    if you dont want to work, become a reporter. that awful power, the public opinion of the nation, was created by a horde of self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditch digging and shoemaking and fetched up journalism on their way to the poorhouse.

    "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" asked Alice.
    "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
    "I don't much care where …" said Alice.
    "Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

    i wasnt directing the question at you, it was just in general. i dont remeber where i first heard that quote but i dont like it. people that make stupid decisions are looked at as less fortunate. i dont agree with this. this is where my right wing side comes out. if youre willing to help yourself, im willing to help you help yourself. if youre looking for a hand out, dont expect shit from me. i have no problem walking by someone that isnt trying to better themselves.

    I love PJ O'Rourke even though I disagree with him on a few things.
    C&P. sue me.

    ***

    A hat should be taken off when you greet a lady and left off for the rest of your life. Nothing looks more stupid than a hat.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    A very quiet and tasteful way to be famous is to have a famous relative. Then you can not only be nothing, you can do nothing too.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    After all, what is your host's purpose in having a party? Surely not for you to enjoy yourself; if that were their sole purpose, they'd have simply sent champagne and women over to your place by taxi.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    America wasn't founded so that we could all be better. America was founded so we could all be anything we damned well pleased.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Because of their size, parents may be difficult to discipline properly.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Cleanliness becomes more important when godliness is unlikely.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Earnestness is stupidity sent to college.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Even very young children need to be informed about dying. Explain the concept of death very carefully to your child. This will make threatening him with it much more effective.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy, the whores are us.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Everybody knows how to raise children, except the people who have them.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Family love is messy, clinging, and of an annoying and repetitive pattern, like bad wallpaper.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Feeling good about government is like looking on the bright side of any catastrophe. When you quit looking on the bright side, the catastrophe is still there.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Gossip is what you say about the objects of flattery when they aren't present.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Government proposes, bureaucracy disposes. And the bureaucracy must dispose of government proposals by dumping them on us.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    I like to think of my behavior in the sixties as a "learning experience." Then again, I like to think of anything stupid I've done as a "learning experience." It makes me feel less stupid.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Ideology, politics and journalism, which luxuriate in failure, are impotent in the face of hope and joy.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    If government were a product, selling it would be illegal.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    If you are young and you drink a great deal it will spoil your health, slow your mind, make you fat - in other words, turn you into an adult.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    If you say a modern celebrity is an adulterer, a pervert and a drug addict, all it means is that you've read his autobiography.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    In our brief national history we have shot four of our presidents, worried five of them to death, impeached one and hounded another out of office. And when all else fails, we hold an election and assassinate their character.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Let's reintroduce corporal punishment in the schools - and use it on the teachers.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Making fun of born-again Christians is like hunting dairy cows with a high powered rifle and scope.

    P. J. O'Rourke

    Never wear anything that panics the cat.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Politics are for foreigners with their endless wrongs and paltry rights. Politics are a lousy way to get things done. Politics are, like God's infinite mercy, a last resort.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Seriousness is stupidity sent to college.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Social Security is a government program with a constituency made up of the old, the near old and those who hope or fear to grow old. After 215 years of trying, we have finally discovered a special interest that includes 100 percent of the population. Now we can vote ourselves rich.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Staying married may have long-term benefits. You can elicit much more sympathy from friends over a bad marriage than you ever can from a good divorce.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    The Clinton administration launched an attack on people in Texas because those people were religious nuts with guns. Hell, this country was founded by religious nuts with guns. Who does Bill Clinton think stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock?
    P. J. O'Rourke

    The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    The mystery of government is not how Washington works but how to make it stop.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    The weirder you're going to behave, the more normal you should look. It works in reverse, too. When I see a kid with three or four rings in his nose, I know there is absolutely nothing extraordinary about that person.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    There are a number of mechanical devices which increase sexual arousal, particularly in women. Chief among these is the Mercedes-Benz 380SL convertible.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    There is one thing women can never take away from men. We die sooner.

    P. J. O'Rourke

    There's something about Marxism that brings out warts; the only kind of growth this economic system encourages.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    Whatever it is that the government does, sensible Americans would prefer that the government do it to somebody else. This is the idea behind foreign policy.

    When a couple decide to divorce, they should inform both sets of parents before having a party and telling all their friends. This is not only courteous but practical. Parents may be very willing to pitch in with comments, criticism and malicious gossip of their own to help the divorce along.
    P. J. O'Rourke

    When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.

    Ok, its requires reading in context with the long story that precedes the quote. It relates to a disabled boy, a subject matter which does not always sit well with people or make them comfortable.

    "I think life should be more like tv. I think all of life's problems ought to be solved in 30 minutes with simple homilies, don't you? I think weight and oral hygiene ought to be our biggest concerns. I think we should all have powerful, high-paying jobs, and everyone should drive fancy sports cars. All our desires should be instantly gratified. Women should always wear tight clothes, and men should carry powerful handguns. Life overall should be more glamorous, thrill-packed, and filled with applause, don't you think? "

    i think i just read it a few minutes ago. i dont have a problem helping less fortunate people. people that cannot for whatever reason help themselves. the problem i do have is giving hand-outs to people that are just looking for hand-outs.

    i go by things ive experienced and witnessed myself, the majority of which were not positive. the last person i tried to help ended up stealing over $600 worth of DJ equipment from me. i got most of it back and took things from him to make up for what i didint get back. things like that are why i choose not to help people. not cause i think theyre all bad people or moochers. so your answer might reflect why you think i feel that way also.

    one bad guy does not make everyone bad.

    also, employed people steal too.



    EDIT: wait wait wait wait. you complain about people who don't want to help themselves. Then a guy shows some initiative and helps himself to your stuff and you complain about that too. I think you're just a misanthrope.

    C'mon 'koo...you're what, 19? The majority of your life experiences involve sleeping, eating, pooping, and jerking off.

    Tom's just saying to not make generalized judgments about things that you really don't know much about.
