10 Piankashaw Trail, Washington IN - we built this house with wood from Sugarland school I tore down, logs came from Montana model logs, stained glass window came from Hefron St Church of Christ, two interior cut glass panes came from St. Marys Catholic Church convent front doors. I did a remodel contract on St. Marys Church when Father Dieg told me they were going to tear down the convent soon. I told him the glass in the front doors would be nice in our new house. One day here he came with those doors sticking out his car trunk, he and I unloaded them, with his flowing black garment blowing in the breeze, it was quiet a sight. I told him how appreciative I was and he stepped back and said "your very welcome" with a big smile, got in his car and drove off.

Columbus did not seek a new route to the Indies in response to a majority directive. Governments never LEARN. Only people LEARN. Hell hath no fury like a bureaucrat scorned.
Paper money always returns to its intrinsic value – zero.
It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities The history of the great events of this world are scarcely more than the history of crime To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize
