It’s like deja-vu, all over again. Yogi B. You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. Frank Zappa

“The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.”

I once lived with a family in the middle of nowhwere in Florida. The “dad” was quite a character and would blurt out all sorts of redneck wisdom, especially after a few beers, for example:

“If the trees had pu****s, we’d do away with women.”
“All babies are born male; they just pull the d***s off the dumb ones.”

“liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day
America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened”.
- Norman Thomas (U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate from 1928 to 1948)

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

My reading of history convinces me

“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the
United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
- Samual Adams

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither
inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the

than an armed one.”
- Thomas Jefferson

“I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the
people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

334 C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950)

sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any
who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
- George Washington

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone
who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it
but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…The
great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might
have a gun.”
- Patrick Henry

   Love is the answer. But while you're waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions.

 

  Some guy hit my car fender the other day, and I said unto him, "Be fruitful and multiply." But not in those words.

 

  As the poet said, "Only God can make a tree"— probably because it's so hard to figure out how to get the bark on.

 

  What a wonderful thing, to be conscious! I wonder what the people in New Jersey do.

 

   I'm very proud of my gold pocket watch. My grandfather, on his deathbed, sold me this watch.

WORK:

It always does seem to me that I am doing more work than I should do. It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.

It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.

Jerome K. Jerome
