“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” - Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), March 20, 2006

Do you believe in sin?
What is sin?
Being out of alignment with my values.
For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes.

30 "A horrible and shocking thing
has happened in the land:
31 The prophets prophesy lies,
the priests rule by their own authority,
and my people love it this way.
But what will you do in the end?
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it...
3The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?
4Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted
among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these
ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to
institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and
organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely
to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate
that Governments long established should not be changed for light and
transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that
mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to
right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably
the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute
Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such
Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
2nd paragraph, Declaration of Independence, 1774
"The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation

"By intervening directly and depriving society of its responsibility, the social
assistance state leads to a loss of human energies and an inordinate increase of
public agencies, which are dominated more by bureaucratic ways of thinking than
by concern for serving their clients."

This quote made me think of something a friend of mine had to deal with Saturday night.
He went to help a single mother who couldn't get ahold of anyone all day long at the Tulsa Housing Authority's emergency number. She had a leak at her hot water tank and sewage coming out of her toilet, and her's was the last apartment in the row, so anytime anyone else flushed...
"Given the choice between a Republican and
someone who acts like a Republican, people will vote for the real
Republican all the time" - Harry S Truman
This works for the last two elections we've had as well McCain vs. Obama, and Bartlett vs. Adelson.I think this is an equally valid quote "Why vote for Shampoo when you can get the real thing"

"Let me get this straight. We're going to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, signed by a president that also hasn't read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's nearly broke." - Unknown
I thought I had read this before elsewhere... Thanks Tulsa Chiggers

We went to Woolaroc yesterday, this was posted under a bronze sculpture of Abvraham Lincoln.
Property is the
fruit of labor...property is desirable...is a positive good in the
world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and
hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who
is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor
diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his
own shall be safe from violence when built. - Abraham Lincoln

1944 and 1948
