****25 Great Truths*****
25 Great Truths & possibly, the 5 best
sentences you'll ever read !!!

GREAT TRUTHS

1. In my many years I have come to a conclusion
that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is
a congress.
-- John Adams

2. If you don't read the newspaper you are
uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.
-- Mark Twain

3. Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you
were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself.
-- Mark Twain

4. 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

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

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

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

8. 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

9. Giving money and power to government is like
giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
-- P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

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

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 Reagan (1986)

12. I don't make jokes. I just watch the
government and report the facts.
-- Will Rogers

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

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

15. 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.)

16. No man's life, liberty, or property is safe
while the legislature is in session..
-- Mark Twain (1866)

17. Talk is cheap...except when Congress does
it.
-- Anonymous

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

19. 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

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

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

22. There is no distinctly Native American
criminal class...save Congress.
-- Mark Twain

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

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

25. We hang the petty thieves and appoint the
great ones to public office.
-- Aesop


FIVE BEST SENTENCES

1. You cannot legislate the poor into
prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working
for...another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody
anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that
they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care
of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to
work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is
the beginning of the end of any nation!


Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?
Neither could I......

Quoting Punk A$$ets: "His cheese has slid off his cracker and the threshold between genius and nuts has indeed been compromised."

“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.”- Mark Twain
