Today's Founders Quote: Governing Oneself and Others

"Sometimes it is said that man can not be trusted with government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question."

- Thomas Jefferson, 1801.

     Again, a very perninent observation from our third President.  Many people , including some in DC, can't seem to keep their own shit straight.  If that's the case, it makes it nearly impossible for them to take care of others.  How do we know who to believe.  Sometimes, you can't.. It's a crapshoot.  If you're lucky, there will be candidates who have proven themselves previously.  If not, cross your fingers and wish.

     Speaking of wishing, having Tracey McCall (no relation to Glenn) govern our affairs would be sweet.  Dark hair and blue eyes - sweet!
