Keep the ball low, don’t leave your crayons in the sun, use dental floss every day, don’t spill the shoe polish, always knock before entering, don’t let the ants get in the sugar, never volunteer to be a program chairman, always get your first serve in, and feed your dog whenever he’s hungry.
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.
~H. L. Mencken
There is no greater importance in all the world like knowing you are right and that the wave of the world is wrong, yet the wave crashes upon you.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
~ Benjamin Franklin

& my signature...........
My signature needs a little knowledge of the ignorance & arrogance of religious fanatics of any historical time period.
The following appeals to the Pavlovian method of child rearing, which was taken to heart by Joseph Goebbles.
He was an educated man, although his application of his education was, to say the least, criminal.---
St. Ignatius of Loyola, the found of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) or St. Francis Xavier, first missionary to India who assisted Ignatius in the formation of the Jesuits.
"Give me the child, and I will mould the man."
"Give me the child for seven years,
and I will give you the man."
"Give me the child until he is
seven and I care not who has him thereafter."
"Give me the child till the age of seven
and I will show you the man."
Obviously applied to the Hitler Youth program by Goebbles.
Another saying is "You are what you eat."
Filling your body with junk food will result in problems.
Filling your MIND with junk will result in suicide bombings,walking into a school & killing little children,& God only knows what other kinds of atrocities.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

I was putting in a septic system once upon a time.
The inspector was a prick.
I knew that.
I spent hours getting the distribution box perfect.
He wanted line 1 to take water first.
Line2 next, etc. up to line 6.
It was perfect when I got done with it.
He inspects it.
His smartass answer was, "Even a blind hog can find an acorn sometimes."
I felt like hitting him with a shovel like Clevon Little hit Slim Pickens after the quicksand episode in Blazing Saddles.
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
