****The Official Friday Silliness Thread****

Posted on 02/06/2009 4:38:06 AM PST by Lucky9teen


No matter how much you cheat the government in taxes, you'll never get close to being even. Trust me. (Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary's proverb)

Good intentions make the most noise. (Proverb of Obama's Economic Recovery Team)

All good things are either illegal, immoral, or lead to obesity. (Kennedy family proverb)

Surely you can fool all the people all the time. (Proverb of the mainstream media)

To err is human, and we use this faculty frequently and with much pleasure. (Proverb of the US Congress)

All work and no pay makes Jack an exemplary citizen. (Proverb of Obama's Economic Recovery Team)

If toast falling off the table always lands butter-side down, it is safe to presume that toast buttered on both sides will stop and hover in midair. (Proverb of Obama's Economic Recovery Team)

All that glitters must be taxed. (Proverb of the Ways and Means Committee)

Every time the government tries to organize the economy, the only thing that stays organized is crime. (Proverb of the Chicago Mafia)

The people are not only our most precious recourse, but also a means of enrichment. (Proverb of the US Congress)

Too many cooks don't pay enough taxes. (Proverb of the Ways and Means Committee)

Every man has a right to the left. (ACLU proverb)

Every rake deserves a chance to be stepped on repeatedly. (Proverb of Obama's Economic Recovery Team)

For a lie to become believable it must be published in The New York Times. (Proverb of Democrat strategists)

Teach someone how to fish, and you lose a Democrat voter. (Proverb of the Teachers' Union )

You will be driving your old car for a longer period of time if you don't buy a new one. (Proverb of Obama's Economic Recovery Team)

Never spend your own money when you can spend the government's. Charity begins with a lawsuit. (Proverb of community organizers)

Let bygones be hammered into everyone's brain using news media, television, and Hollywood. (Proverb of Democrat strategists)

Government helps those who refuse to help themselves. (Proverb of community organizers)

If necessity is the mother of invention, government mandate is the fairy godmother. (Proverb of carbon emission regulators)

A bad workman blames corporate greed and lack of government oversight. (Proverb of the Financial Services Committee)

All that glitters must be equally redistributed to each according to his need. (Proverb of community organizers)

Never pick on a Democrat candidate's family; attack something he cares about instead. (Proverb of Republican strategists)

If you can't lick them, tax them. (Proverb of the Ways and Means Committee)

He who pays the piper must also cover his health insurance and retirement benefits. (Proverb of Obama's Economic Recovery Team)

Give your opponents one hundred dollars worth of steak, and you shall receive one trillion dollars worth of pork. (Proverb of the US Congress)

The difference between a kleptomaniac and a Congressman is mostly one of semantics. (Proverb of the US Congress)

Don't tax you, don't tax me, tax that fellow who didn't vote for you and me. (Found buried in a federal "stimulus" bill)

All it takes to prove that I am the smartest guy in any room is for the rest of the people in that room to believe me when I say it. (Joe Biden's proverb)

President Obama said when it comes to passing the stimulus package we can’t afford distractions and delays. You know who took offense to this in Congress? The head of the Senate Distractions and Delays Committee.'

To Democrats, IRS means, “I’m really sorry.”

Obama is a genius. Whenever he nominates someone, they pay their taxes. He’s found a way to eliminate the deficit — nominate everyone in the country, one person at a time, and they’ll pay their taxes.

President Obama is working very hard to get the stimulus passed. He has asked the Senate to cut $50 billion from the plan. He said we no longer would need the $50 billion once everyone in his Cabinet pays his taxes.

It seems that not a day goes by without Americans hearing about President Barack Obama’s nominations for cabinet positions who are nothing more than tax-and-spend liberals who don’t believe they should have to pay their “fair share” of taxes.

In fact, it seems the most liberal of our elected officials have trouble forking over their bucks to the US government including the man who is destined to head the Treasury Department and a House of Representatives stalwart who’s always demanding higher taxes.

Would the US government, the news media and the Justice Department be so understanding with non-political citizens? I think not.

In December 2005 and January 2006, I covered the federal trial of rock star Ronald Isley of the phenomenal Isley Brothers band. Below is one article I wrote for the now-defunct Conservative Voice with regard to his 26-year prison sentence. Apparently, the government and the news media were not so forgiving. Too bad, Isley didn’t volunteer to help the Democrat Party.

I think the quiz is misleading. My “8% socialist” probably comes from the fact that I am not laissez-faire on drugs and prostitution. I do not characterize those things as “capitalist” issues — they are Libertarian issues. I’m not a Libertarian.

Harry Reid walked into a bar in D.C. along with a donkey.

The bartender looked up and said, “Hey, buddy, you can’t bring that creature in here.”

“I can’t help it. He just keeps following me everywhere, said the donkey.”

That's perfect. That very idea's been rattling around the box of loose screws that is my think-box for days.

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine... And those who don’t.

As Ben Franklin said:

In wine there is wisdom,
In beer there is freedom,
In water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we
drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more
than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - bacteria
found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila,
rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification
process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember:
Water = Poop,
Wine = Health .

Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid,
than to drink water and be full of shit ..

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information:
I’m doing it as a public service.

Where are we going wrong? We are only 92% Capitalist. I always thought that I did not have a Socialist bone in my body. Is there a therapy class that we can go to to fix this problem?

The quiz was written so that every question you checked off was a pro-capitalist answer. Look at the questions you did not check and meditate on them for a while. It seems to me that this test is biased towards the libertarian posistion (all drugs and prostitutes should be legal).

Ahhh, I only read it once. Aint sure I could make it through three times consecutively. But if that is what it takes, I break the book out. I have it in my library. I like the story line, but Rand is kinda wordy. I am a get to the point kind of person. :-)
