Since Nov 1, 2000
Proud father of two grown, conservative men. (And now a Grandfather, too!) One is an Architect and one is an Engineer. They never lacked anything, probably had more than most, but they didn't get everything they wanted, and didn't get to do whatever they wanted. God is responsible for how they turned out, but I like to think Mrs. HeadOn and I get a little credit since we tried to raise them how God said we should.
This is something I came up with on my own:
Our main problem is that we stick warning labels on everything.
If someone isn't smart enough to keep their hands and feet out from under a mower deck, maybe they shouldn't have kids.
We've protected the idiots from killing themselves for so long, they have multiplied and are filing lawsuits everywhere.
Some of them are high-ranking elected officials...
This is a quote I found sometime later:
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. -- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
"If it's stupid, more than likely, there is a lawyer or a tax man behind it."
HeadOn, circa 1990
Just before Iraq kicked out U.N. weapons inspectors in 1998, Saddam admitted he had:
At least 3.9 tons of deadly VX nerve gas, along with 805 tons of precursor ingredients for production of more VX.
4,000 tons of ingredients to produce other types of poison gas.
8,500 liters of anthrax.
500 bombs fitted with parachutes for the purpose of delivering poison gas or germ payloads.
550 artillery shells filled with mustard gas.
107,500 casings for chemical weapons.
157 aerial bombs filled with germ agents.
25 missile warheads containing germ agents, including anthrax, aflatoxin, and botulinum.
Again, the above arsenal is NOT what U.S. or European intelligence suspected Baghdad had. These are the WMDs that Saddam himself admitted he had.
Thanks to "Jarhead" for compling this list, and to "Buffettfan" for posting here:
Socialsim is a philosphy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, it's inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. - Winston Churchill
If you choose to depend solely on the government to take care of you, you are a coward and a fool. Never, never, vote for socialists, even if they claim to be sent from God Himself. They aren't. - HeadOn
