#9561I never vote for anyone. I always vote against.
-- W.C. Fields
#9562I owe the government $3400 in taxes. So I sent them two hammers and a
toilet seat.
-- Michael McShane
#9563I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as
the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must
not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we
must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts,
in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from
wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they
will be happy.
-- Thomas Jefferson
#9564I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation,
with liberty
and justice for all.
-- Francis Bellamy, 1892
#9565I prefer the most unjust peace to the most righteous war.
-- Cicero

Even peace may be purchased at too high a price.
-- Poor Richard
#9566I realize that the MX missile is none of our concern. I realize that the
whole point of living in a democracy is that we pay professional
congresspersons to concern themselves with things like the MX missile so we
can be free to concern ourselves with getting hold of the plumber.

But from time to time, I feel I must address major public issues such as
this, because in a free and open society, where the very future of the world
hinges on decisions made by our elected leaders, you never win large cash
journalism awards if you stick to the topics I usually write about, such as
-- Dave Barry, "At Last, the Ultimate Deterrent Against
Political Fallout"
#9567I see a good deal of talk from Washington about lowering taxes. I hope
they do get 'em lowered down enough so people can afford to pay 'em.
-- The Best of Will Rogers
#9568I see where we are starting to pay some attention to our neigbors to
the south. We could never understand why Mexico wasn't just crazy about
us; for we have always had their good will, and oil and minerals, at heart.
-- The Best of Will Rogers
#9569I steal.
-- Sam Giancana, explaining his livelihood to his draft board

Easy. I own Chicago. I own Miami. I own Las Vegas.
-- Sam Giancana, when asked what he did for a living
#9570I think the world is run by C students.
-- Al McGuire
