A Timely Reminder

Or three, considering the occassion:

"No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session." - Gideon J. Tucker

"This country has come to feel the same when congress is in session as when a baby gets hold of a hammer." - Will Rogers

"The difference between death and taxes is death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets". - Will Rogers

And a few of my favorites:

"Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing -- and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even."
-Will Rogers

"There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you."
- Will Rogers

"Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."
- Mark Twain

“Washington is a stud farm for every jackass in the country.”
- Mark Twain

"It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress."
-Mark Twain
