    Nooooooooooooo! We are all at the hind tit getting our just reward!!

    Government will always lay off the person who actually "Does" his or her job! Or the one who Does have a job that actually "produces" something!

    Non-producing government workers will alway be employed!

    I don't have the author(s) of these, but I thought they were pretty good.

    --------------------------------------------------------------


    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:

    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.

    Here's a very good explanation of entitlements from radio host, Andrew Wilkow. He is on XM Radio at noon.

    "There is simply no way for liberal to, on one hand, claim that all people are created equal and on the other hand, make the claim that person A has rights and person B has resonsibilites, to provide for the rights of person A.

    Liberty cannot occupy the same space as a person A and person B dynamic. If person A asserts they have the right to healthcare and, they demand that person B is responsible to provide said health care, then person A has infringed on the rights of person B and they are therefore not equal. There simply is no quid pro quo. Person A gets the rights on the back of person B. Person B is in debt to person A, and person A is in debt to nobody.


    Liberals who claim to corner the market on "fairness" simply can't reconcile that their policies are anything but fair.

    If you folks like the above, then click this link about a little lesson Davy Crockett learned about entitlements. Yes, that long ago.
