When I started my first job, my father gave me these words of wisdom. “Don’t eat where you $h*t.”

Educate the ignorant, eliminate the stupid.
The biggest problem in the country today, is that those of us who are willing to do are required to carry those who wont.
Eliminate the lazy, the stupid and the whiners and we are all better off.
Just remember, sometimes $#!t floats.
