    "No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby." H. L Mencken 'Notes On Journalism' in the Chicago Tribune (19 September 1926)

    The only thing I'm waiting for is to throw those bottles back...I'll probably be waiting the rest of my life for that.

    Unfortunately, I think our Progressive citizens have learned quite a bit and are using what they have learned to go far beyond the concerns in the cartoon and about half our citizens are too stupid, too lazy or too much entitled special snowflakes to fight this dismantling and destruction of our great experiment.

    Great post though. Thanks for posting it.

    Membership in the FSA will cost you. Yet, amazingly, the ranks continue to swell because they value what they get higher than what they have to pay to get it.

    I am only selling locally harvested, organically grow, and cold pressed snake oil.

    Snake oil by any other name stinks as sweetly. (With no apologies to The Bard).
