  • Political axioms

    Suppose you were an idiot.

    And suppose you were a member of Congress....

    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

    Giving money and power to the government is like

    giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

    -P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

    No man's life, liberty, or property is safe

    while the legislature is in session.

    -Mark Twain (1866 )

    Talk is cheap...except when Congress does it.


    The government is like a baby's alimentary canal:

    a happy appetite at one end and

    no responsibility at the other.

    -Ronald Reagan

    and the best one yet.......

    I don't make jokes...

    I just watch the government and report the facts.

    -Will Rogers

      1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

      2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a 1/2 hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the

      stopping suicide

      I am really mad this week. A young man in our community killed himself and if competent treatment that did not pre-judge a person's actions but instead treated everyone with respect was in place I have to wonder if the outcome would have been different. The Native treatment program has all kinds of...
