"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

Last week

my sister texted me and asked me if I knew so and so.  By now this style text means that someone has died.

A former high school classmate of mine passed away in an auto accident.

I am deeply saddened.  I read the newspaper article about the accident online and realized that my his death was preventable.  The police stated that if he had worn his seatbelt he would have survived.

I think with that I will end this post.
