Random quotes

Random quotes that I enjoyed (some are political, but seem to make common sense):

"Some people are so used to special treatment that equal treatment is considered to be discrimination." -- Thomas Sowell in Random thoughts on the passing scene

An economics professor at a junior college said, "'If you're going to pay me $50,000 a year to solve a problem, I'm sure not going to solve it and lose a good job.' [there's probably been a little inflation since he said this! rlv] ... Once people go into the business of solving a problem, you can be [expletive deleted] sure the problem won't be solved." -- Charley Reese in A problem that can't be solved

"Life is the garment we constantly alter but never seems to fit." -- quoted by Charles Swindoll and, I think, attributed to a David McCord

"When Baptists surrender their belief in the Bible as the Word of God, they have yielded the last logical reason for their existence." -- T. T. Shields in What Baptists Stand For

Not a quote, but a political cartoon: Two U.S. Border Patrol agents are sitting in their truck. One says, "We should deport them all." His partner replies, "You can't deport the U.S. Senate." OUCH!

"You can't deport the U.S. Senate."
No, but wouldn't it be nice if we could FIRE them?
Unfortunately, political vacuums are usually filled with opportunists, not visionaries.
