Observations Over Time

time, old, clocks, HD wallpaper

 

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.
-John Adams-

If you don’t read the newspaper, you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.
-Mark Twain-

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself.
-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-

A liberal is someone who feels a   great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money.
-G Gordon Liddy-

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

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

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.   
-PJ. O’Rourke-
Civil Libertarian

Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense   of everybody else.
-Frederic Bastiat- 
French Economist (1801-1850)

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-

 

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-

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.)

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

Talk is cheap, except when Congress does it.
-Anonymous-

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)

There is no distinctly Native American criminal class, save Congress.
-Mark Twain-

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.
-Thomas Jefferson-

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
-Aesop-


FIVE BEST SENTENCES

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.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

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 is the beginning of the end of any nation!

ON MY SOAPBOX…Life needs a rewind button

Heavens to Murgatroyd….was an expression popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss, a regular on the Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s. Murgatroyd!  Do you remember that word?

Tell a youngster that in your youth, you drove a Jalopy. They will be totally confused and ask, “What is a Jalopy?”

Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and get a Chuckle from it.

Some old expressions have become obsolete because of the unstoppable invasion of technology.  These phrases included:  A kodak moment, Don’t touch that dial, Carbon copy, You sound like a broken record, and Hung out to dry.

Back in the olden days we had a lot of  moxie.  We’d put on our best bib and tucker, to straighten up and fly right.

Heavens to Betsy!  Gee whillikers!  Jumping Jehoshaphat!  Holy Moley!

We were  in like Flynn and  living the life of Riley; behind our backs we may have been called a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill.  But not to our face….Not for all the tea in China!

Remember when life was SWELL? When is the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and pedal pushers.

Kilroy was here…..but he isn’t anymore.

Earliest human drawing discovered in South African cave

We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, “Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle!” We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed as common as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues, pens and  keyboards.

Poof,  go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind.  We blink, and they’re gone.  Where have all those great phrases gone?

Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it.  Hey!  It’s your nickel.  Don’t forget to pull the chain.  Knee high to a grasshopper.  Well, Fiddlesticks!  Going like sixty. Okidoki, I’ll see you in the funny papers.  Don’t take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses.

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff! (Carter’s Little Liver Pills are gone too!)

Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth.

See ya later, alligator!

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS PAST. NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN.  WE WERE GIVEN A PRECIOUS GIFT:  BEING BLESSED TO LIVE IN AMERICA WHEN ALL AMERICANS LOVED OUR COUNTRY. THANKS TO THE DEDICATION AND MORALS HANDED DOWN TO US BY THE “GREATEST GENERATION!”

Laughs for today…

Good Ones

The Gator-back Rocks of Mars
Image Credit: NASA, JPL-Caltech, MSSS

Explanation: Wind-sharpened rocks known as ventifacts, cover this broad sloping plain in the foot hills of Mount Sharp, Gale crater, Mars. Dubbed gator-back rocks their rugged, scaly appearance is captured in these digitally stitched Mastcam frames from the Curiosity rover on mission sol 3,415 (March 15, 2022). Driving over gator-back rocks before has resulted in damage to the rover’s wheels, so Curiosity team members decided to turn around and take another path to continue the rover’s climb. Curiosity has been on an ascent of Gale crater’s central 5.5 kilometer high mountain since 2014. As it climbs, it’s been able to study layers shaped by water on Mars billions of years ago.
