Quotable Sunday

Hi all and happy Sunday! It is time for Quotable Sunday....want to join? Just head on over to the ever popular Toni and play along. It is really that simple!
This week my quotes are about government. It does not matter who you voted for we all know that our government sometimes does not know what is right for us. I just want to make it clear that I am not picking sides ....today at least. Enjoy!


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, subsidise it. -- Ronald Reagan

The taxpayers are sending congressmen on expensive trips abroad. It might be worth it except they keep coming back! -- Will Rogers

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. -- P. J. ORourke

Bush gave an interview and he said people will vote for him because 'They've seen me weep, they’ve seen me laugh, and they’ve seen me hug.' These are the same qualifications for a Tickle Me Elmo. -- Bill Maher


The single most exciting thing you encounter in government is competence, because it's so rare.
-- Daniel Patrick Moynihan (as quoted in NY Times, Mar 2, 1976)


If you can't convince them, confuse them.
-- Harry S. Truman

These are wonderful quotes. Because I really needed something to smile about I am choosing this one: Bush gave an interview and he said people will vote for him because 'They've seen me weep, they’ve seen me laugh, and they’ve seen me hug.' These are the same qualifications for a Tickle Me Elmo. -- Bill Maher
