  3. After reading about Dubbya vetoing the children's health coverage bill,
    I ran across this:


    "If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the
    newspaper you are misinformed."
    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

    A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the
    support of Paul.
    -.George Bernard Shaw

    Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on
    what to have for dinner.
    -James Bovard, Civil Libertarian (1994)

    Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in
    rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
    -Douglas Casey, Classmate of Bill Clinton at Georgetown University

    Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car
    keys to teenage boys.
    -P.J. O'Rourke, Civil Libertarian

    Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short
    phrases:

    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops
    moving, subsidize it.
    -Ronald Reagan (1986)

    I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.
    -Will Rogers

    If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it
    costs when it's free!
    -P.J. O'Rourke

    In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as
    possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.
    -Voltaire (1764)

    Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean
    politics won't take an interest in you!
    -Pericles (430 B.C.)

    -Unknown

    The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite
    at one end and no responsibility at the other.
    -Ronald Reagan

    The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the
    blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of
    misery.
    -Winston Churchill

    The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the
    taxidermist leaves the skin.
    -Mark Twain

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to
    fill the world with fools.
    -Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.
    -Edward Langley, Artist (1928 - 1995)

    A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong
    enough to take everything you have.

    (If kids really want health care, they should get their
    parents a job at Halliburton -- like everyone else!)

    "Be careful about reading health books.
    You may die of a misprint." -- Mark Twain (1835-1910)
