More Will Rogers Quotes

Mostly about our government:
~ I like to make jokes and kid about the Senators. They are a never ending source of amusement, amazement, and discouragement. But the rascals, when you meet 'em They are mighty nice fellows. It must be something in the office that makes them so ornery sometimes. What you see what they do official, you want to shoot 'em. But when he looks at you and grins so innocently, you kinder want to kiss him.

(Remember, he was writing this stuff in the late 20s and early 30s)

~ Shrewdness in public life all over the world is always honored, while honesty in public men is generally attributed to dumbness and seldom rewarded.

~ The Democrats are having a lot of fun exposing the Republican campaign corruption, but they would have a lot more fun if they knew where they could lay their hands on some of it themselves for next November.

~ So much money is being spent on the campaigns that I doubt if either man, as good as they are, are worth what it will cost to elect them.

~ There is one rule that works in every calamity. Be it pestilence, war, or famine. the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The poor even help arrange it.

~ Big business don't go broke any more. The minute it looks bad for them, they combine with something else and issue more stock.

~ This open-door stuff is a lot of hooey, any door is only open to those that have the best product at the cheapest money.
