    Will Rogers

    Will Rogers, who died in a plane crash with Wylie Post in 1935, was
    probably the greatest political sage this country has ever known. Enjoy the following:

    1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

    2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

    3. There are 2 theories to arguing with a woman...neither works.

    4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

    5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

    6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

    7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.

    8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

    9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

    10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

    11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

    12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started
    roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

    And finally - If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have
    anything to laugh at when you are old.

    Great words -
    Always drink upstream from the herd.
    And that for some reason always makes me chuckle

    My favorite quote by Will Rogers:

    I do not belong to any organized political party. I am a Democrat.
