Five Second ... Dave Barry

I picked up a copy of Bad Habits at the local book sale for a marginal cost of $0 a couple weeks ago (a buck a bag). A few of his early 1980s one-liners about government spending:

Wall Street fears the government because the government is Wall Street's major competitor in the worthless-pieces-of-paper business.

When I say "the nation," of course, I mean "government employees and maybe six or seven other people."

The Democrats believes that if God did not want them to raise taxes, He would not have created the Internal Revenue Service.

I mean, let's face it: the reason the government wastes hundreds of billions of dollars is that we GIVE it hundreds of billions of dollars. Even an intelligent organization would have trouble spending that much money usefully; the government can't even come close.
