Additonal Words of the Wise

P J O'Rourke is a humorist, a journalist, and a political commentator whose twisted perspective on the political process appeals to my warped sensibilities. I thought some of his wisdom worth sharing.  

"When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators."

"The mystery of government is not how Washington works, but how to make it stop." 

"A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them." 

"The U.S. Constitution is less than a quarter the length of the owner's manual for a 1998 Toyota Camry, and yet it has managed to keep 300 million or the world's most unruly, passionate, and energetic people safe, prosperous, and free."
