

|Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.|
|Everything is funny, as long as it's happening to somebody else. |
|If I studied all my life, I couldn't think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of congress.|
If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?
If you ever injected truth into politics you have no politics.
