I'm Back!

OK, I still haven't decided quite how depressed to be (there's certainly more cause for it emerging daily), but I did find a quote from the late Dr. Adrian Rogers that seems awfully appropriate these days:

“Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving it. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

“And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation."

How true, and how sad that it even needs to be said,
