  1. #1

    How do you know when there's "too much" government?

    Q: How do you know when there's "too much" government?

    A: When the bureaucracy has 4-star generals in the War on Garbage.

    BTW, what do you suppose "Comm." means?

    "Commodore" or "Commander"?

    (I would think "Commander" should be "Cmdr.".)

    Is there any at all? Then it’s too much.

    "Government ... does not exist of necessity, but rather by virtue of a tragic, almost comical combination of klutzy, opportunistic terrorism against sitting ducks whom it pretends to shelter, plus our childish phobia of responsibility, praying to be exempted from the hard reality of life on life's terms." Wolf DeVoon
