Quote of the Day

Postby 8uck5nort » Fri Feb 20, 2009 9:48 am

Found this and it struck me as 200+ year old wisdom we as a nation are now seeming to ignore.

"Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence; it is force. And like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master".

- George Washington

Sounds like Ronald Reagan. I miss the Gipper.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.

It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will feed himself and his family for life.

Here's a variation of this:
 
"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will hang out in boats all day, drinking beer, telling lies, and otherwise being a non-productive member of society.."  [:D]

STATEMENTS MADE BY THE LATE DR. ADRIAN ROGERS OF BELLEVUE BAPTIST
CHURCH , MEMPHIS , TENNESSEE :



You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy
out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another
person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody, anything that the government
does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work
because the other half is going to take care of them, and when that
other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody
else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is
about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. [/align]
Hunt Hard,
