Friday Funny July 19, 2019 A Dose of Will Rogers

Happy Friday!  As we come to the end of another week, it seems like a good time to reflect on some words of a wise man from a few years back.


What the country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds.

Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.

Rail splitting produced an immortal President in Abraham Lincoln; but golf, with 20 thousand courses, hasn’t produced even a good, A number-1 Congressman.

There is no credit to being a comedian, when you have the whole Government working for you. All you have to do is report the facts. I don’t even have to exaggerate.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.

The more you observe politics, the more you’ve got to admit that each party is worse than the other.

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Rumor travels faster, but it don’t stay put as long as truth.

Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for. 

Congress is so strange; a man gets up to speak and says nothing, nobody listens, and then everybody disagrees. 

Never blame a legislative body for not doing something. When they do nothing, they don’t hurt anybody. When they do something is when they become dangerous. 


“Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.” ~John Quinton
