"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

I really

like these trees with the trunk that is green.  I haven't looked up what kind of tree they are but I see them a good deal in El Paso and think perhaps someday we will plant a few of them on the farm.

They are Palo Verde trees. They grow all over the southwest. In the springtime they have yellow flowers all over them. They also have stickers, but not really bad ones.
