Bumping for r'Evolution

Will Rogers on government

"With Congress, every time they make a joke, it's a law. And every time they make a law, it's a joke."

"I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts."

"Lord, the money we do spend on government and it's not one bit better than the government we got for one-third the money 20 years ago."

"Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

"A fool and his money are soon elected."

"I have a scheme for stopping war. It's this - no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one."

"If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all that don't get wet you can keep."

"The more you observe politics, the more you've got to admit that each party is worse than the other."

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

Have you heard the one . . .

The Los Angeles Police Department, the FBI, and the CIA are all trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The President decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it.

The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After 3 months of extensive investigation, they conclude that rabbits do not exist.

The FBI goes in. After 2 weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The rabbit had it coming.

The LAPD goes in. They come out 2 hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!"

Update!

Gun rights activists have filed a legal action claiming that their right to arm bears has been infringed by the LAPD.

Final ruling from the Supreme Court: case dismissed; the Second Amendment only protects the right to bare arms.

Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity immediately praised the ruling and contrasted it to Muslim governments which cut off the hands of thieves, depriving them of the right to bare arms.

Spokesmen for the CIA declined to comment on reports that rendition of suspected terrorists to black sites has been used to circumvent prohibitions on such removal of body parts during their "enhanced interrogation" procedures.

That's good. Do you have any

That's good. Do you have any more?

Here's another

A guy traveling through Mexico on vacation lost his wallet and all of his identification.

Cutting his trip short, he attempted to make his way home but was stopped by the U.S. Customs Agent at the border.

"May I see your identification, please?" asked the agent.

"I'm sorry, but I lost my wallet."

"Sure buddy, I hear that every day. No ID, no entry."

"But I can prove I'm an American!" the guy exclaimed. "I have a picture of Ronald Reagan tattooed on one side of my butt and George Bush on the other."

"This I gotta see."

So the guy dropped his pants and showed the agent his behind.

"By golly, you're right!" exclaimed the agent. "All right, you're free to enter -- and have a safe trip back to Chicago."

"Thanks! But how did you know I was from Chicago?"

"I recognized Obama in the middle."

Thanks

good stuff!

Causing for more than 2

Causing for more than 2 centuries? How about since the beginning of time? Government has NEVER got it right.

"Human beings with love and compassion are some of the most beautiful creatures in the universe... Those without are a plague on us all."

True,

Reagan used humor well, shame he ended up going the wrong direction on a lot of things. Maybe the bullet in his stomach at the start from a "crazy man" deterred him a little.

that crazy man who shot Reagan his parents were strong
supporters of G.H. Bush and were suppose to have dinner
with Bush that night coincidence huh.
Reagan sold his soul to the NWO when picking Bush Sr.

"Freedom is a right that can never be won in war,only by each individual "

This idea occured to me

the other day, as i was listening to this speech by Lew Rockwell - a couple gems in this one - Our Weapon of Mass Creation - Lew Rockwell - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSLKIkrNEWs

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

I hope this makes front page

because I think humor works at breaking down controversial subjects in such a way to make people see a different perspective.

Trust Government to Find ways to help themselves to the fruits of YOUR labor.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

Milton Freedman said it best

"There's nothing more permananent than a temporary government program."

"Free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions." Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions of 1798

This is a really powerful video!!

In a social setting it's a lot easier to "wake someone up" by them being part of a group of people laughing at the government together rather being cornered by you and dragged into a long conversation about why we'll all be in FEMA camps by 2012.

Most of the "positive" threads do not get much action around here but I hope people take a look at this thread and watch the video, it really is powerful information.

How was copper wire invented?

How was copper wire invented? Two government bureaucrats fighting over your last penny.

Can the Federal Reserve create a debt so big that even the Fed can't carry it?

How many Federal Reserve Employees does it take to create a trillion dollars? A thousand, one to enter the number into the computer and 1000 to collect handsome salaries and never ending benefits.

The War between the States destroyed the union of states and create a federal government. What did the Seventeenth Amendment do? It finished the paperwork.

The devil visited a politician's office and made him an offer. "I can arrange some things for you, " the devil said. "I'll increase your income ten-fold. Children and babies will love you; your voters will respect you; you'll have sponsors for any bill you propose and you'll live to be a hundred. All I require in return is that you drive the country into bankruptcy" The politician considered and asked, "What's the catch?"

LOL!

A politician walked into a bar with a duck under his arm. The bartender saw them and said, "Hey, what are you doing bringing that pig in here?" The politician answered, "That's not a pig; it's a duck." And the bartender replied, "I was talking to the duck!"
