Will Rogers’ sentiments still valid

on Tuesday, 03 April 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions

By: Brenda Harrison

Although Will Rogers died in a plane crash in 1935, his witty comments and advice still seems appropriate 82 years later.

Such as....

“Lord, the money we do spend on government! And it’s not one bit better than the government we got for one-third the money twenty years ago.”

“Taxpayers are sending Congressmen on expensive trips abroad. It might be worth it except they keep coming back.”

“There are men running governments who shouldnt be allowed to play with matches.”

“I can remember way back when a liberal was generous with his own money.”

“A man only learns in two ways, one by reading and the other by association with smarter people.”

“Good judgment comes from experience and a lot to that comes from bad judgment.”

“Alexander Hamilton started the US treasury with nothing, and that is the closest our country has been to being even.”

“The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”

“The short memories of American voters is what keeps our politicians in office.”

“I don’t make jokes. I just watch government and report the facts.”

“The income tax has made liars out of more American than golf.”

“Last year I said, “things can’t go like this, and they didn’t, they got worse.”

“Never miss a good chance to shut up.”

“If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.”

“Everything is funny, as long as it is happening to someone else.”

“People’s minds are changed through observation and not by argument.”

“I’m not a member of an organized political party. I’m a Democrat.”

“A difference of opinion is what makes horse racing and missionaries.”

“Everything is changing. People are taking comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.”

“I bet after seeing us, George Washington would sue us for calling him ‘father’.”

“Things ain’t what they used to be and never was.”

“Never let yesterday take up too much of today.”

“What the country needs now is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds.”
