"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Know what's Great?

The sound that the flag makes blowing in the wind...

Simple things do make a wonderful life.

I love to see HUGE American flags blowing in the breeze....one a couple of miles from here can be seen on the long road home for miles!!

Makes my heart proud for America....

And to pray that this flag and its meaning remain for our lifetimes!!
