"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

When I worked on Capitol Hill, just walking by Ron Dellums' office would get you high (unless you wore a gas mask).

I just heard an anecdote today about a woman I know who worked for Boehner several years ago. Besides the rumor that she and he had some kind of fling, it seems she was too much of a drunk even for him and he fired her - after she was peeled off the barroom floor on an occasion she tried to use her congressional credit card to buy another round.    0005   :thud:

I think they're all tripping on the most intoxicating drug of all - power.
