    Now that is funny.

    Anyhow, quotes are real nice and all, but sometimes the truth speaks a little louder than the words.

    For Example:



    Quote:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    Signed by the Founding Fathers, most of whom were slave owners like Thomas Jefferson & George Washington to name two.


    My personal favorite though:

    "When school children start paying union dues, that 's when I'll start representing the interests of school children. "

    Albert Shanker - President of the Teachers Union 1974-1997
