    A few of my FAVORITE QUOTES!!! ;)

    Oooooh FUN, I LOVE this one! ;)

    "Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so." - Bertrand Russell


    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.~ Thomas Jefferson, to Archibald Stuart, 1791"

    "Believe nothing merely because you have been told it." ~ Buddha "

    "Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone." ~ Frederic Bastiat

    "More Law, Less Justice. ~ Cicero"

    "A day in the mountains is worth a mountain of books." & "Going to THE WOODS is like going HOME" ~ John Muir

    "I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect, had intended for us to forgo their use." - Galileo Galilei

    "FREEDOM is not only for YOU, or ME... But even for those YOU DISAGREE WITH! If you can rationalize the taking away of FREEDOMS from those whom you disagree with, then YOU TRULY DON'T BELIEVE IN FREEDOM. Just think, YOUR FREEDOMS could be next, & don't forget, FREEDOM IS FOR EVERYONE not just YOU!" ~ By Me

    "Those who give up liberty for the sake of security deserve neither liberty nor security." ~ Ben Franklin

    "Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed - Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'"
    -Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy

    "All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me - so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer."
    -Homer Simpson

    "You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."
    -Frank Zappa

    Now I got quarters in my loafers tryin' to fight inflation
    When it only used to take a cent....
    Sometimes I wish I was back in my crash pad days before I knew what cash flow meant...
    Seems everybody's joggin' or heavy into health shit
    Don't tell me that I ought to get rolfed..
    'Cause I love cajun martinis and playin' afternoon golf ..


    Lakes below the mountains
    Flow into the sea
    Like oils applied to canvas
    They permeate through me ....

    And there's that one particular harbour
    Sheltered from the wind...
    Where the children play on the shore each day
    And all are safe within

    A govt that abrogates any of the bill of rights,with or without majoritarian approval, forever acts illegitamately, becomes tyrannical, and loses the moral right to govern. Jeff Snyder, Nation of Cowards

    Those who beat their swords into plowshares will plow for the ones who didn't. Thomas Jefferson
