Well Said

"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, Former Pastor of
Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis , TN

From Mr. Rogers lips to the U.S. President's ears. Please let Mr. Obama understand this. I hope you have a great weekend, and good luck to the dogs.

Well said, and completely unheeded. Another milepost on the road to the decline of Western Civilization. What to do? Go diving or snorkeling in Cayman while there is still time. You might as well..
