“You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt? The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you.” — Joe Biden
“We’d all like to vote for the best man, but he’s never a candidate.” — Frank McKinney ‘Kin’ Hubbard
“When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.” — Clarence Darrow
“In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant.” — Charles de Gaulle
The biggest spender in the history of history, flush with a brand new letter of credit courtesy of John Boehner and company, wants to go on another spree:
How is President Obama going to stanch the bleeding of red ink and get us on a path of fiscal solvency?

People with an addiction like this are usually forced into a 12-step program, not installed in the Oval Office. More government programs? That’s like hoping for more incurable diseases, the difference being that the diseases might someday be eliminated.
Bad laws are like flatulence. The stench remains long after the need has passed. In New Jersey for example, it’s illegal to delay or detain a homing pigeon. In Washington, it’s a felony to harass a Bigfoot. In Champaigne, Illinois, it’s against the law to pee in your neighbor’s mouth. In Massachusetts, it’s illegal to go to bed without first taking a bath. In the Empire State, jumping off a building is a crime punishable by death. In Texas, it’s a felony to own more than six dildos. And in Hawaii, it’s not permitted to place coins in your ears — a measure that may have been taken in order to prevent a future president from bankrupting the state.
What this country needs is not more laws; it’s fewer lawmakers.
