Words From The Past
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. -- Benjamin Franklin (from here)

When the story of the President Barack Obama‘s political career has become history, what should the story be called? I think THE ADVENTURES OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IN THE LAND OF GULLIBLE would be an appropriate title. However, those of us alive … Continue reading
