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.”

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

My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson

to take it all away.”

“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
assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than
prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence
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.”

- Thomas Jefferson (Proposal Virginia Constitution, 1 T. Jefferson Papers,
334 C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950)

“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have
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
