Father Orthoduck saw this quote on another blog. Are you frustrated with the constant bickering between the parties? Are you tired of the “he said, she said” of current politics? Do you wish the Congress would get about the business of seriously debating legislation, based on real logical principles? Well, you are not the only one. Below is a quote from another blog.
It doesn’t really matter though because it is no longer about what either party accomplishes. This country (including the Party’s, the media, the talking heads, and citizens… and non-citizens) are completely focused on bad mouthing the other side. Liberals vs. Conservatives. Far-left loons vs. Right-wing extremists. Neo-this, neo-that. Blame Bush, Blame Clinton. If the “Left” proposed the idea/solution, then the “Right” must oppose it, vice versa, etc, etc. . . .
But, perhaps if we laugh our way through some of this . . . Here are some quotes from humorist Will Rogers who died in 1935. Father Orthoduck hopes you enjoy them.
A fool and his money are soon elected.
About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.
Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing, and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even.
Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what’s going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate?
Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.
I bet after seeing us, George Washington would sue us for calling him “father.”
I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.
I have a scheme for stopping war. It’s this – no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one.
If I studied all my life, I couldn’t think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of congress.
If you ever injected truth into politics you have no politics.
If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that don’t get wet you can keep.
Last year we said, ‘Things can’t go on like this’, and they didn’t, they got worse.
On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does.
Our constitution protects aliens, drunks and U.S. Senators.
The difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the Democrat is a cannibal, they have to live off each other, while the Republicans, why, they live off the Democrats.
The more you observe politics, the more you’ve got to admit that each party is worse than the other.
The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.
There ought to be one day – just one – when there is open season on senators.
This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.
We don’t seem to be able to check crime, so why not legalize it and then tax it out of business?
