#1441We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.
#1442We all live in a state of ambitious poverty.
-- Decimus Junius Juvenalis
#1443We are not a loved organization, but we are a respected one.
-- John Fisher
#1444 We have some absolutely irrefutable statistics to show exactly why
you are so tired.
There are not as many people actually working as you may have thought.
The population of this country is 200 million. 84 million are over
60 years of age, which leaves 116 million to do the work. People under 20
years of age total 75 million, which leaves 41 million to do the work.
There are 22 million who are employed by the government, which leaves
19 million to do the work. Four million are in the Armed Services, which
leaves 15 million to do the work. Deduct 14,800,000, the number in the state
and city offices, leaving 200,000 to do the work. There are 188,000 in
hospitals, insane asylums, etc., so that leaves 12,000 to do the work.
Now it may interest you to know that there are 11,998 people in jail,
so that leaves just 2 people to carry the load. That is you and me, and
brother, I'm getting tired of doing everything myself!
#1445"We maintain that the very foundation of our way of life is what we call
free enterprise," said Cash McCall, "but when one of our citizens
show enough free enterprise to pile up a little of that profit, we do
our best to make him feel that he ought to be ashamed of himself."
-- Cameron Hawley
#1446We were so poor that we thought new clothes meant someone had died.
#1447We were so poor we couldn't afford a watchdog. If we heard a noise at night,
we'd bark ourselves.
-- Crazy Jimmy
#1448We're living in a golden age. All you need is gold.
-- D.W. Robertson.
#1449Weekend, where are you?
#1450What good is a ticket to the good life, if you can't find the entrance?
