Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. 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 the 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 friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

But did you not at least admire the person who did it?

No.  I thought it would have been much better if everyone got a participation trophy.  I went to school just as long as they did.  And watching them receive that honor scarred me emotionally for years afterward.

My school did not recognize me as valedictorian but my dad didn’t buy a billboard. But I’ll bet he was pissed about it. He was a really frugal man.
