THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
As Yogi Berra said: "No one goes there anymore; it's too crowded".
If nothing ever sticks to Teflon, how do they make Teflon stick to the pan?
If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?
 If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?
What was the best thing before sliced bread? 
How can there be "self-help" groups?              
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
~Abraham Lincoln

So, what have we learned in 2072 years? (Apparently not
 much!)"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be
refilled, public debt should be reduced,the arrogance of
 officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the 
assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest 
Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, 
instead of living on public assistance."
 
                      Cicero - 55 BC

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger?  By what means shall we fortify against it? 
Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow?
Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth
(our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander,
could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, 
in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected?
I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. 
If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. 
As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."              
 ~Abraham Lincoln, [Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois 
(January 27, 1838)].
