    And it’s always ‘Wrangling’ with the other genes.

    The end doesn’t justify the genes.

    But it denies it had its hand in other genes’.

    Ain’t it the truth? The next revolution in this country will be fought over taxes. To paraphrase Will Rogers, “a politician never met a tax he didn’t like.”

    now that we know can we genetically engineer that gene so that they quit lying, quit stealing, and quit taxing? – oh sorry I repeated myself with that last one :)

    This is paraphrased from Jack London’s description of a scab, but since the description easily fits politicians I’m going to use it anyway. =)

    “After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, the vampire, He had some awful substance left with which He made a politician.A politician is a two-legged animal with a cork-screw soul, a water-logged brain, a combination backbone of jelly and glue. Where others have hearts, he carries a tumor of rotten principles.When a politician comes down the street, men turn their backs and angels weep in heaven, and the Devil shuts the gates of Hell to keep him out.No man has a right to politics so long as there is a pool of water to drown his carcass in, or a rope long enough to hang his body with. Judas Iscariot was a gentleman compared with a politician. For betraying his master, he had character enough to hang himself. A politician has not.Esau sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. Judas Iscariot sold his Savior for thirty pieces of silver. Benedict Arnold sold his country for a promise of a commission in the British Army. The modern politician sells his birthright, his country, his wife, his children and his fellow men for an unfulfilled promise to his constituency.Esau was a traitor to himself: Judas Iscariot was a traitor to his God; Benedict Arnold was a traitor to his country; a politician is a traitor to his God, his country, his wife, his family and his class.”

    Kerovan: I don’t care if it is paraphrased, it couldn’t be more accurate in this day in age.
    Many kudos to you ! !

    How do you tell a male chromosome from a female chromosome?

    Pull down its genes.

    WHAT other genes?
    Tierney (expect a slap if that’s the one!)?

    What about Rayburn or Hackman?

    Thank goodness no one has made any references to Obama or the Tea Party.

    Old joke: Last winter it was so cold in D. C. that politicians were walking around with their hands in their OWN pockets.
