1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy 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.

Looks suspiciously like the comments here.

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 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 my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

and attributed to the late Adrian Rogers.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

I don't know...these are not bad...

When shooting a mime, don't use a silencer or his friends will hear you.

Hurricanes are like women : when they come, they're wet and wild, but when they leave they take your house and car.

You're about as useful as a one-legged man in an arse kicking contest.

Sometimes I wake up grumpy; other times I let her sleep.

Being dyslexic has drawbacks. I once went to a toga party dressed as a goat.



Remember...Always look on the bright side of life.

..and there's more...

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I still miss my ex-girlfriend, but my aim is improving.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

If a wolf can take down a deer from either flank, does that make him bambidextrous?

Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

Children in the dark cause accidents, accidents in the dark cause children.

I attempted to post it as a photo from google it would let me.

It did credit who what or where either. Tea party it said. I know it was a politician from the 50's

What? You did not blame it on the kitties?
I am shocked and awed.


Kitties make wonderful traveling companions on your journey through life.

Have made a few friends in this life.
Most were cats.
