And now for some comments from some famous people...

‘‘Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who didn’t.’’ -Ben Franklin

"Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself." - Mark Twain

“Washington is a stud farm for every jackass in the country.” - Mark Twain

"This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer." -Will Rogers

Which goes to show that things haven't changed as much as we thought over the years...

If you like those, you ought to Google "H.R. Mencken quotes."

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right.

It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office.

The well of Mencken quotes is deep and cold!

I like some of his, but I am usually not so serious.

"There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you."
- Will Rogers

"The United States has become a place where entertainers and professional athletes are mistaken for people of importance."
-Robert A. Heinlein
