Great Timeless Truths

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 government.
John Adams

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.
Will Rogers

    To much truth in all that.

  3. Oh my God. They are all correct especially the ones about government. My provincial government is screwing us by adding a 5% addition to what our gas and what ever we buy and this isn’t a joke. That was a New Years gift from the premier and her screws. Sorry about that Steveo. the jokes were funny but reality isn’t.

    Have a great Sunday my friend. See ya.

    These are so very true, but most people just don’t see it. They treat some in the government as celebrities (depending on what side of the aisle they are on) and many as villains. Yet they are all the same.

    Have a timelesstastic Silly Sunday. โ˜บ
