53 laps and counting . . .

On this day, that hopefully will be inauspicious by any other method of accounting, I successfully complete my 53rd lap around that giant fireball at the center of this solar system.

You might have noticed that, on Wednesday, I changed the sub-header of my website just a bit.  I don’t really have a reason for doing it, I just felt like a small change was in order.

Here are some quotes about government, taxes, and other social things that plague our country these days . . .

“Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.” – Dr. Adrian Rogers

No man’s life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session. – Mark Twain (1866 )

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. – Thomas Jefferson

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

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