A quote I received that is ever so timely.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. 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. 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 my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

– The late Dr. Adrian Rogers , 1931 to 2005

A very wise man.

Unfortunately, I heard on the radio this morning that a recent poll showed that 62% of Americans polled felt that the government should GIVE everyone food. :mad:

Too bad we don't have a president that thinks that way.

Maybe you are right, but I don't think so.
What I regret is the brotherhood of the "haves".
Thank God we got rid of a president who thinks that way.

I think the original quote is profound, and agree with it completely.
