"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

Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear

I am feeling a bit reflective today. It has almost been two months since Bill's surgery and I think perhaps I am a bit exhausted. I hope to come back to my thoughts but for now, I am thinking of Peter and Paul and robbing one to pay the other, and smiling, as I wonder what happens when neither has any more money to rob? Sigh.
