There's one that took me by surprise:

"When I die I hope to go to Heaven, whatever the hell that is."

That's uncharacteristically witty but I guess it's just the broken clock syndrome.


I like it.  It occurred to me this might even be better: "When I die I hope to go to Heaven, wherever the hell that is."

Among the comments I've noted this one:


Quote:
Excellent compilation! The only one missing is her 22nd and final Christmas card where she thanks God for the Social Security checks preventing her from starving on the street.



How true!

This reminds me of something Warren Buffett said.  (I like old Warren, even though he is an atheist.  He is a benevolent, non-evangelical atheist who troubles no one with his beliefs and is willing to let others have theirs without comment from him.  I respect that.)

Warren Buffett favors a progressive income tax.  He favors inheritance taxes that include a reasonably generous exemption (current one is an estate of about $5.5 million, I think.)  He said once, and this is a paraphrase, something very much akin to what you just posted.  It went something like this: "To those  who object to paying income taxes because they're self made successes I would say, move to Bangladesh or Russia or some place like that.  Start over with whatever you started with here.  And you'll find out just how much being in the USA contributed to your "self made success."

So even though I do think you (Bowhunter) are (with all due respect) a conceited, thin skinned, asshole, I do agree with you on many things.  This is but one.  There have been others.

Sieg Heil,
Elmer "Bonehead Theologian" Fudd

Is there a T-shirt for the Bonehead Theologian Club?


I want to buy one for Richard Dawkins.

No, but we need one.  I have also formed a state chapter of the American Association of Zimbabwean Trillionaires and need T-shirts for that, too.  Maybe I can get a bulk deal.

Maybe some red hats with this slogan Like "Make Trumpettes Smarter."

So, ;et me understand : iiif I live in a good society and utilize the opportunities which it offers to my advantage, this gives all and any of those either or unwilling or unable to utilize said
opportunities the right to demand my money or services.     Cool
