What Are You Going to Be for Halloween?

Wouldn't it be fun to don a happy face and know the world was in good hands. Hey, at this point, I'm thinking Allstate might do a better job than our current administration. Thanks to my friends, I'm getting lots of blog fodder. As much as it's human nature to want something for nothing, it's not the fair and equitable way. Consider the following quotes seriously:

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

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 the beginning of the end of any nation..

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Adrian Rogers, 1931

(How about we require this quote to be prominently published in every public building?)

All good quotes and to an ordinary person, they all make sense. But when dealing with short-sighted, self-serving people drunk with imagined power, it must sound like a foreign language.

You can pull your hair out over the mentality of congress, get an ulcer, make yourself sick over it, it's still going boggle the mind of logic-minded people. You have to wonder if they aren't all on the same page--A fast track to socialism and beyond.

I agree...put up those quotes as well as the ten commandments. Oh wait...the government breaks most of those commandments every day.

I agree with you, Elizabeth. I need some rose-colored glasses so I don't go nuts with everything going on.

WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
