On cussing...

As a kid, I asked my father, a Methodist minister, if it bothered him when he heard people cussing. His answer was:

"People that cuss with words don't bother me. The people that bother me are the ones that cuss with their actions."

He may have gotten this from somewhere else, but as a kid this made a great impression on me.

The past is a cancelled check and tomorrow is a promisary note. Today is the only cash you've got, so spend it wisely.

Then there’s the Andy Warhol print “Airborne: We Kill for Peace”, the book “Kill for Peace” by Richard McSorley, or the satirical song “Kill For Peace” by the Fugs:

Kill, kill, kill for peace
Kill, kill, kill for peace
Near or middle or very far east
Far or near or very middle east
Kill, kill, kill for peace
Kill, kill, kill for peace ...

Come to think of it; why isn't Willie Nelson part of the cabinet? He has the tax history for it.

Seen on the door at Peabody's Bar & Grille in Old Towne Scottsdale AZ:

"Sailing is the art of being wet while going nowhere slowly at great expense."

And ain't that the truth...!

Etched on a small pebble, given to me by my daughter when I told her my concerns about setting sail for the first time (leaving Sunday - March 22, 2009 - weather permitting)

1. Courage - Feeling the fear and doing it anyway - Unknown

2. We will be sailing long after their's runs out of fuel - Unknown

In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

Steve B.
